Michael V’s wickedly cool guitar # 2

Hi Phil,

I finally finished this up. I spent the last 4 months working on this whenever i got a free moment. Guitar looks amazing, with the exception of a few dings on the front where i dropped a tool. I’ll fix that soon but i couldn’t wait to get this baby up and running.

It is also an amazing player, and has become one of my favorites! The whole experience is very rewarding to me, this is now my fifth build, and my second Precision and it is amazing how much more i learn each time.

The wood was so nice and the quality was apparent when I first received the kit. The neck fit in perfectly, and the fret work was great. I finished this using Target waterbased laquer. I personally cant stand being around nitro and this is pretty easy on the environment. So far I have had pretty good results with this stuff.

Below are the specs. thanks and looking forward to my next build.

Body & Neck: Mahogany
Fretboard: Rosewood
• Gibson P90 Single Coil Dogear Pickup
• CTS Pots
• Emerson Oil-in-Paper capacitor

• Kluson Plate Tuners
• Wilkinson/Gotoh Adjustable Bridge/Tailpiece
• Tusq XL Nut
• Switchcraft Jack


This is made with this kit…..SG Jr.

J-M Tremblay’s Special SG Jr.

“I just finished my build today. It is awesome! It’s made out of very good quality tonewood and as your name suggests, the kit is made with precision. When I received the kit, I didn’t really know what pickup/control configuration I wanted. I decided to go with two classic PAF humbuckers, three-way switch, and single volume and tone … simple, but I have everything I need! I did the finish with oil. It keeps the texture of the wood, which I particularly like—mahogany. The pickguard is my own design. It is a mix of the classic “full-face” SG standard, “half-face” of the 61′ SG, and the pickguard of the 1998 SG deluxe. I love the look and the tone of bigsby vibratos. And this one makes no exception! This guitar looks great, plays great AND sounds amazing!

Here are some pictures of it.”

Tony’s Cherry SG Jr.

“Hey Phil,

Here are some photos of my recent build, your SG Jr. I am quite pleased with how the guitar fell together. The neck is lovely, straight and true, I have not had to adjust the neck at all. And the guitar is very light and reasonant. I’ve always loved the look of these guitars and the Heritage Cherry finish came out as I had hoped. She is a real screamer with the lollar P-90!

Thanks, Tony”
