  1. It sounds like someone did a very professional grade pickup swap on your guitar. Every stock blackback model I've seen has had the open top gold pickups. You could send your serial number to Epiphone to be sure. What does it say on the back of the covered pickup? Does it look like the other one from the back? Maybe someone just added the cover. More importantly, how do you like the guitar?
  2. Hey Revolution Six, are those separate pickup rings or are they part of the pickup, such as Guitar Fetish's Retro pickups? I've seen some nice pieces from Stew-Mac that might do the trick. I wondered if the tone or volume might be affected by covering the pickups but this option would skip that issue. Thanks for the idea.
  3. Very nice! Is that just metal pickup rings added? I hadn't thought of that. Mine would look almost the same except for having a matte finish.
  4. I've got an SG Special faded brown and I love everything about it except maybe the uncovered pickups. That is I'd like to have them covered, somewhat for the look and somewhat for protection. The tape wrap around the coils has a couple of nicks in it and I don't want it to get worse. So how hard is it to add covers to pickups? And will the fit the same or will routing need to be done? Any tips appreciated, even if it's 'go to a professional'. Thanks Bill
  5. My NV-390 and PR-795 AE are from about 1979 - 82. Both from the Norlin years and fine instruments. One even has an ebony fretboard. Great guitars!
  6. Nope, those are both real nice guitars. I wouldn't mind having either one. I guess you'd like to have one too. You have a good selection of guitar pictures. Why don't you post them in the Gibson forums? The OP's question seems to have been answered a while ago. Yes, the Epi Custom that he bought turned out to be a very good guitar. That's all folks!
  7. SG player, what guitar do you actually own? The blue LP jr? Why keep spamming with the guitar photos? It's fine to post photos of great guitars but at least put them on the proper forum. There's a place for the Gibson SG, Jr, Les Paul and it's not here.
  8. You don't hear much about the older PR series. Glad you found a good one. There are some other discussions about suspect quality of 70's era Epiphones but I like mine and it sounds like yours is a keeper too. Epiwiki says 1979-85. Could that be right for yours? Norlin took over Gibson in 1969 or 70. I've got a PR 795AE, which I've had since the early 90's.
  9. My first and only (so far) SG, 2012 faded brown special. Hoping to channel some Frank Zappa or Todd Rundgren. Hope in one hand, ...
  10. Nice message photo, overday!!

    Good to see someone who appreciates the fine comical stylings of the Ghoul.
