Any tips on how to best identify it as authentic ?
My friend has a deep wine red/cherry SG. on loan to me. He says it was a 1989 reissue of a 1961
Quarantined and stir-crazy.
PS : remove you avatar, it's a Gibson SG not an "awesome" Epiclone ... LOL
A bought an Epi G400 and I sold it very quickly.
The Epiphone looks like the SG, no more.
Poor wood, poor tuners, poor nut job, strings are too high, poor pickups, poor switch, poor potentiometers .....
The design is very bad too, look at the horns and bevel .
I bought a used Gibson SG Special (£400), this SG is fantastic, a real Gibson.
Are you born like this or you had a stroller accident when you were a kid?
Happy to be here!! :D

The first cheap thing to do it to take a pencil and put it inside each cut of the nut to see if that helps keep it in tune nothing to lose there...or maybe the nut is to high or going back. And of couse whats goin on with your tuners.. slipping maybe.. make sure your bridge is set, saddles, intonation. how old are the strings? Time to change them? Youll figure it out...
my sg has has dot inlays, and shows all wood down by the bigsby thats the only difference I see. Great looking sg. I cant find one I dont like.
Love the youtube on Marys White Les Paul 3 p/u when her Nephew comes in to sell it to the pawn shop.
When I saw it in the store I was in love...had to have it. It was gorgeous, but mean looking, how could Les not love it? lol
Love to set it up. Plays like a dream.
Theres my other fav. but its hard for me to not like a guitar.
Got my sg deluxe in 8/74, bigsby bar, 2 blk p/u. Still with me.
Love this SG its so comfortable to play but goes out of tune easily.
