    BZF on 2005 customshop SG?

    My guess is amber color in the clear coat gives the golden hue on the logo.

    There are a lot of "buckers" at Gibson! 😃

    Newbie needing some advice

    Dude, Just for a point of clarification, wouldn't your USA Standard 61 have been equipped with 60s Burstbucker pickups from the factory? I thought Custombuckers were exclusive to the Custom Shop... BTW, I've put Seymour Duncans in many guitars, and they never let me down! :dude:

    Has anyone ever created a viable alternative to the Walrus Tooth?

    Sorry, Dude. I was going to mention the teaspoon when I saw the thread title. Bigsby has several different handles. Perhaps one of them would work…

    the holy trinity

    I’m digging the figuring on the middle one! What’s the story on it? What Duncan pickups do you have loaded in there? :dude:

    Pelham blue SG custom

    I am partially colorblind, but that looks to me like an Inverness Green SG Custom. A beautiful guitar, regardless of the color!

    Can you cool cats tell me about this SG?

    Someone else would be correct.

    What year SG has your favorite carvings?

    Not a Gibson, but the carvings on the Jaydee Old Boy are about as nice as it gets (IMHO):

    Why I’m returning my new ‘61 Reissue SG

    There’s no guarantee of getting a keeper guitar, regardless of the year/era. The best practice is (if possible) “Try before you buy.” Otherwise, you’ll always be rolling the dice.

    1971 SG-200 I NEED THE BRIDGE!

    Gibson Deluxe tuners

    Hmm... The only options I'm seeing on that page are for buttons (single/double ring) and post height. They all require a 10mm hole for the threaded bushings. The Kluson Deluxe need an 8.8mm hole for push-in bushings. Sorry if I'm missing something, papagayo.

    Gibson Deluxe tuners

    This would require reaming out the post holes on the headstock, as the Schaller tuners need 10mm. Not a huge deal, but I don't know if @left-on wants to do that to a brand new Custom Shop SG...

    SG Bridge Pickup?

    @asdaven You might try using a different magnet in your existing pickup. Alnico 2,4 and an Unoriented Alnico 5 should all be warmer sounding than what you have.

    Gibson Deluxe tuners

    It's a transition model! :dude:

    Gibson QC is... incredible !

    You should've gotten the "Tony" version instead. They're much more consistent! 😁 Just kidding, Gary! That's a real bummer what happened in your case...
