    Started life as an '05 Standard that I've had since new. Went through 6 sets of humbuckers before biting the bullet and routing for p90s. Man, I shoulda done that years ago! Wiring I've upgraded to 500ks over the years, with the neck tone control required to act as a bass cut. This layout suits me well, and those Gibson p90s are nothing short of spectacular!

    . I have been a Gibson Les Paul fan for a long time now. But a little while ago I picked up an SG and fell totally in love.

    So a few months ago I picked up a 2017 SG in Pelham Blue and totally love it. But awhile ago I discovered the SG Diablo in Manhattan Midnight. This was the prettiest guitar I think I ever seen.

    I wanted one but just couldn't find one. Until now! The issue is I just spent a good amount of money on a family vacation. Plus 1500 on the SG. So that's when I started thinking. Being that I love playing my SG better then my LP I was thinking about trading my 2012 AAAA trans amber LP for the diablo.

    I am worried if there would be regret after I do it. Also I was thinking would I be foolish for making that trade. Any feedback would be great.

    No one can really help much with that - 'cos no one else can really know quite how you feel about the LP. But I'm replying just because I had a Manhattan Midnight Diablo myself - took a while to find one, and it was absolutely mint condition. In the end I let it go, as the nibs were annoying me, and I'd just bought another SG.

    Well, I sort of missed it, and ended up grabbing the similar diablo-carve 2016 Supreme (I actually prefer the richlite/diamond inlays, but the 2012 Diablo was a stunning colour). I'm learning to live with the nibs now. So, yes, if you're really into SGs you'll probably love that Diablo - it really is a thing of beauty (sounds great too). And it may be a while before you find another one. But it has to be your call about the LP...

    First SG out of my jig. Still finishing up. Had a few malfunctions to go back on with the paint and not predrilling the tail piece. :( But almost done. Already cut out my second body, so hopefully closer to perfection on that one. had a short wire issue on the pickups so they won't be installed the way they are right now. will flip the neck pup once i take it apart and put in a longer lead. 2018-04-17 16.46.36.jpg

    Also had Marty Bell do a wine sparkle on one of my Classics. It looks darker in person. I took this on a very sunny day. Marty does stellar work!

    It had to be done...

    Another Marty Bell custom refinishing job. This one is a 1992 Custom Classic. I grew impatient trying to find a factory silver sparkle SG and took matters into my own hands.

    You are right....only I can make that call. I am actually still waiting for it to arrive at my local guitar shop. My plan is to go there when I get the call it arrived and play it for awhile. Its should be in either this Friday or Saturday.

    My decision depends on if she calls to me when I open the case and if I can feel it when I play.
    So if she ends up coming home with me I will def post some pictures. Thanks for the help...I appreciate it.

    My Vintage G400 started it's life looking like this. Well ... it's life with me at least.

    [​IMG]

    The faded finish was kind of bleh, so I polished it and went with P94s for a while.

    But I came back to humbuckers, once I won a pair of Tyson Tone Precious and Grace PAFs.
