Got in my SG Classic. Its an 09.
I wanted to do my own thing here so I gutted it!

Grover 18:1 kidneys
Straplocks
Custom poker chip and black switch tip
CTS 500k pots
Russian PiO caps .015 neck and .022 bridge
Wolfetone mean/meaner P90s with A5 mags vs the A2s
Proper Witch Hats and Pointers
Darkened and oiled the board

plugged into my Orange clean with a WamplerPantheon. Holy hell does this thing kill especially on the neck pickup.
Anyway, enjoy!

Nice. Congrats! My SG P90 Classic is without question the BEST SG I’ve ever laid hands on. There’s something special about these.

Did you have to order the Wolfetone's specially with the weird pickguard mounting they use on the SG Classics, or did you just swap the bottom plates with the stock ones?. They use what seems to be a Dogear P90 with the bottom plate flipped, and little threaded clips on the ears to take the mounting screws on those SG's.

It has the black Tinnerman clips on legs with an open ended hole. It works.
