Hi, I recently got a used SG with a sideways trem. My first sideways trem.
I does not really work... There is a piece of wood wedged under there... Should it be like that? Or tried the former owner to block it?

Also the wiring looks kinda non original... is a 3 Pickups SGS.

What do you think?

You could maybe get your hat blocked around here some fine day, with a question like that.

That one looks like the Tremolo has been somehow disabled...those sideways tremolo's are sooo COOL lookin', but they suck and just dont hold tune....I wanted one after seeing Rev Billy Gibbons has one...'Li'l RED' I think he calls it ! Make mine a BLACK SG Standard w/Gold Sideways tremolo......really do look the COOLEST ! I still want one.....

W.A.M....thats right.....I did have one, and I had to send it back as it had Fret-Board ROT...Now I Remember....It was one of the ones from the batch of axes that Anderton's U.K. refused delivery on….

I even hav a picture (Black SG Standard w/Gold Hware w/3 ‘57’s BAD ASSSS ERY)…..and ,of course, cant UPLOAD it ! FFS !
