The KLUSON Revolution tuners are awesome, high ratio, light weight, high precision, smooth action, perfect machine heads with a cool vintage design.

The GraphTech TUSQ XL adjustable nut give a nice classic style, killer

Those are nice improvements. As for the nut, adjustable nuts, regardless of material, are a crappy substitute which Gibson introduced in an effort to avoid the problem of making a proper nut slotted as exactly as is needed for top results. So they went with an acoustically crappy gizmo that offers adjustment at the expense of optimum sound. An adjustable nut is better than a poorly done solid nut, but a well-made bone nut is way better. The older SGs your parts changes emulate certainly did not have adjustable nuts, nor did they use Tusq. It's yours, do what you want of course, but if I had a '15 the first thing to go would be the nut, and the second would be the idiotic G force tuners. 3rd would be a headstock refin.

I have some of those same tuners and might put them on my SG Standard HP that has the G Force. Thanks for posting your beauty there as it makes my decision to use them on this guitar easier.

I will be honest, the trans ebony is one of the most unique and beautiful colors Gibson has come up with an a long time!

persoanlly, I can’t get over the “Les Paul 100” on the headstock... that's my own issue, nothing against the guitar. If it were not for that there would be one hanging on my wall

I was restringing my '15 yesterday and went to take off the first string and went "oh yeah." I take it out just as much as the others, but I really never notice it unless its pointed out or I'm doing something on the headstock. Which is kind of odd as I'm one of those that really can't get over some simple things, but for some reason, that isn't one.
