Discussion in 'Gibson SG' started by TNT, Jan 4, 2007.
Did Gibson ever make a SG without any bevels?
Didn't they make bevelless SGs at the height of the Norlin years?
The ones with the semicircular black plastic control plate on the
front and the pickguard that looked like it came off an LP?
I know the horns had no bevels.
Many Norlin Sg's had what I call "rounded" horns, not even enough to qualify as "bevels"
They were still nicer guitars than we thought at the time.
Hey guys I took another look at it this morning. Everything about it screams fake: shitty binding, f'ed up headstock inlay, complete lack of bevels, no SN, etc.....
Yesterday I had a minor surgery in the morning and was on some pretty heavy painkillers. I wasn't exactly thinking straight at the time I saw that "project" and posted it. Haha whoops! Definitely wouldn't even consider buying that now that I've taken a second look!!!
"Minor surgery" is an oxymoron.
There is no such thing.
Hope you're OK.
x2! Get well soon bro

Speedy recovery . A couple of years ago, literally on the way home from out-patient surgery , I saw a beautiful,rare, 1958 Chevy Impala with a "for sale" sign and insisted my daughter stop so I could write down the address . When I returned, relatively lucid, two days later, I was quite disappointed to find a rusting hulk missing most of its trim and one fender ! (But that's why those impressionists made those lovely paintings, ain't it?)
Thank you guys all. I am feeling much better today and my surgery was a huge success! I really appreciate the well wishes and kind thoughts...Biddlin, that's a funny story!! My dad actually owns a 58 Impala would you believe it?! Thanks again everyone :)
Not quite an SG but a '59 Special. This has to be the worst repair I've ever seen!
I've seen one very fixed in a similar manner but without turnbuckles, so this is as bad is it gets. Who repaired that, a circus-tent rigger?
I would dump some super glue all over that and then duct tape it. Should be ok.
I was thinking of the same guild while reading this. There was one at a local guitar shop recently. I dont care for carved up guitars but that guild was tasteful.
Gibson USA SG Special Heavy Relic Mods | eBay
this guy says: Cool, cool, cool! Heavily reliced out 2011 model Gibson SG Special Faded, made in Nashville, with a few mods thrown in. Guitar has been sprayed with gloss white acrylic lacquer and reliced from there. Boring Gibson knobs removed and metal Telecaster knobs put in their place. Nickel Seymour Duncan humbucker covers on the dual Classic 57 pickups. All metal has been reliced out to look super vintage. Kluson Deluxe vintage style tuners installed. Genuine Gibson "SG" truss rod cover from a Standard. Super low and smooth action on this guitar. Nice straight neck... plays nice. The photos don't do this guitar justice... at all. Looks good... plays even better.
HOLY SCHNIKIES BATMAN! If this is considered cool or a "heavy relic" ... I don't know what to say LOL it's a 2011 FFS!
" The item may have some signs of cosmetic wear"
lol. Notice the pu covers are backward,
although that may be the norm in Kentucky. What a total pos, but the
guitar might be salvageable . I'd offer the guy $200 if it were on Sacramento's cl.(Roughly the value of the hardware) As a reseller, I'd have to throw away the pickup covers, stopbar and tele knobs, strip and refinish the wood, replace the bridge and knobs and then I'd be lucky to get $500 out of it. If I'm buying one to play, I can find a half dozen in better condition at half that price. Still, it might be better than this:
Some people need to be prosecuted for guitar atrocities.
"This listing was ended by the seller because the item is no longer available."
Does anyone believe that this POS sold for $699 ?
"Shows normal signs of wear...."
If this sold for that much...I will have lost total confidence in what I know about the market. No waaay lol
hahaha I know, right?
The price is ok, as long as it produces plenty of
good quality milk.
