I have a 1971 Gibson SG. It has a rather slim neck. It's a natrual brown finish. I'm pretty sure it has a rosewood body. Creme edges on the sides. It has a small pick guard just like on the Angus Young signature SG. Mint condition. How much is it worth?

Maybe a few thousand? I don't know the typical value of Norlins, but I would say... if in mint condition somewhere in the $2000-$5000 range? (Big range I know)

Something like that would be worth quite a bit.

There is one on ebay for 3,000.

From your description, I'd estimate it at probably $3,200-$3,800.

Norlins aren't particulary favorable by many because a lot of Gibson's guitars during the 70's weren't top notch quality. Some say they were just slabs of wood glued together, this making them less desirable. However there are Norlins that are very desirable, like Les Paul Customs for example. If you have a mint 1971 SG and it plays good and everything is perfect with it, theres no doubt in my mind you won't get $3,800 easily.

Pics and serial numbers would help.

SGs are not really pulling in big dough, 2K to 5K I wish!

I have been trying to sell two vintage SGs for months and just can't get people to meet my price and it's low. One is an 73 SG3 w mini humbuckers dot inlays 1 vol 1 tone. The other a 79 SG Exclusive only 478 produced. Both guitars are mint with original cases. The highest price I was offered was $1300.00 for the Exclusive. I have had them on Craig's list and in the classifieds a few calls and 1 or two very low ball offers no real buyers.

Gibson SGs are made of mahogany except for the new "Zoot Suit" SG, which is a laminate of some sort. Also, SGs aren't bound, so when you say it has creme edges, do you mean that it was a creme-colored guitar that has had the top refinished to natural?

If it has been refinished, it would affect the price. But Gibson SGs are great guitars, so unless you are strapped for cash, I would recommend hanging on to it. I sold my SG years ago and wish I hadn't.

^^ As far as I know the Zoot Suits are made of Birch Ply or something, which is plywood.
Just looked it up, laminated birch.

As for this guitar... I really wanna see it.

Yeah, this being opposed to a Garcia-style 'Hippie Sandwich' laminate which are known for bringing out the best qualities of all woods used.

Rosewood body you say? That might be something.
