    I was hoping it was me. After all, if you say I must buy it, then I must!

    Is it not bad enough that Sanford Magnetics is now on my Reverb and Ebay watch list? I went back for those $ 100 9022s in black, but they were gone. Do you know anything about that? I am very much looking forward to trying them out.

    I think the Doc means these models are before they used veneers on the body.these are nice year Epis.

    No, but I should have jumped on it.
    You can have that, a watch list for a specific product, not just an existing listing ? Good to know.

    And I mean that this SG is THE one to get, everything you want out odf a SG is there. 57' Classic and Classic+, binding, no veneer. I'm tempted to buy it to put a set of Gibson P94 I just traded. But I'm too cheap to do that, I paid $100 CND for mine.

    Attempts to be specific may vary, but I have done watches for "Tom Anderson pickup" "PRS pickup" "BKP pickup" "bare knuckle pickup" with great success (unfortunately). "Sanford Electronics" has been added to the list but I am getting amps and pedals, so I will add the word "pickup".

    Hey! That's my listing! I saw the thread title and I said 'wow - another vintage worn brown G-400!'. I just bought a 2011 Gibson '61 reissue - that's why I listed it. The guitar is pristine - and I'm not sure there is much difference between it and my '61 reissue. Just joined the forum - a lot of great stuff here.

    Ah ! Welcome then John.
    Funny, first posts are usually about a recent acquisition, not a for sale ad.
    Have you tried the real thing before buying it ? If they are so alike, why are you switching ?

    You know what would be real fun to do, before you sell the Epi ? To take close-ups of both guitars, different angles and details, except for the headstock and let us try to guess which is which. People here will love you if you do this.

    Oh yeah, and it might help you sell the G400.

    ! ! ! It just sold ! ! !
    Is it too late for you to do the comparison ? Is it gone yet ?
    A fellow from here bought it ?

    To be honest, my 2007 is one of the "veneer" models, and unless you knew it was there or you're Norm Abram you wouldn't spot it.

    Pretty easy to spot. The top grain won't follow on the bevels on a veneer guitar. And you'll see the joints of the multiple mahogany planks.
