    SG sounding choked and plinky

    Glad to hear of progress, NIB. I know a few members here in the UK too. Some in London area, some in surrounding cities/towns. I am sure you will get it sorted at home or at your luthier's place since it seems improvements have already happened. Another thing to guard against is heating up...

    SG Classic wiring?

    @Roger Phillips, let us see a pic or 2 of the side view as the strings pass over your bridge pickup and on up past the neck pup. We will be looking to see pickup heights.
