    Hi All,

    I have 2003 SG Standard that I think kicks ass. Just wondering what are the typical mods that people do unto these things for improved playability, tone , etc.....would appreciate your feedback with details i.e changing tuners to brand X tuners etc

    I can only think of a few: tuners, strap locks etc


    Thanks.

    hey there calibre,

    from what i've seen, there's a whole slew of things you can do to customize yourself into oblivion.....! i know that CharlieB is always emphasizing that the tuners don't need to be changed, and I'd tend to agree with him. in my opinion, a tuner's a tuner. the only time they don't keep tune, is when they're not working (not often the case). they either do what they're meant to do, or they don't, so the tuners really aren't worth changing.


    what you can change however, that'll provide a much more noticeable difference are the pickups, pots, caps, etc.... that stuff is much more influential (totally) in the sound that you'll get from the guitar. i'm relatively new to all of this, so don't put too much stock in my opinion, but just trying to help out a bit. :)

    Hey thanks mate.

    I just changed the saddles on my Tele to brass ones and was very pleased with the changes. That's what prompted me to ponder the same for my SG. Hehe I find it lacking in versatility these days.
