    If your SG has the same strap buttons as my Les Paul the plastic Dunlops probably won't work. The damn button is too large.

    That's quite a sexy guitar.

    I use Guitar Savers strap locks (or red Grolsch beer rubber washers) for all my guitars. Either one works great.

    Here's a black Guitar Savers washer on my Ebony SG Standard.

    I was hesitant to install Schallers for the same reason but wanted all my guitars to have compatible strap locks so I tried it anyway. For what it’s worth, I have no issue with the button poking me in the gut (and there is plenty of gut there).

    Just be careful what screws you use as too long and you’ll damage the fretboard. My SG had a #6 screw from the factory at the heel of the neck so I used a regular schaller button with a short #6 from the local hardware store with a small head but same thread pitch. If yours use #8 screws, contact MojoAxe. I think I used a 3/4” length screw but just measure the hole depth first :)

    I don’t think I’ve seen an SG with that finish before. It’s absolutely beautiful. :)

    That's why I grabbed it while I could. Seems to be not very consistent though as I mentioned. Some look basically red with a very mild burst going on. Glad I scored this one!

    Hey, I've had Dunlops on my SG for 15 years and never had a problem. I have Schallers on some other guitars though and I can't imagine why it would cause any problems.

    Wow, that looks so nice that you don't even need a Poker Chip for the Toggle Switch.

    Ya, get some Schaller straplocks and you're good to go. Those are on my SGs.
    Welcome to the SG Army! :beer
