    Well, it's a cheap starter guitar he says.

    I would assume there must be a crack in the neck, bad fretwork, lots of scratches, dented frets or something. 75 is too good to be true.
    Epis are more than starters...

    From the seller: "...It is in shockingly good condition considering it's age; only some minor cosmetic damage. It is missing a string at the moment*, but it does come with a nice soft case. If you are interested, please message for details."

    No it's not.

    This is the kind of deal everybody complain they never get. When one comes along, you don't look for bugs or a conspiracy, you don't think, you just jump on it. Then you don't complain, you brag.

    That's how I got my Vintage G400 for $100, and my 60's Tribute Plus LP for $200, and my '61 RI Epi SG with P90 for $170, etc. All this in Canuck Pesos, that's like $350 USD for those 3 guitars.

    Ive just never come across an SG so darn cheap is all. You guys would know more than I, ive only bought two guitars and shops in Nashville overcharge for a lot of things. Even on craigslist I've never seen an SG cheaper than 100. I would jump on a deal like that just as much as you would, but i would be wary as to why its so cheap. Ive seen hundreds of strat copies under 80 but never an SG. The cheapest SG I ever found I bought. Its my Epi G400.

    There are definitely deals to be found but a lot of them are vety overpriced in my opinion. The standard for a high quality guitar is overpriced IMO. Got this at a Nashville pawnshop for $40 was 60 but talked him down. Swappef the dials with Epi bass ones and the hbucker with a p94.
