    Hey guys,

    So I have 12 guitars of which 3 are SG/G-400's. A 2015 Epi Iommi SG Custom, A heavily modified 2016 Epi G-400 Pro, and a 2004 flamed maple sunburst Epi G-400.

    Anyways, I look forward to learning from you and helping whenever I can.

    Dave

    I have Gibson SG's but my primary player right now is my G-400. Has the sound I want!

    XXX-SG Pro After.jpg Finally found a pic of at least one of my SG's small enough to upload (2016 Epi G-400 Pro, Seymour Duncan "Whole Lotta Humbucker" in the Neck, Duncan Alternative 8 Humbucker in the Bridge, Bigsby B5, roller bridge, CTS 500k push-pull volume pots...).

    I love the look of a Bigsby trem. Very retro, much mojo.

    I think you're gonna do fine here. :D. Welcome to the asylum!
    I was gonna do a set of WLH's in mine! I scrapped the idea and went Carvin S22J & S22B wired to SD Triple Shot rings when I decided to "sound like me". I also did the roller bridge in anticipation of getting a B5 / Vibramate. My buddy and mentor @Dave Johnson drilled it for grub screws and turned it into a locking bridge.

    Raiyn, I did something similar for my Rickenbacker 481 (Jetglow). I bought the cheapest chrome roller bridge I could find and cannibalized it for everything I needed to modify the repro-Rick bridge into a full roller setup. I did have to get some SS screws for it, but it all went together well and it works good with the Bigsby B5 I have on that guitar also. A stealth Rick roller bridge if you will.

    I had a feeling I was gonna like you!

    BTW, the "reply" tag gives you the quote bubble, and the "+quote" is for the multi-quote function - so you can respond to more than one post at a time.
