I originally posted this on a dead thread it seems. Looking for some feedback positive or negative. I recently purchased a 2016 SG HP. I liked the wider neck feature Gibson offers with this model but the auto tune contraption on the head stock is useless. Not sure what they were thinking with that piece of shite. I do love the feel, weight, and tone of this guitar but the neck dive was killing me. I started trying to balance the guitar by replacing the auto tuner with light weight Planet Waves mini locking tuners then replacing the plastic pickguard with a brushed stainless steel one to add a little weight to the body. It helped a little but still wasn't comfortable. I didn't want to add any more weight to the body since it would ruin one of the best features of the SG, it's weight. I knew Stienberger had a solution for neck dive on their small body headless bases by adding an extended strap hook arm to change the center of balance but my searches for one of those arms was fruitless since they don't make them anymore and trying to find a used one was just as futile. So I decided to make my own extension arm. I used 3/16" aluminum plate and mounted Dunlop strap locks on it. The guitar came with the cool aluminum form fitted case so I couldn't mount the extender permanently so I had to use knurled thumb screws and threaded inserts to mount it to the guitar and make it easily removable. Luckily I have a friend that knows a guy that does powder coating which added a nice touch. Blends right in with the guitar.
