And “SG Sunday” rolls very easily and comfortably into “SG Monday”…  :D  It’s a holiday here in Canada (well at least it is in Ontario anyway…) so NO WORK!  What shall I do today.  I know:  GUITAR STUFF!

1968 Gibson SG Special.  You can see it has been modified…a Tune-O-Matic was added and a stop bar tailpiece (I do have the Maestro Vibrola, but I find it the guitar sounds better with a more secure tail piece!).  

In the last 44 years someone also replaced the original tuners with Grovers.  I have taken the Grovers off and slapped on a set of Allparts Kluson strip tuners.  I also have a vintage set of Klusons, and these are period-correct for this instrument, but I find they are not perfect…and they make the guitar harder to keep in tune.  The new ones function perfectly and I always have the vintage ones for if/when I sell this guitar!

Now: to find some kind of etching solution to “Relic” the new Allparts tuners (and the new “Nashville” Tune-O-Matic which I also put on to replace a VERY badly functioning ABR-1!).  I also bought a correct compensated bridge for it…so I want to get rid of the Tune-O-Matic at some point, but the original holes have been filled (the T-O-M is narrower than the original bridge), and I am not at all experienced with drilling into guitars let alone vintage exiguity!  I’ll take it to a pro…  :D

Just finished my Treble Bleed Mod on my Squier Strat Classic Vibe!

I used the Seymour Duncan spec: 100k resistor + .002uf cap (in parallel)

It sound awesome!! The guitar retain all the high frequencies even with the volume on 2! 

This is a really simple mod I suggest to everyone! Just try it!

In the next days I’ll be working on a modification for a friend of mine: swap the pickups on his strat with a set very similar to the Andy Timmons set!
I’ll post some photo of the work if i can :)

mods for my start on the way!
I’m waiting for some electric stuff to mod a little bit my Squier CV Strat, I’ll keep the original pickups (the sound really good) but will improve all other electric stuff (CTS pots, 5-way switch, …) and a new black pickguard :)
