Here is the Sweetwater picture of my 2016 Standard T.
Mine is the sister 2016 Standard T w/p90s. Not my pic, but, you get the idear...
The current project, does anybody have any idea what the heck it is?:
One of those 70s Sg deluxes with the half-moon control plates?
Like one of these.
I'm thinking maybe a 72 SG Professional
With those route fill in the pickup cavities and bigsby screw holes I'm thinking more along the lines of a variation of a an SG Recording
I plugged in the hole in mine too. It had a Kahler in it.
I know there's another thread for these, but what the heck. Here's my '05 Standard I converted to p90s. It's a killer. For the longest time it was my go-to gig machine. Best neck I've EVER played, period.
This is a '71(?) SB200 I re-did for a guy. The Pickguard was necessary to cover up a nasty huge pickup route some idiot had cut out at one point. Neat bass, rather high action though. All theee knobs were push pulls for various switching options.
Here's mine (2002 Special Faded)...it's my main player for the past two years and it's amazing. I want to play my others more, but I always grab this one when I need something that can do it all. I love the ebony board and the crescent moon inlays.
Holy mackerel... This poor thing has been through a lot in its lifetime.
Mine had a Kahler in it too. The cavity had been routed about an inch too long, and the gap filled with expanding foam.
A few years ago on tour in CA. www.deadonlive.com 2006 61 reissue. Played maybe 20 used SGs, then found this. A really special guitar.
Also got to play last guitar built for Jerry, the Cripe Tribute! Not an SG though.....
2003 SG Voodoo
2014 SGJ 140th anniversary edition. Although now it has a pickguard.
Likely an SG Pro. They came standard with a tune-o-matic, Bigsby, and neck binding. Two P90s in low frames. The SG Pro is the only Gibson I can think of that had pickup routes with huge end radii like the ones that have been filled on yours. It was an attempt to reduce the cost by making a single pass with a cutter. They were trying to do the same thing by having the guitar routed entirely from the front.
I don't know what the heck happened to the guitar to need that patch on the front. Someone did a very good job of piecing in the rong wood.
I assume you listen to the Voodoo Glow Skulls.
The guitar had a very badly installed Kahler bridge on it when I got it. The patch is my handywork .
Haha, not so much. I'm more into Black Sabbath. Actually at the time I wanted to get a Gothic model but they had just sold out and were replaced with the Voodoo. I'm pretty happy though, it's been a great guitar.
