Just find an old Standard and start putting cool stuff on and in it! Like an ABR 1 conversion, and really cool pickups with nickel silver covers from Mojotone, and a 50s wiring harness from Roxie13 over on MyLesPaul forum, and stuff like that! For $1000 all in, you'll have a $1500 custom SG...
I would love to see your Burny! I got a white Bacchus on Jauce, but I ended up reselling it. The neck was uncomfortable to me, kind of clunky, with uneven frets and big shoulders. So I would really like to see yours...
Anybody have a MIJ SG Custom they wanna sell? White would be nice, but any color is OK. Three PUs or two. Tokai, Epi Elite, Burney, Greco...I ain't fussy! I have someone looking on the Japan auctions for me too. I'm serious about this. So let me know.
Yes, siree! That's what I'M talkin about! I had my hands on a real '69, just like like yours, years ago, but I didn't have the cash. They wanted 1500 for it...:rofl:I'd settle for yours in a heartbeat. :D
Boy, ain't that the truth! I had a 1971 Strat I bought new that twisted. It got harder and harder to play, but I just ignored it until a player friend I really respected tried to play it, and told me to shitcan it. Which I did. Now it'd be worth lots of cash, but oh well.
I think it's absolutely beautiful! I love that it's thicker with a big neck. The headstock is gorgeous, the color is really nice too. It's got that great P-90 snarl with a little added low end. What's not to love? The price!!! They are really proud of it at $4200!
I've even got an old T-Top in fine working order, if you want it. I've also got a '57, a BB2 and 3, and an ol set of 490-498T out of a 2000 Standard. Don't buy from Gibson--too expensive. Buy or trade with one of us.
Well, Colonel, how come nobody mentions one of Gibson's best creations, the Epiphone Elite/Elitist line? Those Fujigen guitars were really great high-quality axes, for much less $$. I had both an Elite LP and an Elitist SG Standard, and both of them together cost less than a new SG Standard. And...
I still have the somewhat beat-up case to my '83 Norlin, if anybody wants it. It works fine. The drummer destroyed the guitar by accident onstage, but the case is still in my garage, all lonely and sh^t.
Yes! The pics! Autumn Shade is real scrumptious, Im thinking...now drag it to a gig and whale the tar out of it. SGs are such great guitars, just the best of everything. Tone, ergonomics, and looks. You done good, Silver!
