    For 30 years I have been a Fender man. Now I am the proud owner of this 2011 Pete Townshend SG Special. Very satisfied! [​IMG]

    Congratulations! I think P90's will be a different experience for you.

    Great guitar! Welcome to the SG site! Pete Townsend was one of my favorite guitarists and songwriters so I love your choice!

    Magnifico. Truly a fine instrument. That was my first SG purchase which quickly led to others. That one has a special place in my heart.

    Ich habe keine weißen Gitarren. Wie kann das sein? Früher hatte ich eine schöne weiße Strat, aber es ging seinen eigenen Weg.

    Congrats on a fantastic Gibson SG... :cheers:. I can honestly vouch for how nice the 50th Anniversary PT SG is. I was fortunate to add one of these to my harem 4 years ago.

    My original intention was to not make any changes on it, but I just couldn't help myself. It's not fair to use the word "upgrade", so I'll describe the changes as "different-grade".

    I replaced the stock bridge studs with a set of Schroeder Top-Adjustable Locking Studs. This keeps the bridge from angling or tilting forward. I'm not sure why Gibson doesn't manufacture tighter tolerances here... :hmm:.

    Replaced the stock lighting bolt wraptail with a Schroeder wraptail with adjustable saddles. I really like Schroeder products!

    And last year I replaced the excellent Gibson P90s with a set of just as excellent, Wolfetone P90s. Different flavor!

    I love ... LOVE ... those '60s SG Special reissues. They look cool, they sound cool, they just are cool. Enjoy it. And you've passed the audition, welcome to the SG club!

    Congrats on the real deal! I have a similar Epiphone that I will be selling off to afford my GAS habit

    Super cool SG! I LOVE P90s and wraptails (have an LP Special), but have never tried an SG with them.

    Love the colour, too. :cheers:
