So after buying an Artist Series SAN-450 and discovering the incredible quality of the Artist Series, I knew I had to get their SG copy. I'd wanted one for a while, but the only ones for sale were white or black, and I knew I'd seen them in a nice dark cherry before. Eventually, I happened upon this one on Ebay for $250. I couldn't pass it up. Here are the pics from the ad: Now, when I got it, I was surprised to find it buzzed all over the neck. I tried adjusting everything I could, but to no avail. Also, the bridge was definitely not stock, with peeling paint and cheap plastic saddles, one of which was broken. So the first thing I did was buy a new nut, thinking this would fix the buzzing. It didn't, but hey, nothing wrong with a new nut, and now it matches the binding. Then, I bought a new bridge and some witch hats (to compliment the late '60s style dark cherry finish). Finally, I gave in and had it looked at by a local luthier and when I picked it up, he was gushing over it. He said the first thing he noticed was the quality and linearity of the truss rod, and then the real Gotoh tuners. He even said it was one of the best playing SGs he'd had in there all year, including Gibbys. So now that I've got it back, I'm loving it. Just recently, I installed a new switch and Switchcraft output jack. I've gotten the action very low, making it perfect for fast riffing and solos. I've even been neglecting the Gibby a bit. But that's good because it will be my main gigging axe since I don't want to risk getting the Gibby stolen or damaged. Anyway here are the after pics: If I get the chance, I'll upload a vid because it sounds as good as it looks.
