    I modded my HH strat to have 2V1T. welcome to the 2V1T club!

    Did you know that 2V1T naturally is '50s wired?

    This SGII looks unique to me, not sure how many were finished this way. I rather like the look. Somehow the odd control plate doesn't look so out of place:

    Very nice, and I like it, too. The back of the body, neck, and headstock is painted like that, too... :cool:

    I'd guess this is a customized early 70's (1972 ??) Gibson SG II.

    That front control plate is the dead giveaway. Looks like the pickguard got ditched & the plastic covered mini-humbuckers were tossed & she was routed out for full size tone busters.

    Many of these guitar met similar fates as they were cheap & unpopular for years & honestly just a great format to build 'your guitar' off of!
    I mean, just look what this person was able to do with it.

    Not bad!

    The site says it's a '75, and from what I can tell the SGII was in production till '76, with a small number made in '75 with twin humbuckers, so I guess it may have started life with 'em.

    This was done when they stopped making LPs and got this SG idea out (I think ...). I guess they had a pile of these ugly pickguards they woudn't throw away.

    No, that was a decade earlier, when the SG was introduced. The LP had returned to their range by the time these came out, but I guess it could've been a cost cutting measure - using the same style on both models. Many of the changes at this time are hard to understand as anything but cost cutting, certainly they did nothing for aesthetics. :)
