Greetings - finally bought my dream guitar.....

Recommended Posts

...and here it is. Ordered new just for me. A personal reward for a job well done in one area of my life. 

First impressions - love it. Sounds as good as it looks. Sounds so good straight into a tube Marshall. Just keep it in perfect tune and it'll roar. 

One thing that surprised me a tad is these "Roto" style machine heads. Why no vintage heads? I don't like the roto at all. Will have to change them out to something.....

Overall very very happy - I've met my dream and I'm not disappointed!

Nice looking SG - glad you realized a dream.  Give those tuning keys a chance.  Most of us that have been playing Gibson guitars for decades prefer Grover tuners to the classic looking Kluson that Gibson so often uses.  As  you say staying in tune is most important.

that is Sweet .    looks like a decent semi soft case too.

I like the "tulips" heads too,  but IIRC Most Kluson's have two screws to anchor to the back of the headstock,  Grover's use one.   if you're ok with "drills"... but I'd probably let it ride for a bit see if it "grew" on me as is.

thanks for the feedback Gents much appreciated. 

to clarify oh hell no I wouldn't even consider taking a drill to this guitar - the grovers are 100% staying. here's the extent of what I wish to swap out:

if you want to stay with chome heads, you should be able to find some tulip shaped ones.

 

like these on my ES135

The tulip-shaped tuning keys offer 15% more woman tone than the kidney bean ones. 

Just sayin'........
