Prepare for awful pictures!

Also I realise I'm not a face ever seen before around these parts, but I figured this was of at least some interest to connoisseurs like yourselves!

My guitar was made at the
Nashville Plant, TN, USA
December 21st, 1998
Production Number: 72

apparently...


Hmm, seymour duncan pickup, ordinary TOM setup, nothing special to see here...


OK, that makes things a little bit more interesting, sure looks 12 years old.


And now we know what it is, roughly.


Hang on a cotton-picking minute, a micro-switch? On an SG? What could this mean?


OH, HELLO!



In all her glory!

Picked this tiger up for <£500 on eBay, one careful owner for its 12 year life, now I can carefully own it

I'm usually not into SGs...or single pickup guitars, actually. But those two things seem to work together for this guitar, so HNGD

Happy NGD! The color looks a bit too orangey for my taste, but otherwise that thing screams "BAD-ASS!!!" <:

I've been looking for an SG-X for years and years now. 2 of my favourite guitarists used them. Rory Clewlow of Enter Shikari had one the first time i saw them play live: as barely seen here

Also, Thomas Erak of the Fall of Troy used to play one because he needed 24 frets and refused to use anything other than Gibson, but couldn't (at the time) afford a DC Les Paul.

are all the bridges on SG's reversed from LPs? I never looked, if not your bridge is flipped.
check the intonation.

congrats, that's a nice SG-X.
I wondered why the frisbee was getting bigger, then it hit me.

I'm not sure on the colour, either, if anything it photographs better than it looks IRL. Beggars, choosers and all that.

You got an SG X for <£500!?

HNGD you lucky SOB

I got lucky! I missed out on one a few days earlier (2 SG-Xes on ebay within one week, what are the odds, it's taken me 5 years to find one, then 2 come along at once), then this one came along, in a much better condition, with a hardcase instead of the gigbag, new HB fitted (original supplied).

intonation is near-perfect, and the grooves on the saddles are the right depths, I had a double-take at the time when i was setting it up.

cool, it just looks like the low E would be on the whompass sharp.
it's all good though, congrats.

Holy Crapola!

that guitar is awesome!

I think my future Single pickup SG guitar choice has been made... unless i go ahead and get the 2 pickup version

Good luck finding one! I think 2 turning up at once was a glitch in the matrix, if i'm honest.

It was on mine stock. Changing it around helped intonation a bit though it wasn't too bad before.
