This SG features Alnico classic pro pickups and push/pull coil-splitting. I cannot say enough about how incredible this guitar is. I am blown away by how great it feels and plays. I never expected something like this for the price. I got this just to have a "cheap" guitar that I could travel with, leave in hotel rooms, lean anywhere, get dinged up, let people borrow, etc. What I got is waaaay to awesome to consider a "dispensable" guitar, so to speak. Since 2014.
