ok so i'm staying at my grandparents for the next couple days. anyways my great aunt called and told my grandmom that anytime i was up here i could come to her house and play the guitar her son used to play. however he doesn't play anymore. i don't know any details yet but i know its a gibson. i dont even know for sure if its an electric or acoustic but either way it would be a major step up from my current rig. i'm praying its a paul but idk. anyways since he doesn't play anymore i'm thinking its a complete waste to have it sitting gathering dust. any ideas on how i can get my great aunt to part with her sons six string???

just ask her if you can barrow it, as time grows see if you can maybe give it a new home.

Just explain your situation, IF YOU LIKE IT, just tell her your current gear is kinda sub-par, and this would be a huge upgrade, and ask her very nicely if you could have it or if you could give her some money for it.

IF YOU DO NOT LIKE IT, DON'T ASK. Chances are, it does mean SOMETHING to her, so don't take it only to let it collect dust in a different place. Just tell her you appreciate her letting you play it.

k so the guitar was a 57' Gibson SG Custom with a bigsby tailpiece and tremolo but i couldn't get it. it was beautiful though and i played for two amazing hours through a 210 watt 4 channel peaven rhythym master 400 i think it was called w/ footswitchable reverb. needless to say it was an amazing two hours the only regret i have is there was no overdrive but it was still fun

The SG debuted in '61, not '57.

no i didnt but i did have the experience of a lifetime at least once everyone should do the four step process to guitar bliss i took. (1) dust off (2)plug in (3)crank it up (4) pick three simple chords (C G Am) to the sweet sound of simple man through the guitar it was meant to be played on.
