are the pickups mounted on pickguard? or do they have a ring around them? set neck or bolt on?

no pickguard... the easiest difference is between the pickguards... but it was taken off

I believe it's a G-400 Deluxe guitar

They have Gibson on the truss cover.

Is there any black people on UG?
I don't think a lot of black people play guitar anymore.

well if the pickups are mounted on the pickguard and theres no pickguard then the pickups will be laying out there. and you can tell via there finish, neck joint, routed cavity
#10
Yeah, the deluxe versions do only g400 from what I've seen

although,

I despise SG's.
Everyone botts them loads

Quote by SG thrasher
It sounds like sg special, 70 bucks? or 70 quid? . If there is no pickguard and no holes its a special, the G-310 pickups are mounted on the p/g so its not a 310.


he said the owner REMOVED the pickguard, so that means its a g-400!

To me, it looks like a regular G400. No fretboard binding and a one sided pickguard, and the control layout's the same too.
A dwarf might hear you. What then?
