Hi guys, my first post here :-) As a guitar player I guess I'm probably best described as a blues/funk/soul kind of guy... I'm experiencing some serious G.A.S. at the moment - dribbling over some SG standards. I wonder what year did they decide to go from PAF's to 490R and 498T ? I once had a 2006 SG Standard with the latter, that I felt was a bit "flat" in sound compared to my other Gibson's (ES-335, 2001 and Les Paul, G0) with PAF's / buckers. So I'm now looking for some vintage models with PAF's as I imagine they will be more to my taste... Any thoughts about what you prefer?
