And I love it! I’ve long wanted a HH strat and this doesn’t disappoint. I have another Gilmour pickguard for this guitar that I can interchange.
Some specs;
-Jumbo frets and 12” radius
-Alder body (very light)
-Wired up with Toneriders, Rocksong in bridge and a Alnico 4 in the Neck.
-50s wiring with one of the magnets flipped to get a quacky out of phase tone in the middle
- 2 volumes pots and 1 tone

I think the Toneriders sound fantastic especially the Alnico 4 neck

Hey!!!

Very nice!!!

VERY tastefully done!!!

There are some DiMarzio Strat style humbuckers that could/would also suffice.

But, your guitar with the trad HB's looks fabulous!!!

A Beautiful Guitar!!!!!

imo.

Why is it an SG? Why not a Les Paul? Or a PRS? Or any other of a million HH guitars? Just curious (I love my SG, by the way, but it is nothing like my other HH guitars).
SG is closest in tone, check out Frank Marino of Mahogany Rush, he plays an SG Special with 3, bridge pup angled same single coils on it, all he plays is the blues, I use my SG when I be don’t feel like hanging 9lbs of Strat on my shoulder.
