    Hey, there is this SG for sale near me, wondering what you guys think of it...

    Is there anything you can tell about it based on this info/pictures - like which model it is? You guys seem to know a lot about them based off of the pick guard, tuning pegs and other little details and i am clueless. Its obviously going to need to be cleaned and gone through..

    Is it worth $100?

    I dont need another SG... but i need another SG if you know what i mean. It would be a fun little project to fix up.

    let me know what you think.

    i did a little digging and looks like based off the pick guard its a G310?

    I most likely dont want to mess with that, unless someone can offer up a good reason to..??

    Yep G310, if there's no major flaws then $100 seems reasonable.

    The seller needs to seriously clean his house.

    That is a G310 like other mentionned. It is a bolt on neck, which makes it about 1.5 inch shorter than its big brother, the G400. It is thus easier to play and better balanced. A great guitar for $100, but that place is scary filthy. Wear a haz suit to go get it. Don't be afraid to offer $75 for it. Tell the seller it needs serious cleaning and adjusting to bring it back to a normal playing state.

    White ones aren't that common.

    G-310s are OK, but the body wood is not as hard as I like. The output jack and pots can be punched through with a moderate whack. The jack fix is the most common repair to these. I like the pickups very much for rowdy metal and rock. I don't think I'd pay $100, but $75 , maybe.

    Thanks for the replies... i dont think i want to mess with a 310 right now, if it was a 400 i would go take a look at it.
