  1. Well, fell victim to a cherry 2014 SGJ from SamAsh. Very cool guitar. Love it. I did not get any paperwork, so I was wondering what is the appropriate product for cleaning the body and for protection? The Gibson spray polish? Became concerned on the longevity of the finish.. Thanks glennc
  2. Hey there cody78, Well to ease my pain I purchased a 2014 SGJ. Sounds great, thick neck and lighter than a Squier Strat. At the price, for a real American made Gibson, it will do for a while. Thank you for the info as I now have more time and your information to begin an earnest search. First for funds and then a real Standard. Sure like the specs on the European Traditional, fat neck, 57's..... very cool mate! Take care Glenn
  3. Hello BigKahune, Looks like I am going to have to go with a used older model, not able to pay the extra money. The guitar was light and felt so good, didn't want to trade an ES-135 and cash for it. Still trying to come up with a plan!!!!! Now need to locate the appropriate years. glennc
  4. Good Day cody78, I don't know for sure, but it seems that the Traditionals are not offered in the US, bummer. Having a Epi 400 Pro which has a huge neck, I put on a leather fairly wide strap and there is no problem with the guitar staying in place. Now I have to figure which of the later SG standards have the maple fretboards....... Thanks again glennc
  5. Hello cody78, Thanks for the info! Did not know about the traditional SG, cool! Will go about trying to find some! Much appreciated!! glennc
  6. Hello to all, Hoping someone can refresh my memory. Several years ago, around the time the Jade Pearl Strats came out, I was looking at one. I also at the time tried a new (probable old stock), SG Standard that IIRC had a very substantial fat neck. It was wonderful and I now regret not having gotten it. Does anyone have an idea of what recent years they were produced without the slim neck? Thanks for any assistance, glennc
  7. Hello Mark, Maybe the problem isn't hydration. Other than the discoloration/dullness in several spots, it doesn't seem to show any other symptoms. Thanks for the idea! glennc
  8. Hello, I have signs of where it appears the wood has come away from the finish is a few spots. They seem duller. May try the steam shower. Thanks glennc
  9. Hello Riffster, Thank you for responding. It just has the f-hole and I was wondering if there was a special technique. Didn't think about using the distilled water!! glennc
  10. Hello, Want to know how to properly rehydrate/humidify an ES-175. Also how to tell how bad it is, if possible. Thanks for any assistance! glennc
  11. Hello rct, Thanks for your opinion and advice! Am considering.. glennc
  12. Howdy tweed2, Thanks for the response and necessary concerns. I am probably not going string through. Hoping the string spacing won't be a great problem. It'll be semi-cobbled. I will be able to intonate it when it's finished. Not much to lose!! I've seen bridges and pickups for under $50 on ebay, some way under. The members who post are helping with the figuring if it is worth the trouble. Want a pretty close to tele sound.. We'll see...... glennc
  13. Hello SV Stormy Monday Very cool! So I am not the only one!! Thanks, glennc
  14. Hello Parabar, I can understand your point. But I already have the full guitar and am not going to put it back to original. Hoping to get close enough. So thank you for your opinion! Seen Rondo instruments before, they are cool glennc
  15. Howdy, Have an Epiphone LP Jr., bolt on neck body. Want a telecaster and can't afford. So, what do you all think of the feasibility of putting a telecaster bridge and pickup on it? Any thoughts on what would be necessary? Any thoughts on how different it would sound from a telecaster? Thanks for any information and opinions! glennc
  16. Hello wlav, Thanks for your viewpoint. Decided to go Mean 90s, saw the Who "Isle of Wight" concert!!!! Really liked the P90 sound. Stuff on order! Glenn
  17. Hello CheapShoes, I am currently confused on the Epi SG/G-400 Pros and the 66 version. Mine had two humbuckers with split coils, the small pickguard and the truss rod cover says SG Pro. On my amp, to me the humbuckers did not sound bright. Especially when compared to the Mean 90. IMHO the guitar sounds best with the bridge Mean and the neck humbuckers together. Gives me a nice sound. Then I can switch to the bridge for the single coil sound and the other way for the humbucker. Don't care for the humbucker which sounds to me not as harmonically rich ( I hope those are the terms ) as regul
  18. Dislike the sound too much and already have dual humbucking guitars. This is a pay and play project. Just doodling and trying to hear from some people who might have experience with that guitar and weird combinations {:-))! Glenn
  19. I kind Sir, don't aspire to that much of a fine taste as of yet, if ever! Glenn
  20. It would be a least expensive change with the Mean 90, and I can vouch for the bridge sound. Just mulling over still, the liking of a 57 in the neck. Very expensive. Probably try out the Mean first. Thanks as always for your opinion! Glenn
  21. Howdy Bluemans335, Finally got the knob off the post after the post came out of the switch..... My original thought was to go with another Mean 90 or maybe a Phat Cat. But it is kinda interesting having a humbucker sound and the big single coil. Have to listen to Live at Leeds {:-))! Thanks! Glenn
  22. Hello to all, Purchased an Epi SG Pro. Beautiful guitar, splittable humbuckers. Bought it to mod and play. Put a Mean 90 in the bridge, broke the pull volume switch trying to get the knob off. Replaced it with the CTS 500K linear, 250K Audio for tone and sprague .22uf cap from my Epi LP junior. Like the sound. Really don't care much for the sound of the stock humbuckers, now it has the original in the neck with original pots. Wired it as it was, not 50's style. Was hoping to get feedback and opinions on the guitar from fellow owners. May eventually change the electronics and the neck
  23. Strange, was just at Sam Ash and saw a similar Gibson, looked like a Les Paul Junior with 2 humbuckers sitting next to an Epi Les Paul Special 2 limited. Both in sunburst. Was on other business so didn't notice about the Gibson's tailpiece or if it had an adjustable bridge. Happen to love the LP Jr style guitar. Interesting looking guitar!! Glenn
  24. Well the Korean plants apparently weren't profitable enough for them so they reportedly switched to China, read about the Apple IPhone worker's and their situation, a while back. It is on the internet though..... Good advice on being aware about the what and whom! Glenn
  25. Hadn't a clue. IMHO further support of this company or it's partners is just plain wrong! Glenn
