  1. Hi Guys: I always read about the 339 body being smaller than a 335 but larger than a Les Paul. Does anybody have the exact dimension for the body length, upper bout width, lower bout width and waist width? Thanks: RJ70
  2. My 2016 SG Standard has steel covers on the humbuckers. The face of the humbuckers seem to be generally parallel with the face of the pickguard. The face of the humbuckers are way out of parallel with the strings. My question is simple are the humbuckers supposed to be parallel with the pickguard or the strings? Thanks: bogart45harley
  3. I like Burstbucker pickup sets. The pickups have a white label on the back with BB1 or BB2. I've noticed allot of Burstbucker pickups advertised on eBay have other descriptions on the back (example AL V ) and some other descriptions. My question is simple. Is the pickup a real Burstbucker if the back label does not say BB1, BB2, or BB3? Thanks
  4. I agree with the 57 pickup advice, but you might try listening to some Burstbuckers if you can find them on You Tube. I think the Burstbuckers are smoother sounding than the 57s. You cannot go wrong with either of these pickups!
  5. I own a Gibson 2001 SG Special. I didn't like the sound of the stock pickups. I thought the sound was thin and harsh. I had Seymour Duncan (Vintage Blues SH-1N & SH-1B) pickups installed. These sound allot like the Burstbuckers on my Les Paul (Joe Bonamassa) limited edition guitar. Both the Burstbuckers and Seymour Duncan's have a smooth mellow Blues sound. I think you could probably hear both the Burstbuckers & Seymour Duncan pickups on You Tube.
