I'm looking at buy a 1993 Gibson SG Special in Olympic white color for $750. Very nice shape. It has Angus Young signature pickup in the bridge and Burstbucker Pro in the neck. I currently have an Epiphone SG (Korean not China) with Angus Young Pickup installed. Do you think it is worth making the jump to the Special? I heard the early 90's Gibsons are some of the best. Any advice would be awesome. Thanks

It's not great deal without an Ebony fretboard or the stock pickups.
If you have a Korean G-400, with same pick ups, there will not be a huge difference.

I guess I should wait until a stock SG comes around. Anyone know how Angus Young pickups compare to a stock set of 498's?

Thats not a deal at all, thats pretty high. You can get SG Specials for $500ish all the time on GC used site.

I highly doubt it'll sound $750 better than your G-400, especially with the same pickup.

i am sure its a nice guitar, but i would't pay a dime over $550 for it.

SG special or faded? $600 tops, not a bit more. You can buy a lot of them new at that price.

At $750 on the used market, I expect an SG Standard series.

I've never personally played Angus Young pickups, but I don't hold Gibson 498s in very high regard. I believe they're mediocre at best.

There's a reason there are so many profitable pickup companies, and it's because stock pickups often leave a lot of room for improvement
