The Regal II from Victoria Amplifiers is an amp that stands in a class of its own. The Regal II has a 15 inch Eminence Legend speaker that produces a wide rage of tones, from thunderous lows, to pleasantly chimey highs. The Regal II also gives you the ability to switch out and mix and match tubes to get a gritty or custom sound that is difficult for another to match, and the fact that you can switch your tubes without rebiasing is an amazing feature. The top of the line design of the Regal II gives you tweed sponginess, coupled with overtones and touch sensitivity that will be sure to satisfy any style of guitar playing. You can use one 6V6 for 5 watts of output or go to the full 35 watts with two EL-34's. Along with the feature of switching tubes, this amplifier comes with a reverb and tremelo pedal, that gives you an amazingly vintage sound. This is a fantastic amp for small gigs and recording. You can get nice warm jazz tones as well as great classic rock and blues tones. Go to SoundPure.com and check out all of our audio clips featuring the Regal II from Victoria, as well as the entire line of Victoria Amplifiers that we offer. Give us a call here at Sound Pure if you have any questions that we can help you with.

What we think:

3rd times a charm!  This aged Gibson SG has the best fretwork out of any SG we've had in stock after Nash got their hands on 'em!  True vintage SG tone, looks and playability.

The SG aging division, in assocation with the Les Paul Aging Division, has truly taken off and we are proud to be a premiere Nash Aged Gibson Dealer. Be one of the very first guitarists to own a certified Nash Aged SG! Serial Number 4!

The Aged SG's may not be produced in the same quantities as the Les Pauls.  As of now, we only know of 5 in existence (that are certified by nash).  These have become much more rare than we thought they would be! Collectors item? Maybe. But much more for true SG enthusiasts looking to unleash the true potential of this classic Gibson design.

This Guitars Origin

This guitar is a NEW Gibson SG 61 re-issue that we sent to Nash for the full vintage overhaul process. 

Call or Email Sound Pure and we will go over every detail

Description:

The SG division is so new, they don't have a story to post here just yet!  Please read the Aged Les Paul description (posted below) for an in-depth overview of the vintage overhaul process! SG description coming soon!

These are real Gibson guitars that I purchase with the intention of doing a complete make over. There are a few models that make good candidates for this, depending on the final color (plain, flame or gold top). The faded standards, the classic standards and classic plus standards are all possibilities as a staring piece as long as they are in NOS condition when they land.

First step is to completely disassemble and separate the parts that will be aged and re-used, from the parts that we reject and replace. The “keeper” parts are then aged.

The finish, which is sometimes rather thick, is stripped off down to the bare wood. At this point some get stains applied, if required to get the desired color. Then the guitar gets re-finished in 100% nitrocellulose lacquer, keeping it as thin as possible to enable superior resonance. We do a variety of takes on the lemon, cherry, faded, un-burst, plain and gold top looks.

After curing, the guitar gets the complete aging treatment and is then frets are re-worked and dressed to our specs, then we are ready for re-assembly.

The pickups are replaced with what many of you may balk at as there are so many opinions about Les Paul pickups and tone out there. As always, I simply build a guitar that I would use and leave it at that. So, in my arsenal of personal guitars, my favorite and most versatile LP setup is using a DiMarzio Bluesbucker in the Neck and a DiMarzio Air Norton in the Bridge.

We re-wire the guitar so the pickups breathe better as well as use the neck pickup’s tone control as a coil tap for the Bluesbucker, which gives you an amazing strat-like sound from that pickup. Between 1 and 8 on the tone knob it works as a regular tone control, between 9 and 10 it shuts off the second/dummy coil. This gives you a tap without adding switches of push pull pots.

The Air Norton give you bigger output and rich harmonics without going over the top into the tone spectrum of faceless, modern, high output sound that so many specialized humbuckers are susceptible to. These pickups have a lower string pull and a much higher sensitivity to your dynamics and playing style.

If you care for more info on the pickup selection, setup etc., read on……

My problem with stock Les Pauls is that the pickups never seem truly matched to each other or the position that they inhabit. The neck pickup will sound too fat and lack clarity and character. The bridge will often sound harsh or weak. The middle position (both pickups together) has an incredible potential for sparkle and quack, but no stock Les Paul, I have had, other than an actual ‘59 burst had this. I always looked for a paul that could actually use the neck pickup for rhythm, but if I set my amps for that, then the bridge pickup sounded harsh and weak. If setting the amp for a smooth, but well driven sound from the bridge, then your neck pickup is overly thick and un-clear. Does this sound familiar?

Also, as many of you may have figured out, the method Gibson uses for wiring the pots is not optimum. The tendency towards the guitar getting muddy or sounding choked when anywhere but “10“. This gets re-worked when we re-wire.

Gibson installs frets on the fretboard prior to it getting glued to the neck and body. Maybe they do it as it is easier to do it that way, but it can really lead to all sort of fret issues (buzzing, fret outs, high action, dead spots etc). What happens is the neck and body glue, moisture, and all of the underlying structure will shrink, expand and or settle. The fretboard (and frets) will now adjust itself to the changes and you and up with “lumpy gravy”. The most noticeable and common issue is the hump at about the 14th fret, right where the neck gets really thick before it hit’s the body. So what we do is now re-work the neck and frets and take care of this to give the player better action, playability, sustain, bending etc.
