    NGD: 1963 SG Special, Polaris White

    I was contacted back in June by a Gibson Custom Shop employee who saw a post that I made on MLP several years ago featuring my '61 LP/SG Standard. He created an account just to contact me and let me know that he used to own that guitar from around 2000-2010 and was interested in getting it back...

    My 1965 Gibson SG Special Cherry wide nut chrome Vibrola

    Hi all thought I'd finally make a post about my SG. My first professional standard guitar was a 1968 Gibson SG Special bought when I was 16. I used to plug it straight into my '70s Marshall JMP stack. Sounded incredible. I don’t remember thinking it was vintage or anyone making a deal about it...

    2019 SG Special neck vs ‘61 SG Standard

    Hi all, First post here. You all know your SGs! I recently got a 2019 SG Special in Pelham Blue and I really like the neck on it. I am finding that I may be more of a humbucker guy though, and can get a deal on a new ‘61 Standard through Sweetwater. My question is, are the necks the same on...

    Best years for a reliable & quality SG Special?

    Hi all, I’m new. I am looking for a robust and reliable SG, and after playing several SG Specials I’ve decided I like those the best. What wondering what range of years are best for an SG Special? I know everyone says Les Pauls in the 90s were great, but does this apply to SGs as well? What...

    67 or 68 SG Special

    Can I get some help to determine if this is a 67 or 68 SG Special? Also can I get on advise as to approximate value with the original hard case... Guitar is in 100% original condition, has some minor condition issues but as expected for something over 50 years old.... I would say mint for 50...

    Replacement tuning mechanisms for an Epiphone Standard SG!

    Actually I am perfectly fine with my Epiphone SG Special being a really cheap guitar, it's a pretty solid guitar, and with the right adjustments it both sounds and plays great. Don't really have anything at all to complain about but one thing, the stock tuning mechanisms, which in my opinion...

    Neck material for Epiphone SG Special from May 2012?

    Not that it's all that important, even if I'd prefer the neck of my guitar being made from hard maple rather than much softer mahogany. The recipe from the shop where I bought it says maple neck, bought in September 2012. The serial number says it was made in May 2012. The 2011/2012 catalog...

    Help Identify this SG

    Hi Everyone, I just bought this Epiphone SG Special secondhand from Amazon. It was advertised as an Epiphone SG Special w/ KillPot. It is not. It does not have the pickguard that those models had, and it does not have a killpot. I'm assuming that it is an earlier model SG special. The...
