I came across a very cool and unique guitar on Craigslist that I was planning on driving a couple hours to check out. It's a 1972 Hagstrom Swede.
Seller finally got a round to sending more (blurry) pics of the frets, which appear to have divots on all the frets and seemingly down a good portion...
Unfortunately another amazing SG popped up locally, a 2014 Gibson SG Standard ‘61 in “desert burst” I think, for 1k
Worth the 1k? I offered 900 but seller is firm at 1k. Just want some thoughts.
Maybe you can talk me out of it (or in to it).
I might go look at a cool 2012 Les Paul today. When looking at specs/reviews I noticed “grenadillo” is used on the fretboard. I’ve also read that Gibson was using layered wood for fretboards as well.
Anyone have experience with these guitars or fretboards?
Im looking to put a set of pickups in a 60s tribute SG I just purchased (as some of you already know). I’m trying to decide between a set of BB pro’s and the 61r.
Any insight on your experience with these pickups would be greatly appreciated.
I've been listening to a lot of Black Sabbath and "stoner" rock lately, as well as building fuzz pedals, so naturally now I NEED an SG!
So far I know I want pearl inlays, no robots, no mini-humbuckers and no PCBs.
What year did they start using the PCB's and did they use across all models...
