I can only imagine how awesome it sounds - but in any case: congratulations on a great job reviving the spirit of an iconic (and for me the sexiest) guitar design I have become aware of! I love your work (and the SG2/SG3). I like the way you modified the design of the Jag PUps...

My SG3 I bought from theworkoffire is coral red which I liked best - But your sunburst is a serious challenger! While I usually find a regular sunburst or black body/white guard a bit boring, I like that sunsetburst/eclipseburst of yours... Combined with the shape, It's a bit of a Batman version of the Bruce Wayne sunburst... You might have created some great new style here !

That looks gooooood! I like the burst with a bit more black around it than some. Cool, cool, cool.

That does look nice!

Post your TT video reveal of it. First picture near the top of the post with the Alice In Wonderland checkerboard tile floor I knew where the thread was headed ;)

Do you have pictures of the underside and workings of the original trems? In the video you mentioned needle bearings.

I don't have any pics of an original trem. I misspoke in the video - it has cartridge ball bearings. Don't know why I said needle bearings.

This floor? :D

It's such a better looking guitar than the Jaguar/Jazzmaster. So elegant!

That turned out really fantastic. I'm seriously jealous, a Yamaha SG2/3 is on my short list of guitar needs.
