  1. Damn, I thought the binding would appear once the pickups went in. . Seriously though I do love the binding on my 61 but my hands know this neck well.
  2. yeah, but does it look like this after: A big part of it is not only the sound but the look too. Thanks for the advice though.
  3. Yeah, I wasn't sure. I emailed Terrapin Guitars to ask if the holes would line up.

  5. I love the neck on my 61 RI, I vote slim.
  6. Thanks for the info GuitarJunkie, that site does have a SG Classic template.
  7. Hey guys, I have been trying to sell my SG Special for about a month and I can't even get $600 w/hard shell case. Now that Gibson has slashed prices on their SG's I'd be lucky to get $500 for it and at that amount it just doesn't seem worth it to me. So What I have decided is that instead of selling it to buy a Standard, I am going to put p-90's in it and make it a Classic minus the neck binding. I think having a guitar with p-90's and my 61 RI will give me more tonal versatility and a black classic would look pretty sweet. I also need to replace the saddles on it, so I have a few questions for those who have done this before or those who know how. I know I am going to need a couple of p-90's(I assume the dog ear style(I don't understand how the other style is mounted)) a new pick guard and that I'll need to do some minimal routing to accommodate the new pickups. So here are the questions I have: 1. Am I correct bout the "dog ear" style? 2. Where can a I get a nice looking pick guard? 3. Do the Nashville style saddles fit an ABR-1 bridge or do I need to buy the entire ABR-1 bridge assembly? 4. Does Anyone know where I could get some of the little metal volume/tone indicators, like those found on the 61 RI, I just think they are nice and would like to put some on my new Classic. 5. Am I crazy? Should I just try and get $500 for my SG and invest another $500 in a new Classic? To me it makes the most sense to just convert my Special since I've had it for 10 years and I am comfortable with it and know it plays really nicely. The conversion would only cost me about $250 (Can.) and then I have unique black Classic with a HS case... I dunno... like I said it seems to make the most sense to me. Thanks for all your advice.
  8. A couple I was excited for have already come out. Looking forward to "No One's First and You're Next' by Modest Mouse in August though.
  9. So, would you say she put out?
  10. If you loved it, do it. No exception.
