guitar mod price question

Postby nuthatchwinters » Thu Nov 02, 2017 4:06 pm

hello all. just had the works done to my gibson sg in terms of unity gain buffer, obel, super 2s and sds1 put in, routed for middle pickup, coil tapped, 5 way switch, new pick gaurd and was charged a little north of 500 bucks. just wondering what the thoughts are if that seems in the ballpark. thank you.

If they do a good job that's a bargain.

picked up guitar today and have to say they did a terrific job. the output jacks are just a little bit spaced apart but i'm not going to nitpick becaouse the sound is outstanding. highly recommend obel and unity gain buffer. absolutely great. also i read somewhere on here that sg's can present some challenges with this particular mod so over all i think they did a great job. i will post pic or video when i figure it out

I just used the used the 2nd volume pot hole for the OBEL jack so I only had to drill the bypass toggle hole. The coil taps are on the tone push pull pots.

Just curious- did the total fee include the pickups and buffer, or did you supply those?

to bigfoot. no, i didn't supply anything. just gave em my standard 70s era sg and they did the works. as has been mentioned once or twice on this forum (sarcasm) it really is the sh*t, just love it. teejay thats great work there, looks great. i was a little hesitant going foward with routing out for the middle pup but am happy i did. have you considered putting in the dimarzios?

Price seems pretty fair considering the pickups and buffer would be about half that cost retail.

Thanks. Super 2 neck, Super Dist bridge, Wald adjustable gain preamp. I was going for a 68'-71' thing.
