    Hi All

    New sg day upload_2020-7-29_19-14-51.gif

    Haven't Bought since 2014, so when they bought back the sideway i coulden't resist it upload_2020-7-29_19-14-51.gif
    Great Guitar. Beautiful Finnish, Great neck. Lovely dark Rosewood.
    Enjoy the pickup's. Lightweight, only 6.10 Ibs (Pick of Guitar on wight From Store)

    Only Negative is the Cheap Plastic Parts, Those have i Replaced With new Pickguard,Trussrod with Les Paul, Volume and Tone controls(not on the pick) and a Amber Switch tip

    Yea And i knew all about the sideway Vibrole trouble. But leave it and it's good. Can get away with gentle use
    Here's a pick the Billy Gibbon's way upload_2020-7-29_19-14-51.gif

    Very nice! I like the uncovered look on the Vibrola. Looks like a Rube Goldberg machine.

    You gotta love it, beautiful guitar. I have such a soft spot for the sideways vibrola.

    With M-69 pickup rings and vintage repro knobs it will be perfect, great SG !

    Beauty!! You’ve got me considering one!

    wondering why you went with the 50’s amber switch tip instead of the traditional 60’s white tip all original SGs came with?

    On The Previous Custom shop sg's the switch tip was Amber, just thought it look nice. This one is maybe to much on the bright side. Looks nicer a little darker. Where did i put that Original ....

    You have a beauty! I looked at the 2014 run when they came out but didn't have the cabbage. I had to settle for the 2019 Sg '61 with a sideways. Loved your video :)

    Amber switch tip is orange, awful and Historic switch tip is perfect. Here with the heavy knurled Switchcraft nut,
