      Too bad they screwed up and made it backwards . . . otherwise that would be a pretty nice SG.

                  I've only ever seen one other like it. That was on Ebay about five years ago. I can't even remember what year it is. I think it's 96-98.

                      My Johnny A - had to look for years before finding a nice one without the Bigsby.
                      Sorry about the crap photos taken with my old phone.

                        And a custom Orville, special ordered in raspberry quilt with gold hardware and matching headstock.
                        Made with a long tenon neck and no pickguard or pokerchip.
                        There's a cherry red one listed on eBay for $4K but I've never seen another in raspberry.

                            Funny story about him.
                            About 15 years ago he played a small club here in Rhode Island. A local bass player that I knew from the cover band scene was touring with him.
                            So a handful of us went to the show and in between songs I yelled out “JESSE!!!!!” a few times. (He was the bass player)
                            Johnny A actually went to the mic and *****ed me out saying something to the effect that it was “HIS” show and that HE should be the one being called out to. I’m totally paraphrasing but that’s the basic idea.

                              Also not a custom shop, but I have swapped pickups to a Custom Custom bridge and a Bluesbucker neck and redid the wiring in it. And the neck pickup is on a push/pull for series/parallel. Tusq nut and Graphtech saddles.
