    Good day all,
    I am new here. Been playing since the late 70s, but am a fairly recent SG convert / fanatic. I have had a few different SGs over the years, but they never stayed long. Just not the right guitar for where I was at the time, or just not good examples possibly.
    The 3 I currently have are all a little different.
    FSR with firebird neck pickup now has a lower wind mini in the neck and a bigbsy b7 with vibramate.
    The '61 is an amazing chunk of wood and is 100% stock except a refret, stock 57 pickups.
    The Diablo was one I hunted down after becoming a SG player. Swapped hardware for aged nickel and 57+ in the bridge. Stock bb pro in neck. For what I do, the balanced coil, A2 mag is it for an SG. Also changed it to 2 vol, no tone controls. I like the a5, of the bb pro for the neck on this one.
    Glad to be here!
