I've Googled high and low, but can't find any price points or indication if this is too expensive:

Gibson Classic SG With Hardshell Case, P90's

Seriously wanting to take the jump and get a Special but I don't want to spend the 1500 or so for the other models. Does anyone own this guitar, or can they offer some advice?

Play it firstfor sure. This is not a 61 - 63 reissue btw. It has the modern pickguard and neck joint. Not necessarily a bad thing. I prefer the old ones without the cowboy pickguard and big block neck joint myself. Not a bad price if it is a player.

Stage Guitars: '80s Thin line LP Custom, '70 LP Standard, '83 Squier Black Headstock Strat w/ Dan Torres pickups, '59 Black Danelectro DC, sometimes others.

Pedal Board: Nady UHF 10 -> TU2 -> Rocktron Big Crush -> 70s MXR Phase 100 -> Cry Baby -> Bad Monkey -> Early '80s Rat -> Early '80s Ibanez CS 9 -> Ibanez DE 7 -> Behringer Dr 100 Stereo Reverb

Stage amps: '63 Blonde Tremolux w/ two original 2X10 cabinets with a '60 Ampeg Rocket/18 watt VTB Marshall clone/ Epi VJ into a Mashall 1965A

I'd sya this might eb overpriced, 850 is Guitar cEnter's price for a brand new Les Paul 60s tribute with P90s. A new SG with P90s can be had for 1000, so maybe it's in line with SG prices...

Talking about wireless pedals...

Only to realize those pedals were hooked up to the bass!
