    Here it is, its a keeper, a 2013 Gibson SG Standard. I just rewired it back to stock and oiled the fretboard, put new strings on it and gave it a setup. Its really cool :yesway:

    I like it. I don't usually go for black guitars, but on an SG it looks right (or in your case, left:)).

    Congrats! I prefer the smaller pickguard like this and trapezoid inlays are always classy. Enjoy!

    It's a fake. The put the knobs, switch, & pick guard on the wrong sides.

    I always thought if I got a Standard I'd go for the classic cherry but no the black grew on me over the last couple years to the point I had to have one!

    I agree, it is so light weight and so big sounding, it has a pair of 57 Classic pickups, the dude had an Emerson 50's wire harness with 500K audio pots and bumblebee caps, I'm really happy he still had the original harness and sent it with the guitar at my request, it has 300k linear volume and 500k audio tone and some tiny microscopic caps I cant even read the numbers on them, this stock harness sounds perfect the Emerson was all wrong!

    I'm in agreement about the colour and the inlays. Looks really good.
    Happy NGD!
    Maybe you should get a bigger pick ? :lol:

    OP...I have the same guitar 2 years older non southpaw. Of my 6 Gibsons it's my most played. Good size neck on it. Came with a PC board/300k pots. That lasted 1 week. I went with a toneman harness and put a A2 mag in the 498 and ripped out the 490 and put in a Phat Cat P90 in the neck with A5 mags...smooth for Allman Bro type leads. Does your SG have a rosewood board? Late '11-12 they were using Richlite due to the federal raid. Not sure if that rolled into
    `13. I have 57's in my other SG and they are my favorite Gibby pup in a SG.

    Yes. Those are the hot ceramic pickups out of my 2001 Classic Plus. 50's wired with orange drops and 525k CTS audio taper pots. It's my angry Gibson.

    Indian rosewood. My other SG has a 57 Classic Plus in the bridge thats my favorite pickup but this 57 Classic in the new SG bridge sounds pretty damn good, its staying for now.

    Here's an SG resource:
