  1. I am trying to find a vibrola/tremolo system for my SG Standard. The SG that I have has the batwing pick guard, so I know that there is at least one vibrola/tremolo system that will not fit. Are there any options out there that I should look at?
  2. I was introduced to the Everly Brothers by my dad and every time one of their songs comes on the radio, he will talk about how great and unique their harmony was. RIP Don, gone but not forgotten. Thank you for your contribution to music.

    White SG

    I want that guitar!
  4. Do you prefer the 58/59/60 Les Paul standards or the 57 Black Beauty (any of the 3 variations)? Are there any other models that you prefer instead of the ones I mentioned?
  5. I should have clarified that these are two completely different guitars, that's my fault.
  6. Do you prefer the Casino or the ES-335 and why?
  7. Well I did read all of the comments up till this point, brad1, and not one of them mentioned the Gibson website.
  8. So I guess Sweetwater is the best option lol. So why not order straight off the Gibson website?
  9. Which website(s) is preferable to order a guitar from?
  10. I have no idea what the Hardy ones are lol.
  11. Are indian laurel fretboards any good, like similarly good to rosewood fretboards? Is there a difference tonally and appearance-wise?
  12. Hello, What are everyone's thoughts on the P94 pickups by Gibson? What do you think of them as opposed to the P90 pickups? Personally, I think they are a great single-coil alternative, but I would like to see what everyone else thinks of them.
  13. Hey guys, What are your favorite colors on a Gibson guitar? Mine, for example, is gold top, but I'm also a fan of heritage cherry, iced tea burst and royal tea burst.
  14. I'm thinking about getting a Les Paul in the next few months and I am really fond of the color/burst options available (I am mainly leaning on the 50s Standard). How do you pick which color/burst to get?
  15. I would get the telecaster. I find the 61 standard tempting to buy too, and I already have an SG Standard from 2019. Like you said, you'll be able to fill in those sounds you're looking for, as opposed to the SG.
  16. I am currently trying to decide which of these two pickups to get for my SG Standard. Here's what I know so far: the Burstbucker pickups have Alnico 5 magnets and have a higher output, are found in the Standard 61s and a couple Les Pauls that I know of, the coils are rounded the opposite way I think, have really good clarity in the clean sounds, and provide the player a little more punch and bite than the regular Burstbuckers. The 57 Classics, on the other hand, have Alnico 2 magnets and have lower output than the 61 Burstbuckers, provide a sweet tone and great clarity in the clean sounds, and have really good crunch. I could be wrong in my description or may have forgotten something to consider, so feel free to let me know! I am trying to get a sound that's vintage, versatile, and fits the classic SG sound. I have heard that both pickup sets are great for this kind of sound. If there are any other pickups to recommend, do let me know and I will check them out.
  17. I bought an SG Standard last year on Black Friday. I compared it to the slim taper on the SG Standard 61 and personally, I preferred the bigger neck on the regular Standard. The slim taper I believe is for those that like to play fast. The rounded neck is close to the chunky neck found on the Les Paul Standard 50s. If you have big hands, then the rounded neck may be for you. Hope this helps even a little.
  18. I still have months to decide which one to get first, but I think I will follow your suggestion.
  19. Haha it's possible I just not get either of the Les Pauls.
  20. Thanks for your input guys! I think I know what I'm going to get now!
  21. @Kmonk I did look at some videos comparing both pickups and I can definitely tell that the P90s add a bit more crunch than the Burstbuckers.
  22. Hi guys, I'm torn between getting a Les Paul standard gold top with Burstbuckers and the one with P90s. Some of my influences include Pink Floyd, the Beatles, Led Zeppelin, the Clash, Eric Clapton, and the Beach Boys. I have a general understanding of both pickups. I'm leaning more towards the humbuckers, but I'm afraid I might get buyer's remorse afterwards. Which Les Paul standard gold top do you think I should get?
  23. Who are your biggest musical influences? I would ask yourself that question and see which Les Paul will best fit their sound. Also, if you get the chance, try them out and see which one feels more comfortable and sounds better to your ears.
  24. Thank you guys for your input!
