    Finally getting around to posting pics. Here it is in Satin Vintage Sunburst. I am waiting for the new knobs to arrive in gold with silver top. The dealer or factory messed up the order but the sent me a credit to get replacements. Also posting the small family it joins.
    The others are a Squire Strat and a Washburn D10s.

    Thanks. I'm thinking about adding a small pickguard and I'm researching as to whether or not the dimension of the soapbar pickups are the same as humbuckers as in this picture Gibson-USA-SG-Special-T-2017-Body.jpg so I can get the same pickguard.

    They are the same dimension as mini hums, so you could get away with using a 2018 special gaurd.

    After cherry, VSB is my favorite SG finish. I also love P-90s. Killer guitar, congrats!

    If that's the same dimension as the 50s tribute, I have a black pickguard....

    I appreciate that. I'm looking for a cream colored one but I guess you noticed I was on a black on sunburst trend. I'm trying to break that. But who knows:naughty:

    I bought it from eBay. You could possibly get the same guy to cut you one in cream, if mine fits. Or use it for a template. Cost you $15 plus postage to find out. :)

    Measure the distance between your pickups?
