just curious, i have heard these things and they will fool you into thinking its a lp. carlos santana used one on europa, i swore up and down as well as several other friends that it was a lp. would love to see some pics of this interesting axe

or how about a fat sg with the tips of the horns cut off, the toggle placed somewhere else?

Some images off the internet. BB





One of my best buddy guitar friends, had a late 70's Yamaha SG series. I played it live, and it effing SCREAMED!:dude:(circa 1986!) I found out later that he had replaced the stock pickups with Seymour Duncan Jeff Beck models!:wow: He sold that guitar and offered me the JB's for $20 each!:wow: That same JB, bridge position-from 20+ years ago is still in my '87 Standard!:dude: Those old Yamaha guitars played very well!:D

Well... if it has a neck through-body... and those hips arent wide enough for an sg... I'll stick with my previous statement :thumb:

I have an old cheaper one...with a three piece body...I do not play it much but it is nice....and when I pick it up I do enjoy it...(it needs a bit of work)

I've had 2-sg500's and a sg1000, both were real nice guitars. The better ones can sometimes be really heavy, though.
