    Just wanted to pop in and say thanks for having me in this great forum.
    I've been a fan of the SG since I was a kid, playing a friends '68 which I still would love to get from him.

    My SG is a 2013 70's Tribute that I've fiddled with a bit. Changed the pickups to PAFs from an 80's LP, knobs and truss rod cover. Little things that are easily reversible.
    Sorry about the crappy pic, I never realized how much of a pain it is to try and get a guitar all together in one picture.

    Welcome to ETSG forums OMGCat !

    I got a 70's tribute also.

    Below is a picture of it with a custom SGJ batwing pickguard from a place called "Precision Guitars".

    I did away with the open coil 57 pickups and installed some LP HP burstbuckers.

    Also got rid of the pickup rings in the process.

    It seems like the sound of the guitar got snappier/brighter with the bigger piece of plastic behind the strings.

    Pretty happy with it.

    Looking forward to your future posts !
