1980 SG R1 Artist Hey everyone, this is my first post here. However, I've been spying on this forum for several years now; I figured it was time to officially join the collective of this awesome and rare guitar. I purchased mine 15 years ago for $350. It was (and still is) glorious, until someone backed into on stage and the headstock nearly snapped off the second it hit the ground. After it sat for the last 8 years, I think its about time to start refurbishing it into the true beauty it is. I still have almost all the original parts, accessories, and electronics. It's just extremely beat up. I'm debating what color/stain to paint, and methods for achieving a near factory finish. Anyways, I'm glad I finally joined.
