Nice, i have an 2016 Gibson Custom shop SG Standard Historic, that i just installed Graphtech saddles on, to give the guitar more of a vintage correct look, as it has the Maestro vibrato, and small pickguard, so its basically 1963-1965 specced.yes ..seemed to enhance a little more warmth and sustain …cosmetically they look wonderful installed ..I have them in the original chrome bridge on my 69 Sg as well as on my 2kr9 original abr ( retaining wire version )
These MOD collection NPB saddles are so far on my2018 R0, and going to buy a set for my 2019 R9, i also have Vintage correct Absolute Vintage Collection nickel plated brass ABR-1 adjustment wheels on all 3 Historics, with a Domed set on my SG,
Coming from Les pauls, it took me a little while to figure out my SG, as a whole.It was strange ..using the same string guage on it, with the action set to Gibson specs 2MM Bass side 1.6MM treble side.The action felt really stiff, and it seemed like strings didnt want to ring out lively ....the notes kind of sounded “Muffled”....
Then i lowerd the action , alot to basically 1MM Bass side and 1MM treble side and the guitar completely came alive, ??? Ive talked to some other SG owners that said that the SG is its own animal, and that the SG does require or perform better with lower action? What do you think?
What i found is that on paper, the action is lower than my other guitars, but feeling wise, it feels like the strings are just as high, on the SG as my Les pauls.
