I'm all ears. Longtime Gibson SG enthusiast here. Just looking to see what all else is available.
Okkkkk….. what's a JayDee?
Anyone who has a JayDee Iommi is a potential victim of my evil eye. A JayDee Iommi is my final dream. I never played one. I don't care is neck is comfortable to play or not for my short fingers. I want one! That is all I can say.
JayDee is a high-end maker of SG-thened electric guitars as used by Iommi, Young and others. They introduced the lightning-bolt fretboard inlays on one of Angus' JayDees, and Gibson carried that feature onto their Angus Young SG's.
mall kidding aside, they are supposed to be second to none, including Gibson. Never had the joy of stumbling across one to lay, or the patience to wait 6-8 months to order one.
John is recognized as a top luthier, and is praised by renowned musicians. I have no doubt none us would be disappointed in one of his fine instruments
This Schaller bridge just showed up. What to do?
Sell it to me to convert the 1986 Carvin DC200 Koa to Chrome..jk!
Sorry, koaguilds! Didn’t see your post until it was too late!
Damn I've got an '86 Carvin DC 160 with the exact same gold hardware. I'm also on the lookout for a chrome bridge to do a conversion
The waiting list is too long. I was told 16 months just for a Standard.
Wahey! Did you get it yet? Drooooooooool!
No, sir. Still have a ways to go, probably about a year or so. I will certainly post pics when it does arrive!
Ooooooofffffft! I very nearly did the same thing, got myself a schaller 456 off eBay a couple of years ago and everything. Had a change of heart recently... picked myself up a Gibson SG Junior with P90 super cheap and installed the schaller on there. Loving it, but your Jaydee is going to be in another realm!!!
Good luck not exploding with impatience!
I hope you ordered the relic?
Sorry Grizzly, no relic here. I did order something besides the standard black though (not that there’s anything wrong with black). However, I suppose I have plenty of time to change my mind. Pretty sure there’s no upcharge for the relic.
Only joking of course, anything you get from Jaydee is going to be amazing, their Facebook group pics are unreal! I think the relic is £2195. A little bit more than the standard. The white relic is just mmmmmmmmmmmmm!
