    Hi All,

    New to the board, only registered yesterday.
    I created this obsession with SG-like guitars early 2017.

    I owned a Gibson SG Faded some years ago but couldn't bond with it somehow. Body to thin for the huge neck, it felt like I was holding only a neck. Decided to sell it, but I might regret that now...

    Can't afford to spend those amounts of money on guitars at the moment (recently divorced) so I make do with cheap chinese 'copies' that I can work on. Reshape, refinish, upgrade hardware, etc. I'm using Thomann's housebrand Harley Benton for that at the moment.

    Welcome Franc.

    What is it that you regret about selling the SG Special Faded?
    Those are my favorite ones to play.

    I guess I regret not owning a real Gibson anymore and probably never will... So it's not really that guitar that I regret selling.

    Then again, I'm having much fun with my Chinese copies. Refinishing the 'custom' three pup to gold currently.
