    SG Colors, Vintage Cherry VS Heritage Cherry

    I like the darkness of antique cherry that they used to offer on the standards. Sometimes they called it vintage cherry as well. Almost like oxblood but easier to see some grain

    Do Grovers look "right" on an SG?

    Good eyes. Those are Schaller buttons most likely on Schaller tuners.

    Imagine an SG...

    The lower model sdc33 had neck angle issues. I tried two that the bridges were totally bottomed out and the action was still very high.

    A Tale of Madness, Hubris and Crib-death

    The Costa Rican vendor Gibson has used ( the ones I've had from 2010 - 2012 anyways) used a 7 ply shell versus TKL's 5 ply. More in line to TKL's Cedar Creek Custom Shoppe here in VA where I used to work. They are heavier but noticeably more durable than TKL's Canadian variants. If one wants a...

    Do Grovers look "right" on an SG?

    I like the Schaller shape like Gibson used in the 70's.. I just put these Gotoh's with Ivoroid Schaller style buttons on a SG Standard. But Grovers look ok too. Just wanted to share another option.

    Fret polish advice pls

    For tarnish removal AND fretboard degunking it just can't be beat. I used to go through all the taping and steel wool nonsense but finally stumbled onto Gorgomyte. Never going back. I'm willing to bet any naysayers have either never used it or didn't use some elbow grease/follow directions.

    Batwing vs non-batwing - school me...

    I'm far enough along in the game not to be foolish enough to believe an ABR-1 is an "upgrade". We don't care about which styles you find more "sexy". You've actually proven yourself to be the newbie around here time and time again.

    Nice SG Standard, unknown model

    Employee build and a precursor to the 2007-2008 SG Select. Haven't you all ever seen the SG Select? He found the pictures on one of the SG groups on FB. It is not officially called the SG Tiger by any means.
