    My God, you knocked the mods out of the park with these two!! The Classic with the wraparound and the DT with the pickguard and without the weird non-funcional vibrola plate... Classy and awesome, congrats!!!!

    That white reissue is so beautiful. I don't need one, but I want one.

    The Fireburst is needing a new nut for the 3rd time and I'm kinda tired of replacing them. Probably going to try the tusq because for whatever reason the titanium isn't durable enough.

    Nah. I don't use it though, which with the modern trem it's about the same

    Thanks mate! So I got the DT SG at a store in Edmonton, Canada - I really loved how thin it is and how well it plays. But I always found it looked a bit weird with the missing pickguard and the vibrola plate, so I removed that one and added a 5-ply pickguard.

    I also replaced the humbucker covers with aged nickel covers and their mounting rings with Les Paul "M-69" rings or whatever they are called - essentially they are taller and make your humbuckers stick out less. I saw it on a Dickey Betts SG once and liked the look of it.

    Thanks! They are cool SGs. I like the thicker body/sound and sturdier neck joint. This is the guitar I started on and my daughter is now starting learning on it, too.

    I just ordered a set of SD Antiquities for it, looking forward to trying them.

    I love the ebony with maestro. What year did that one come out?

    Ok, let’s spill some beans :naughty:

    I see we share the same inspiration. Really curious about a few of your axes. Please post a list and if it’s not too much to ask, some more photos!
