Nice score man!

I'm not much of an SG fan myself, but that one just looks a bit classy to me or something. Maybe it's just the common red livery you find SGs in that doesn't appeal to me.
Yeah I was shopping around for a few weeks trying to find something that was not cherry or black. I would have settled on a white standard. It is a shame they dont offer that many colors on the SG.

Another cool thing about the Tweedy SG is the finish on the neck.

That looks pretty nice. Bummer. Now I want one... I am not a fan of painted necks. That was probably one of the biggest problems I had with the one and only Gibson (A Custom Silver burst LP) I've ever owned.

Nice! I didn't realize the necks on the Tweedy SG were unpainted; looks the business.

One of my isolation projects has been slowly restoring a mid-60s SG Junior, and I had been considering doing something similar: painted body in Heather Poly (to hide some hideous chiseled cavities I'm working on covering up) with an unpainted satin nitro neck.

Most...but not all. Left out the basses, the Danelectro 12 string and the acoustics...

I have not seen an SG that colour before, it really suits it.
Thanks. It is a Jeff Tweedy SG. They made them for a short time in 2012. I think they call this color Blue Mist. It is like a darker Pelham Blue. It is my favorite modern SG variant, and told myself I would get one someday when I first saw one at a Sam Ash in 2012. They were quickly discontinued, they say only 300 were made, and prices climbed out of reach. I was searching for a SG Standard a few years back and found this one sitting on the local Craigslist for only a few hundred more than a used Standard. It felt like it was meant to be.
congrats on owning a tweedy. though i am so jealous! i saved up for the tweedy sg after it came out, and by the time i had the money, they were discontinued. it is my absolute favorite SG.

it's a aria legend body and a tele neck. i dont have many good pictures of it since it's really hard to get a photo of. i can try later if you want.
