    I posted this in another section of the forum but thought this one would be more suiting :


    So recently i've gotten the opportunity to purchase a 69/70 SG standard with the lyre vibrola. it is a faded red and the body is pretty checked but has never had a break in the neck but was once converted to left (converted back, looks like it was never converted)

    heres where it gets interesting...

    its 850 canadian dollars. (for you americans thats roughly 640 bucks)

    heres why:

    no pickups.

    is it still a steal? should i go for it and is it worth as an investment or just a players axe?

    Id take it. Just the vibrola is 400+ USD. Put a couple o T-top replicas and your set.

    I would asy its easily worth that. A steal at that.

    I myself hate the Vibrolas, and would probably mod it, and put a Pigtail Bridge on it.

    But non the less its worth $640. Even if the neck has been broken and a good fix its worth more than that.

    If you want an SG, Id be all over it.

    Id probably go for some Throbak Pre T Tops.
