    So - an SG has been on my wish list for years - but due to a plentiful supply of other guitars I've never quite been motivated to pull the trigger until I came across this - lack of veneers was the tipping point for me :)

    I think this is a '99 Korina SG. PA140071.JPG PA140072.JPG PA140073.JPG

    Nice Korean one !

    If no veneer is what you're after, you might consider a 2004-2005 G400 Vintage. No veneer, binding on neck, no scarf joint, Alnico Classics pups. Real real nice SG.

    Yes - the build quality of this is superb - flawless I would say. The keystone tuner pegs were a little loose and buzzy, and the previous owner had tried to fix that by tightening the truss rod all the way .... making for an unplayable guitar.

    Reversing that attempted fix and running some light superglue into the keystone pegs resulted in a beautiful looking, playing and sounding guitar.

    How young do you have to be so 1999 = "old"?
