Are you okay with the narrower (1 9/16) neck?
It is clear he feels that your guitar has value and I would be weary of these offersi've played a 70s sg with the narrower nut... felt a bit strange but nothing impossible to play.

now you guys are making me change my mind
he's back at it

No. Not "always" by a long shot. And for the guitar you are looking at, I'd say almost definitely not. There's nothing unusually special about a '68 batwing cherry SG. Personally, I like SGs more than LPs, but the Maestro is simply a deficient, failed design, and the batwing a cheaper workaround for the preferable small guard and pickup rings on earlier 60's models ('61, '62). If you really like that SG, then you're all set. It's not a deal I would consider.Is a vintage instrument always better than a modern limited edition?
I have a '67 and the nut width is... surprising.I think that SG still has the skinny narrow nut width so I wouldn’t go for it as a player. They are vintage though, people really dig Angus Young, and heck people still buy Fenders every day so maybe you won’t care about the skinny nut.
