Dude..your playing is killer..wtf are you talking about???:dunno::naughty: Being humble is pretty respectable..and yeah, serious tone..I love how versatile the tone knob on these are..I have a '65 SG Jr, but with a humbucker, still get that raunchy range with just one tone knob..these guitars are predators amongst other guitars..they ain't afraid to bite, maul, and attack..:dude:

Thanks mate. :thumb: TBH my playing is a bit limited, not being able to read music and being self taught can be a bit restrictive. I would advise anybody who can afford them to get as few lessons under their belt.

Not at all, granted I can play a lick here and there but it's all made up. Don't ask me to sit down and learn a piece of music note for note. I just can do it. As far as I'm concerned nobodies playing sucks so long as the player is enjoying playing.

Is the scratchguard original ? Nice sound.

I think the number of famous rock virtuoso plank spankers who can read music must be extremely small, can't think of one. Frank Zappa maybe ?

The scratch plate is a modern replacement, I've been trying to get an era correct one but they are rather expensive. All the plastics other than the P90 cover have been replaced but all else other than the jack plug is factory supplied.

Hi Allan, I stuck it on FB but to be honest unless someone comes up with something really tasty the old LPSGJ will be staying with me.:thumb: That FB page seems to be ok for buying and selling cheap stuff but not so clever for the more high end gear.

Pinged a mail to Mojo so I'll see what comes up.

Thanks.

I've always known I was a pretty horrible guitar player, but if this is what passes as sloppy these days I'm worse off than I ever imagined.

Sweet ass guitar, man.
