I don't have the money but even if I did I have never believed you need to spend numbers like $8000 to get a good guitar.
You don't...... but if you want the 1964 SG Standard on reverb dot com in Brooklyn, NYC...you will need about $9300 after tax is added to the sale.Personally I think the hype behind the older so-called 'Vintage' Gibson's is a myth. How much better is a 1964 SG Standard going to sound than my 2017 SG Standard ? and is it worth the extra cost ? I doubt it, seriously doubt it...... and find some STANDARDS and all CUSTOM Shop guitars will be more adequate to sound better than a Vintage specimen...for thousands of $$$ less.
I have a 2017 Gibson SG Standard that is an absolute CANNON and it cost me $1299 and If it were my only guitar I would be forever satisfied that I had a Great Guitar.I have yet to put it up against a 1964 SG Standard thru the same rigs and to see which sounds better, but I would be willing to do so if someone presented me with the opportunity !
