Buddy offered to sell me his newly-refretted 1980 Gibson SG and a 50W Laney tube amp for 1100.

Is that a good deal?

I guess my biggest question is, do Gibsons age well?

It feels and sounds good, but I dunno how great a new one sounds, so... :p
Sounds like a good deal. Be sure to try both out first.
My Gear:

Washburn WI14 Electric
Washburn D10s Acoustic
Marshall MG100HDFXR Special Edition
Marshall MG412AR Special Edition

Oh and I forgot to say, yes Gibsons age well. Many famous players such as Jimmy Page, B.B. King, and Angus young all use Gibsons and have been since the 60's and 70's and they still sound great and better than new reissues.
