Please Do Not Confuse
These Guitars With A Gibson SG !!!
Even the older ones that had a similar style. These guitars
are a different scale, 24 frets instead of 22, The necks are built through
the guitar, They are not glued on.
The electronics are different, the bridge is a Tone
Pros and the neck radius is totally different. You can adjust the strings
lower and they sound fatter than anything that remotely looks like them.
The body which resembles the SG is actually quite different, It's longer &
balances far better. Also the breakage & tuning problems associated with
Gibson headstocks and unstable Gibson set necks are non existent.
Every effort has been made to improve on this
traditional design and in 2007 we have rebalanced the guitar and changed
some of the angles ever so slightly to better facilitate balancing and

The Spoon & The String
For all of you who frequent restaurants and
understand the need for the service to be faster, this short story
is a timeless lesson on how corporate consultants can make a
difference to a large organization.
Last week, we took some friends out to a new restaurant and noticed
that the waiter who took our order carried a spoon in his shirt
It seemed a little strange. When another waiter brought our water, I
noticed he also had a spoon in his shirt pocket. Then I looked
around and saw that all the staff had spoons in their pockets.
When the waiter came back to serve our soup I asked, "Why the
"Well," he explained, "the restaurant's new corporate owners hired a
consulting firm to revamp all our processes. After several months of
analysis, they concluded that the spoon was the most frequently
dropped utensil. It represents a drop frequency of approximately 3
spoons per table per hour. If our personnel are better prepared, we
can reduce the number of trips back to the kitchen and save 15
man-hours per shift." That's approximately $250.00 per
As luck would have it, I dropped my spoon and he was able to replace
it with his spare. "I'll get another spoon next time I go to the
kitchen, instead of making an extra trip to get it right now."
I was impressed. I also noticed that there was a string hanging out
of the waiter's fly. Looking around, I noticed that all the waiters
had the same string hanging from their flies. So before he walked
off, I asked the waiter, "Excuse me, but can you tell me why you
have that string right there?"
"Oh, certainly!" Then he lowered his voice. "Not everyone is so
observant. That consulting firm I mentioned also found out that we
can save time in the restroom. By tying this string to the tip of
'you know what', we can pull it out without touching it and
eliminate the need to wash our hands, shortening the time spent in
the restroom by 76.39 percent."
I asked "After you get it out, how do you put it back?"
"Well," he whispered, "I don't know about the others, but I use the
