Hello all,

I'm a mid-50s guitar noodler from Atlantic Canada and I have been a guitar picker for 40 of those years.

My first Ibanez was a brand new Rocket Roll II flying V with a beautiful sunburst flame maple top with gold hardware that I purchased in 1983 I believe but I foolishly sold it years ago, it was an excellent axe.

Just this past weekend I ended up trading my Gibson SG Standard for a mint condition SS300. Wow what a beautiful guitar!😆
It is a real looker and sounds as great as it looks. Top grade materials and flawless workmanship. Just stunning!

I was a bit surprised to see that it was made in China, I guess they have really upped their game over there in the quality dept. Simply beautiful work! I suppose that it would have been an extra couple grand if it had been made in Japan so I'm a happy camper.

I had gotten my SG at a good price used so when the dust settled on this trade for the SS300, I ended up having $600.00 USD into it. Super great deal for such a high quality guitar IMHO.
