I got my hands on a '76 Grabber the other day, she's a beaut! I just need to try and source a truss rod cover.

I like the look of that SG II. Is it just me though, or does that nut look really narrow compared to your SG to the left? I don't recognize that one btw, the mix of a gloss finish, dot inlays and chrome covered pickups has me wondering. Is it a modded Special, or maybe an Xtra Slim?

The SG on the left has had the chrome pickup covers when my mate had it.
I'll try to find a bit more out about it from him.
The SGII had a brass nut fitted, at my request, when it had its refinish.

The Xtra Slim had the smaller pick guard so I'd go for a modded Special

Good call! Hadn't thought of that.

It's not a Gibson Bass, but it's a Gibson 2018 SG Faded Worn Bourbon Guitar.

That is gorgeous, I wouldn’t have thought it but the light wood really suits it.

The back is unusual, too.
Inlaid logo - one of their limited runs. :)

Now that really isn’t fair, it was gorgeous from the front but that rear shot takes it to a new level. I am on the lookout for one now but guessing they don’t come cheap.

I have the guitar version of that - a 1972 SGII that I bought brand new.
It looked like this until the body got damaged and I had it refinished.

Very much so.  More versatile than the standard model but am still impressed with each of their capabilities and tones.  I need to improve to make the most of them!   Next is either a Victory Custom and/or an Ovation Magnum
