The Sg arrived a couple of days ago, I immediately cut off the '9s that were on it, oiled the fretboard, put 10s on it, and raised the action a bit on the treble side, only to discover it played even better lover than it was before.  (You couldn't slip a butterfly's fart between the strings and the fretboard to begin with)  The thing's a little monster, and well worth the money!  Tone for days and days!  It's so light it's like playing air guitar!

Sweet Danny! I was looking at your guitar online and a Firebird with one pickup popped up. 1300.00 smackers. It's a real Firebird with the neck through the body, has the little ridge going across the body. Upside down headstock. Silver metallic. Very tempting. Looks like Gibson is getting their poop in a group finally!

Yo Chuck!   I used to have a Fender Lace Silver in my mid. position and a Seymour Duncan quarter ponder in the lead position on my 65 Strat which had I liked the sound big time.  I sold my 65 Strat prior and put the original pups back in it when I sold it.  I now have a newer Strat which has Fender Custom 50 hotter pickups in it which I dig.   Great info on your pickups and jam down my friend! 8) 8) 8)

My buddy Tom had Lace Sensors in his Strat. He had them set up with the bridge at the neck and visa versa. He said he loved them. I've been digging the P90s so much that the Strat pups sound a little thin. Hoping the Jeff Becks remedy the situation. Rock on EC!

I've been experimenting around with various pickups. My orange Strat had the original noiseless pups that came with it. Noiseless but also kinda weak. Swapped them out for some Fender V-Mod pups. I liked them better than the noiseless but still not that great compared to the tone I'm getting from the Buddha P90s (for humbucker slot) in my Gibson Firebird Studio. Played a blues jam last night. The jam sucked but I let a guy play his Strat with Jeff Beck noiseless pups through my amp. I was impressed with the tone. Bought a set, going to install them in my orange Strat. I'll let you know how that works out. Still waiting for the Buddha P90s for my Les Paul and Ibanez Prestige RG6UCS. Rock on dudes.

Reading the specs on that... I'm jealous! " Comfort and playability were two of Gibsonís primary concerns when they were designing the SG Special. Youíll be delighted by how this guitarís fast SlimTaper neck profile comfortably fits your hand in just the right way. For your playing pleasure, the rosewood fingerboard is buffed to silky smoothness and bound with rolled edges so that no fret ends impede your dexterity. The frets are dressed to perfection using a Plek Pro machine for optimized playability. Typically reserved for top-dollar custom guitars, this process levels the frets with pinpoint precision, providing you with the most playable fretboard youíre likely to own." Kick ass!!! Wish I had the dough, I'd be getting one my own seff!

Damn! Mighty tempting... I think my Firebird Studio has the same specs and I absolutely love the way it plays. I have a few medical issues to sort out first before buying another guitar though. Asthma been kicking my ass lately. The meds are pricey as f*ck. I have 4 amps I need to sell though... and a couple guitars.  :idea:

Way cool spec's and looking Gibson SG!   Yep, P90's are cool, I have a Eastwood Sidejack with hot P90's in it which I dig.
