saying hi

Discussion in 'Welcome Wagon' started by deluxeowner71, May 3, 2007.

  1. New to this forum, was told to say hi....have a '71 sg deluxe, and a '00 ash american Strat. Both guitars have a lot going for them, but i put a roland synth pickup on the strat, just to keep the sg stock. Have had the SG since the late 70's, and it is still the best guitar i've ever played. replaced the nut (cracked on the 6th) with a homemade brass one, and replaced the saddles with graph tech. Took the spring out of the bigsby to keep it in tune, and just polished the frets last year.

    Gonna go play some Zappa for a while.....even talking about the guitar gets me fired up. Cherish your guitars, and try to keep them a stock as possible. If not, keep the original parts....keep burning.

    Hey, I too have a 71 deluxe and it have had it since 71. It definately is a fun guitar to play and I have kept mine stock (save a headstock repair) - I love to play it LOUD and it loves to go to 11!
    Welcome to ETSG hope you find it as entertaining as I have.
