I'm planning on getting my first SG, and I found these 2 guitars online that fit my price range, but I'm just not sure about the legitimacy or problems.
I'm completely new to SGs and have little to no knowledge about them, and I would like to know if these 2 guitars are legitimate or fake, if they have any problems that I should be aware of, or if they're worth the price at which the sellers are selling them for. I'm especially skeptical about the second guitar (the one on ebay) as it doesn't have the normal covered pickups the regular SG standards have (the sellers they got replaced), has a repaired crack on the neck and also the serial engraving just looks a bit sketchy.
Any help is greatly appreciated, thanks.
