Gibson SG neck reset

Removing and refitting the neck

At some point the bridge had had 2mm removed from the saddles and also 2mm from the birdge base in an attempt to make the guitar playable. It was obvious to the current owner that some corrective work was necessary.

We carefully removed the neck and recut the tenon to create a 1.25 degree angle. We also lowered the neck to be flush with the back of the body. The neck was aligned, checked and re-glued.

Reassembly and paint

The area was touched in with a gradated dark red tint. The result means a new bridge could be fitted and is at a good height to provibe a useful break angle from the trem/tailpiece. It is now set up to play low and fast and feels like an SG should with the neck angled back.....

A permanent cure and a very happy owner!
