    Gibson SG Special '60s Tribute - p90 Pickups

    I’ve never liked single coils at the bridge position. Drop a Kinman Hx Nasty 90 Heavy in at the bridge for hi gain use and keep the stock P-90 at the neck for cleans. Guitars being built with the same pup at neck and bridge needs to stop. It’s such an antiquated design that is not practical...

    Gibson SG headstock Logo and Crown alignment

    The serial number on checklist is not legit because the format is incorrect for a 2019 model. 2019 serial does not use 1st and 5th digits for the year. 1st and 2nd digits indicate the year starting back in 2014.

    That’s the headstock overlay. Headstocks with logo as inlay will have the black overlay on the face of the headstock.

    69 SG Special—Help, Is It Worth It?

    I’ve seen several and had a couple of those transitional 1970 SG with the block style logo missing the dot over the “i” that had no volute or Made in USA stamp and had 1970 pot codes. Some were incorrectly listed or sold as 1969 models, but a completed build cannot be older than the date of a...

    69 SG Special—Help, Is It Worth It?

    Not worth it. My first Gibson was a 1969 SG Special that I purchased for $400 in 1986. It’s ridiculous what people are asking for these old guitars. To me they are just old guitars. A more recent used one does what I need it to do. Keep in mind those older Gibsons from 1965-1981 will have a...

    SG Special advice

    I’ve had several from that era. 2000-2004 had gloss finish. 2000-2004 had ebony boards. 2002 was first year for Faded finish. 2002-2003 had crescent moon inlays. 2004 was switch back to rosewood. The neck profiles are all over the place. Some are chunkier than others. I prefer the feel of the...

    NGD: 1999 SG Special

    The guitar was bone stock when I got it. It had the 490T/490R combo with 300K pots and sounded like mud. The pup screws and slugs were all rusted out and the volume pot to the bridge pup was faulty. Would not cut volume off and had no taper. After replacing the pups and controls, it now sings...

    Maiden Post at the forum: Which one do I go for?

    It's all about the neck. After playing Custom Shop LP's with fat 50's necks, all SG necks feel thin to me by comparison. Once in a while you can find an SG with batwing that has a decent size neck that does not feel like playing a popsicle stick. I've never experienced the "neck dive"...

    Scored an SG what model is it?

    Fresh nitro has an unpleasant chemical smell. The vanilla scent is from the case that gets absorbed into the nitro finish of the guitar.

    NGD: 1999 SG Special

    Thanks. It’s fine the way it is and just needs to be played. I bought it because I wanted one to play outdoors or in areas that I don’t need to worry about it getting messed up. I like it a lot because it’s hard to find a modern SG with thick rounded neck. The dark walnut gloss finish is not...
