NGD gibson sg standard

good evening just got this lovely SG standard after waiting for a week to arrive

i had a serious gas for sgs (thanks a lot tony iommi )

i was thinking about getting an epipthone g-400 im sure my thread is still here somewhere

but decided to save for a gibson
so searched ebay every day for two weeks ( until i get my money and transfer to my bank account) so hmmmm what to get a heritage cherry or alpine white lets go with the white one (1200$)

but wait there is a new listed item interesting fireburst color and its 980$ so i bought it

That TRC! Why would they DO that?

Congrats on a nice-looking new guitar.

I can't do SGs; my xxl hands don't like the recurved horns, and all of the ones that I've sort of liked have been neck-heavy. I'll be interested to know if the MinETune makes that worse.

I finally got something sorta close -- an old original L6S. Same body thickness, same body "bevels", 24-fret neck with everything clear, a really wide cutaway (the guitar looks like "Les Paul Roadkill").

I like your color, though. Out of the ordinary, but still classic looking.

I had a Gibson with a gizmo on it (from the factory!) that predates the Robot/MinETune. Back in the early '90's, Gibson sold a "TransPerformance" model (they had Jimmy Page pushing them) that had about half the body of a Les Paul routed out to accommodate a bunch of electronics and a bridge that had motors in it to change the string tension, just like the MinETune. You could do alternate tunings on it as well.

What I learned was that I didn't mind having a gizmo that tuned my guitar for me, but the whole alternate tunings thing didn't work all that well (limited in range, some strings ended up floppy, some became cheese cutters). I eventually found alternate tuning nirvana (see what I did there?) with a Variax.

thanks man
when i hold for the first it was a little weird to get all that access horns

i was reading about the TransPerformance self tuning guitar on another site it looks complicated

for me im using the sg for ( standard/Eb/ and C#)

so i hope restringing it is easy

I just grabbed an SG Standard myself, and I HATE that it sounds so good. I know it sounds a little snobby, but my other guitars are just so "eh" compared to it. I think I just REALLY love the 57's in it. I also find the mini tune to be very helpful. Even with the quirks, it really helps in a live setting. The only thing is tuning it manually is surprisingly different from a normal guitar, you'll see what I mean!
