    If you have a 3 pickup SG, whether it be modded, a custom, one of the 2015 SGS3s, I want to see them! I'm curious as to what you guys got.

    I've got one of these but the middle pickup is just in my way.
    Been trying to deal with it but now I'm converting to a 2 pickup P90 Special.

    I had one of these for a very brief time - literally a few days. As soon as it arrived I realised the dealer had tried to rip me off & so he had to take it back for a full refund.

    It was called an SG3, a guitar of the week model, I think 400 were made, but they also did versions in natural & sunburst finishes on other weeks, (the natural one was a 'Standard' with block inlays). In a way it was a shame, as it was actually an interesting SG - those pups were quite hot, and the 6-way selector gave plenty of options. It also made a great contrast with the SG in the photo, with just about every detail different apart from the body shape! (Now I think about it - the neck was a bit thick for my taste... Probably was a 'rounded 50s' profile, rather than the 'rounded' on my '17).

    One of the best sounding SGs I have played to date.

    Edit: Should add that it is a 2013 SG Deluxe

    I really love the dark rosewood fingerboard on this one, it works really well with the split diamond inlays. The Deluxe I went to look at had quite a light board and didn't look so cool... I think this is the darkest I've seen, it could easily be ebony in that shot.

    I think this pic was in my head when I ordered myself another SG this week - a Supreme with 24 frets & split diamonds... :) I was hoping it would be here by now, but as far as I can tell it's still in Germany, so no NGD thread for a while. :(

    All three use one set of volume & tone knobs for neck & bridge pickups with the 3 way toggle.
    The other set of volume & tone knobs are for the middle pickup.
