    Did you buy this guitar?

  2. they seem 57 Classic PAF also the spacing of the letters in "FOR" are tighter then "PATENT" which is very similar to the image attached... so it maybe make me think these pickpus are recent...
  3. how to tell if they are even Gibson or else? what year?? they have no code whatsoever...
  4. a friend offered me a vintage Gibson SG for $800 - the serial number 855*** means it can be '66 or '69, but since the headstock logo is missing the dot on i - variation introduced in 68 - think this is a 69. - to me it seems a SG Special converted with humbuckers - the humbuckers are classic 57, not sure year fo them - i didn't remove the pickguard, but i suspect the holes can accommodate P-90 - the truss rod cover seems non original - also the knobs are not original for that age (69 used to have witch hat knobs if i'm correct) - the neck has a small crack, not deep on the E tuner, but it doesn't have repairs in the joint or so - the body could have been refinished but we don't know for sure - the original vibrato has been replaced but a fixed tailpiece - i didn't open the electronics so i don't know if they are original - the tuners don't seem original what do you think?

  6. i can have a very good deal for this guitar but i want to be sure it doesn't hide anything worst that it shows im not a gibson expert and i never owned one but i know there are soem stuff to consider... for instance like it's very easy for a 62 to have some cracks...but i'm wondering which cracks are considerable ok or a bad crack please see these photos also here you can see the mods... i don't get if this model had a tremolo or a regular wrap around bridge can anybody know what can be done to bring it back as much a possible to a factory setting? of course i'm not looking for a collectors item here, i want a player grade axe but i want to be sure im buying something hat can keep value at least how much would you value this guitar?
