Nope.

Still don't dig 'em.

The Riviera headstock suits the Riviera as it's in proportion to the size of the guitar but it looks ridiculous on a Les Paul or other small bodied guitar.

I could give a shit about the headstock if they'd ditch that awful 60's Slim Taper D profile.

after looking at all of the NAMM offerings and a few youtube videos, they don't look that bad in real life and I am 100% down with this SG Custom. I really dig the headstock with the binding and it has an ebony fingerboard.

It looks like it has the '61 style joint, which worries me. I've seen too many g400s snap right at the heel. A few of the other SGs have the same heel as modern SGs, which is a major improvement imo.
