I've got a 2002 Gibson SG 'gothic' which which is the 1st electric I've ever bought: I love everything about her, except the balance. The neck dives like an olympic swimmer anytime I take my hands off of it. I think this is because the guitar has heavier tuning gear (grover tuners VS the traditional) and it has an ebony fretboard (from what I read online different species of ebony are on average 20% denser then rosewood species). I've tried wide straps and those with suede surfaces, there's so much weight on the left shoulder it just pulls my whole shirt down with it. And I don't want to get some strap that looks like an orthopedic device and ruin the whole vibe of the guitar. What can I do? Re-Balancing a guitar seems like a difficult thing to do. I've seen some SGs with metal plates extending down from the bridge, I wonder if something like that would do it. If I can't make it a comfortable guitar to play, I gotta trade or sell her :/ It's one of the coolest guitars I've ever seen: manages to black itself out without looking like a BC rich / something hanging in hot topic.
