    Best Pickups for Heavy Metal, Thrash Metal, Death Metal, etc.

    I think your SG will be fine with the stock pickups, most of my guitars have A2 magnets, its really about the amount of gain you put through them and if you like the pickups tonally. When you get the guitar let us know what you think of it. Good luck! :yesway:

    Amp Recommendations?

    I thought the Supro Delta King 10 was a pretty cool amp I tried recently, check one out. Single channel tube combo, reverb, footswitchable gain and boost feature, they make a smaller and bigger version of the 10 if you prefer a different size but I thought the 10 was perfect!

    490s, 498s, that are both stamped with "T" and not "T" / "R"

    490T is a bridge pickup, 490R is a neck pickup. If both your pickups have T then you have two bridge pickups.

    SD Antiquity JB for SG Bridge???

    What do you think of the JB? Personally I think they are too hot and honky sounding, I suggest 57C or 57C+ depending what you like. Another good one is Burstbucker 2.

    BURSTBUCKER 2 or 3 or '61R ?

    Put Burstbucker 1 at the neck. Ive paid under $100 several times for used burstbucker pickups.

    BURSTBUCKER 2 or 3 or '61R ?

    I just put a BB1 in the neck of my SG to get a bluesier and brighter tone than the 57C that was in there. Also put a 57C+ in the bridge to get a little hotter and darker tone than the 57C that was in there. So far so good although I am missing the 57C in the bridge a little bit. You can find...

    Gibson 'Faded' Finishes

    I would wet sand it with very fine paper to get the drip marks out and leave it be. :yesway:

    Not at the moment, I have alot of pickups and juggle through them.

    Please help identify this Custom Shop SG ('61 or '64?)

    I thought all the reissues were 61, I never heard of a 64.

    NGD - The praise over the '57 Classics is well justified

    You are correct, good stuff! I have an SG with a pair of 57 Classics and it sounds fantastic, and another with 57 Classic Plus in the bridge which is a little bit hotter and darker sounding which is equally as good. :yesway:

    Replacement nut and wiring harness suggestions

    Crazy glue the nut back together and move on. Make a harness yourself, you'll be proud of it regardless how it comes out. :yesway:

    Nut on my SG is a bit wonky

    Probably nothing wrong with the nut, the guitar probably needs a complete setup since you put lighter strings on it, adjust the truss rod, adjust the bridge saddles for intonation, adjust the bridge height, adjust pickup height, put some graphite or vasaline in the nut slots. Might as well oil...

    SG Homicide Frankentar

    That looks like it would be a fun restoration project, route out the holes in the back and fill them with new mahogany, patch the holes in the front, if it comes out good stain it if not paint a solid color. Maybe restore those P90's if salvageable, reuse the knobs, get a new pickguard and...

    Neck relief

    If you have no fret buzz then no point in adjusting the neck, a new set of strings will make more difference. :yesway:
