  1. i contacted this seller with great esteem but there are some issues so now im hesitant so im looking for some advice. the bridge is an unoriginal hardtail, though a nice one. was originally a vibriola. original bridge not included. also the pickgaurd was cut to add a strat style middle pup and the body was routed for that same purpose. the route is very clean and well done, they just removed the area between the pups so it looks like a universal route now. otherwise nothing but dings and scratches. i have more pics and high detail at that. if it werent for these issues it would be a steal of a deal. im thinking it might still be a pretty good buy though, but i just dont know. thoughts??

  2. Hello Mr JC,

    Could I ask you a favour ? I'm a guitarist in Belgium, can you please contact me on my myspace :

  3. Nelson: If you are considering the resale or collectible value of the guitar you should take those things into serious consideration - however if you are looking at playing and keeping the guitar then consider how it looks sounds and feels and figure that the fact it is a vintage 1966 SG adds at least $1K to whatever player value it has to you. If the pickups are the original Gibson P90's and all the electrics are original that is a big plus - but I'd imagaine the pots and wiring were changed if they added a middle pickup at one time - and note that Vibrolas were often taken off these guitars. If it looks good and plays and sounds great then the value should be obvious. Just don't expect a windfall if yu ever choose to resell it.

  4. Sold now...had a neck repair in addition to the route.


I appreciate your comments but please no commercial links or non guitar related conversations. Thank you. - JC
