I was wasting time on GC web site late last week and saw this for sale in a store IA. I knew it was desirable because of the head stock logo but there were no pics on the serial number. I have been researching the NC, YN VN Squiers for some time. I called on Thursday and as he read me the serial number I knew I had to pull the trigger. Its color and maple neck screamed "Blackie" to me. It also has a 12" radius neck that something I have been after. Whenever I play an SG a music store it really feels good. I just can't swing the price It arrived Friday afternoon. I haven't had a chance to play it much but I did take a few pics. Here ya go! I do have a question regarding the frets. (Pictures 4 & 5) On the treble side the frets look flat (or filed down?) down to me. Most if not all of the frets look that way. Is that normal? I figure if its is really an issue I can always return it.
