k so you guys all know you never have enough guitars right? well i think it would be cool to have an sg and i heard that vintage guitars are good. so my question is........ is this one any good? i mean i kinda believe that you get what you pay for but im only really looking for whether or not it really is made of solid mahagony and whether the tuners and bridge are good. i know the pickups wont be good but i have a modeling amp so that doesnt really matter right now until i get a tube amp.

probably not solid mahagony, maybe a mahagony body mixed with alder. it seems like they're just calling it a 'vintage' guitar because of it's smaller pickguard. personally, i don't like it. but if that's what you're into, who should stop you?

Thats not a real VINTAGE guitar.
Its a vintage style guitar.
A vintage guitar to me is something more then ten years old.
Vintage is either a description or a company that makes that guitar.

^ well its doesnt really matter because neither are vintage instruments. both of them are made in 2006 probably so their both brand spanking new. epiphone used the term vintage in describing what the instrument looks like and the guitar i posted, the term vintage is used because its the name of the company.

anywho. anyone actually have any experience with the vintage guitar company? are they good instruments for the price?

They haven't got a great reputation, but then again they are quite cheap guitars. I heard the newer models have wilkinson hardware which is good so maybe they're better now.
#13
ive got one, they'd be ok for an absolute beginner but they really aren't very good guitars, the build quality isnt great, the materials feel cheap, the tuners are fairly stable and the pickups sound decent but again nothing special, stick with your strat as this really wont touch it, save up a little and get an epi G-400 if you want an sg

If you're looking for a vintage instrument you need to get something from at least as old as the '70s. That guitar is just for looks.
It's a fine line between clever and stupid.

I think he means Vintage as in the guitars. Vintage make low end electric copies and acoustics. Most of there guitars usually sell for around £100-£180. They may be low end but iv played a Vintage acoustic and they are absolutly fantastic for what they're worth, id say they're the best budget acoustics a musican can get.

Yeah.. My Vintage Reaper has wilkinson hardware, and it kicks ass. Perfect (IMO) for metal.. quite good on clean aswell.

I've played a few "Vintage" guitars, they're really nice for starter/intermediate guitars, try one or 2 out, see what you think of them.

And they've got good hardware on them.

^We're not talking about that...

And I don't think there's a certain amount of time for a guitar to be vintage, anything over 25/30 years roughly. But I would still never say that anything from the 80's is "vintage"

^ agreed, plus it varies with the wood, Mohogany may take 25 years but Spruce may only take 10 because its the best wood at ageing.

about your g-400, im thinking about that guitar too. but my problem is i dont know if i should get the vintage one or the gloss paint finish. its 100 buks more but my mom is buying it for me because of my grades, but then again i would like to be nice a save 100 buks for something i dont need. so what im asking is does your nitage look nice or should i pay 100 buks for the gloss

if you do some searching, you could probly find a vintage (as in age, not the company ) SG for pretty cheap from some old guy/woman who used to play guitar back in the day and has kept it up in the attic in its case for 30 or 40 years
