  1. 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.

  2. Hi. I just picked up a disassembled 2004 Epi Goth SG -- haven't started putting it back together yet. My impression of Epiphone stock pickups has always been that they were a bit dark and muddy, without a lot of character, so I thought I'd go ahead and plan on swapping them out, maybe for a set of Dragonfires or GFSs. Anyone have thoughts on the PUs that come standard in the Goth SGs, or what might make a good replacement? I'll probably mod and resell it, so I'd like to make it a versatile guitar, and not just a hi-gain screamer (which the Goth models seem to me aimed at). Appreciate any feedback before I start the project... Cheers, J.C.
  3. Hey I recently bought what I was told was a 1984 Epiphone SG. I know obviously that this is bull, as Epiphone only started making the SG in 1989. Can anyone verify if this is a real Epiphone SG. Btw, I've checked for a serial number but can't find one
  4. Hi all, I got a crack in the neck of my Epiphone SG right next to the body, see photos. I tried removing the neck but I'm not sure I can (see third photo) and don't want to force it and make things worse. How would you suggest fixing this? Is it possible to remove the neck, apply some wood glue and let dry? Would it be better not to remove the neck at all? It looks like the truss rod doesn't go all the way into the body but I can't be sure. Thanks!
  5. Hello All, I've recently been browsing Gibson's Website from Australia and it seems that a few guitars have disappeared from view/ possibly been discontinued by Gibson? These are a mix of USA and Custom models, seem to all be 2019, 2018 and some earlier models as well. I looked for the Les Paul Standard, but it is nowhere to be found, nor is the Traditional, even the HP... It doesn't matter what line you look at- even Acoustic or Custom from what I understand. To put it simply, a noticeable number of models names seem to have disappeared from a number of ranges (Explorer, SG, Les Paul, Memphis). Is this a glitch or has Gibson actually made the decision to discontinue the seemingly invisible models? Any info is much appreciated.
  6. Anyone got info on the Gibson SG 2011 Standard Limited Natural Burst Guitar Center Exclusive model?
  7. Hi, I've been offered a 2012 '61 Reissue SG. The seller sent me some nice close ups (I attached one) where the wood texture seems to be much more prominent than what I've seen on a Standard or, e.g., in this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K00Vfzc_mgU In the video it looks much more glossy, Ferrari-like. Is it just the lighting? I mean, the texture in the photo looks beautiful, I'm mainly worried if it's genuine. It certainly looks high quality and the Serial Number checks out to 2012.
  8. Hey guys, lookimg at a couple of SG Standards from the 90's. Any differences in these times? I read all the good year bad year stuff, not sure what to think. One is a 91 the other a 98. This will be my first Gibson in a long time, so other SG suggestions would be great. I'd like to go older than newer I think
  9. Hey folks; I have an SG โ€˜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, itโ€™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 Derekโ€™s signature ๐Ÿ˜›
