    No, I haven't had the time. I didn't really get into it properly until last summer. I plugged the reamed out tuner holes and redrilled for Klusons, re-radiused the fretboard, refretted it and set about refinishing it. I didn't bother fixing the pickup rout because the dogear covers it. Oh yeah, I've made a pickguard too - thanks for the template.

    Here's a reminder of how it was when I got it: white refin over cherry, fretboard planed almost flat, Bill Lawrence humbucker, ugly Schaller bridge, Schaller machine heads... first thing I did was dump the HB for a P-90.

    I though it was you... it's been a while though. I just checked and the note on the tracing says "regards, Gary".

    My new SG Standard Custom with Ebony fretboard, I love the Gibson TP-6. Neck is a little more thicker on the Ivory SG.

    I'll play. I don't think I've ever posted pics of my SG. Just a lowly SG Standard USA model in Heritage Cherry. From 1997. Love the attack and growl that this has over the smoother LP tones. Great contrast without feeling like drastically different guitars.

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

    I've had a fair number of SG's over the years. Looking back at old photos and remembering, I wonder why I let some of them go.

    Here is the current crop.



    L-R '74 Std., '13 Original, and '70 Special in Walnut.

    Sweet! However..the first one on the left isn't a '71..more like '74-'75, but very cool none the less..I own a '76..

    A '71 Standard would still have the large guard, trapezoid inlays, shallow cutaway bevels, etc..a '71 Deluxe would have had the front mounted control plate, LP style pickguard, but was first to have 335 style MOP block inlays from the first fret on...sorry to say yours is a mid/late 74-early '75..the ebony board is also indicative of those years as well.
    Dig this timeline I've been working on at the SG forum..

    Thanks for that, Kris. I always struggled with dating that one accurately. Just looked at the pots which show a date code of 1377430, putting it as mid '74.

    Damn I'm good LOL..Naw really man, you are welcome! I wasn't trying to be a jerk or anything, hope you didn't think that.
    I love the hell out of mine..Norlin or not..I did build new harness for mine using very tightly spec'd CTS 500K audio taper pots, but reused the stock Sprague Cera-mite caps..not too bad of a job I s'pose..and way more useful than the 300K linear volume and 100K linear tone..

    Mine also has a BB1/498T pickup combo (until I can find a CLEAN set of Tarbacks...maybe..sounds absolutely killer with this config..) Just with every other Gibson pickup, the Tarbacks really shine with 500K pots..Food for thought ZZ..no worries about pulling yours and trying 500K...really turned mine into a flamethrowing Historic killer..

    Nice group you have here..I had a '72 SG Pro, and have a '72 SGI and a '76 SG Standard. Big fan of that era...though I hate to be "that guy", I am more than 100% certain the FrankenSG body has to be a '73-mid '74..and here's why..
    The neck join is at the post late '71 location, an '84 neck was still built with that body style, so it would fit up..a '70 body would have either the "swimming pool" routes or the large rounded routes with an obvious channel for the wiring..but has the pickups located in the '73-'74 location..a '70's pickup routes would not have the neck pickup butted up against the neck, but '73-'74 would...also, those are clearly '73+ cutaway bevels.
    Still pretty sweet IMO, but in no way a '70 body..they just didn't make 'em like that then.
