    NGD 2017 SG Custom SE

    I haven't been this excited for a guitar in a long time. And oh man is it nice. Equipped pups are great although I may put a P94 in the neck. Without further adieu pics!

    NGD - Blackie 61 RI

    A friend bought this guy originally and just never bonded with it. I can't understand why because it plays awesome. Pups are a little brittle sounding for my taste and will be swapped. But for $500 I can't complain! PICS!!!

    NGD Amazon Exclusive 2017 SG VSB

    I ordered this guitar about a month and two weeks ago. Not bad turn time for a build it once you order it situation. VERY happy with her. Fit and finish it fantastic. Neck is straight and smooth and right out of the case it played well. I did change a few things which I had sitting waiting for...

    NGD - 2017 SG Special Zebra

    Got my Amazon exclusive SG Special Zebra in the mail today. Very impressed with this guitar so far. Very very lightweight. Might be the lightest SG I've ever held. The neck is amazing and is that flat wide 61 style that I love. Pics!!

    Finally! A Norlin Era I might want..but is the price retarded??

    As some know I've been hunting for a tobacco sunburst NORLIN era SG in relatively good shape. Recently this one popped up on eBay but she looks ridden hard and put away wet, has had major body repair, no case AND a refret. I'm not ashamed to pay for something if the value is there but my...

    Tenon Covers

    I've been working with Rick to produce close to accurate tenon covers in multiple colors. I know from experience that finding one of these can be very tough so I just wanted to share his work. Pretty inexpensive and great quality. A sample here: Gibson SG Electric Guitar Tenon Cover Neck...

    NGD 61 RI -Potential refinish

    So I scored this cherry girl on ebay with a headstock repair for $666.66:dude: shipped. A damn good deal on a 2006 RI. Plays great but alas I'm not a giant cherry fan. If it didn't have the headstock break and subsequent repair (which is solid and didn't effect playability at all) I'd...

    1965 or 67 SG Special - Value??

    I feel my Gibson knowledge is pretty vast especially about items that have been produced in my lifetime. However it gets a bit hard for me to value items from earlier times. I've had this, what I believe to be 65-67 special that I'm trying to get a valuation on. I bought it as a body/neck...

    NGD - I need to stop...But I cant!!

    A friend of mine at the Saginaw, MI Guitar Center told me he could add his employee discount to the already discounted 2013's they were moving. So as a bday present to myself I picked up this antique white beauty. I'm very happy with it so far. I feel like I'm in a guitar mania especially...

    What would you DO?

    So I recently as some of you know purchased a 1990 SG Custom with the intent to refinish it. The seller listed it as a used 1990 custom in which he explains that he changed out the tuners but that the stock ones are shipping with it. All seems normal. He describes the sound of the pickups but...

    What year/type of pickup is this?

    I recently pulled this weird possible gem out of the 1990 SG custom I bought to refinish. It was I believe the only Gibson pickup in it and doesn't match the spec at all for what would have been in that guitar. What am I looking at here? Sounded really good when I tested it out.

    Wintermute - An SG Custom Refinish

    And SO it begins... I received the 1990 SG Custom beat up and screaming for attention. She had yellowed quite a bit and unevenly in some spots making it look spotted and unattractive to my eyes. Some pics of her being taken apart pre-stripping: Headstock is going to be revamped with new...

    EverthingSG vs. MylesPaul

    I know many of us belong to both forums and contribute to both. I'm also aware that they are owned and maintained by the same company. However I just want to say that everyone over here at ETSG are such a good group of positive upbeat contributors that really shine when you swing back over to...

    Tuners Anyone?

    Got a set of gold imperial style tuners that I'm taking off a '90 SG Custom. I'm looking for a set of the chrome Gibson Deluxe Scahllers that are found on most models today. If anyone's interested in trading/buying/selling some tuners let me know. It will help my whiteout project go quicker...

    Refinish Idea - Need feedback!

    Hey all I'm thinking of doing a creamsickle SG standard. It's super loud and orange like a muscle car in my mind, but summers around the corner and I wanted something to match. I have many dignified SG's, bursts, a few black ones, white ones but nothing quite as loud as this. Anyway just want...
