    I seem to have a theme here. Maybe an affliction?

    I bought the SG used, previous owner had put a SD in it but kept the original Epi bridge pickup so I swapped the original back in. It's one of the later Korean-made SGs (I have an early red Korean made SG I got over the summer to repair and flip, I finished the repairs but need to do the flip part still).

    The body on this black SG has a crack that runs diagonal across the thin section of the control cavity, apparently the prior owner fell on it. It's glued solid and the finished corrected, but under the factory black finish where some finish flakes were lifted it revealed the body sports a red factory finish hiding under it. I've heard that any time a quality issue crops up on the SGs they send it back through the system and turn it into a black SG.

    Umm yeah I agree.....they can turn any non pretty grain into any color solid painted guitar....of course they would use better/more figured/matching wood for see thru finishes but that isn't always the case. I have seen numerous redone guitars on the webz that had some sweet wood underneath. Old Gold Top LP's come to mind.......

    My 2001 SG special. To my knowledge it is a regular production model, though it has the ABR-1 bridge. Currently has an old Dimarzio Super Distortion in bridge position and a Super 2 in neck position. Sounds amazing, punchy, snappy and still bold. Often using it with my modified Fender Blues JR together with a treble booster for that old school 70's Judas Priest tone.
