Unobtrusive but lovely grain, congrats, Bling!
Thanks guys! It looks like it might be a two piece body in certain light, in other lighting it looks like one piece. Does anyone know if the 61 RI is supposed to be one piece or multiple pieces?
I suppose it really doesn't matter as it wouldn't make a difference tone wise.
heres a couple shots showcasing the wood grain. this one was the most visually appealing to me on sweetwaters website, and it just so happened to be the weight i wanted too.
Mahogany has a way of masking seams, but I agree with you that it's largely irrelevant to tone.
Glue makes it one piece.
WELCOME TO ETSG
and congratulations on an excellent choice of guitar.
The sensations you describe are known as "bonding with your guitar...'
It's a fine process, and one that should not be interfered with.
What the bonding process does is enhance your music.
If you play on an instrument you've bonded with, your music may
improve, and become more effective.
That's priceless. So don't f*ck with it... let it take its course.
Don't worry about small details. It's the big picture that will
add a new dimension to your music.
Play the hell out of it. Which in the case of the SG guitar
is actually not possible. Play loud, play long, play hard,
and you'll find there's plenty of hell left. *grins
Anyway, welcome to the monkey house. Your among
kindred spirits here.
Thanks everyone! It's good to be active on ETSG!
This guitar stays in my hands a lot. Often times I'll have it in my lap when I'm surfing forums.
I think about this guitar while im at work. I wonder if it thinks about me?
Like your SG, Bling. Very beautiful.
Beautiful guitar, now undeck your fucking tailpiece.
lol yeah i thought about that too, it came from sweetwater like that, but it plays great as is... so im gonna leave it for a while until i do a setup on it. it honestly doesnt need one but im sure i could make it play better as ive been doing setups for many years.
By the way, is the top-wrap discussion a thing here, too?
I might top wrap the next time I change strings.
It's a thing here too.
Yeah, that's bugging me too.
And scratch your new tail piece?
i undecked the tailpiece and installed an amber switch tip tonight. my strap locks came in the mail today but ill probably wait till the weekend to install those.
I had to do a double-take, I thought it was a Historic with those crisp bevels and beautifully selected grain!
And if you got the 2018, you wouldn't have gotten those nice deeper bevels, nickel hardware, the '61 style heel and control positioning, and the TonePros/Kluson tuners (2018s came with Grovers).
Someone shoot me now.
pickguard on or off?
