Since it's neck heavy when standing up, I figured I'd add weights into the back of the SG where all the wires are and glue them in there. Know of any weights I could buy somewhere?

you can also move strap buttons or get a suede strap.


to answer your question. washers (hardware store) fishing weights (sports store)

but that might not make enough difference, unless it's at the rear of the guitar.

i would just get a suede strap that is thicker to better distribute the weight of the guitar.

The neck only drops because of the position of the strap locks, move them and it'll be fine.

theres also lead tape you can try. it should be found in sporting goods stores as it seems to be mostly used for changing the weight distribution on things like tennis raquets. i havent ever tried it, but it seems like it would do the job well.

if you wanting to use little room and a good amount of weight get some tungsten...you can get from like 5hp brigg retailers they use it to add weight to the crank legend...

Just move the strap button farther up the horn.

i got a flying v that the neck dives on and wat do you mean by moving the strap button the metal stud on the guitar????
#12
the best placement always depends on the guitar. but in general, the farther away, the 2 pegs are, the better the balance.

sometimes moving the peg at the ass end, lower, works well.

but with bolt on guitars, yes, i've seen guys us the neck bolt at the plate as the screw to hold the strap button. sometimes a peg at the heel can cause the guitar to fall away from the player. i moved the peg on my lp to the back heel, works ok.

I hate the description of the SG has neck heavy. It's not neck heavy as much as its just piss poor placement of the neck strap button. Its positioned as a perfect pivot point for the guitar neck to just dive. Leather straps help keep the neck from rotating, but in general Ive just gotten used to guiding the neck while I play, and in fact it makes for some interesting styles where its pretty easy to move the neck all around while standing. Weights? Interesting.
#14
Yeah because putting weights where wires that connect your pick ups to your guitar is an excellent idea. It would tear or break any little wires or anything.
