How much was it new ?
What's the neck profile ? 50's ?
2013 Cherry with 490R & T
I think those were priced close to the Gibson SG faded specials...
like about $699 US.
But later we saw many of those for sale later by mass marketeers for
more like $499 didn't we?
Or was I watching The Travel Channel?
List was around $1k, sale $500, clearance $400.
Thickness at 1st fret: 0.818”
Thickness at 12th fret: 0.963”
I have yet to run across an SG with a 50’s neck like one on an LP.
Used to think my SG Specials and Classics were fairly chunky until I got a custom shop LP Special with a fat 50’s neck (0.925-1.000”) with lots of shoulder.
To me, SG necks now feel like playing a ruler by comparison to an LP with a fat 50’s neck.
I went to try that SGJ for a trade. That ain't no 50's profile. It's pretty much the same as my Epiphone G400 Vintage, which I consider superior in built, looks and feel. Every time I try a humbucker equipped Gibson SG, I come to the same conclusion. I guess I'll stop looking.
That is a beautiful SG
Yes it is. I don't think the SGJ would have replaced it, more like a complement.
Short of its metric hardware and the top inch of its headstock, this G400 is pretty close to a Gibson.
One piece neck, wings on the headstock like the real thing, no veneer solid mahogany, long tenon, cream color bound fretboard.
It has a set of Tyson Tone PAFs in it.
$499 new from sweetwater . Best neck and fretboard of all my SGs.
Well, they're not that price anymore. You have the 2014 ?
And you find the neck profile thick ?
i had a 2013...definitely not as fat as a 50s neck i had on a LP...
also not 60s slim taper either... so ya somewhere in between.
obviously been modded...kinda wished I still had it now...
oh ya i bought it new back then for around $580-590?
Only an Epiclone is good enough ...
Sorry guys. Very sick and trying not to die. Working from phone very tough so can't reply in detail.
@Biddin best wishes for a speedy recovery, sorry to hear you are not well.
Ooooo ... sorry. Rest and come back healthy.
2013 SG 50s Tribute=fat neck
That's the P90 "Prototype " ?
Yeah, that's the one, Nice guitar, I also own a Korean made Epi Les paul/sg custom, it has the proper
baseball bat neck, pretty much the same taper all the way to the heel
