I have been seeing a lot of Gibson Baldwin SG Signature Series on Ebay recently, has anyone ever owned/played one, and are they any good??
I wouldnt get one. My first guitar was a Gibson-Baldwin LP-style guitar, and its horrible. The neck is ok, i like the shape of it. But the truss rod keeps rattling, the tuners are awful, and the pickups are quite subpar. And if thats anything to go one, i would stay away from em. If you want a cheap SG, Maybe look at Epi's SG Special or G-310.
Used to sell them where I used to work. There is no quality control on those. I saw one that looked like someone took a power saw and took a cut in the back of the neck, and even though it was a giant cut in the back of the neck, they still sent it through.
i also owned a lp style one and let's just say it was heavy as lead and it wasn't that good
just get an epi g400
'13 MIM Fender Strat - '05 Epi G-400
Fender HRD - VHT Special 6 Ultra -
Jet City JCA20H - Mesa Rectifier 2x12
Slash Wah - OCD v1.7 - Red Llama MKII -
Big Muff Pi - Carbon Copy - Phase 90 - Ditto Looper
G400 Definitely, or an Epi Lp standard (plain top version sounds exactly the same compared to the plus-top version)[rant] The G-310= It won't last you very long, and the electronics aren't very good. Not to mention you can't reach anything past the 18th fret, it's not possible, the cutouts aren't deep enough. [/rant]
By the way, Plywood guitars won't A) sound good or B) be of good quality.

You CAN play anything with anything....but some guitars sound right for some things, and not for others. Single coils sound retarded for metal, though those who are apeshit about harpsichord probably beg to differ.
