    Thanks. I like those thick white layers and the old shape. Gibson needs to do better on new pickguards. Thin and ugly don't cut it.

    Love the neck on SG.

    Got this 2002 SG Standard yesterday, upgraded with great sounding Skatterbrane Yangbranes pickups.
    Been playing some 1967 era Cream / Clapton and some 'Get yer ya ya's out' Stones / MT lately, and it really nails it!

    Look very close to the "Townsend SG" pictured above and previously in this thread.

    Could it have been a '67? When did the bigger guard begin?
    I don't think anybody actually answered you.

    1967 was the first year for the large guard.

    Here's my '67 Special:

    Re: Show the love...post your SG's



    I bought this 2001 "Made In USA" SG Junior on a whim from a local shop about 5 years ago. It was (relatively) cheap, and I wanted an SG. It has a great chunky neck and nice frets, but I always found it a little muddy and one dimensional plugged in. I used it as my travel guitar for a few years, practising and writing on it in hotel rooms whilst on business and on holiday. Other than that it sat in its case, unloved.

    I advertised it for sale for a while, but about a year ago I did the '50s wiring mod on it, and spent a while adjusting the pickup and polepiece height, and it completely transformed the plugged in sound.

    I don't know why, but this model was made with the slanted bridge studs, like an old Les Paul Junior, and supplied with a compensated bridge for the straight studs, as seen on the Townshend model. The two just don't go together. I had another compensated bridge left over from a project that was designed to intonate on the slanted studs, so put that on. I then fitted a set of old chrome '70s Grovers I had knocking around as the tuners that came fitted were pretty crappy, and I just love old Grovers.

    It's now my favourite guitar. I use it for everything, from sitting strumming unplugged on the sofa, to wailing through the Marshall half-stack with my band and all points in between. It's become the guitar I judge all others by.

    I don´t have the most historical correct SG, bu I have one of the oldest : ser # 0 8877.
    I bought the bare wood and fitted a mix of repro and vintage parts.
    On the bottom pic it is to the left together with my 90´SG and a 1968 also full of repro parts.
    SGs ROCK !

    No prob..i'm keeping mine on as well..I don't ever use it..and I'm kinda superstitious about the handle in the full back position adding to the tone, because it lays on the body LOL...
