    Being a long time Les Paul guitar owner, I've been wanting to try something else. AC/DC being one of my favorite bands, I thought I'd give an SG a try. :hmm:

    While searching online for both modern and vintage SGs, I ended up admiring this all-original (except for 3 saddles), no-issues 1962 Gibson SG/LP on RumbleSeatMusic.com! The asking price seemed reasonable, and after several back-and-forth emails with the fine folks at Rumble Seat Music, I pulled the trigger! :shock:

    This beautiful guitar arrived the next morning. After a quick inspection, I plugged her into my Fender Blues Jr tweed amp, and WOW -- I was totally blown away! The tone on this beauty is warm, crisp sharp and woody, and has great sustain. Sweet! :drool:

    congratulations Alex,
    that is an absolute beauty and hopefully not as expensive as the Pawn Stars vintage SG that sold last month on Ebay

    Congrats Alex...welcome to the club.
    I never understood why people more people don't appreciate the early '60's LP's...(notice I didn't call it an SG).
    They are surprisingly resonant, super light, and the PAF's offer great tone, and snob-appeal.

    Wow!

    I was looking at these the other day, there's a few 64 SGs with the standard vibrola for decent prices (I still can't afford one though!)

    Congrats, they look great side-by-side

    Congrats I used to own that one it is a great sounding SG. I let it go as a part of a trade into a high dollar guitar. I know you'll enjoy it and good luck.

    That's incredible looking. A real nice piece.
    If you have an extra $1100 hanging around maybe you should just go buy an SG standard and keep that original in a display case for admiration purposes only.
    I seriously wouldn't even want fingerprints on that '62.
    Unbelievable condition.

    Very cool!!! I have an '01 R8 and a 64 SG standard and love both. They really sound differently and both are beautiful. I do love how I can get to all of the frets on the SG.
