    Hi All

    Just got my first SG ..a used Cherry VS6 with gold hardware
    the tone post for the front pickup doesn't appear to alter anything.
    Anyone else find that?
    i have tried another one one a few weeks ago which seemed to be the same..

    I have a VS6. It is a late 2018 model. The tone pots work as expected. I am very please with it. I have considered changing the pickups but they work well and I can modify the sound readily with my Katana amp.

    Mine is from late 2018. Its serial number is: M201706377

    I have no idea what their serial number sequence is. There is a Vintage US facebook group that may be able to give some idea.

    Those Vintage guitars look great. I thought about getting one but the markup imposed by the Australian distributor is too much. On a straight conversion they should be about $500 AUD but the places selling them here are asking $800 AUD. :shock:

    Have you looked inside the control cavity? Maybe the previous owner disconnected the pot for some reason.

    I have two, a V6 Strat clone and a VS6 SG clone. The fit and finish are excellent and they play well. The luthier at the local shop thinks highly of them and set them up to my preference upon purchase. I paid a little over $400 for each. They are a very good buy at that price.
