    I have been practicing with a couple co workers we are doing a song or two at work. Anyhow my one of them is buying my 2016 red wine lp studio hp. I loved everything on that guitar except well the gold knobs bugged me and some of the yellowish pickup rings etc.

    My all black 2017 SG standard is gone ( the cobalt fade 2018 sg hp was the replacement ). So I needed an all black guitar again ( right ? / seems like it ). I ditched the robo tuners with locking grovers and put in a circuit board from an LP standard that has 4 push pulls including phase switching. It really is all black but tends to reflect other colors. It has a black pickguard that you can pull off.

    Initial setup needed some minor tweaks ( so the truss rod adjustment ) and I will give it a couple of days to see how it settles in. Like the 2016 lp studio hp it has 490 / 498 pickups. For me not much difference between those and my slightly preferred 57/57+ combo.

    Congrats, man! Thats a foxy LP! Black with chrome is just a bulletproof match IMO. Good to see you're Back In Black!

    That might be too classy for you, maybe trade it in for a Hondo.
