    Anybody use an original 1960s vintage Gibson wraparound bridge with a plain G? (1960s Lightning bolt)

    I have the same jr as Angus. Mine has EB Slinky's 0.010. G string on the Original bridge was quite good on the chords, but was way off higher on the neck. A compensated mojoaxe replacement is spot on. Sound-wise it's superb. Highly recommended.

    Auction "Gibsons" - really?

    The autographs are real if they came with a photo of the actual signing. Otherwise they could be fake too.

    Do these wooden vibrola blocks serve any function ?

    I think they did. The two rods of the long vibrola match the ebony block. The long vibrola has two mounting screws just like the Ebony block version.

    Thanks for your comment Donepearce. Intonation is spot-on. And what kind of offset studs do you mean? Its an original ABR-1 bridge.

    Is An SG A Gorgeous Guitar?

    Well......., compare this with a White Falcon. Where can you go with two pickups? Exactly! Nowhere. When you need that extra push over the cliff.... This one has three (PAF) Pickups :-)
