    I've lurking for a while, especially last month when I was contemplating a 2013 Gibson SG Future Tribute with robot tuners. I ended up buying it. My path into Gibson ownership is through an '81 LP Standard that my Dad purchased backbun the mid 80's. Not sure if it has Shaws, but it sounds great. It is a player, having seen a lot of studio use from the previous owner. Nice mojo.

    I've played primarily a 2000's MIM Strat Deluxe and realized I liked 12" fretboards. I saw my Sterling SUB Silo also had a 12" FB. I looked at my 81 LP and realized I liked the feels and saw that it was also 12" but of a different scale. These were my only guitars for a while but I have since added a Peavey Predator AX and Milestone (guitar, with the toaster pups).

    My SG Future is chocolate satin and it feels great, and the 60's asymmetric neck mixed with the 24 frets and SG slim body makes this a tone scalpel! I play many genres from gypsy- influenced harmonic minor licks, to ambient, to stoner doom blues. I'm not a shredder, I'm primarily a Bass player so I bring the heavy groove.

    I just purchased an Epiphone G-400 online from GC. I will pick up this weekend. It has a set neck, and was listed as wine red. It has a full Batwing, but it appears the PO may have flipped the rear humbucker around. I've been tempted to get a P90 Epi LP Special, but I liked the SG shape and set neck, that I may end up turning this to my P90 guitar. I don't think I'll rout the body, just get HB sized P90's.

    Great forum! My name is NomeX, and I love SG's.

    The Epiphone SG I'm picking up.

    These photos were too big to upload, so here's the links:

    My gibson 2013 Future Tribute with Gruv Gear 4" Solo Strap (which I bought for my '81 LP Standard) :

    My Dad's 2015 Gibson SG that he bought after borrowing my Future Tribute for a couple weeks:

    Shot of my amps that I play through (the Realistic 212) got cut off:

    The Realistic 212 that sounds even more amazing with a BK Tube Overdrive and a Morley Cliff Burton Power Wah Fuzz:

    Heavy Peavey amp love:

    MOAR Univox Reverb atop Peavey Rockmaster and Roadmaster Amps with my Fender Super Twin Reverb:

    That should be enough photos for a while until I relocate the studio.

    Welcome to ETSG NomeX. Nice axes. We have lots of perty' geetars' here for you to look at. And the occasional useful piece of knowledge from the forum veterans. But mainly nice guitars! :D

    some amps.

    Main amp for guitars. Nice Reverb, gets dirty with my BK Real Tube Overdrive or my Cliff Burton Power Wah Fuzz. A flick of the volume cleans up as well. Love dynamic tube amps!


    For maximum headroom or wall shaking. You do not want to go to 11 with these.

    I replaced the speakers on the Fender STR with some Hempopotamus Hemp red dot 12's (per Jason at Hemp-O: The numbers on these are a power range of 5-250 watts, an SPL of 96, impedance of 8 Ohms each, and a range of around 60-70 Hz up to over 6 KHz , with their "Dual Element Red-Eye Frequency Extension System"....)


    Mostly Peavey power amps and preamps. Wish I got into racks a couple years ago, when you could get these cheap. I did okay, but man, people did not want these things a few years ago, it seems.

    I really like the Realistic 1968 tube combo. I bet it is MIJ. What kind of power tubes I'm wondering?
