What would your custom made sg be like?


Recommended Posts

Mine would be


Mahogany Body and shape and bevels like my Sg 61 USA 2000 model

The big headstock

No pick guard

Angus dark cherry like the discontinued model

Asymmetric neck like the one on my Les Paul Standard 2008, bone nut ebony fretboard

cream binding

Tonepros brigde and stop bar

Tonepros kluson style cream tuners

Bare knuckle pickups

Pearl inlays, forgotten the name of the shape well like the inlays on my 61

Cream pickup switch

Volume and tone controls like my 61

And some other things regarding frets and electric, but i have to study it more before i choose

Three words:




Need I say more?


Custom head stock inlay, bound peghead, late 60's longer stronger neck joint, real MOP block inlays, 57/57+ pickups, no pickguard, chrome hardware, and of course the usual rounded neck. Also a side mounted output jack, black foiltop tophats.


Yeah, that would just about do it.

I prefer the slim taper neck.

I like the neck joint at the 22nd fret like the 61 RI, but it's not a deal-breaker.

I would rather have a small pickguard - or none at all.

A Bigsby on an SG is pretty cool.

The Supreme line was beautifully done with the Maple and 24 frets - just lose the gold hardware.

And P-90's kick *** no matter what you put them in!



If I could have one custom made?

I dunno.


But I do like shopping and finding the unusual ones.

I do like my Standard HC, don't get me wrong, but my dream SG is this:


Neck trough - solid black korina with korina wings(I would lose the set neck as this is much better).

Ebony fretboard (without inlays). 50's neck with matching headstock and cream binding.

No scratch plate and with white/silver top hat knobs. Nickel hardware - TOM bridge and stop-bar tailpiece.

Natural high gloss finish.

SD Pearly Gates humbuckers with out of fase switch.

Just an example of the wood looks:



Unfortunately Gibson will not build one of these.
