    Which SG and why?

    This gentleman seems to do well with P-90 pick-‘em-ups!

    Not for purists... TeleSGcaster, Bigsby and Goldtop

    Well, it looks totally cool!

    Speaker for a 1x12 cab (Recommendations)

    Plus one to Eminence speakers. I have a 12' Eminence Red Coat CV-75 in a 1X12 cabinet paired up with a Rivera Clubster 25 watt head. I think it sounds very good. I came to this decision at a recommendation from one of the techs at Sweetwater. I think it was as a great bit of advice.

    Which SG and why?

    If blues is your thing, I think I'd gravitate toward the P-90s. Here is my thought process: Many (certainly not all!) blues numbers have been performed with a Strat, which has single coils. Of course, I KNOW that P-90s do not sound like Strat type single coils, but they are in roughly that...

    Y'know, Marin, I know I've already commented, but the more I look at that guitar, the cooler it looks.

    "Furnture burst" I don't care who you are, that's funny, right there! The guitar looks great, Marin.

    Opinions on the SG Elegants?

    Y'know, I've seen that picture many times, but I just now noticed that Les Paul relocated the front strap button to the top horn!

    Opinions on the SG Elegants?

    I like these, too. The SG Modern. With this model, Gibson put the output jack on the side, which I REALLY like.

    SG Classic wiring?

    Not necessarily. And, not all Les Pauls are wired that way. My bone stock Les Paul Custom wasn't.

    Is getting another pickup out of the question? Here's one with the coil tap lead: https://www.wdmusic.com/kent-armstrong-hot-rod-series-dual-tone-tapped-p-90-pickup-details.html

    SG sounding choked and plinky

    I see. Yeah, if there was a wire that was simultaneously touching the terminal of a pot and ground, that would be an issue.

    SG sounding choked and plinky

    Gotta say, Chili. This isn't ringing a bell. That was years ago. Whatever I said, it would probably have been because there was something that looked like it could be causing a short with something else. I'm not disagreeing with you that this occurred, but I'm literally not even remembering...

    Vibrola Question

    ^^^^ This, this, and this! I, too, have used a variety of vibratos - Fender, Maestro vibrola, Bigsby, Floyd Rose, even the old Washburn Wonderbar from the '80s. All bets are off until the strings are done stretching and settled in. You can't adequately evaluate the tuning stability of any...

    Pickup Swap - looking for versatility....

    So, you like that Phat Cat? I've contemplated putting that in another one of my guitars.

    Pickup Swap - looking for versatility....

    Y'know...a lot of folks scoff at that pickup combination. But, that's what I have in my Les Paul and I actually like it quite a bit. I can do quite a bit with that set.

    Pickup Swap - looking for versatility....

    ^^^^This.

    Opinions on the SG Elegants?

    Yeah, I like the HP model, too. I like the nibless frets and the side-mounted output jack. I do confess, though, that I do like the small SG pickguard. I'd be tempted to put one of those on the guitar if I had an HP! Nice, guitar. Is it yours?

    Has anyone tried the SG Special with P90s?

    I'm pretty sure these are regular Gibson P-90s, but here is ETSG's own Kevy Nova rocking his SG with P-90s. Most P-90s should be able to get into this territory, given the right amp and setup. Sure, I know it's not exactly keeping with the topic, but it's worth the listen!

    Fav 'SG' tones ?

    Though he is much better known for playing a Fender Stratocaster, I am fond of the sound Eric Johnson is getting from his SG while playing Cliffs of Dover in this video:
