    Hi fellow SG enthusiasts!

    My names ERIK and I'm a guitar builder specializing in Custom handmade electrics. I stumbled upon this site quite by accident and realized that this might be a great place for me to learn and help fellow lovers of solid body electrics and especially the SG's as I've made 5 of them now and will likely build many more. I must admit that I'm not too familiar with these Forums so it might take me a bit to figure out the correct way to use this stuff, but with help from many of you, i'm sure this can be an enjoyable and knowledgeable experience!

    Now... what the hell is a Trackback, Tag and how would one go about posting some photos???

    Thanks!

    ERIK

    Welcome Erik! Do you have pictures of the SGs you've built then? On this site pictures must be hosted elsewhere on the internet and then you can link to them within your post. There's a sticky in the "Front Desk" forums with full information about how to post pictures. There are many image hosts on the internet, I use Imgur.com.

    Actually I have no idea what a trackback is. A tag.. well a tag flags your post up in searches and makes it easier to make a swift conclusion as to what the post is about. I don't see them used much here, but tags may appear under a thread title, for example a post called "NGD!" may have the tags "SG Classic, Cherry, Modded" if the buyer bought a modded SG classic. I think that's what it means, I hope I'm not barking up the wrong tree.

    Thank you!

    Thanks Heket! I actually had photos uploaded to PhotoBucket and I think I figured out the process to get them on here. I did just get 3 posted on the Luthiers corner Forum. I'll get more going soon.

    ERIK :)

    Thanks JohnnyGoo. I haven't spent much time with Forums simply because I've been too busy working in my shop on guitar builds and trying to get my building business rolling. I almost have 10 guitars now completed and ready to sell, and by chance I stumbled across this site while google searching for SG guitar cases recently. Figured now was a good time since I'll have many finished products to show!
