    The SG is a completely different beast from anything I've ever played, I've noticed a huge learning curve between that and my Les Paul. It's just a really weird feeling guitar, I thought upper fret access would be easier, it feels harder. Maybe it just takes some getting used to, the neck is completely different from my Les Paul even though they're both 24.75".

    The neck on an SG seems to "stick out there" if you're sitting. That I've noticed. Has to do with the waist on the guitar body, which is set back a bit more on an SG (fit on your knee in a different spot). Never noticed much of a difference standing, but granted I don't play standing too much these days.

    My not so newly acquired SG Classic, top picture with various road debris from Daytona Beach... And the second image showing Pete Townshend's signature on the back of the headstock (that I covered with four coats of lacquer for protection).

    2017 faded T worn cherry.
    A little polish, pup covers, reflectors, TR cover and a pokerchip and she dolls up nicely.
    Very pleased so far.

    You know, I did not like the neck on my SG at first and now I love it! Going from a LP to an SG felt foreign at first, now going from my SG to my LP feels weird. :laugh2:

    My #2, 2015 SG Standard - Very very good SG except the weight of the stock GForce but this SG become fantastic with a set of Kluson tuners.

    I'm just about ready to finish this one up...just need to solder in the pickups and string it up!

    Pickups - Seymour Duncan 59's
    Wiring - Toneman 50's Wiring Kit
    Tuners - Hipshot Locking with Amber Buttons
    Duesenberg Les Trem II

    The pickguard is actually aged too, but show up whiter than it is...
