So I've got a 2002 Gibson SG Standard. It's a sweet one too compared to ALOT of sg's i've seen lately. I don't feel so bad for paying top dollar for it right before Gibson dropped the price by 500 bucks and started producing firewood. It's pretty much stock. Bone nut and graphite saddles just to keep things smooth, but otherwise, all original top-notch gibson parts (hehe). I HATE the neck pickup. It sounds like ass, and that's all there is to it. Plus, it wobbles around and rattles in the body. It's too muddy to even use. I would like to entertain options to replace both pickups, but am not exactly sure where to start looking. The bridge pickup is somewhat lacking in the thumpy and clear department. It's also nearly impossible to coax feedback out of it. I like a crisp, but thumpy overdrive sound. Clear and wet sounding I suppose. I don't really know how to describe it. It needs to be thick and very responsive. I play through a Soldano Astroverb through a Verven 412 cab with Swamp Thangs. I'm also looking at replacing the stock pots and caps and such. Basically tossing the electronics and getting new ones. Also, is there someone who makes tuners that LOOK like the kluson ones that come stock on the SG standard but actually hold the thing in tune properly?
