    Another new SG....

    Fellas, fellas... No need to get into an argument over it. I think whether or not you like the pickups is a different argument than their quality, no? My post was to engage in conversation not to spark an argument. I think we can ALL agree on the case issue though, am I right? Cheers!

    Another new SG....

    Completely agree, I have no hate for the 490s. They do what I ask of them. Are there better out there, of course there are but I don't necessarily see the 490s as inferior. Horses for courses there. However, I can't emphasize enough the lack of Hardshell Case on the Standard...bad look Gibson.

    Another new SG....

    Well put, cheaper not necessarily being the right word for the 490T pickups. I actually like them well enough, more than the 57s but a 57+ in the bridge rips. I'm starting to sway a bit more towards a Tribute given I'd probably end up swapping the pickups potentially the pcb too, but not urgent...

    It's not that $500 really makes or breaks the bank, but as you mentioned having the same pickups and no hardcase is tough pill to swallow for a Standard. Especially like you said, 3 years ago they were substantially cheaper, better pickups, AND hard Case. God damn if they aren't gorgeous though...

    As far as the different tone, I usually find that a little eq tweaking on my Rockerverb can minimalize the difference if I'm going for the same sound. My vintage (avatar) has mini-hums. My Custom has a Wolfetone Marshallhead in the bridge (alnico 5). So really looking for that alnico 2 SG sound...

    Another new SG....

    This is...this is an AWESOME answer! Really my wondering was the difference in neck between maple and mahog. 500 bucks is nothing to sneeze at in terms of price difference. I like the look of the walnut tribute from the front too, but from the back the color difference is VERY obvious and may...

    Another new SG....

    Hey all!! I'm about to pull the trigger on another new SG. Before I do, I am between a Tribute or a Standard. Curious to hear from anyone that owns/has played both, what is the difference in the neck? Other than maple vs mahogany of course. I'm speaking of feel in hand (profile, etc.). I...

    My new 2021 Gibson SG Tribute

    Bumping an old(ish thread)...longtime SG lover and player, new member (Hello Everyone!). How is the neckdive on these? Eyeing one but the neck dive on my 2018 standard was SO bad I didn't keep it. Cheers! J.P.
