Have I thrown this in the mix??
Epi G310 ....call her Butters......cause she plays ----like BUTT-AH
Looks like the shots of my '14 Standard have disappeared so here's a couple again, along with a shot of my other white guitar, a '15 Mexican Strat. I picked that up new for just £300, and it has to be the best value guitar I've ever bought, even at the regular price of £430 it would've been a bargain. Currently my favourite player, though, oddly, it doesn't inspire me to buy any more Strats.... But another SG is always on the cards, and I'd love to try one with a maple neck (Raw Power?), you caught my attention there JohnnyGoo!
Sweet bud! White just .. seems so right! LOL
At first glance I thought maybe yer penny pinchin arse had splurged on a bargain of a cheap Gibson SG faded (note the shamefully hidden headstock & logo? Hey, it's ok bud) But then as I scrolled down to just under your last picture I seen Butters & 310 & thought,... what a great name for one of those dating / sex hook-up sites eh?
I can see the add now,.... Butters 310 ... C'mon over to my place Ladies! I'll strip ya down all necked, grease y'all up with butter, & chase ya's around the house playin a little game I call 'State Fair'! Big fat old Mama sows welcome as well as all you dirty lil Piglets too. Butters310 don't discriminate, disseminate, differenciate or eliminate! I do lubricate, dominate, fornicate & ejacula^@! Come be my Little Piggy & I'll be yer Butter Boy! Call me. Butters310
Don't want these to get lost in the shuffle...
A couple of years later and this SG:
Looks like this now:
I've changed the plastics, electronics and hardware to my linking over this years. A bit of trail and error, but it's almost perfect now!
The lady is aging well.
I'm two Standards deep in the White SG Club.
Always on the prowl for more, too. But only the Music123 '05-06 models. You know I gotta have that '50s neck!

Can you educate me on the '50s and/or '60s necks. I never looked it up and don't have a clue which is a baseball bat or whatever.
50's is the thicker one, 60's th slim one. The 50's is usually found on the batwing Standard, Classics, Fadeds... and the 60's on the '61RI, the new small pickguard Standards, etc..
oh my god this is gorgeous
*opens up his GAS list .... adds that one to it*
Fahad, while I know it's standard procedure around here to only offer drooling admiration for everyones SG and although I do love your guitar, I gotta ask WTF is up with that White Pickguard?? It is in such contrast with the white of the guitar body that it just seems to stand out. It reminds me of when people bang up a car door or hood & go to the scrap yard & throw on whatever color part they find & use it even when it's not a color match anyway because it fits the guitar err I mean guitcar. oh shoot did I say,.. fits the car!.
OK, I'm just teasin ya, but I just know this has a story & explanation to go with it. So,.. Lay it on me bruddah. I just gotta know.
Grabbed an up-to-date shot of my Standard while I had the camera out taking snaps of my new Strat. Now has a roller bridge & chrome selector switch tip.
Chrome switch tip. I like that.
This is one of my favourite SGs on the forum! Good call on the chrome tip
Very nice. Is it a Custom Shop ?
Thanks! No, not custom shop, one of the Guitars of the Week from 2007, a regular 61RI, but in Classic White:

The first picture is in stock form, the others are with different hardware and plastics (ABR, tall pickup rings, wide bevel pickguard...) that gives it a tiny bit of a vintage-inspired or Historic reissue vibe
