A NOS 2017 Faded SG.

I wanted a SG with humbuckers. And, of those, I did NOT want a 498 in the bridge position. This one sports 490s.

The neck is beefy, like my other SG. And the 490s sound great!

It's odd, a SG not being red... but I don't mind. The "deal" was on these brown ones. Obviously not a big seller.

You've been in acquisition mode lately!

Did your rich uncle finally call it a day?!

I have been in acquisition mode. Now I’m in balancing mode. Some stuff has sold on Reverb. There will be a little more to go.

Sure! All are welcome!

I was playing this through the VHT Standard 18 rig tonight. Compared to my Les Pauls, this guitar seemed dark. I had a look under the cover and sure enough, 300k volume pots. It’s the same board that’s in my other SG with the P90s. Those pots work great with P90s.

So I pulled the board out of the cavity and changed the volume pots to 500k. Tones were already 500k.

Ok... nooOOOoow it has that SG ker-rang!

This is the first Gibson I’ve had to do anything to.

Like you, I do not care for 498 pickups, especially in the bridge. One of my LP Tributes has 490s, and they sound much better.
