You can't tell by the pics here, but that has our trademark "Tort" truss rod cover in our keystone headstock shape.

One screw, and the bottom is held in place by the back of the nut.

Thank you!

I"m on the preferred builder's list at Lindy Fralin pickups. Unless otherwise specified, all DSG guitars come stock with Fralin pickups. The great thing about Lindy is you can have a phone conversation with him and get exactly what you are looking for in a pickup. I have to say that Lindy's offerings so far to me have been of top-quality of build and sound.

I have to admit, I've never tried Fralins. I absolutely love Lollars, but I'd be frickin' stupid not to go with your recommendation. You're the best!! :)

Congratulations to both of you-- another killer guitar! :applause:

Love this SG! The finish is unusual-- and unusually attractive as well. Too cool!

But whoa, that fretboard? Jaw dropping! :shock:

I have a pre-DSG Telecaster that Dave built for me four or five years ago... and that's my Desert Island Guitar, right there.

The man is simply amazing.

Again, gratz!
