Hi all. I picked up this guitar with the typical neck at body break fully loaded with EMG’s for next to nothing. I planned on stripping the parts and doubling my money. Well, I ended up trying to fix the broken spot and ended up having issues with the neck setting and had to re-break it. The glue didn’t set right and it was knocked over on the stand before it had set and was left there to dry. I assume the dog did it and I didn’t go back into that room for a few days to see the carnage. Anyway... I re-broke the neck, sanded the pieces and re-glued it to make it stick. (Keep in mind the body was free on this flip). I found a guy locally that wanted the EMG’s and paid what I bought the guitar for. After gluing the neck, I didn’t refinish like I initially set out to do. Instead I left the excess glue on and did a few more mods. First.... my biggest pet peeve with SG’s is the jack location. I put a bolt in the jack hole to close it up and drilled a hole into the edge of the body. Then I made a copper “jack plate” for it. The Guitar had a hole in the top horn that looked like it was started for a strap button, so I finished the hole and popped the strap button on. I added some PAF style humbuckers to it and out of all my guitars she gets played the most. I’ve had a few SG guitars in the past and couldn’t bond with them for some reason. This one is kind of a junk yard dog that I can’t seem to get rid of. I have had a few offers from guys that have played it and I’ve declined every time. I do side work on guitars and I’m a collector as well; this being both my only Epiphone and only SG. Next, I’m going to remove most the finish, paint it black primer, then red primer and a mint primer and add some pinstriping then sand it back to make it look more like a old patina. And I’m also adding a new set of pickups (not sure what yet), new wiring/pots and a Bigsby B5 I found used for next to nothing. Seeing as how this guitar was going to be thrown away or used as wall art, I’m glad I didn’t do either.
