    New SG at home, it is very resonant and mahogany is nice. This SG sounds very hot.

    The pickguard is handmade by Creamtone, they are cool and parts are high quality.

    I order a white fullface one for my cream SG Std, this pickguard is nice, thick and bevels are 60° like Custom shop ones

    The wood is very cool, the finish is a kind of walnut. The design of the body and neck joint are like a '61 RI, that' s why it needs light tuners . The GForce works fine but I think it is too much heavy.

    That walnut finish is PRETTY! Almost shocking to know that is a USA standard.... makes me wonder how many more of those are out there...

    Very nice, walnut is my second favorite color.

    I can never bring myself to buy a full guard, why cover up the wood?
