If I killed my parents would your dad promise to adopt me.

Ooh, I feel sick even joking about something like that.

Dude, do your parents always spoil you like that? I earn what I've got so I appreciate it more, but when your just given that much equipment for free, you don't really appreciate it. Your dad must think you got a chance in the music world.

What kind of amp?

Lol FAKE. Plus, no MG is $2390, unless you are kidding then in that case, what kind of amp, but this is still pretty shoddy.

Yuck... Faded Gibson and Marshall MG? I'm not jealous at all. That's sad.



He was joking about the MG, but the Special Faded isn't that bad of a guitar, but you have to pick out the right one. Of course, its no Standard.

EDIT: Nice man, one of my former friends (got too much into drugs and ended up selling it for more drugs) had one just like it. He was a little ungrateful and let it get a bunch of scratches on it, but its still a nice guitar.

You're dad needs to get to know tube amps. And I'm not sure where you came up with the $2000 figure. SG = $650ish + Amp = $400ish so that's around $1000. Anywho, have fun with it. Haha. I'm an impulse buyer myself.
#18
Actually, those are the same pups in the SG Standard, but the Standard is better in terms of playability, sound, and looks. But he could go with some Burstbuckers.

EDIT:^^ a Lot of tube amps are WAYYYY more than $400 bucks. A lot of the good cheap ones are like $700-$800, but if he ender up with a $2390 amp, then he is set for life lol.

really? jeez... the only guitar they had better in the whole shop was a les paul and that was $3300. maby mine has something done to it to make it different, because the other guitars in the shop were all pretty reasonable prices and compared to them mine blew them away. like, a squire was 150$, an epi black beauty was 1100$... would those be about the right prices?

I'm pretty sure Gibsons are made in America, so maybe they're more expensive because of shipping or something? No idea.
#24
aww well, i dont really care... for my dad its another story, but for me the price is just bragging rights, i can say "yea, ive got a 2300$ guitar"

yeah, it's crazy how much they charge in Australia for some US products. I couldn't believe the Peavey 6505 combo was over $2000USD there, while it's about $1200US new in the states. You can get them here for $500 used.

I'd kill for one of those, they seem really nice. I have the cheap ass Epiphone G-310, and it's fine for me since I'm a beginner, but the tone is pretty bad.

mate, lemme tell you, 'nice' is a huge understatement!

I was considering one of those for my next guitar. It probably won't be for awhile, but it seems like one of the better ones in its price range.
#31
^^ its definately the best guitar i have ever played (not the most expencive, but taking into consideration its looks and the kind of music i play it is). i would recommend it

meh, you got a real Gibson man, of course it's going to be expensive, especially new. However, it all works out, that also means the resale value there will also be very high. Glad you are happy with it bro, that's what really matters.
