    What do you think of this upgrade on a Gibson LP Standard?

    Do you think this was worth the £1500 in upgrades or should I have left it as it was? It plays absolutely brilliantly!

    Wanted: Frank Zappa Roxy SG

    Hi, I have wanted this guitar, the Zappa Roxy SG ever since it came out in 2013. The problem is, that only 400 were made and they fly off the shelves of the internet every time they get stocked. If anyone has one for sale, or knows someone who is selling one, or even has one at all and can maybe...

    'Modern' SG custom build - ideas and questions for a potential build

    Hi there, I am currently playing around with the idea to have a local luthier build me a custom SG, however I thought getting some info and advice from some builders around the forum would be a good idea as well. As a fan of the SG, and owner of a few over my time playing guitar, I have always...

    Gibson S-G Custom 1978 — Fretting About Frets

    Hi all, new member here. This is my '78 SG custom, what for many years considered my dream guitar (and still do I suppose). It's clearly been well loved in the past, but aside from the cosmetic wear has no breaks and still has the original tarbacks (which I love). My only gripes are these...

    NGD: SG Custom, P90, Maestro, VOS lamp black

    First thing this morning I checked into another guitar forum and saw a post by someone who'd just received a new guitar with a nasty neck break. Felt really sorry for him, but with an hour to go before the courier was due to arrive, it really wasn't something I wanted to see... Thankfully, it...

    A rare pick guard or home made job?

    The 'flat top' pick guard in my avatar pic, have any of you seen anything like this? There is an old picture of Mary Ford and Les Paul with SG's that have this kind of pick guard as well as a rare "Randy Rhodes" SG with the same pick guard. Is this something Gibson added when doing aftermarket...

    Three Mini Humbuckers?

    So, I picked up an 2014 SG Standard neck and body and someone along the way did some weird routing to install some p90's or something. It was pretty cheap and since the resale value is shot, I'm considering the possibility of adding a Bigsby B3 and 3 mini humbuckers because I love the tone and...
