    Show Us Your Basses

    Sounds pretty good to me-middle position is hum-cancelling. I'm not really a bassist. I bought it at a thrift store long ago and was about to sell it to my local that specializes in Mosrite/Greco/etc. funky stuff but my son (the real bassist) wanted me to get it fixed up for him. He left for...

    I need your opinion’s. Help!

    I got the Classic to substitute for my '69 Special-same pickguard/P-90's/Bound Dot Inlay neck. My only regret in trying to match the '69 is the stop bar tail piece. I wish the Classic had the wraparound lightning bar bridge. As far as I can see that's the only non-cosmetic difference and it...

    I’m Thinking About Getting Another SG!

    I like my Epi Classic a bunch and play it in preference to my beat up '69 Special that needs work. That's it in my avatar pic.

    Are the two SG P90 models hum cancelling in the middle position?

    My 2020 Epi Classic is not hum-cancelling in the middle position.

    I'm Trying to Track Down a Specific SG Model

    I've done a few tv things playing bagpipes over the years and they used to instruct me to not wear a white shirt. Not a problem these days.

    Gibson style bridge with extra saddle travel?

    Maybe a Nashville got swapped out for an ABR-1?

    60's Slim Taper

    I haven't handled an early '70s SG but the difference between my '69 Special and 2020 Epi Classic is profound. The main difference I feel is the nut-and therefore neck-width. Getting my thumb to fret the low E string is much easier on the '69. The '69 is deeper and more round. I love playing...
