    … seems like a lot of people are bothered by the Dropbox link with the pictures so I’ll just get rid of everything

    Awright ! Congrats on the NGD, took a look @ pics and that is KILLER !

    Question: is it as Lester and SG, a 'LeS-G', as Gibson says ?

    Can you drag the photos here so I don't have to go somewhere else to look at them?

    I tried and they wouldn't load- I'm computer illiterate so if it doesn't work I can't ( and don't really try to be honest ) to fix it

    Thanks! I wouldn't go that far lol, it's 1\8 thicker than a standard SG and and while it may be a bit brighter it's still all SG and no LP in my opinion anyway

    This is what I do to load pics and there might be an easier way, but like i said, this is what I do.

    In this box is where you type. So I type my post, like "Hey check out my new guitar." Then I hit "return" twice to get a space between what I just typed and the picture(s) I'm gonna load.

    Now make the whole page smaller by, if you have a Mac, moving your cursor arrow up top left and clicking on the green dot.

    Now open your pics and just drag a pic into this box where you typed. You can drag up to ten pics. Now, under this box, you can see your pics all lined up. The top is the entire group of pics so click "full image" and all of your pics will load.

    Now click "post reply".

    I don't want to have to work to go see pics of someone's gear. If it's not posted here, I'm not going to go looking for it by clicking other links or clicking on a thumbnail. It's not complicated to load pics once you do it a time or two and you don't have to be computer savvy.

    Very nice SG, congrats
    The top looks good enough to me
    The could at least put a binding on the headstock it would look better on that guitar

    Coolio, imma really glad to hear that, I'm considering one of those! But besides not being able to find one I could play b4 buying, the GIBSON advert that sez itssa 'LeS-G' had me hemmin n hawin and I just did not pull the trigger...yet.That was Pre-Scam/Pan-demic and there were tons of them around. But now, hard to find....After hearing its all SG....its more of a possibility 4 me...those SG's have the Busrt-Buckers Pro's ? Those are my Fav GIBSON Pick-up's, like em better than the one set of Custom-Bucker's I've got.

    Where did you get that Bad-A$$ ? The shops I've been frequenting have a very limited supply of GIBSON's....almost none.

    Probably because the SG Modern and SG Standard have the same neck and headstock markings. An SG Standard neck would look strange with a bound headstock. Bound headstocks are features of SG Customs and SG Supremes.

    Thanks! It was between this and a 61 reissue, I talked to a salesman at Sam Ash-the 61 is back ordered and they had no idea when they would be in and the Modern was available to order but none on the way so we placed an order for the Modern and whichever came in first I was going to buy-then I got a call and they found this in the warehouse lol

    Just right click on the full size photo in Dropbox, choose Copy, and then right click and Paste into your post here. You don't even need to upload to Dropbox - you could just Use Edit -> Copy from your computer if they are there... then Paste here. Or, on a phone, do whatever you need to do to get the Copy option, and again, Paste here.
