Stunning SG Standard and a real exceptional player from your description. And totally agree about Gibson guitars and Gibson pickups. Hard to find a better combo!I'm always in for one of Daniel's giveaways because he has the best stuff! Thanks for doing these!
For my entry, I'll do a show and tell about my #1 guitar. It started life as one of those GC exclusive 2011 Gibson SG Standards. It has a silverburst body, ebony fretboard, and came with Burstbuckers 1 & 3.
Over the years, I've dabbled with all sorts of mods. The first thing I did was install a real RS wiring harness to replace the 300K pots Gibson insisted on using. Eventually, I swapped the pickups for Gibson P94s and put a Bigsby B5 with Vibramate on it. I grew tired of the Bigsby and wanted to try Fishman's new pickups, so I decided to swap a lot of the original hardware, as well, for locking stuff. Turns out, it's really annoying to have to charge a battery in a guitar, so I finally decided to swap the pickups back to proper Gibsons and make the guitar look classic like it should. (This all happened over a very long time; I promise I'm not that fickle!)
So here it is in its current iteration. It has all nickel hardware with locking Hipshot tuners, Tonepros bridge and tailpiece, and '90s Gibson 57 Classics with A5 magnets. It's tuned and setup with custom gauge strings for Open C ala Joey Landreth, and at this point there's nothing I would change. (Well, maybe lighter strings but for the same tuning. I went really big with the custom gauge.):
Thanks for Participating Chandy and look forward to announcing the winner and am rooting for you man!!
You get a spot with the Supah Cats in the eternal pleasure celestial palace of good vibes!!
