'68 Custom Vibrolux Reverb thingy. NOT a vintage amp, a knockoff of their own silverface. 35 watts, 2x10s, silverface. What's not to love?

You and I are the only two peoples I know with this guitar and we both don't like the neck. My first SG at 51 years old, my last SG I'm sure.

Nice! I have taken mine out a couple times, but it just doesn't quite cut it in a bar, even on top of a Bandmaster cab.

The Vibrolux should be perfect. I like how you have tremolo and reverb on both channels on the new version

Early 90's, '57 Classics that I put in it in 98 or so when I bought it at Philly Phall show. It's not a bad guitar at all, I just don't need it.

That's ironic. I have a 1993 G-400 with a chrome cover on the neck pickup only just like your LP. Was gonna send a PM seeing if you'd ship it, but just noticed the big chip on the top. Hope they give you a decent trade for it.

I hope so too, but I'd rather trade than sell any day, same as it ever was. That scratch on top is the only cosmetic thing wrong with it. I didn't have it from 2004 to last month, no telling what happened to it! It had two covered pickups last I saw it, somebody was doing some guitaring in there somewhere along the way.
