    Hi,

    Looking at buying a used Gibson SG. The seller is saying it is a 2006 standard. It is a light color, perhaps walnut (??). Serial number indicates it was made in June, 2006 in Nashville. If anyone can shed light on what color / model this is, it would be greatly appreciated.

    A good guitar is a good guitar regardless of year or model.

    It certainly LOOKS good, if it plays like it looks it is a keeper for sure.

    The natural burst wasn’t popular, didn’t fly off the shelf like the standard SG colors, black, cherry... but I think there is good demand for it now that it is discontinued. It’s certainly beautiful, and are excellent t guitars.

    I had a friend walk in and buy one an hour before we were meeting up with ACDC to have Angus sign it. He had Angus use a black sharpie on it, which he did a nice signature, but it took away from the guitar for sure.

    funniest part was watching the guy at Tom Lee music help us.

    Friend: knows nothing about guitars and doesn’t play. But plays one hell of an air guitar at a show. Walks in, touches a few cherry’s and a black.

    Employee: spouting off facts about pick ups, necks widths etc.

    Friend: not really listening or answering questions from said employee

    Employee: have I told you about our payment plans?

    Friend: No. “Hey, can I see that one up there”?

    Employee: “sure” (eye roll). Grabs the ladder and figure we are wasting his time.

    Friend: takes hold of it, looks at the front... looks at the back... hums, ha’s...

    Employee: “Do you want to plug it in”?

    Friend: No, I don’t think so

    Employee: doesn’t know what else to say.

    Friend: “ok, I will take it”

    Employee: are you sure you don’t want to plug it in?

    Friend: Nah, I am good

    Employee: Wow, ok! Let me get the case, I will meet you up front.

    Friend: Oh wow, it comes with a case!? Neat.

    We must have been in and out in 6 minutes. Friend thought it was a great experience. Why do you guys always spend so much time at the music store? Just pick one and let’s go. Lol. He couldn’t understand why the clerk was so weird. I explained that is not there normal experience with folks coming in and thumbing through $2,000 guitars.


    personally I think the natural burst is classy as [email protected]
