All right folks, I created a thread earlier this (or last) week to ask for what guitars I could get, and that I would buy it around december.
Today, as I walked into my favorite music store, I looked at the guitars and started playing with them. then, just for fun, I looked at gibson guitars.
Les pauls, around 2200, made me sad. SGs, around 1500, too expensive..
then I see this one. hehehe... 799
At first I thought it was a new model or something
actually it was used
it was an SG special with shiny pickups. My guess is that the previous owner changed them or put some covers or something... so just for fun, I plug it in
and I love it. I mean, I love the tone I get with it, I love the feeling of the guitar, I love its look, the weight, everything. I needed the guitar lol...
the thing is I had no money. So I am going to pay a bit of it every month.
it was worth eveery penny.
and then I realise that he put some grovers in it. even better =D

so now I have an amazing guitar that I love and that I didn't even pay a lot.
there's only one tiny flaw, a small dent on the headstock, but nothing too bad.

Nice guitar.

Those strings are wound pretty badly though, restring it or risk loss of tuning stability and sustain.

thanks all =)
no fight in my thread guys, this guitar is still pure and innocent, and i'd like to keep it that way... even though i can't even know what it's previous owner made it go through, after all, he still changed a few parts in it...

she's still a virgin though, isn't she ?
#23
^yeah, that's what the guy before changed, i should take the pickups to look at what they are actually, i put the guitar side to side with a standard and it sounded the same, which is why i assume he just added covers to the pickups

if anyone's interested, i ran the serial number on the guitar dater project, it's a 2006 :-)

The 1st and 5th digits determine the year a Gibson was made, except for vintage and new production models. Out of curiousity, what is the serial number of this SG?

It looks great, the only thing I don't like is the colour. Never was a fan of brown SG's.

I agree completely.

HNGD man, it's always great when you find one that realyl fits you well.
#30
That is a sweet buy, congrats man. Now that I think of it I have never played an SG I have played a few Les pauls and even owned one and it was too fat and heavy for my liking so I kinda wrote off Gibson/Epiphone
what kind of palm muting is best for metal?
cut off some guys hand and place it under the strings. brutal low end bro.
#31
^i wasn't a fan of Gibson anymore actually, I had tried a few SGs already and didn't like most of them, so it came out as quite a surprise that I liked this one so much...
I just bought a pack of strings, so I'm going to restring her! the strings were quite badly put as you can see in the first picture, and they didn't sound great, I'm guessing they were quite old (flat tone when unplugged)

To be fair it is a bit annoying to see "NGD!!!!" or "I'm going to have an NGD in a month"

Whatever happened to "I'm going to get a guitar" or "I have a new guitar"?

Either way. Congrats man, it's a nice one
Play it well.

^either way, i'm not even sure it's the cherry one, it might be the worn brown, since it darker than what i think the cherry is lol...
and sorry, i could've said ''i got a new guitar'', i just didn't really thought it would annoy somebody since well, everyone writes it this way
