Hi there first post here! I borrowed from a friend of mine this here brand new Epiphone SG Pro Custom Shop Limited Edition in this strange greenish/grayish color. I never owned an Epiphone (only Gibson stuff) and I'm pretty surprised on how resonant, playable and nicely sounding this litte thing is. A couple of questions: 1) Can anyone tell me for sure what kind of pickups are loaded on this guitar? I searched and the SG PRO has some kind of Epiphone Alnico Classic Pro 4, but I'm not sure if this "Custom Shop Limited Edition" has the same pickups, and I can't find a definite answer. 2) I owned a 2010 Gibson Les Paul Studio Faded Worn Cherry with stock pickups. I currently own a 2016 Gibson Les Paul Standard with Vineham custom pickups (based on Alnico II Pros) and a PRS Custom 24 with custom pickups from the italian luthier Romano Burini, modeled on classic PAFs. In comparison I find this Epiphone SG more aggressive sounding, I can definitely hear that peculiar tone everyone talks about (naturally these pickups are not even close to the pickups I have on the other guitars, especially on the clean channel, but they still are good!). The question is this: changing the SG stock pickups with something like the Alnico II Pros or PAFs will result in losing that peculiar SG tone or the guitar will retain it anyways? 3) In the clean channel, when I roll off the tone of either neck or bridge pickup, the sound becomes really muffled and muddy. Naturally, that doesn't happen in my other guitars. Could it be a problem of pots and electronics or the pickups are to blame? It would be nice to swap the pots, the capacitor and whatever and be able to get rid of this problem. 4) Is there a way to make the guitar more balanced when used with a strap? The upper pin in that position makes the guitar headstock dive down every 5 seconds... it's really bad. Thanks a lot in advance!
