I've been wanting to do a custom SG style guitar for a while. And i've read some pretty rave reviews about PGK's stuff.

I was looking at some amazing builds on their site and looking at options for their SGjr kit. The first picture looks right.

Then I see this totally horrendous looking SG shape in the other pictures.

I've tried emailing them but can't get a response. Do you all see what I'm talking about or know anything about this

Yep^^^. Pretty sure they got a C&D and had to change shapes. That's what I read in multiple places on the ole interwebs. And we know that everything you read on the ole interwebs is true. They're pretty ugly now, unfortunately.

Looks like they should be getting a C&D from Fender/Guild/De Armond now.

At first I looked at it and was like ....that's not all that bad... then I looked at the second picture.
Kinda like the nasty SG shape Warmoth offers

Curious, is it possible that if you super impose a template of an original SG over the Precision Kit SG style, the Precision SG kit is slightly larger than the Gibson SG so you actually "re-shape" the Precision SG Kit to original SG? Shocked

they should update all of their photos to show what you really get.

the flying v and explorers kits are gone too. I built a korina v from them (see profile pic) AWESOME!!!! I wanted to do an SG Jr., and possibly another Flying V.
