hey, so i have this epiphone g-400 which i got a while back, and i love it like crazy, but its head/neck is heavier than its body, so every time i let go, like when gigging, and fooling around, it drops to the ground. sometimes, it even goes out of tune after coz it hits the pegs
any suggestions??
cheers

This is the case with nearly all SGs and SG style guitars. They're all neck-heavy and you can't really do much about it except ignoring it. Oh and not letting go and letting it hit the ground.

However they're excellent in situations like these.

Maybe high quality leather strap, and locking strap button would help a little bit?

relocate the strap button to the upper horn, or neck heal.
You can use some Duct tape to hold your strap in diff places, untill you can find the balance point on your specific guitar.

The only way to get an SG to balance properly is to move the forward strap button/lock to the tip of the top cutaway/horn and to use a fairly wide strap. Even then, you're goign to have most of the guitar's weight pressing on one shoulder. SGs were not designed for comfort.

No.


Well, technically it could be done, but only in the same way that you could change a cat into a hamburger. It's an unpleasant process, and nobody is happy with the result.
