    Bridge Upgrade

    Spec For 61 Reissue 2012 SG

    Anybody have the spec for this, is it actually a 61 reissue or is that phony and its just a stock Standard? How to tell? It looks like a black Standard with small pickguard and the usual tulip kluson tuners.

    ADVICE - Satin-finished 61 RI SG?

    Hey there! (First post here I think...) I've been looking into purchasing the Satin-finished '61 RI SG that debuted in 2012 (feel free to correct me if my facts are wrong). I've never owned a satin finished guitar before and have only heard negative things about them for both the Epiphone range...

    SG Original 2 - Tuning Issues Solved

    This is actually my first post on the board but I've been lurking around for a while since I got my first SG, looking for answers to my tuning issues. Clearly I'm not the first person that has run into this issue with the SG Original 2 and I certainly won't be the last, so I figure I ought to...
