Okay, if you want I see that... Where is the wide bevel pickgard, the ABR-1 bridge, etc..?

Picture is without the wide bevel pickguard (have to look for other pix), these were the parts I have ordered and installed:

I will install a Faber ABR-Historic on my Ebony '61 Reissue, the stock ABR-1 is fine when strings are on the guitar but without retainer wire the saddles are free, very easy to loose.

If you want to install a Faber ABR-N bridge consider Faber® iNsert™ studs, with those studs you eliminate the adapters. Better sustain, more vibrations...

Faber® iNsert™ with Gibson ABR-1 bridge, the perfect conversion.
For your SG Standard '61 you only need the Faber® iNsert™ studs, 6-32inch upper threaded version : https://www.faberguitar.com/iNsert-...uds-7mm-6-32inch-BRASS-nickel-plated-glossy_1

A wide bevel pickguard and truss rod cover is a super easy (and reversible) mod that makes for a nice aesthetic upgrade, IMO. That's the number 1 mod I'd recommend for a '61 Standard.
