Hey guys, just wondering how much would you pay for a Gibson SG special faded with no pickups? My mate is selling his for AU$700 and not sure if i should go for it or not, it's in almost perfect condition.

Thanks!

Why doesn't it have any pickups? Anyhoo, the general price range for Gibson Specials/Fadeds/Studios/Mahoganys is half the new price + 15% (give or take a little if it's in bad condition/a rare finish/etc). So work out what the price for the guitar was when it was new, then just halve it - since it will cost money to get new pickups obviously, I wouldn't add on the usual 15%.
Yes, I know everything. No, I can't play worth a damn.

He took them out to put into another guitar he built from scratch.

RRP is about $1600, so it sounds like a good deal to me. Thanks for your help.
