Great guitar for the money, got it new for $250 after using a coupon.
After playing it i liked it a lot, great slim neck, perfect action and body size.
This thing plays and sounds phenomenal. I really like it.

I bought this guitar a couple of months ago and I am really happy with it, to the point that I sold my SG Standard 24.
I wanted to change a few things, mainly cosmetic. (I even consider refinishing it )
Headstock logo overlay and star inlay.
The logo was a freaking pain and...
Bought one of those body/neck projects at a decent price.
The point was to use a bunch of parts I already had like pickups, knobs pots, etc.
This guitar will have all nickel hardware.

I scored this pickup for $20 locally, the guy was selling several pickups and he didn't know what exact model this is. I took a chance since the pickup did have a DC reading.
Brought it home and D.C. reading is 8.35kohms
Most likely a Classic 57 plus? Looks like the cover has never been...
Question for everybody, when you install pickups do you cut the lead wire length to fit the guitar or do you leave the entire length and stuff it in the guitar.
I understand cutting the lead wire to 3" would hurt the resale value of a pickup but some seem to be all too concerned about the...
In case anybody is curious and has not been posted around here.
I am working on a project and swapped the chrome cover for a nickel cover on one of these pickups. First time taking a mini apart, when I cut the solder and opened the pickup I really did not think I was going to be able to do it...
Has anybody sanded down the thickness of the nitro finish on a Gibson, then re-polished and buff?
I am not talking about stripping a guitar but simply wet sanding to thin the finish.
What would be the starting point for sanding paper grade?
I have a Gibson Firebird Tribute that I love, bought it second hand at an exceptional price so I cannot claim warranty from Gibson.
I noticed a buzz on the high E string and thought it was the nut or the first fret was high, I lighlty tapped the fret with a dead blow hammer and heard a "clap"...
Looking for an authentic Gibson mini humbucker ring in black, like the ones used in the recent run of 70's tribute guitars.
There are a bunch of aftermarket options but they all seem to have slightly different dimensions and I don't want to take the risk.
I contacted Gibson here in...
Hi all, I am in the process of refinishing a V with Reranch products, I thought I was done, I gave the guitar a polishing by hand using virtuoso but noticed some imperfections that require a little more clear.
Will naphtha remove the polish so I can spray the guitar?
Hi all, I recently bought a Gibson Flying V for a very good price. It is a 2004 faded in the '67 styling. The guitar has been around the block a few times and has a lot of dings and buckle rash.
I am refinishing this guitar in Fender Copper Metallic ('55 Corvette color). I already stripped...
I recently picked up a 2004 worn cherry Gibson Flying V for a mere $400 including original gig bag. This thing has been around the block a few times but the neck is in good shape with little fret wear and to my surprise it does have an Ebony fingerboard.
I have several other Gibsons and an...
I had the neck on my Les Paul R8 shaved and refinished some time ago but the clear on the neck is a lot thinner than the rest of the finish on the rest of the guitar.
What brand, nitro or lacquer can I use to overspray the neck?
I was recommended Max 2k but I have heard about...
Hi guys, does anyone know a good luthier that does only work in Nashville?
To this day it bothers me that Gibson did not add a 24th fret inlay on the 50th anniversary SG. Looks unfinished to me.
I would appreciate any recommendations.
What did I just buy?
Browsing at the store I spotted this cab, small-ish 1x12, closed back, seems either 60's or 70's, the badge "Crown" could be original or added since the screws do not look original and actually splintered the wood on the inside.
8ohm speaker, is this alnico? seems like...
I scored a can of Reranch Inca Silver for a low price locally and plan to use it on my beloved Squier 51 beater.
My question is, the recommended primer color is white, while I have a can of white primer I'd like to know what would happen if I simply apply the Inca Silver over the current...
I have this one on eBay and Craigslist.
Would sell for $550 outside eBay and using PayPal check or gift option. Including shipping to the 48 States.
Check it out and if you have any questions let me know.
