    First SG

    I've taken lessons for quite a while now, and when I told my instructor about getting an SG Standard, he told me quite a bit. This is all I know about sound but I guess the sound in Standards are sharper and clearer than the Specials. I actually got my SG Standard today but it is in bad condition so.... havent really tried it out that much yet :-
  2. You know what guys, I've been thinking a lot about it and I think I will bring it to Daddys and see how much they charge to make it look brand new. If it isn't TO MUCH, maybe under 200, I will do it. I really hate getting into this where I have to return it, get a new one and it also ends up sucking etc. I will keep you all updated but please keep up the postings and thanks for the great help
  3. I know its used but the only flaw they told me was the scratched pickguard.... and I don't know if I should just return it or go to a guitar shop and pay to get it repaired
  4. The worst thing was god knows what, I bought a SG from guitar center and it was in shitty condition. http://forums.gibson.com/default.aspx?g=posts&t=37164
  5. Quick reply, the gooy **** is most likely a product the previous owner used to glue back in a chipped part of the guitar's neck
  6. Recently, I was working on my friends Gibson SG Standard and I was so impressed with it, I had to but my own. So I'm here looking all over the place for one, and WOOLA, I find one on guitarcenter.com for only 800.00. So I say to myself, okay, 800 vs 1,200 sounds quite good to me (it was used) so I call up the store that owns it and it turns out they don't ship store to store for free like daddys junky music does. So I am still saying to myself Okay, whatever, shipping only costs like 3 dollars so that's okay to me. Then I ask about any flaws on the model. All I am told is that there are minor scratches on the pickguard and " from doing what a guitar is supposed to have done to it ". So I chuckle and say okay, give it to me. Then I notice on my bill, it was 850 instead of 803 dollars but I didn't really care. A week later, aka right now, I found a box next to my house with the top of it open.... I look down and there is my SG Standard so I say Wtf happened? I bring it inside, take it out and was disgusted. There is this nasty smudge of goo on the side of the neck, scratches all over the place, the cover of the pickup switch wasn't glued in ( the thing that says Treble and rhythm ) the low E string seems a little bit odd, the bottom strap peg (not sure what it is called but the thing you put the strap on that has 2 parts, one on the back and on at the bottom) isnt glued in and is all wobbely. I am not sure if this is how it is supposed to be but the pickups can be easily moved up and down in there spot. So here are some questions for people to answer if they can. Should I just return this thing and find a different SG, or should I pay to get it repaired and cleaned up. What can you tell me from the serial number about it. 00893584 If I brought it to a local guitar shop, could they clean up the pickguard and the bridge, pickups from scratches? How much from what the issues seem to be, would it cost to get it all cleaned up? As of my review, they obviously shipped to me what was on the shelves of their store. So I am disgusted that they didn't clean this guitar from the goo and other **** on it. PICS http://img24.imageshack.us/gal.php?g=badsg001.jpg
  7. Shutter Island. Loved the amount of Twist the movie had, good acting and was different. That movie is easily picked as one my favorite movie. Harbor Island. Just a movie I enjoyed, nothing super special Evil Dead Series. A great horror movie for the time. Made me have great laughs and I still enjoy it this very day. Hope they make the new one soon
  8. Seriously mad about Paul McCartney, he was in my area playing at a concert last year and I didn't even know.... AND HE IS ON HIS FAREWELL TOUR RIGHT NOW (supposedly its his last one) AND HE ISNT EVEN IN THIS GOD DAMN COUNTRY
  9. Yeah well, I was limited to a few poll choises so I just picked them in order from current to the least
  10. Naw man, he played in the late 60's
  11. Damnit Damnit DAMNIT! I accidentally hit the 70's...... Jimi, I have failed you
  12. Don't forget about Hendrix, B.B King, Elvis, Beatles, ETC.
  13. I am starting to notice that the best bands are getting older and may not do any more concerts. Hell, Mccartny's last tour isn't even in AMERICA!!!! So, I am trying to roundup the best bands to go to before they all go away. Heres what I've got so far. B.B King (Already been too a concert) Van Halen (They are supposedly doing a reunion concert) KISS Paul McCartney (If he hopefully does 1 last tour in America which I hope he does)
  14. Im going to add in another one. Stealing a plastic knife from Mcdonalds, then going to the bank, grab someone from behind and threatened to kill him if I didn't get 2000$ to get a Les Paul. Well, Half of that I don't regret and sadly half of it isn't true
  15. Yeah, body wise especially with the horns
  16. Make sure its the worse, let people know that if they've done something that they haven't been through ****. Mine is buying a STARcaster by Fender, I'm goin to hell for that
  17. Lol, I mean the colors, the way the pickguard is to the body. The body is different thought, but just think outside the box
  18. Did a bit more investigating, holy ****, Gibson copied that guitar! http://www.gibson.com/en-us/Lifestyle/ProductSpotlight/NewModels/the-new-eye-guitar-407/
  19. Saw this on the Gibson page a long time ago in a galaxy far far away. http://travel.ninemsn.com.au/img/culture/large/wiggles.jpg Links to a store page please, may want to purchase it, looks quite nice in my eyes
  20. What I want to see. SG Standards with more finishes, rather than just 3. Like a wood color, gold maybe. Make sure they aren't rare or anything, just a normal gold SG Standard. Also, cheaper guitar. I'd see a nice 800$ Gibson Guitar with 500$ spent in mechanics and all, that would be nice.
  21. It truely is sad that companies / people make and buy fake guitars on purpose because of how cheap they are sold for. If you cant afford a Gibson guitar, then you don't deserve to play guitars
