Hey Guys, I picked up a mid '65 SG Special (with OSC) on ebay for what I thought was a pretty good deal--I paid $2300 + shipping. The seller said she was the original owner and said that the guitar had been stored most of it's life (played for 2 years in the late 60's by her, then played for 3 years in the 90's by her son). Needless to say, I thought I was in store for an amazing deal on a "closet Queen". Based on the look of the finish and condition of the frets, I would imagine that what she said about the amount of play time the guitar got is true. I say it's a "mid '65" because, from what I've read on here, that's what the neck joint looks like; it's got the smaller 1 9/16" nut and a mix of nickel and crome hardware. Now, onto my issue. She said that there was a small crack in the finish by the neck, but that it was in the finish only and not through the wood. Her pictures were blurry, and my gut said that the neck joint would have some issues, but I figured that even if I parted it out, I could still recoup $2300. I got the guitar today and, of course, the crack is more the a simple blemish in the finish. The high e and back side of the joint is perfect, but the low E side has a pretty sizeable crack. I've played it for a couple hours, and it doesn't go out of tune or anything. What do you guys think? Should I have some Hide Glue injected in there? Is the guitar still worth what I paid for it at least? Should I try to return it or get some money back? Here are a few pics to better explain the issue (I took these, not her. Pics in the add were much less detailed. She actually didn't even mention the crack in the ebay ad, but did mentoin it in an email prior to my purchase): I really do love how it plays. The smaller nut is great as I have small fingers and hands. It feels a lot better to me than the 1 11/16" nut on my VOS SG Special. Plus, I really like the look of the Epi style Vibrola, which I've only seen on a few others here and there. I'd rather not get rid of it, so I'm hoping the issue can be fixed without much pain and suffering. I certainly am not going to pay the $4000-$6000 for one in perfect condiiton, so is this about the best I can expect anyway for the price? From what I can tell, and as was described by the seller, all parts are original. Thanks for your help.
