    Light-bodied (desirable) SGs are more prone to neck dive since the weight balance is different. I have a very light old one and use some lead and tungsten in the control cavity to achieve a good balance with minimal additional weight.

    Solutions looking for problems to fix. You might try just supporting the neck with your fretting hand. Neck dive on some SG's is a real thing. Just deal with it. If neck dive bothers you, buy a Strat. My 78 standard neck dives and I could care less.
