    My new (to me) used 2016 Standard T - looked to be unplayed when I saw it at Guitar Center. The first electric guitar I have ever bought at a guitar store.

    Man, am I envious of that guitar! A dogear'ed Sg Jr. In Pelham Blue is my dream SG (to complement my regular ol' p90 STD.)

    That is exactly what my '05 SG looked like when I bought it new! Sweet instrument, though p90s wound up being a better fit for my playing style.

    My first "real" guitar was an SG. Recorded my first tracks on it - including several solos to songs that were otherwise done. Hired gun. Woo hoo! Played some of my favorite early shows on it. For some reason that I can no longer remember, I stupidly sold it. And kinda forgot about it.

    Finally rectified that yesterday.

    Are those Phat Cats? If so, how do they compare to the p90s in the other one?

    They are GFS Brooklyns, so more of a HiloTron-type sound than the meatiness and bark of a p90. I found them to be very twangy and clean, lower output that the p90s in my SG Standard. Dirty they sounded excellent, more snappy and Fender-y than the p90s. I think eq-wise these pickups have a more scooped response than the midrange power of the p90s. Killer pickups, though...very crisp and articulate.

    ...if you can find them.;) Brooklyns were a verrrrrry short run about 10 years ago. I got my set from a guy who collected Brooklyn sets.

    Im thinking about putting a set of 12 to 52's with a wound 3rs on my SG. Just to try it out for slide.

    Im a bit worried about the neck. Mine is a 2014 model that has a slim maple neck.

    I normally use 11-49s. I think it should be fine. I just wanted touch base with you experienced folks.

    What's the heaviest strings you guys are using.

    I think the guitar can handle it. You might find a nut slot or two that need a bit of widening, but depends really. And you might need a bit of truss rod tightening too. But all that depends, just no way to know for sure until you do it. Good luck.

    So far so good!
    Talk about increased resonance. Louder acoustically.
