I picked up a used Gibson SG about three months ago after not playing guitar for a long time, and though I really truly dig it, I noticed soon after I got it that it has what's called the "wraparound bridge", with no apparent means to adjust the intonation, just a straight slab of metal. As far as I can tell, it's not really an issue, but seeing as how 99.9% of all other guitars can be intonated, I'm curious why this was made like this, and are there any inherent advantages to this bridge that I'm unaware of. My inquiring mind wants to know.
