    May I join this party? (Still has the plastic on the pickguard lol). She’s a monster!

    Indeed it is! Killer guitars. Definitely going to pick up the white one at some point. I like them . Not in love with them, but time will tell. The bridge definitely reminds me of a dimarzio super distortion. I can’t find the exact specs on them. Supposedly they were designed by Jim Decola...

    Chrome isn’t my favorite but I think I’ll live with it. It’s a monster sounding guitar so best not go OCD on minuscule changes.

    True. Thanks for the reply. It might not be worth it. I have a feeling it might take some finish off the back side since it’s so tight on there.

    I have a Gibson V that I’m slowly changing the hardware from chrome to nickel on. Problem is, I can’t get the original Grover rotomatic out of the headstock. Small screw on the back is off, and the washer and nut are off of the front. Still won’t budge. Help!! Lol

    Set up question

    Oh....I actually sold the guitar. Just kidding. Yes, went back to 10s with no issues. I went down to 9s for about a year and a half after a hand injury (hard surface/hand/rope/bodyweight ;) ) . After my fretting hand got back to 100%, I went back 10s. Not the biggest jump in string gauge...

    Set up question

    This is probably a dumb question, but I digress... I had my SG set up for .10s about three months ago. One night I decided to put .9s on it to give them a try as it has been a while since I've played "light" gauge strings. I didn't make any set up adjustments, just put the .9s on and played...

    Question about 61 SG vibrato (unplugged sound)

    Do either of those strings sound that way when played open?

    What pickups are in Your SG? looking for opinions.

    So….I’ve got the Seymour Duncan “High Voltage” set in my 61 Standard. Worth every penny. Not as dark as a 57 classic, lots of clarity and punch without piercing highs.

    NGD 61 Standard Ebony

    Not the greatest representation, but it is a “sixties slim taper” neck. Thinner and flatter than a regular standard. The Ebony 61 standard I got definitely has a slightly chunkier feel to it, and is a tad wider as well. It’s also “taller” than my cherry 61.

    NGD 61 Standard Ebony

    Pulled the trigger on the 61 Standard in Ebony, “exclusive” from Gibson’s website. Been wanting another Ebony SG for awhile after I sold my 2017. Strange thing is the neck feels much more like a normal standard compared to my other 61 Standard. Aside from a chip in the binding near the nut...

    Should I Repair or Not? AY Thunderstruck

    You can avoid any repairs by just selling it to me :)

    Nines, Tens or Elevens? Advice for Noob

    I played 10s for a long time then went to 9s and loved them. The best thing I did for my SG after settling on 9s was having a bone nut and new ABR-1 cut/notched for that string gauge. Intonation and tuning are rock solid.

    Can't find pickguard for my 2018 Standard

    Creamtone makes an angel wing pick guard. Either “new” or “patina”. I’ve had both and they fit perfectly. They are wide bevel though.
