Alrighty, so this is my first post here on these forums. (Skip the introduction to the third paragraph if you want to get to the point. Just feels weird showing up out of the blue with a question). I'm 14 and have been playing guitar since I was twelve. I have no intention to brag, but I would say that for my age, I have a fair amount of guitar knowledge. About an hour ago I signed up to this site because I think that I can get some good advice from some real "Gear Heads". Also, I don't know many people my age that I can talk about music and guitars with. Why SGs? Well, Angus Young has always been my "guitar hero" if you like. So naturally an SG is gonna be my instrument of choice. I currently only really own the same guitar that I started on. A Katoh Spanish Guitar. I'm not going to talk sh** about it just because I have shame in not having some $3000 dollar (thats AUD btw) instrument. It was easy to learn on, it has zero flaws and it definitely plays better than the guitars at my school. So I've been saving up for a new guitar recently and I've basically got my heart set on an SG. I had been looking around on the Gibson website for some eye candy. I stumbled upon the 2015 Standard. I looked through the finishes and found the Fireburst finish which I believe (correct me if I'm wrong because I probably am) was the only year where Gibson did that finish, let alone any burst for the SGs. I instantly fell in love with the finish since it was such a nice relief to the standard Cherry and Ebony. Now I know that the 2015 line is quite controversial because of all of the things they did to it. Me? If I were to buy one I'd probably replace the robot thingos. But I'd be quite happy with all the other features (apart from that Les Paul Holo which can't quite have anything done about it as far as I know). The zero fret nut is a pretty cool feature and I haven't really heard anything bad about it. I do have one concern with the neck though, but thats for another thread. The reason I am writing this is as follows; I was looking around on Gumtree for this 2015 SG and after about a week of waiting for one to pop up, it did! These are all the picture that the guy listed it for. Its a negotiable(Which I'm pretty sure means that he expects to have at least $100 drop off) $1850 AUD, which is about $150 off the RRP, though there is the "Negotiable" tag to account for. I'm currently at $1300 so I'll need to do a bit more saving if I were to buy this thing. But who wants think about guitars they can already afford? Anyways, I don't want to somehow buy a fake Gibson as my first electric. So I really want to be safe with what I buy here. So could anybody tell me if there's something on this instrument that isn't right? From the limited photos this guy has provided (which raises a few questions) I can see that he's left the G-force things on it, I don't mind. I have noticed that the burst is slightly different to what I saw on the website, as in it has a red outer colour. It still looks damn beautiful and its probably just due to the fact that Gibson glorify the pictures. Another suspicious thing is that he shows the pictures of the guitar in its case but the only picture of the case itself is a stock Gibson photo of it. Seems a bit odd to me but whatever. Opinions? Suspicions? Advice? Too Long? Am I too paranoid? Please, I need some help to decide whether I should start looking at another axe and get this one out of the picture. Thanks for putting up with the probably unnecessary length of this post.
