    New project - hacked up (probably Korean) SG standard with binding

    I am recarving the bevels, indeed. Not sure if I'll go as extreme as the above picture though :-) Just got back from holiday with renewed energy for this project. Decided not to buy any more guitars and focus on this 'rebuild' whenever I've got free time from regular work, so expect some new...

    New project - hacked up (probably Korean) SG standard with binding

    Allright, I took a completely different route and put the lyre vibrola on my 3-pickup custom and... Scored a sideways vibrola from a guy that took it off his 2019 Gibson :naughty: so I can use it for my project and get the actual look I was going for in the first place. Picking it up this...

    How does this one look?

    Exactly, for that price, I can even live with the veneer (it indeed has one, I can tell from the edges of the bevels) It looks way better in reality than it does in the pictures.

    How does this one look?

    I have picked it up, because I couldn't let it slip for 160 euros and it is a beautiful guitar! And the fact that there are so many contradicting features makes it even more interesting :-) So there is a scarf joint, the serial number starts with UC07, the logo and crown are gold, the inlays...

    How does this one look?

    The inlays are kind of yellowish. The neck has a scarf joint but other then that, it looks more like a chinese vintage, not a faded....

    How does this one look?

    The serial number puts it at 2007, made in Unsung China? So what exactly does that mean for this guitar?

    I have the 2011 50th Anniversary edition of basically the same guitar, with the lightning bolt wraparound and I love it. No issues whatsoever.

    So a 2019 with binding could be legit?

    Samick made SG from 2019 with binding

    I didn't even realise they made them at the Samick plant in 2019, but with binding? Is this common? Found a local ad for one today....

    Can you show the trussrodcover-area? It doesn't look 'Korean' to me :hmm:

    Cover plate for holes

    So can they be bought somewhere? Do they have a name or was this probably just a self/custom made piece?
