Greetings, People of the Horns. I am interested to hear any of your opinions and observations about this guitar: http://www.ebay.com/itm/1974-Gibson...e=STRK:MEBIDX:IT&_trksid=p2055119.m1438.l2649 I did some cursory research, and see this was part of a "budget" series of SG's of the era: SG I (one pickup), SG II (two pickups), and SG III (two pickups in a sunburst finish). http://www.vintageguitarandbass.com/gibson/SGII.php The guitar sold for $259, which is $1280 in 2016 dollars. These guitars are apparently made from Alder, and have a reduced headstock angle. The former doesn't concern me, but doesn't the latter affect sustain? This one has some aftermarket hardware, but original pickups. Do you concur those look like original pickups? What are your thoughts on 70's mini-humbuckers? It has some battle scars, and one of the horns was seriously damaged. The repair job looks less than professional IMO.
