Only thing i can tell for certain is that i collected really cool SGs throghout the latest years and none of these SGs are gonne be sold.
Still i want two more SGs and maybe i will be forced to sell some of my SGs
Are there two personalities living in your head? Looks like one will never sell, while the other is contemplating it. Those two better have a discussion and figure things out.

To be honest, at this point i am not sure about anything

The truth is that i probably dont really need to refinish this guitar
But i want Gibson SG faded and some SG with p90s or getting gibson p94 pickups for some of my current SGs - also an option
But still i would like to have some TV yellow or pelham blue or white SG.
You will not get the real P90 tone with a P94.

Its not gonna be done by me, guitar luthier maker will do all of it - get rid of the old finish and apply the new one
I will just pay for it and wait for it, i was told its gonna be around 200€ which is acceptable for me for a "custom" refinish in nitro
Pelham blue is leading as i see it, the question is - satin or gloss pelham blue?
GLOSS Pelham Blue.

WOW, Eu200 ? and the entire guitar is being painted ? All the hardware taken off, Control cavity, and all inside, removed ? .....and then guitar will be stripped and then repainted? and reassembled after drying ? That is a lot of work for Eu 200/$220...I'd imagine YOU are taking the guitar apart and handing over the Guitar with everything removed ?

I say this due to the fact that that is what I paid (USD $200 + $20 Tip) to have a FIREBIRD Neck refinished (Masking/Wet-Sanded/Repainted w/1.5 Ozs Ebony, then .5 Ozs of Clear Coat was applied....but that was it....and the Tuning Machines were removed/re-installed by ME) @ a Custom Auto Body Shop in N E USA about a year and a half ago.The Custom Auto-Body shop was the only place I could find that would do the work without keeping my guitar for 6-8 weeks......and I got to watch the Man do the work as well.

Well @MR D this is a good point, i need to ask if the 200 Eur is for everything or only refinishing

How different is it?
What makes a P90 tick is its massive bobbin. A P94 is only a hot single coil (à la Fender) under a humbucker cover.

There just isn't enough space at both ends of a P94 bobbin to wind a coil as fat as a P90

Ok this makes sense
I aint a huge fan of hot single coils a la fender so p94 isnt probably the exact replacement for a p90.

as @DrBGood stated
sand the whole back of your epi with smooth sand paper and appy some polish on it...
i think thats a good choice, that the area around the repair will be barely visible.

nice epi, by the way!
