    The same John Birch who made guitars and basses for Dave Hill and Jim Lea of Slade fame?

    The name is the same. I have mixed feelings on this whole deal. You guys over there would know better than we would over here. Someone there needs to post photos of the Birch guitar shop and expose it for what it is. Tell John Carling to give you a tour. Do the world a favor

    Holy crap those are some hot pickups!

    There's no way that was originally right handed, the body is clearly left hand offset and beveled.

    I asked a long time ago if it was available as a spare part like the pickups - the reply was "JB OE only".

    I was going to say is the guitar you got the one in this link?

    http://www.everythingsg.com/threads/john-birch-sg.29885/

    But that one has the bridge pickup quite far away from the bridge. Yours looks like it's closer. I see there's another one with a lightning bolt bridge on that page.
