is the neck pickup flopping out??
No. There wasn’t anything wrong with it I could tell. I didn’t plug it in, but it didn’t look like a mistreated guitar.
Stadium logo baby!
I was visiting my favorite haunt today and saw the Diablo. It looks to be in pretty good condition.

Just the neck struck me as dark. I had them in a Godin LGX. Acoustic bridge, string-thru body, "Mr. Fundamental" guitar. A F-spaced Maximus in an Alder HSS is currently BFF with a set of Duncan A2s. Another good wind for around a C-note is B&G Pickups. I have a pair of his HB sized P-90s I'm looking for a guitar for.
Hmm, I’ve sure had a 36th Anniversary in my Strat for a long time if they didn’t work in the SG. Yeah, can’t go wrong for ninety bux. I’ll pm you.
Been there, done that on the B&G pickups! I sold the ones below to Austin back in the day. You didn’t get those from him, by any chance?43 minutes ago, lang said:
I have a Gravelin Hot PAF set that I never used. Zebra uncovered though.
Thanks, I think I’m going to try JGale’s High-Order pickups. Those Gravelin’s shouldn’t last but a minute here if you put them up for sale.

@Lockbody I have a 4 conductor 490T if that interests you.
Thanks, but I’m really looking for something other than Gibson, although I wouldn’t kick a 500T out of bed.

There's these in the Marketplace. I'll look around for covers...
The bridge is my favorite hot PAF. Smooth. The neck may be a little dark. It was wound for a 24fret PRS.
I haven’t heard much about those. Let me do some reading. 9.7k is right around where I was looking. Pickups have to be pretty dark to be dark in a SG.
Thanks, but I’ve had the 498T in a couple of other SGs and they’re not for me.
I’m looking for a covered bridge pickup for one of my SGs with a little more oomph than your standard PAF-type. It currently has the stock SG-61 pickups in it, and while the neck pickup ain’t that bad at all (really!), the bridge pickup leaves a lot to be desired. SGs are funny beasts, though, because pickups that are too hot ruin the vibe.
I can PayPal, or I’ve got some mics, 6v6 tubes, etc I could trade https://bham.craigslist.org/msg/d/graysville-misc-gear-mics-midi-tubes/7565440944.html
‘Sup all? It’s been a while
I was perusing Facebook Marketplace and saw a local ad for a PA-STK1 for $100 shipped.
I tried to copy/paste the ad, but no luck. Search for “Seymour Duncan Blackouts” in marketplace. Dude is in Springville, AL.

I've been tempted, but haven't pulled the trigger.
What about the steel block? You ever tried it? I hate to mess with a good thing with the unknownium block, but I’ve thought about ordering one.
Doubtless it will be home to some new harebrained "innovation" that will disappear faster than a zoot suit SG.
Which are surprisingly in demand these days.
I have that cabinet and the 2x12 version as well and never thought to paint the grill. It looks great. Thanks for the idea! I think I might do one of mine red.
Is it painted? I had one that looked just like it that I always thought was paint, but then seeing that one makes me think some came that way.
I need a minute. Thanks.
Toss up between these two:
More pics of the Firebird.
I'm all Fender. I could really use a Firebird with a Maestro.
Ouch, not that bad when I had it. That's new.
RUT ROHH!!! WBPS#5 might have suffered a slight injury.
Tomterrific and Veatch alerted me to some paint chipping at the back of the headstock and it might be a reinjury.
Veatch can share the shot he sent me and more if he likes.
There was chipped paint on the back of the headstock when I got it from Jay. I confirmed with him that it was missing when he shipped it.
I will send half a $20 now, and the other half when the guitar arrives.
I did lolz
1979 Standard, one of the first ones Hamer made.
Set it on a stand during rehersal, walked away, tripped on the cord.
The Standard did a faceplant on the cement floor and suffered a near complete decapitation.
Serious "Oh $hit" moment.
Almost word-for-word what happened to my Vector.
Damn! Sorry to hear this. Good luck to everyone.
bob, nice job on the pretenders tune!
Thanks mang! That means a lot coming form you!
Anyhoo, after a few failures to get the next people on board to receive #5 and a small (read: major) emergency at work that kept me from being able to get it out the door last week, #5 is working its way to SC and Steve Hayne. As I told Gene more than once, I felt very lucky to be able be a part of this, had a great time playing it, but really regret not being able to meet any fellow HFC'ers face-to-face to hand it off. Such is life.
I threw a small trinket in the case to document its time in Birmingham, and challenge everyone who gets it to add something from your town so Gene has a small reminder of all the great places #5 traveled.
PSA: 1992 Diablo - $1195

Yeah, everything about that guitar seemed good. Another guy walked in after me and went straight to that guitar, too. He asked how much it was and thought the owner said $795. He started heading for the counter and reaching for his wallet, no joke!
I’d have a hard time paying that much for a Diablo. I guess I’m still stuck in the early 2000s where $1195 would get you a Cali Elite or Studio Custom.
