There’s none on Reverb... past sales have been either $1500ish all the way up to $3000. I picked one up in trade that’s definitely on the lower end of the price range. It’s well worn aesthetically yet there’s very minimal fret wear... it’s rather odd. Ones you see this played usually have pretty worn frets.. it’s almost relic’d lmao.. anyhow. I’m gonna be selling of since I figured this would be easier to sell than what I had. It’s black too so it’s flaws will standout more so than other colors.. they must not be very common since I’ve never seen one in person before this and there wasn’t many sold listings on the Floyd model..

No headstock breaks or cracks.. or any real fretwear but it’s been roadworn body wise.. previous owners sweat must of been on the acidic side to wear the hardware as it has been... I’ll be looking for a quick but fair sale.. thoughts and suggestions are welcome. I really like SGs but not a Floyd equipped, 24 fret, and I’m not really crazy about the carved top..

That configuration really makes sense to me. It's not what I need or want in a guitar, but for lots of players, that combination has both features and look that really go together. Unlike SGs with Bigsbys. Unlike cherry ones with the added hardware. I'm curious to know if the SG neck joint can handle hard trem action without detuning. One rason why I'll never add a trem to mine is that I can just swing the guitar and get a Bigsby wobble. Fortunately, mine holds tuning brilliantly.

I own a silver diablo and love it for its uniqueness. Just watched one sell on Reverb with both strap buttons relocated and aftermarket pickups but appeared to be in great conditiin.
It was listed at 1100 and an offer was made for the sale.

I was tempted but another silver one would be one too many. Now a figured top version would be sweet...
