NGD: Went Les Paul shopping and wtf is this? boom shaka laka

OOops. got an another amp today.

Ampeg J-12t. 15 watts, 2 - EL84, 2 - 12ax7. tremolo and spring reverb on board.

sick little tone monster.




the guitar i thought i was bidding on a SG-1000.

then i noticed the brass block the bridge mounts to and the neck joint. (it is a neck though model, not a set neck like lower models which are built more similarly to gibsons)

nice...

checked the serial number, appears to be a 1979 SG-2000.

she's pretty much stock other than the trc and the knobs. it's not pictured here but i also have the original case as well. (and all three latches work!) a friend on another forum linked me to some yahoo japan auctions where i can buy the original knobs and trc so i should be able to return it to complete stock form.

ebony fretboards rule.

i hate gold hardware with a passion, but it works on this guitar imo.










my first guitar was a much lower model Yamaha SG and I always had a soft spot for them.

i've had more than a few gibsons over the years, most recently a R0. this guitar holds its own with every gibby i've owned. (opinion sure, but one that has experience with old and new gibsons of varying models)

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Osljl85z9Yo&feature=plcp
i used a samsung galaxy S3 and a vox da5 amp. lol, going super high tech ftw!


anyway, enjoy the NGD. I also have other stuff to post in here so it belongs in GG&A and not EG, but I only have access to the guitar atm.








oh yeah, i also made a trade for this thing, but i don't know if i'm keeping it.



it's pretty so here's a pic.






plus i got an amp, it's an old tube marshall combo from the 80's with 6v6s, a headphone jack, vintage 30 speaker, built in attenuator bla bla bla.

amp!



marshall studio 15, model 4001. badass at 1 watt or 15, take your pick.

i hate the marshall logo and so did the guy i bought it off of. i have the original grill for it but i'm ok with the one he installed.


oh, i also got more vintage mojo here. bought a cheap $50 acoustic and found this in the case. seems to go with the vintage mojo theme. o_0

i mostly made good trades or buy low/sell high.

like the yamaha, it was listed as a SG1000 and i realized he didn't know what he had.

all is fair in love and ebay.

wow, that combo is pretty plain-jane for a marshall with those kinda options...

and i just read that less than 500 were built. damn. my EA-300 RVT has at least a 1000 copies out there and that is the rarest thing i own. 500, super rare. shame it doesn't have original speaker, and i wonder who they used to supply the 6V6's?
