    I highly doubt it is possible for a guitar to be cooler than that. Just plain awesome.

    Sorry for re-posting these photos, but photobucket seem not to work here anymore. Anyway here is my 1969 SG Standard.

    Here is my 64 with some hardware modifications. The previous owner butchered it. I fixed a few things and am thinking about what I might do to get it closer to original.

    I dig it. You would need a full Vibrola to cover the holes from that sawed off B3, i like it like it is now.

    Well, it's a safe bet that there aren't too many SG's out there that resemble yours with that snazzy Bigsby set-up y'all got going on. Although of course it's not original it is still a way cool 'original' looking SG.

    My only question is how well does it work at keeping the strings in place across the bridge? And bridge buzz from being too loose (not enough down-force from the string break-angle)?

    Ok so they're technically not SGs. My all original 68 melody maker bass and my 71 EB-0 bass completely restomodded.

    What do you mean, they're not SGs ? Of course they are !

    I had the same exact MM in Red, bought new in 1970.

    Thought I'd repost this from page 2 since Photobucket images went AOL.

    My 1967 Standard.

    Neat to see a '64 with a batwing added. It actually points out a difference that makes the bevels look less deep on batwings even if they're not; the batwing pickguard does not come nearly as close to the edge as the angel wing. I'm surprised not to see any exposed holes from the original guard though.
