Maybe i have something else he'll want. I did offer the tele first.
I think the question to ask yourself is - why would you want to own this?
Keep looking. Sinking money into a FUBAR guitar for a refret, cleaning up routes, new parts, and whatnot is a well paved road to frustration.
I know you want a vintage SG, but there ain't much vintage left on it.
Prices are dropping on clean ones, be patient.
In case anyone was curious, i passed on it thanks for the help.
You made a good choice.
** great thread fellaz
Right to the Point.
There are a LOT of really good used and old SG's around for sale right now, and as someone stated above, the new ones are really good, too. That was an interesting guitar, but really had too many things going on with it...
That thing was exciting to you in a way and I can understand it.
Mirages are exciting to!
It would have come to trying it and seeing if "the erection" happens.
But I agree that trading for a loved guitar was too much. Money can be replaced or even lost. Other money will come.
A nice well loved Tele? Tough to replace sometimes!
Karma will reward your patience!
That guitar could be an SG Melody Maker that was routed, not a Special. The headstock seems mighty narrow, and the pickup routes for sure ain't factory. Melody Makers didn't have the wings on the side of the headstock for the full open book. The binding is throwing me, though. It may have been done with the refret. Is the Gibson logo inlaid? If so it's a Special.
That guitar was never a MM for many reasons, the biggest giveaway is the control cavity.
Old thread, I know, but the pickguard reminded me of this....
Food for thought. I personally know the guitar in the pic - it's the real deal.
Here's a few pics of 2 '63s - Jr and the Alpine Special that is. The std is a '64 and the other special is a '61 reissue.
To echo 7gtop's comment a way above, great thread chaps, really informative
OUAH ... P90 orgasm ! Interesting thread indeed.
