  1. As for buying another one; that’s out of the question. I paid almost exactly $2000 for it brand new and they are selling (used) for a lot more now, as they don’t make them anymore...
  2. I bought it at Guitar Center brand new in 2009. It’s definitely a Gibson SG ‘61 Reissue Heritage Cherry; it’s got the ‘57 Classic Pickups, that super thin nitro finish, and it’s all one solid piece of mahogany. They don’t sell it anymore; the new ones are called the Gibson SG Standard 61 (burstbucker puckups along with a few other differences). Made in 2008; I edited the post to put another picture of the back of the headstock.
  3. Hey folks; I have an SG ‘61 Reissue that I was fortunate enough to have signed by Derek Trucks and Susan Tedeschi. To make a long, sad story short, my old college roommate kicked it over while on a stand. It cracked the finish on the body right below the tone knobs and around the side and back (he caught it before it toppled over and hit the neck or headstock on the floor). This happened about 4 years ago, and I just recently noticed some small cracks in the finish where the cream binding goes down the fretboard on the neck. So, it’s time to bite the bullet and have it fixed. My question to anyone who has had experience with this: how much do you think Gibson will charge to fix these cracks? The pictures show the damage on the body and now the neck... as well as one of Derek’s signature 😛
