    My 2015 50s tribute playing pickup mule after a bunch of Pup iterations. I've worked out a rodded P90 recipe that really sings!

    Stunning guitar! Love the way the Pelham Blue has taken on a greenish hue. Would be interesting to know what percentage of SGs from that period had that finish. Less than 5% percent I suspect.

    Thanks! I don't have any numbers, but yeah, I think the percentage is quite low. It seems to be more common in the SG-style Melody Makers starting in '66, though.

    For years I have desired a black 61 reissue style SG similar to the one Angus Young has been playing these days onstage.I found this limited edition for 2017 one and jumped on it before they are gone.Here she is next to my beloved 2013 SG standard(which is pretty much a 61 reissue except for the slightly smaller headstock and added split coil capability):

    Hi

    Actually they are Tusq saddles!!! I bought somewhere in ebay. I always do a little sanding with a small file to get them comfortable when using a Tuneomatic.

    The tusq saddles with the wide range pickups make the SG sound really fat but keeping the highs

    The saddles on my 1976 Yamaha SG are nylon and sound great. There's no sign of wear either. They should see me out!

    2001 SG Gothic with ebony fretboard. I added the black schaller strap locks, black Gibson knobs, and Bareknuckle Abraxas pickups.

    here is my 2017 faded worn brown-it was photographed by gibson for AMS ads- so if you have a catalog or seen the model online- it was this one. IMG_20171121_202550.jpg
