Hi, I'm missing having an SG and want one badly BUT I have some questions about the 2 or 3 I'm looking at. I'm trying to decide between the new 61 and the new Standard, but have also seen an old 2008 year 61 that may be a contender. My biggest issue with any SG is the balance - I've posted here before about a 2017 standard I bought but eventually returned (weighed under 6lbs) because it was so neck heavy. I even took the tuning pegs of that one altogether to check the weight saving and it still had bad neck dive. So, I'm thinking it may be better to opt for a heavier SG? The places I have seen these ones now have advertised weights - the 2008 61 is 7lbs 9, but the new 2019 61 is 6lbs 15. The other one I'm looking at is a new Standard at 7lbs 2. I play sitting down, without a strap, so all my concerns about balance are in that context. Without driving for about ten hours to the two different places that have the SGs, it's it more likely that the heavier the SG,the less prone to neck dive? Sorry this has been covered so many times here before, but I've got to have an SG again and any advice is welcome. I prefer the look of the small guard but would consider a batwing Standard too, but I'm guessing the grovers and rounded neck profile will maybe mean it's less balanced than a slim taper 61 with Klusons. Anyone know if 2008 would have been a decent year for 61 model Standards? Must admit I don't know when they starting making these 'reissues '. It has the 57 pickups, which I like, but not sure how they compare to the 61 pickups in the latest models. Thanks and sorry for the wall of text!
