    Using The Pickup Configuration’s That Guitars Are Coming With.

    Be on the lookout for a 2018 Gibson SG hp II. They have the PCB that has programmable pull-up pots for either of those functions. In my opinion printed circuit boards don't negatively effect the sound in any way. For a while there was a steady stream of these SG hp II circuit boards for sale by...

    Made my decision on an SG need some advice.

    Try to scrape up an extra hundred dollars to add to your next payment. Send in the payment, wait a few days, then you should be good to go. I always have them tell me the last few digits of the serial number of what they have to sell, then I select the guitar that has an ending sequence that's...

    Visited a 2022 SG Standard

    Good luck with the one that's on the way, keep us posted ! I dug out my 2012 and it does show finer craftsmanship than my 2017. Without a doubt, it's the best one I own. If that 2010 is in perfect unplayed condition, you should definitely grab it , either way !

    Some help with pickups for an Epiphone SG Muse?

    I have 3 SG Muse's, The pickups that come in them are fine, the people that built those guitars made the pickups to the highest standards. In my opinion, sound wise, they're equal to the stock pickups in my 2018 Gibson SG HP's. I did install a pickguard on one of them and secured the stop bar...

    New player

    If you get something like this - Newark NDX-500 You can load in a song, then lock the key its in, then slow it down and figure out every note. Back when I started playing, all you had was a record player to slow stuff down with. From the instructions -...

    Special NGD

    People really need to get over the notion that all stuff made in China is poor quality. I worked shoulder to shoulder with a guy from China for years, he had the utmost integrity and honor. The Epiphone SG's I recently purchased are fantastic !

    Weird logo on a standard '98

    Either way, I'm glad they resumed the stamping method.

    Weird logo on a standard '98

    Didn't the guy that actually own the machine retire and take it with him ? Something like that . . .

    Weird logo on a standard '98

    It sure is odd that Gibson would use decals during that 3 year period. Does anybody know why ? What happened to the stamping machine ?

    Weird logo on a standard '98

    I agree with you, Decadent Dan, I too would be suspicious of that one. Doesn't Gibson always stamp the serial number into the headstock ? I believe that's so if/when its refinished the serial number remains. A long tradition that's not easy to duplicate, you'd have to have the machine that...

    Drunken Impulse Buy: 2017 SG Special T Sunburst

    2017 is known to be a good year for SGs. I know I love mine. No neck binding so no nibs, that's a plus. As long as its not worn out you'll love it !

    Show me your Telecasters

    Too bad that video didn't include Keith Richards playing a killer lead limited to only 4 notes. Through an old EL84 tube amp wfo. With that look on his face . . .

    Man, was I dreading this post. He was the heart and soul of this forum site. I don't suppose that it could be renamed - "Biddlin's ESG" ?

    Considering Other Guitars

    I have been through a ton of guitars, the one I like next to an SG is an ESP/LTD H1001 . The older version with EMG's. Seems like when they built these in Korea years ago, they were shooting for the best they could do, within reason.

    Another new SG....

    That's pretty sad, thanks for the update, Dan.
