Hello.. It's not like I'm actually buying one right now, but I was playing my mate's SG Standard just the other day thru my Bad Cat and it sounded absolutely fabulous. It also recorded very very well. It was a bit of a struggle to get used to the neck and radius as I'm a full time Fender dude normally. Anyway, this very nice experience with the SG got me thinking I got to buy one. I think I'll get a custom shop SG when I get it.. I really love the look of the one with the maestro vibrato. I was wondering how it affects the sound compared to the normal stop tailpiece? Is there a noticeable difference in tone, feel or sustain? Thanks, any input is appreciated!
