    I will be building humbuckers,too, so needed something to test and demo them in. I haven't actually owned a humbucker guitar in years, so grabbed something inexpensive that'll do the job. It's actually a pretty nice guitar, especially for the price.
    And I now get to write it off as a business expense,as that was my primary reason for buying it.:D

    HNGD!! SG's are awesome!! I owned an Epi SG-400 Pro and it played great. I sold it to help fund my Bassbreaker 15 but I know I still NEED another SG. :thumb:

    Enjoy!!

    I intend to! Just because it's for business doesn't mean I can't enjoy it as well.:)

    Put my preferred brand of 12s on it, set the action and intonation, and it plays great!
    It's got a stacked tone pot that is also a kill switch.

    I've never been a huge Gibson style fan, but always figured an SG would be my preference out of any of them. So that's what drew me to this one, especially at that price.

    HNGD !!!

    I've got the black equivalent of the same model, & bought for near-on the same reasons. I thought at this price, it would make a great test-mule for pick-ups etc, but I'm really impressed with the AlNiCo-8's that came with the guitar. They have a very agreeable dark,warm, & full sound, that's surprisingly quite mellow, & easy-on-the-ears.

    For me, there's no need at all to change-out the pick-ups, as they compliment the Stratocasters chrystal-clear & pure tones really well IMO. I didn't expect this, & was 1/2 thinking some "Pearly Gates" as a Christmas present for it, but no need.

    These are seriously great guitars to play, worth at least double the outlay IMO.

    Enjoy, & good-luck with the windings !

    Yeah, I've been playing around, just to get a feel for how it sounds now and it sounds fantastic. If it were meant for gigging,and I was still doing such, I'd have no problem hitting the stage with it, just like it is!

    Just have to keep it away from ceiling fans!:D

    Well, it got an upgrade.
    A Graphtech Black TUSQ XL, to replace the plastic nut.

    It may be a sign to get one myself. The more I see the more I like.

    Congrats!
