    After 2 weeks

    Not as comfotable with this guitar as I am with the Gibson..... I picked up some EB Slinky 10's (on sale at GC, 3 sets for $9) and wasn't really happy, especially after playing better on my friend's Warlock.

    I had a brainwave and realised, different strings....need to re-adjust action. Did that and it's a LOT better. Not quite as smooth as the Gibson, but getting closer.

    This guitar seems to keep a tune well...IMHO

    Also: to my dismay, this guitar does NOT fit in my SG hardcase. I need to take it down to the shop and get a new case :cry:

    Sure, I'll get some straight-up pics of it up here real soon

    But, in the mean time, here's a shot of me playing it

    Nope, it's on the back...same as the real SG

    Odd thing though, it has two strap knobs on the volume/tone side of the guitar (will take pics...soon)

    On purpose from the factory or one added later?

    Doesn't seem too different....the neck likes to fall in either position

    The two knobs are only about an inch and a half apart

    I'll get some pics soon...been busy lately

    The pics would be nice. You would think that they would put them further apart so the balance would be different though.

    Seriously....I'm not quite sure of the logic behind that either

    My camera really stinks....but I did my best. I spent my money on a guitar....not a camera...which is kinda obvious.....lol

    Why do you always refer to him as 'Master'?

    Are you into BDSM?
