I finally finished restoring this ’61 SG.  It needed a little bit of binding repair, filling of an ill advised pickup rout, and refinishing in cherry red. Oh…. and removing Ted Nugent’s signature.

Someone decided it would be nice to rout and install for a telecaster bridge pickup.

In this shot I am working on the rout repair but you can see where the the bridge angle was reduced to accommodate a more modern lightning bolt bridge.  I moved it back to the original location and patched the hole.
