  1. Hey all, I'm trying to get an idea of what this guitar is and what the value may be. I've never seen an SG with custom inlay or Les Paul tags on it. Can anyone help identify it by the serial number or tell me the value of it? I'm just not sure what I have. Thanks!
  2. Hi! I traded an epiphone les paul, marshall amp and a delay pedal on a gibson SG, the problem is I don't know wich exactely is my guitar model ( I look dumb trading a guitar that I don't know the model but still a good deal). What puzzles me is that the input jack is in the side and the pickup selector key is on the right of the knobs. It has g force tuners, the bridge have some kind of hardware at the bottom, the input jack is a neutrik locking input, and locking straps. I tried contact gibson with 4 different e-mail (sometimes the asked some photos and never hitted me back or didn't answered my e-mails), I also tried the send some messages. I am starting to think I got a "chibson." Thanks, Mateus. (019880332 is the code number, I will try to send some pictures)
  3. So,,got this recently and it was Wine red,,not really my fav color,,so sanded it down to the mahogany and finished w/linseed oil. Not too bad for a craigslist special
  4. My neck volume pot has been scratchy so I opened up the cavity for the first time (aka everything inside has been done by the factory) and noticed something that looked off to me. Shouldn't the braided wire from the switch be soldered to the neck volume pot as well? It is my understanding that the braided wire should be connected to the ground of the switch, and then soldered to all of the pots and finally the ground of the output jack. This is the only pot that it is not soldered to. Does this mean my neck volume pot is not grounded?
  5. Lets see,,whats to do on a sunny afternoon? I know,,Ill play my Epi SG to a Weezer song! Hash Pipe,,not claiming ownership of tune or monitizing it. Just enjoy jammin to a fun band + tune,,and of course,,The Epi SG dosent hurt either. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WI2cdf50xHA
  6. Looking for any/all info...Epiphone double-neck Thanks guys Chris
  7. Hello, I’m seeking the best websites to order parts for my ,02 SG Faded. I need a new pick guard, screws, and humbucker screws. I’m in Canada, so ideally Canadian websites, no sweat if not. Thanks!
  8. Well, the saga of my Epi SG Special has finally come to a satisfying conclusion, and I am finally getting around to posting a "NGD". This guitar arrived with some issues. Fret buzz, and high-E string slippage off the fretboard. With all the Covid-19 disruption, it took Sweetwater a while to give me the "OK" to have the fixes executed at a local repair shop… but I just picked her up at the shop, and she now plays—and sounds—like a dream! Now that she's ready to rock, I present to you all my new 2020 Epiphone SG Special in Faded Pelham Blue! I kept the warranty sticker/plastic coating on the pick guard until I was 100% certain she was a keeper. Felt good to finally peel it all off!
  9. Hi everyone. I have a Gibson Custom 1963 SG Standard in VOS Alpine White with a Maestro tailpiece. I purchased it from Wildwood Guitars in Colorado. Gibson makes a big deal about how accurate their vintage specs are, but I sure don’t agree. I understand why they don’t use Brazilian Rosewood, but do not understand why they can’t get the little details right. The shape of the inside upper and lower cutaways (horns) are not at all accurate, and there are a few odd humps, apparently from whatever CAD machining process was involved in construction. I’ll try to attach a picture. Additionally the fingerboard shows tooling marks from the radius cutter, the fingerboard extension onto the body is too thick, the binding color is wrong (too yellow) and they left masking tape on the short piece of binding on the heel of the fingerboard. That’s not every single thing, but it’s enough to be disappointing when talking about a $3K guitar. I’m 66 years old, and had a couple of originals. The little details may not mean much to some, but these things add up to a lack of attention to detail on Gibson’s part. Don’t tell me how accurate your vintage detail is unless it’s true. Gibson, it’s not accurate. Some of us actually know and care.
  10. I have a Gibson SG bass standard 2019, and I've always felt that its bridge pickup sounds much weaker than neck pickup, even it gets volume all the way up. I noticed just after I got her and I have been anxiety about it since I noticed. Is it common thing for all SG standard basses, or do I need to have her fixed? And for another question... I once dropped her just one or two weeks after I got her, though I got no scars or dents since it has fallen on the a tower of papers and the edge of layered carpets. As you know, if we went through those accidents, we tend to feel like something had changed. I'm not sure, but I need qualifications from you guys who has been through a lot of unexpected accidents that if there's no blemishes on it, it's alright... Or there is a possibility of having crack inside body or neck. If so, I want to know the mechanism how it gets crack inside without any branches on its surface. As you can detect from those sentences, I'm a nervous person... Just as you worrying about your beloved gears. Thanks in advance
  11. 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.

  12. 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.
  13. 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
  14. 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!
  15. 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.
  16. Anyone got info on the Gibson SG 2011 Standard Limited Natural Burst Guitar Center Exclusive model?
  17. 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.
  18. 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
  19. Hey folks; I have an SG ‘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, it’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 Derek’s signature 😛
