    Wow! hat is a quality looking skeleton you have there. Such detail is hard to find & most instantly look cheap & fake but yours! Just amazing! Do you know year & factory it was made at? If you ever want to sell it please, keep me in mind. That guitar looks really cool next to it. Old Rockers never die. The skin just rots off the bone! ha ha.

    No for some serious adoration. I love the 62 reissues, especially the feel of the neck. They usually are a solid feeling guitar in comparison to say a new 2014 Standard. How do you find yours to feel? That is a great price too! $1999.oo!! Can't remember them ever being that low bro. The last person I new that bought one paid $1000 more!! Nice bargain. What is your feeling on the aged finish & chrome?? Maybe a daylight pic that shows the grain & finish would be cool. I'd be interested.

    Congratulations on the 62!

    Sell me that skeleton when you're ready to let 'er go man.

    Rock On. 'til the skin falls off the bone baby.

    I got this one in a trade a few days ago - 2009 SG Standard with a B5 and Vibramate, and Lollar Imperial under-wound pups. I can believe I didn't own one of these sooner - the neck practically plays itself!

    Interesting looking pair of guitars you got there! I like what you've done with them such as adding a newer chrome trem (they always remind me of the Riffleman & his lever action carbine for some reason) :hmm: and adding the long Vibrola on the other was a nice touch.

    Now I gotta ask, what is up with the whitish headstock on the left? My guess is that this was a converted special because of the remaining pickguard , dot neck & neck binding. Maybe a 65-66? But why the whitish headstock? And, is that a Satin Cherry refin on the body? It looks so smooth in the pic. I love that trem handle too bro! Not as common as the ivory tipped ones.

    So tell me, whats the deal on these two fine lookin girls??

    I'm not supposed to tell anybody but,.....I think ... 'He gone'! He gave me the sign in passwords & sent $50 from his paypal account and asked me to cover for him & hold things down until he gets back,...but he's already been gone for almost a week now! I'm beginning to realize that might I be stuck here. Now I totally understand why he might have 'runoft'. Oh well, I guess I'll start selling guitars & amps so I can work on starting that vintage car savings fund I been thinkin 'bout.

    And Boy! Have I been noticing some hot looking rods lately.

    Guitar in question.

    That would make this statement a technical misprint.

    Frank Zappa's Roxy SG is a '64 the other is a '61 Les Paul Tribute. What's not 60-ish about either of those?

    Here is my 87' SG. Can any one tell me why they went with the jack on the end of the body and not the front, also the knob and switch placement is different to other Sg's as well. This guitar is pure joy i bought it new.

    It's hard to find Gibson's official reasons on paper other than their mentioning the Attractive Look of these models speed knobs as moving the jack off the front cleans up the visual appearance in this area. I don't think you'll see Gibson give mention too or acknowledge all the breaks or cracked bodys from the jack being hit or pulled sideways while plugged in to a front mounted jack. Like below!

    [​IMG]

    Or even worse!!!!:ohno:

    [​IMG]

    Sometimes all it takes is having a cord plugged into the front & stepping in the cable to crack that jack and the wood it's attached to free of the body with a nasty break. We've all seen them. In theory, plugging directly into a jack on the bottom of the guitar would allow the cord to simply be pulled out of the guitar when stepped on and not tweek the jack sideways & break wood like on a front mounted jack. Oh what the hell, one more pic!

    [​IMG]

    Most of us quickly learn to wrap the cable around the strap to prevent such breaks but that doesn't stop the breaks that happen from the cable end being hit while left plugged into the front of the guitar & getting hit. In fact, even when the jack is moved to the Bottom of the guitar like on your SG, you can still break things.

    But of course this is only my opinion & observation on why the jack may have moved & not Gibsons official reasoning(s). I too would be interested in finding out if someone has some actual Gibson documentation of propaganda literature on the subject beyond their comments on attractive appearance. Good luck.
