Just wanted to make a change and I always liked white SGs. I still need to do the final prep and clear coat but Ill get around to it later.

LOL you might not want to use my method. This guitar was a worn brown that for some reason somebody had sanded badly and then tried to put what looked like polyurathaine coating over the whole guitar pickguard and pickups too. I just sanded the poly off and tried TV yellow first but didnt like it so another light sanding and I sprayed it white. I had already replaced the pickguard and put it backtogether to see if I like the white. If I do then Ill clear coat it. Oh I just bought white spray paint. It turned out way better than i thought.

At first his pic fooled me on a quirky model I wasn't familiar with, and now your question leaves me wondering too. Only nbeers can fully explain what model his is etc. Nbeers, what model is this???????

Daphne, here is my 87 3 knob special. The 3 knob Pre 91 Special had 1 Volume, 2 Tone laid out like a strat. On mine the neck p'up sits right up against the fretboard.

I am curiouser and curiouser about Nbeers guitar's origins and transformation to it's current Albino status.

It came stock with a plain black batwing guard I changed it to 3ply BWB and it has the stock 490R and T. I put witch hats on it cause I dont like the blck bell knobs that came on it. I bought it used for 400 bucks.
