    Jings! That's a wee beauty of a guitar. I wouldn't mind hearing some Tony Iommi type riffs from it. Great work.

    I just love a walnut brown gibson SG. It's such a shame that gibson hasn't made a proper one in years (almost since the 70's), apart from a few limited editions that always seem to have some quirk that ruins everything. A plain special with unbound neck and ABR-1 would do it for me. This one is just lovely.

    Détails of the Nashville/ABR bridge conversion with black brushings, the bridge is a genuine Gibson ABR-1.
    The assembly is very discreet, very clean.

    Your SG looks absolutely amazing now with that pick guard and that ABR-1 tuneamatic bridge. That guitar will now beat out just about anything out there including Custom shop guitars.

    That is stunning great job always loved that finish as well. Never sad to see a g-force tuner removed I bet it plays as good as it looks.

    That's definitely a real looker! Love the grain and that rich brown.

    I had a ‘15 SG JR but sold it because of the neck profile. It was not what I'd call slim taper. Wide thin better describes it.

    The neck profile is very close to slim taper, the width is a little bit different at the nut side. It' s called Slim Taper

    It really is gorgeous. I personally don't consider an ABR an upgrade, but all the other mods are really nice to me.

    I agree, as I don’t understand why change from a Nashville Tunematic with wider range of intonation adjustments than the ABR-1 (unless you are just trying to make it more vintage looking). To each their own I guess

    I use to have Gibson guitars with ABR-1 bridge, the Nashville looks big imho, it is a matter of habit, ABR-1 bridge is more harmonious.

    Same punishment for my inexpensive Les Paul Tribute,
