Dug a bunch of stuff out for restrings with an album and writing sessions coming up. This was a Cherry w/ gold hardware and white pickguard limited SG Custom and I bought it pretty beat up and had it refinished by Marty Bell (look up his work) in San Diego to mid-size metal flake silver sparkle. He's the king of sparkle. It's got a 498t in the bridge and both the neck and middle are 490r's that sound spretty good. I had it wired up like a '68 LP custom where the middle switch position puts the middle and neck pickups out of phase with eachother. Next upgrades with it will be a refret with jumbo tall and narrow frets, a super light tail piece and swapping the 490r's out for the new T-Types available in the Gibson Pickup shop!

Nice! A chrome pickguard would look awesome!
