    Howdy from Florida. I'm Jon. Jon Peavey. (No relation to Hartley)
    I've been in love with the SG since I was a kid but grew up a Strat guy and just never had the cheddar to pick myself up an SG. Four kids and a truckload of Mexican Strats later I stumbled upon an EPI SG (not pictured) for $200 on consignment in a local music store. I never could quite get everything I was looking for out of the EPI. But the stars never aligned for me to get that Gibson until my father in law came over for a fish fry at the house one summer day and began inquiring about the various Tele and Strats littering every corner of the living room. Long story short he gave me the cash to find what I wanted and pick up a quality instrument because I'm steady gigging now and have held down a real job for a few years, taking good care of his daughter, and the kids bla bla etc etc lol.
    I'm looking to make new pals who are into SG's and talk shop with anyone who's interested. There's a couple of minor mods I'd like to make to my SG but I wanna be certain I'm getting the good stuff and not junk. I figured this would be a great place to start and get familiar with folks who are knowledgeable about the SG. Hit me up.

    Apologies for no pic of the SG. I tried to upload six different pics but it kept telling me an error occurred and the file was to large. Will post a pic after some sleep.

    Wilkinson makes some very nice affordable aftermarket parts when you start tearing into her.

    Welcome! I hope you enjoy your stay here! What model is your SG? A Special? A Faded? A Standard?

    Pretty much anything. I've played everything. Right now it's blues based swamp rock Americana.

    I thought we passed through Madison fleeing the hurricane, turns out I was wrong.

    Madison isn't far from me at all. I go fishing out that way a few times a year.
