    I've posted pics of it before, but this is my '71 Gibson SG-200... I was watching the youtube vid of Jeff Beck talk about his Tele-Gib today, so I thought why not make my Gibson more Fender like?

    This guitar already has a tele style control plate, on which I previously installed some chrome Broadcaster knobs... I have a pickup ring from a chopped Tele bridge plate in my parts drawers, so the question is, should I install a Tele bridge pickup in my Gibson SG?

    You know I am gonna change the bridge too because the one that's on it is pretty crappy... Maybe I could install a Bigsby B16 with a Tele pickup... :)
