Here is my '15 SG Standard, this SG is made like a '61 Reissue, the finish is incredible and the slim taper neck is pure pleasure, fantastic.

Fingerboard inlays are not plastic, they are made of real Mother of Pearl that give nice blue and pink colors. Of course I removed the GForce tuners, they were too heavy and I installed a set of KLUSON Revolution, they are light weight (very important for the SG), ratio is high 1/19 and the keys are very smooth. The best tuners for a Gibson IMHO.

The wide bevel pickguard came from Creamtone, the nut is a GraphTech TusqXL, pickup rings are taller M-69. I made a bridge conversion, Gibson ABR-1, the knobs are vintage repro.

The stock wiring is hand made (no PCB), with single coil split on the volume potentiometers. The finish i a cool Tranlucent Ebony.

That is a very sweet SG. I like the mods you made and also that you left the stock wiring alone. Sorry for the dumb question, but that is a mahogany body, correct? I only ask because you mentioned 'Translucent Ebony' as the finish name. If that is a 2-piece body, it is very well matched since you can't see any seam in the pics ... or is it a 1-piece??

Thanks, the body is made with 2 pieces of mahogany.
