I played an '05 SG supreme at GC recently and the pickups were just ALIVE in that thing compared to every other SG i've played. Are these '57 Classics in the bridge or something else?
Didn't they have an ebony board and maple cap?
Those 2 things would up the "snapiness" of the guitar.
My SG custom seems to cut more than my '61 RI.
Yes, ebony fretboard and maple top. Not sure if snapyness was it, but it seemed like it was much more versatile in regards to how the tone/distortion broke up on a relatively clean tube amp depending on how light or hard your pick attack was. I could almost get very clean with the volume on 8 with a light strum but when I dove in with the pick and upped the pickup volume to 10 it was like I turned on a pedal. Is this normal for these pickups in an SG? If I got a SG Standard should I go to the '57s or a burstbucker for this?
