    Welcome; I'm a new member too as I only joined last week after I bought mine.

    Here is my 2018 SG Standard in Cherry with a few minor changes to knobs, truss rod cover and switch tip. Just about to be plugged into my Marshall in this shot:

    Ask and you shall receive!

    spend more time playing instead of drooling over guitars and you will surely be a better player than me ;)

    Angle of the photo; the back of the neck is resting on the cabinet below. Believe me I made sure it wasn't going anywhere before I took the picture. ;):smile:

    New user here! This is my first post - 2018 SG Standard in Autumn Shade. I love the unusual wood grain. I like messing around and learning about how this stuff works, so I'm about to re-wire it with a SD WLH Bridge and (probably) a Vineham Womanizer neck. I'm also in the midst of replacing all the hardward with nickel hardware just because I like that look!

    Careful with that amp in the cabinet. It may overheat.

    It's fine...always run with the door open and in 5 watt mode at home. If I shut the door I wouldn't get my cable plugged in. :D

    WELCOME TO ETSG! to all the new guys especially...

    I intend to take some new photos of my instruments,
    now that I've completed moving to a totally new environment.

    I sold a lot of my stuff to prepare for the move, including some
    of my guitars. I "fostered" a couple of instruments I couldn't bear
    to sell. But I kept my two SGs.

    ETSG wisdom states:
    IF YOU NEED MONEY
    DON'T SELL YOUR SG...
    SELL SOMETHING ELSE.

    I wholeheartedly support this maxim. We see lots of posts on this
    forum from players who say something like:

    "Yeah, I used to own an SG like that. It was the best guitar I ever had.
    It was a (your fave year here) SG with (your fave p'ups here)
    and was finished in (your fave color, cherry red here). I stupidly sold it,
    because somebody told me that Strats had more sustain,
    or Les Pauls were a rippier sound, and I fell for that.
    I wish I had that one back again."

    So here's some favorite old photos of my favorite Gibson guitars.
    I didn't sell them. I sold guns, tools, fishing lures, all my "vintage"
    instruments, books, recordings, furniture... but I kept my Gibson guitars.
    3 Gibsons@100.jpg
    Left to Right:
    Luna: my #1, the Queen of my music room... a 2007 SG faded special modded with
    Tone pros tuners, Buzz Feiten shelf nut, custom TRC, Gibson '57 classic and Classic Plus
    pickups, Tone pros bridge and tail, high quality wiring harness from Martin SixString and
    a hand carved (by me) walnut pick guard. Luna weighs 6 3/4 pounds, balances perfectly
    and is the best guitar of any kind that I have ever played. Every time I put this guitar back
    on her stand after playing, it's with the unspoken or spoken comment: "What a great guitar."

    Zelda: My 2018 J-45 Avante Guarde. I bought this one as soon as I heard that Gibson was really
    headed for bankruptcy. I thought, "I'm not waiting to see what happens afterward, I'm going to
    get one NOW, before everything changes." So I did. Zelda was made in Bozeman MT in January
    of 2018, and Gibson didn't declare bankruptcy for another few months. Zelda is the most interesting acoustic guitar I have ever owned. She's got walnut back and sides, maple neck,
    Spruce top, walnut fretboard, walnut bridge... Tusq bridge saddle and string nut, LR Baggs
    Element under-saddle pickup. This is the only NEW acoustic guitar I have ever owned in my
    many years of playing. All my other acoustics were bought used. She was very bright sounding
    when brand new, so I've modded her with Ebony bridge pins, bluegrass style "light/medium"
    strings and a set of Waverly tuners. It's been fascinating to hear her tone mellow as I've turned
    her from a new stiff instrument to a road warrior. Zelda rocks too...

    April: My 2012 SG special "70s Tribute..." This was one of the most unusual SGs I'd seen
    since I started haunting guitar fora in like 2008. There are a lot of unusual SGs, as we
    all know. But this 2012 SG special is the first one I'd seen with mini hum buckers.
    As soon as I read Gibson's description of this model in 2012, I wanted one. This one has
    the '70s style oversize headstock, a maple neck, a silver burst finish, Gibson's "baked maple"
    fretboard, acrylic "small block" inlays, Gibson 500k pots, no PCB....

    WOW, I said. All these innovations were too much for normal Gibson critics, and the response
    to these features was mostly scathing and negatory. Even on this forum. Until one by one, guys
    bought one and checked it out and found that it rips. During this time of slow acceptance, Gibson
    kept marking them down. I finally pounced when they marked it down below $600, and I couldn't
    resist any more. *grins ...I got mine in like April of 2013, hence the name. Now it's 2019 and I'm
    still head over heels for this guitar. April ain't for sale, unless I get too stiff in the fingers.

    Gibson has re-issued this model, with normal rosewood in place of the 'baked maple" fretboard,
    and very cool new colors, and they are better accepted and sell just fine. Players now know that the mini hums are great pickups. In 2012, nobody (but me) could figure out what they were good for, and Gibson had to mark them down, to my delight.
