    Maybe thats why the environment suffers and a planet too.
    10pcs pickguard lot cheaper than one, that sounds like the aliexpress was the cheaper 10pcs lot and gibson spare part was the one stupidly expensive
    I am not against replacements if it is reasonable, but i am used maybe because i come from a poor country, when something goes wrong, try to fix it first. If its not fixable then buy a new part and use good pieces from the broken one. Consume society nowadays just buys clothes for one night/one picture and then they end up in the closet for another 5years until they finally find their way to the trash can.
    And my favourite one is gonna hurt many (grabs a popcorn while typing and waiting for a blast): buying a new smartphone because every year there is a new model available, so why not throwing away a good one just to get a new edition. Thats the wonder of a modern world.
    I wanna leave better kids for this planet

    As a matter of interest, doesn't the SG-400 Pro have Coil Splitting via push pull tone pots?
    Or did I dream it?

    The G400 PRO does. I have one, and the push/pulls came apart in my hand. NOT the highest quality.

    The Vibrola stays in tune if your nut is properly slotted and your strings are locking themselves to the tuners. See video above. I can testify that the thing takes all kinds of violence and abuse and stays in tune as I play METAL. Hands down the best trem ever made. And best looking. That goes for the Gibson AND Epi ones.
