    2021 SG Standard neck angle?

    They're not all like that, I've owned a few. And, its not okay either. The pickup cover should not be able to be raised so high the back of it is higher than the pickguard. My question wasn't if you are fine with it, my question was for the measurement of what the neck angle should be.

    2021 SG Standard neck angle?

    Can anyone tell me what the neck angle of 2021 SG Standard should be? Meaning, I'm looking for the measurement of the proper neck angle. I just received a 2021 Gibson SG Standard today which I purchased on and it looks like the neck angle is wrong. The bridge pickup cover is so high...

    2000-2011 Neck profile?

    I had a 2006 SG Classic that had a standard Gibson width neck with a rounded profile.

    Lightweight tuners for 2017 Grover holes?

    Thank you to everyone who replied, and actually read my post first. Ha. While keeping the Grover locking machines, I already replaced the Grover kidney shaped metal buttons with traditional looking plastic SG type ones. It helped but not enough. It looks good though. I may look into those...

    Lightweight tuners for 2017 Grover holes?

    Hello. I have a 2017 Gibson SG Standard which I love, but the neck dive bothers me. Can anyone recommend lightweight tuners to replace the stock Grover locking tuners, which I can install without drilling new holes? Thanks.

    New 2017 SG Standard

    I got my 2017 SG Standard T today. I love it. Its the SG I've been waiting for Gibson to make, mostly because of the neck. I had a 1996 Les Paul Special DC that had my favorite neck ever, and this has the same one. The rolled binding makes a huge difference. It feels like its been played for...

    New 2017 SG Standard

    Tomorrow my 2017 SG Standard T should arrive. I'm very excited. I wanted an SG with a slim taper neck and a long neck joint so I had to buy one of these immediately. I also read that the binding is rolled which was a huge selling point for me. When I get it I'll post in case anyone has...

    Reshaping fretboard binding...

    A rasp is ridiculous and would destroy it. I've rolled binding before. Its a delicate, detailed job. Maybe you should think hard, your opinion about getting used to the neck shape was not something I asked for. You're not me and don't know how I play or the relationship that I develop with my...

    Gibson SG Standard 1998 Dark Cherry

    I have a Honeyburst one too, which is a great guitar, but I wish it was dark cherry.

    Reshaping fretboard binding...

    Hello. Has anyone ever trimmed off some of the binding on their SG? I have a 2010 that feels great but the neck is about 2mm too wide compared to my 2016 T. It doesn't sound like much but it could feel SO much better without that mm of binding on both sides. I was thinking of taking it...

    2016 SG standards

    My 2016 Standard T has a 3 piece body. Incidentally, I might try to trade it in for a different one because one of the glue lines is so visible. Its a little disappointing.

    '61 Reissue 2012 Satin Brown

    I'm glad you bought it. I had one from 2007 that I sold and regret. It was the best quality SG with had, and it had the best feeling neck out of the 5 SGs I've owned.
