Just got my hand on this last night, a 2008 Gibson SG 61 reissue, got it for $1399 with case/leather strap/new set of strings.







the action was a little high but it has been sitting in the local shop for over a year and a half so the string were in need of replacement, as i was changing the string anyway i figured id give the frets a polish and aply some fretboard oil and wipe the whole thing down. Shes a beaut. Plays great with the lower action, the 57s sound pretty damn good with my orange. This is my first actual Gibson so im really exited about it haha.

Piano dick had some good parts, but should have said "As the business man slowly gets boned", would have accented the whole dick feeling of the album

This is terrible advice. Even worse than the useless dry, sarcastic comment I made.

Nice. I had a 2006 up until a few years ago. Great guitars. You could've gotten a brand new one at GC for $1270 right now though. Though yours has the solid RW board instead of the laminate so it's a bit of a draw.

Is this technically considered a Les Paul?

a '61 is technically still a les paul.

but why gibson put a '70s norlin headstock on a '61 RI i'll never know.

great guitar though, congrats!

I don't think I've ever played anything in black walnut. It's a great ice cream flavor, so I assume it works well for a strat too.

The slugs in the pickups for telecasters are from old winchester rifles, which is why they sound so country.

Congratz on the guitar. Real beauty, but I'm afraid your celebrating too soon. You see...I have this great pashion for SG's, and now that you've bought a 61 reissue, I'm going to have to take it away from you. Essencially, stealing/theft is the plan. : )))))))))))))))

You got lucky this time...I'm left-handed so I might just wait for someone to drop up with photo's of a lefty SG. But I'll be watching you..
