I did the same - blank truss rod cover, reflectors, and added pointer washers. Note the Les Paul tenon cover too. Just to confuse people.

Finally got my 1963 SG Special up and running again, had to get the back of the neck resprayed, neck binding repaired, first 3 frets replaced, new nut, pickup covers, Kluson 3 in a line tuners and a Tonepro's bridge. Took a while but it was worth it, plays well despite the frets being a bit low, sounds awesome, pictured below with a younger cousin I've been using to get the P90 sounds.

To stay in tune, my '67 Special needed a new bridge and tuners, the Maestro removed, and fret and nut work.

Playing in tune is a different story. Gravity gives me about a 1/4 tone of wiggle room by leaning forwards or backwards. Fine of you have a good ear and can adjust your playing to it, 'cause you end up playing more in tune than a guitar usually can. Very easy to get the Bill Frisell pitch warble.


i can respect the talent...but i call that annoying.

A heavily modded Epiphone SG. Bill Lawrence L-500 pickups. RS pots, one push-pull to split the coils, one push-pull to reverse phase. Russian PIO capacitors. Before I made these changes, the only thing it would play was AC/DC, swear to God. I couldn't play anything else. Just AC/DC. Once I made the changes, it plays everything else now.

Cool, I always wanted to try those L500s
