    Thanks.
    The SG Classic is indeed my favorite. The Kinman zero-hum P-90 in the bridge makes it extra special.

    Is that polished aluminum Daniel?

    Whatever it is it looks great! That as live performer would sure grab the eye. Especially under some lights.

    I am digging it

    Here are my two:
    April & Luna@100.jpg
    2012 SG special '70s Tribute Silverburst: April
    2007 ST faded special: Luna

    Here's April with a few more mods:
    Top view@100.jpg
    and a little closer:
    Body@100.jpg
    My favorite guitar of any I've ever played is this faded brown SG special.
    I fell arse over teakettle for her in 2008 and she's still the Queen of my music room and it's ten years later. Love this faded special:
    Luna 2017*@100.jpg
    Here's Luna, a little closer and some different light...
    a Luna close@100.jpg
    The 2012 is mostly stock, with a few superficial mods.
    The 2007 has been lovingly modded with all the best of everything
    I could buy or make. Each has a lovely unique voice all her own,
    and I am very fond of my SGs. These do everything I ask of them.
    And they bring out the best in my music.

    Lucky me, I have other fine guitars I play, but these two have carved
    out a niche for themselves in my soul. IMHO, SGs are like that.

    I think from memory it's highly polishing steel. Didn't feel very flimsy when I put it on!
    Loves finger prints, but then again the whole guitar is ebony sooo....

    What do you guys usually use for a camera? I just use my iPhone 6S camera. Pretty average as you can see at night time photos.

    I am using an iPhone 8, seems to pull off some good photos.

    I have a nice cannon SLR that I should really pull out for some pro shots one day

    If you have access why not. Always nice to have some good photos of the guitar.

    Holy smokes Arctic!

    That’s a serious collection. Your border line needing to seek some professional help :)

    I am always curious when I see so many SG’s from one year. What was it about the 2017’s that spoke to you?

    Very classy photo. Something about the cream pickups pops out against everything there. And the cherry looks very deep.

    these are great you guys...

    Oh and I get some decent photos using my darn phone
    which is an iPhone SE. I'm always amazed at the quality
    of the pictures I get with that, because I use a Nikon
    D-300 professionally, as well as a Nikon D-5300 and I
    have some fine lenses.

    The best photos I've got were taken with the Nikons,
    but all my more casual pictures were taken with my phone.

    Hey Biddlin! You taught me how to set up a guitar a year or so ago through your setup method I saw on various forums. This is my first forum post and I want to say thank you, I owe you a few beers.

    This is my contribution to the thread! A 2017 SG standard with some SWEET 57 classics stock
