Congratulations! Beautiful guitar!
Happy NGD to you! :acoustic:
I picked up a 000-18 back in March, and it quickly became one of my favorites.
Btw, I am curious if those ebony pins changed the the tone, if any? Love to hear your opinion on those. ;)
I can vouch for the Yamaha LL16. Engelmann Spruce A.R.E. top and solid Roswood back and sides. Ebony fretboard and saddle. Plays and sounds as good as guitars costing twice as much. Yamaha has been around a long time and knows how to build an acoustic. It’s my choice for import acoustics...
Nice SG! :)
Yeah it'd be nice to bring it back to original, but unless I could find or acquire original Gibson made parts for it, I wouldn't bother with it. Using aftermarket parts (or custom making them), to make it look original is just cheesy to me and my way of thinking.
To bad folks...
Again, there is no "Gibson SG Standard '61 Reissue". It's just a "SG Standard '61". Gibson was very careful as to not use the word "Reissue" or "RI" anywhere in labeling, marketing, or advertising this model. There is a reason for that. ;)
