  1. I would look at the Guitar Center website to see what these are going for used there to get a pricing estimate. This is a 2015 and they sold poorly due to the tuners and headstock graphics. It will fetch lower than a similar classic from a different year.
  2. I think Epiphone makes a fine product but now that I have a Gibson budget I buy Gibson vs Epiphone. I still have and play several Epiphones but in general I prefer the prestige of a Gibson vs an Epi.
  3. How did the replacement SG turn out for you? Better I hope.
  4. The second picture of the fretboard looks like a dyed rosewood to me.
  5. Congratulations on your new guitar, I hope that you continue to enjoy it for years to come.
  6. Do I have one of that model, year, color already? How does it play and sound? Do I really want it? What niche does it fill? These are the things I think about when checking out a new guitar.
  7. People use the T for a solo vs the R? 😯🤔
  8. They were essential for me to graduate.
  9. Why doesn’t Gibson release an updated version of that? I would buy it, if they put on a Floyd or a Kahler.
  10. Sad day for the blues. Rest In Peace Otis...
  11. We don’t get sales like you do. Our clearance sales have started and the prices are still not as good as what I saw at Dawson’s up in Manchester in July.
  12. I am familiar with the SG that the OP is referring to, it is a limited edition available only through AMS and Zzounds. If Sweetwater was selling it, I don’t think it would be any better because my experience is they don’t pay that good of attention either. I posted previously about my 2018 RD and the mess that Sweetwater sent me...
  13. So would it make sense for me go to the UK and buy a guitar? That standard is beautiful!
  14. I bought a 2014 Gibson SG Futura and the first 2 were messes that had to go back. I waited a few years and picked up a used one for under $500 and it was a winner. I think you were right to send them back but I wouldn’t risk a third time. Just my opinion though.
  15. New ES-330 arrived from Zzounds today. This was supposed to be delivered on Saturday but they did the wrong shipping on it. Additionally all the case candy was missing, all the stuff Gibson listed as included. Zzounds asked me to call Gibson to have them replace what someone removed in their warehouse. I guess Zzounds just made it to my do not buy from list... I haven’t even tuned the guitar yet...
  16. I got an email a couple of days ago about a new round of Gibson clearance deals at American Musical Supply so I checked Zzounds and saw that they had the deals happening too. The best deals are on the 2018 Gibson ES-330 in a few different colors as well as the ES-339. The ES-330s are going for $1,799 and the ES-339s are going for $1,999. I was able to get Zzounds to knock down a ES-330 in the Aquamarine finish to $1649 and throw in a free cable as well. Zzounds definitely seems to play nicer with customers than AMS. Links are below for the sites: AMS link for the ES-330: https://www.americanmusical.com/ItemSearch--search-Es__330--srcin-1 AMS link for the ES-339: https://www.americanmusical.com/ItemSearch--search-Es__339--srcin-1 Zzounds link for the ES-330: https://www.zzounds.com/item--GIBLTDES33018 Zzounds link for the ES-339: https://www.zzounds.com/item--GIBES3918
  17. That is a beautiful guitar. I think it looks better with the covered pickups. Excellent find!
  18. I have one with a vibrola term and if I look at it funny, it goes out of tune. I just view it as being a cosmetic attachment.
  19. There was a limited run of 2017 Les Paul Classics in the fire burst finish made for Sam Ash stores here in the states. The pickups were uncovered so Bemb, that is another modification to your guitar. I toyed with buying one when they cleared them out at $1599.
  20. I have one. I bought it from Zzounds for $799 in May. Setup was horrible on it but I fixed it. The finish is thin and not smooth. Now that it is set up, it plays great and sounds great. It has a very 2017 SG standard sound to it. I bought it because it is the color of my car.
  21. I have a 2015 Special DC and it is fairly thick, more so than a SG but with the access of a SG. Personally I am not a fan of it but I want one of each model in the shunned 2015 model year so I have it.
