This is my '72 or so SGII. I recently had it refretted and installed a new bridge and Firebird pickups. I'd like to get a control plate, pickguard, and truss rod cover for a Deluxe. Some push-pull pots for more options would be nice as well. I like how it plays now though. The neck is pretty slim, especially at the nut (duh) and the fretwork is nice. They had to plane the board to refret which I wasn't thrilled about but I'm not sure it could've been Plek'd otherwise. I love the looks of the bridge and it's adjustable like a Badass style wraparound. I also like the pickups a lot. They're kinda high resistance for AlNiCo Firebird pickups, I think, at 9 and 10k. In this video I'm straight into an HT-5 (the "metal" version) using a V-Type speaker in a combo amp, I think. I like that the bridge pickup has a bit of twang to it. I don't use the neck pickup a ton but it's like a 335 meets a Strat, to me. Good singing bluesy lead tones. In this one I'm just using the looper on my Empress Echosystem delay. The amp setup is the same. Another one with the looper and the HT-5 but using the 8" Jensen in an old Gibson GA-5 Skylark. Here I'm going into a '76 SLP. Very loud.
