Guitar Geek.

I've had this Gibson SG for nine years now, and it's a wonderful guitar, lightweight and versatile. It can go from jazz tones straight through chimey jangle and on into the crunch of heavier rock with ease.

I recently had occasion to do some regular maintenance on it, and while I was doing so, I lowered the neck pickup's height so that it had the same apparent output as the bridge pickup (the neck had always been a bit louder). This cleaned up the tone of the neck pup, and it now has an even more pleasing clarity than ever before.

I'll be playing this guitar at Mocha Maya's on Sunday, along with my parlor acoustic, if you'd like to hear what it sounds like.
