    Hello All,
    I have playing a strat for about 30 years.
    Yesterday, I just bought my first Gibson, a 2017 Gibson SG Standard.
    I was searching info like fretboard conditioner, strings, pick-up height, etc... and came across this cool everything SG Forum.

    Fun times ahead!

    Hail,

    Just have not had the chance to come across a SG with that finish. Really nice.

    Just out of curiosity, do you use recommend any local Chicago area music stores or repair shops?




    Still consider myself a Chicagoan.

    Sorry for the very late reply! I recently started getting into doing all of my own guitar work, really like it. I started with a craigslist guitar, then some of my friends beater guitars, and now really like working on my guitars. Fret leveling, re-crowning, new nuts, complete set-ups, and finish touch ups is where I am so far.
    I have received excellent work from a luthier in Glen Ellyn IL, Bob from RMS guitar service. Excellent re-fretting, set-ups.
