• Guys, we've spent considerable money converting the Les Paul Forum to this new XenForo platform, and we have ongoing monthly operating expenses. THE "DONATIONS" TAB IS NOW WORKING, AND WE WOULD APPRECIATE ANY DONATIONS YOU CAN MAKE TO KEEP THE LES PAUL FORUM GOING! Thank you!

Meet Blue. SG Time Again!

I ordered a 50's style Aluminum Wraptail and knob pointers from Philadelphia Luthier. Excellent quality USA made parts.(y)
Wasn't digging the Zinc Lightning Bolt. Uneven string heights at the bridge and it didn't yield good intonation.
My SG Junior came stock with the 50's type Aluminum, and I got that one intonated quite well.
So, I wanted one on Blue.
Intonated well, even string height at the bridge and a bit more added chime and jangle from the Aluminum.

Me, I've gotta have pointers on my Gibsons. 😎

BTW, Blue went from 6 Lbs. 9.9 oz. to 6 Lbs. 8.5 oz from the bridge swap. 6 Lbs. 8.7 oz with the pointers added. lol 🎸

I love it. Got mine just over a week ago. Definitely a keeper. It’s so light, and those P90s—aren’t they amazing?
