SG Original 2013
Very nice, but you need to find a lead with a right angled jack if you ever want to use that trem.
Already taken care of
Very nice, congrats
Nice SG, congrats.
With 5 ply wide bevel pickguard, Faber / Gibson ABR-1 bridge convers, taller pickup rings, vintage repro knobs your SG wjll be perfect
The 2013 finish is nice, not orange like 2020 and 2021 mdels
@viper007 My SG Standard with upgrades I listed before,
Change the guard, bridge, rings, knobs right out the gate on a new guitar? Whatever happened to just playing it?
This is a JACK...
This is a PLUG...
This is a VIBROLA....
Congrats! “If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.”
Preening parrot says what? Silly bird!
You have just amazing technical background ...
Go play sports, that’s good for what you got.
Tell me about the vintage reproduction knobs. What’s the difference? Both look like silver reflector top hats.
I am pretty picky, but I don’t change the pick up rings. That’s very particular. But hey, if it means something to you and you like it, Give er hell!
Difference is in the font.
They all function the same way.

Vintage repro knobs has a smooth top
Viper, that's my 'dream' guitar! I have the Epiphone repro version, loaded right now with EMG pups but changing to OE Gibson electronics overall. Having played SGs for over 50 years now, I think I can fairly well say that the Epi I have isn't a 'bad' rendition, and perhaps on par with what a newer OE Gibson might sound or play like. But.....it still ain't a Gibson!! I've thought about going out and guying an older SG in vintage cherry and adding the vibrola, but then is that a travesty? My experience is that most any vibrola/trem unit will have an ill-effect on the instrument in perhaps more ways than one; sound, tuning, value, 'playability', etc. But, the 'looks' of your guitar are just stunning to me! Wish I owned it!! Very cool............!!! TD
beautiful :) a guitar for life !! and enjoy your life with it :) Congrates
I' d like to find an SG Original 2, I like the dark cherry finish, very good choice viper007 !
i know it’s silly, but if the original 2 had an original ABR-1 it would be a dream guitar.
Easy enough to make that change!
Happy New Guitar Day
