    Custom Shop Case Problems?

    Ha! You ought to see the case I got with a S/H American F-word guitar that rhymes with belly-blaster. I knew it was damaged but the regulation case hadn't enjoyed being dropped - cheap, brittle plastic. Protected the guitar though and I got it at a great price. - Usual thing, went in to buy a...

    NGD - Gibson SG Standard '61 Demo Shop Mod

    Great pups on this one - I prefer 'em covered but they have a killer tone. Harder edged than 57 classics but just roll a bit of treble off and you're away.

    2006 Standard with lightning bolt inlays

    One of my local cash converters has a cherry 2006 SG Standard (017160687). Weirdly it has lightning bolt inlays in the rosewood fretboard (they aren't stickers). Plain truss rod cover, no other 'Angus' appointments. Any of you learned guys have any thoughts on this?

    Which player(s) attracted you to the SG?

    Many years ago I had an SG copy (not Epiphone) which had an equally fake Bigsby on it. The tone was great and it played OK, albeit with heavy gauge strings to counteract the Bigsby. Anyhoo, I lost the tip of a finger and when I got back to trying to play it was painful, so I traded that guitar...

    New SG Jr: Ridiculous errors!! Should I write to Gibson?

    Set up well or not, there's issues that even the best set up won't fix. A SH model that I looked at was well set up and played beautifully, it also had a gorgeous looking rosewood fretboard with a red flame down one side for about half the length of the neck from the headstock down...

    New SG Standard's Backorder Time

    I think a lot of it is due to Covid lockdowns, especially people now on WFH - I saved enough on commute money that I wasn't spending to buy an SG.

    In an SG Standard: 490's or '61's ?

    I love 57's but if you want something with more 'bite' 61 zebras.

    Hello Guys! I want to buy Les Paul DC Spacial with p90,

    Weirdly, I recall Leslie West saying that the DC Juniors tended not to be as good as the SC LPJ. From memory all his SCLPJs had been great, but finding a DC that 'did it' for him was problematic.
