Col. you have the power to summarize everything I love about life in one sentence.
Thanks for the welcome.
Yes, it counts... maybe the old SG counts double.
We will welcome any Norwegian SG fans, especially if they own a brown one.
Personally, I love the photos of these old ones, because it shows how the faded brown
really gets close to the look of the real thing.. I imagine the faded cherry ones look like some old SGs that haven't yellowed as much.
I have lovingly modded my '07 faded SG special with:
Grover Vintage Keystone tuners
Buzz Feiten "shelf nut"
Custom TRC from Scott Swirski of Canada
Gibson '57 Classic and Classic + pickups
DiMarzio covers (black)
Hand made (by me) walnut pick guard and walnut control cavity cover.
Tone Pros bridge and tail
High quality wiring harness by Martin Six String
O-11 knobs from AllParts
She's just the way I want her now, and doesn't need anything more.
Love the PG Col, really sets it off.

Wow! I would've never guessed the black back and the stinger, lovely combo! Are you using the stock 490T?
No, I put in a Rio Grande BBQ . It sounds much better now.. IMO of course
I just replaced the metal knobs on the Grovers with black acrylic ones.It helped with the neckdive...looks better too.

Hey guys, lots of great SGs here. I grew up playing a brown SG and have always had a soft spot for them.
Here's the mid-70s SG I learned to play on, belongs to my dad. It's had a headstock repair, one tuner replaced, and a refret, over the years.
And here's my 2016 SG Faded I bought last summer. I've had the PCB replaced and wired '50s style. Also put foam under the bridge pickup to make it sit more evenly under the strings (made a huge difference!).
those are great! the new and the old. and I really like the black tuner buttons.
Here's the PW Monterey strap I got for mine
Man, I love the bevels on that one! Nice!
Pretty sure you messaged me on Instagram! Love it!
THAT IS YUMMY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Lemme in this damn club!
... Welcome back!
Very nice. What model is that?
2008 Faded brown, gutted the pcb and installed SD SH4, regular pots and caps. Been parked for a couple years due to excessive fret wear.
