Been playing this all evening and just remembered it has coil taps... Fancy push button ones.


I never realised this the WHOLE DAMN TIME I HAD ONE!! I was about 15 at the time tho. I also think I traded it away for some piece of shit that looked lore like a "real Les Paul" Rolling Eyes so I didn't have much of a clue at all.

Great guitar, and that blue finish is unreal! The split neck pickup on my SG1000 was such a fat single coil sound, putting me in Nile Rogers territory (minus the chops) at the push of the volume button, so much so that I loved it more than the two coils in series.

And it's bizarre how DiMarzio owns your ass double cream humbuckers invariably make me think of long feathered hair, bushy 1970s mustaches and ugly jumpsuits. And Phil Lynott. They really shouldn't.

Back of the neck to the front of the fretboard - squint through a shatterproof ruler is my preferred method.

I'm supposed to not be thinking about buying any new gear for sometime but this has upped my GAS for a Yamaha SG which has laid dormant for a couple of years now. That is one sexy guitar

Been playing this pretty much solidly since I got it, and absolutely love the pickups - a couple of things I noticed... The pots are 300k not the usual 250 or 500, and they seem to be no load when up full (@ 10) you can hear them cut in when you turn down to 9.

Gibson have used 300k [linear] for tone controls most of the time. I'm not sure when it started or when it stopped and there's the odd exception in a model of guitar here and there, but '70s/'80s/'90s/'00s LP/SG/ES guitars with the 4-control scheme all had 'em for sure. Also the build tolerance of bulk purchase 250k pots does have most of them reading at close to 300 most of the time. I find they tend to measure over 250 more often than under.

There you go, I've always used 250 or 500, never used 300's.
