  1. I had a very similar problem with one of my old SG's a few years back.The note fizzled out at the 12 fret on the G string.It was more noticeable when I used heavier strings (ie 11 upwards, and improved when I tried a wound G string).I ordered one of theose tailpieces with spacers from Larry Corsa, and that didn't solve the problem.The guitar went through 2 professional set ups (which included checking and modifying fret height,nut height,saddle height,changing string gauges etc) but the problem never went away. I tried every permutation I could think of re pickup/polepiece heights/truss rod bridge height.I came to the conclusion that it was to do with the wood/construction somehow. Incidentally-If its bad at the 12th fret on the G, does the problem move up to the 11th fret if you tune the string up a fret?.I.E could it be a "dead spot" relating to that particular frequency?. I hope you sort it out anyway, and if you do, it would be interesting to find out how you did it for future reference!
  2. It seemed to be at the same place.Tried everything.
  3. It has its compensations for the non existent summers. Apparently this weekend is supposed to be good!--Fingers crossed!
