    How bad are these cracks?

    While it is repairable is that really what you want? Unless it was an unbelievable deal I would return it. At best it will always be a guitar that has had a repair and so retain less value.

    Good MiJ SG copies?

    This is wrong. The only guitar Gibson threatened to sue over were the Ibanez LP copies and they changed their headstock before the case made it to court. here, I searched it for you The True Story Behind Japanese 'Lawsuit' Guitars – Soundfly

    Who installed Kluson Revolutions , what do you think?

    I have them on an older Faded, early 00's. They work fine, I just don't care for the way they look personally

    What is this model?

    Assuming that it is a repurposed SG neck, and I too think that is the case here, I'd say a 69 neck. 3pc neck started in 69, I personally can't see the logo clearly enough from the pics to be certain, but I don't see a dot over the "i" in Gibson as with 69's. Heel design most closely matches 69...

    What makes you say that? It's just my opinion, but not much is clear about this guitar.

    I want to buy my first SG

    If you are a bit new to guitars I'd suggest taking an experienced player along to help check any used guitar out. They might be more likely to notice any flaws etc.

    My First SG! (And first post)

    I had one of those about 12 years ago. It was a nice playing guitar. I put 3 Seymour Duncan pickups in it. Still have the Epi pickups in a box in the closet. I liked mine. And I like your guitar too.

    New SG Day

    To the best of my knowledge Gibson is a "Nitro" company.
