    I couldn't resist this '64 SG Junior when I saw it pop up on Reverb. It's clearly a player and I'm absolutely loving it. I'm not particularly neck shape-sensitive, but this one's really great in terms of the thickness. No structural issues, but it's got lots of blemishes, including the holes from where someone had a B5 on it at some point.

    It's obviously also missing the vibrola and was listed as such, so I just assumed that the previous owner didn't have it. I pretty much immediately went on the hunt to try and find one at a reasonable price (that's the trick) and a few days later saw one that had been removed from a '64 SG. Turns out it was the same guy. :eek: I guess I should have just asked outright if he had it. I put in an offer and he actually countered with less since I had the actual guitar. It should be here tomorrow; however, I really like the setup with the wraparound, so it might be not much more than a cover for three of those holes in the top. It weighs a whopping 5 lbs, 11 oz without it, so I'm not worried about the extra weight. :D

    Anyway, here are the goods...

    VERY nice!!

    Man, I miss the days when those were 200-300 bucks..hell even $600, then even $999ish..

    I remember seeing one in a GOLF BAG in a pawnshop, in Norfolk VA, 1996, for 200 bucks...

    Congrats, seriously beautiful guitar.

    That is the spitting image of mine, right down to the cracks around the output jack and the indents from the replaced tuners.

    I hope you have as much fun on yours as I do with mine!
