Two customs, different birds.

I realized a couple of months ago that I own two customs. Hadn’t thought about it before.

1966 SG and 1982 Les Paul.

They both have gold hardware and ebony fretboard’s, mother of pearl rectangle inlays that start at the first fret, and the split diamond inlay on the headstock. The TRC says custom, the Les Paul says Les Paul custom. The Les Paul has a Nashville bridge and the SG has an a ABR-1. The nut on the SG is an inch and nine sixteenths and the LP is 1 3/4. Two inches and two and an eighth at the twelfth fret respectively. Both white, pearl white for the LP.

They’re both kind of showy but I don’t notice when I’m in the thick of things, and they both play great. I haven’t A/B’d them but they both can do punk to jazz. The Les Paul weighs about ten pounds and the SG about 8.

Any one else have two different Customs?

Don't have any customs... But yours are both gorgeous.
I've always liked the white SG custom. More than the les paul version

What's the difference in the 5 black customs with Humbuckers?

Different pickups in each?
Pickups but for few of them also construction (full body hog, vs maple cap), also different fret wire and neck profile. These are major differences, then it's all details (long/short tenon, tuners, bridge etc..). They really sounds all different. :)

We need sound demos. The people demand it.

Love those! The first time I saw a white SG Custom was in the hands of Keith Richards.
