First time posting here though I've been lurking a while :P
Need some advice really - I'm wanting to get a Gibson SG and I've tried quite a few out recently (standards, 60s, various customs and reissues) and really love the sound and feel of the Standard but I've been patiently shopping for the right one at the right price.
I recently came across one on ebay which you can see here:
Now I haven't tried one with 3 pickups like this and even though I'm fairly confident that I'm going to love it I was just wondering if some more knowledgable people would be willing to offer me some advice - how does it sound? how does the additional pickup affect the guitar overall?
I'm definitely not an expert at all so sorry if I am not providing enough info but here's what I have:
Manufactured in Nashvile TN, now discontinued. Has 3 pickups (Alnico 490T Humbuckers), same as top line Les Paul Supreme. Versatile 6 position switch rotary sellector (Bridge, Bridge+Middle, Middle, Middle+Neck, Bridge+Neck, Neck). Comes with fully functional distressed retro fitted 1980's case.
All original authentic Gibson USA parts
Neck Profile: Mahogany SG Rounded with dot inlays
Peghead Pitch: 17 Degrees
Fingerboard: Rosewood 24 3/4 Scale & 1.695 Nut
Knobs: Vintage bell profile
Machineheads: Gibson Kluson with Ivory Tuners
Since I'm not going to get to try this before I buy it any advice would be appreciated and since I need to respond quickly the sooner the better please!
Also any rough guides on price etc. would be great - according to the listing it is BRAND NEW (MINT) and in messages he has described it as in "showcase condition" which I like the sound of
Thanks in advance,
