That looks sweet.
That is one handsome classic look!
I like it. The color reminds me of one of Greg Hetson's SGs I saw on tour, a reddish plum color, not cherry.
Thanks to everyone for all the great comments. I think it plays great and sounds even better....now all I have to do is learn how to play it!
My only complaints are:
1. I wish I had used shiny nickel PU covers instead of the dull brushed ones (maybe I'll change them later).
2. This guitar is a little neck heavy (not my fault...it's the nature of the beast). If I ever build another I'll select a denser/heavier body slab.
3. Output jack is too close to the tone control (again, not my fault). Now I have to go and and get some cords with right angle connectors.
Turned out GREAT !
Pat yourself on the back for a job well done !
Man, she is a beaut!! I kinda dug the white pick guard over the red body on that SG... Add a wine red SG to the growing list of "build-it or buy-and-mod-it"
You should actually be able to polish those nickel covers fairly easily. A little jeweler's rouge which you can get a lot of places. You can pick this compound up at Lowe's and a small drill or Dremel buffer attachment and you are all set. Guitar is a beauty!
<grin> Couldn't have done it without you!
Maybe next time....but pearl, not white
Good Idea....but it seems like it would be easier to change the covers (I don't think I would try the on a wheel without taking the covers off anyway.
I have never heard this before, what an awesome idea. why haven't I heard this before?
okay, carry on...
Wow, this is an amazing build. I'm so impressed, there are no words.
I've read this entire thread over the last 3 hours. ****in amazing dude!NOt only your posts, but many of the replies in this thread provide people like me with so much information and inspiration. After I have acquired the few things I am saving up for, I will definitely be hunting down some wood and gathering a few more necessary tools and starting my own build, using threads like this as reference. I was going to get a kit and start with that but hell, I'm gonna start from scratch and find a way to make it work . I might even start with an SG. Cheers!
Also, plug that bitch in and let us hear how it sounds!
Thanks for the kind words guys.
You know, if there's a theme to all the builds I've posted here, it's this......as long as I take my time and follow the "best practices" guidance available here and elsewhere, that my project ALWAYS turns out better than I expected.
