Those base plates are a PITA to find for some reason. I’m probably going to improvise something out of wood for one of my SGs soon.I like the humbucker-like mounting ears for the P90s
I've got a set of MJT P90s in my 2020 SG and don't care for using foam, particularly as high as the bridge pickup needs to be (needs two layers of foam).
Wouldn't be hard at all to make... couple of pieces of 3/4x1/8 aluminum barstock and four 4-40 holes.Those base plates are a PITA to find for some reason. I’m probably going to improvise something out of wood for one of my SGs soon.
You made me go double-check mine. I used an SG Special pickguard on my Standard and didn't remember holes for the pickup height screws.Different situation for me, I have a late 60’s special, so its made for the pickguard mounting. It’s been on the back burner though, I have other projects I’m more interested in, and it really needs a refret before I worry about anything like pickups. I just chip away at it a little at a time, I’ve had it almost 10years and have only played it 3-4 times.
Likewise. My 2020 SG Custom I picked up feels cheap in comparison. These new finishes feel very much like nitro. They do not feel like poly. Very, very nice. If the poly has turned you off in the past, you will not be disappointed in the new worn finishes. Good stuff.I recently sold a G400 in worn red as i could not get along with it. I did not like the thick mat poly and the veneer it had.
The new classic looks like a very nice replacement especially after seeing these photos. I love the open grain finish and that fretboard is very fitting.
If i am not mistaken humbuckers fit in those routes if one would desire to do so, a new pickguard would be needed tho.
