  • Should I Trade '64 SG Jr for '78 Les Paul Pro

    What do you guys think? I hardly play the SG. When I do pull it out it is a lot of fun but I don't see myself gigging with it. Now the '78 Pro LP with 2 P90's. I think that will really growl! The SG is the one with only 1 P90.

    As far as value (yes I know it is relative to what I think) I think the SG is about $3k - $3.5k and the LP Pro is in the $2k neighborhood.

    What say you guys?

          The Les Paul Professional doesn't have p90s , they're those weird low impedance pickups

              Ok, thats not it. It may be the Pro deluxe or some animal but it is black and has 2 cream P90s. What is it? Claims to be a 1978

                  I wouldn't do it. The Les Paul Pro, from what I recall, is just another Norlin era take on the LP with P90s. They're decent, but unless you were getting some cash on top, it's a poor trade.

                    The later 70s aand early 80s Pros were very decent guitars

                    The Pro had P90s and the Deluxe had mini hbs..

                      In 1977 bought a 1978 Les Paul Pro that looked exactly like the photo, P90 pups, ebony fretboard, MOP inlay. It was a beauty, but I was frustrated because I could not afford an amp at the time. I traded it later that year for a 1970 Chevelle SS with a 412cu in (rare). However, the rear main seal was shot, so I got the "short end of the stick" on that deal. I rebuilt the engine and had a blast with it. I have seen the 1978 LP Pro sell for $1800-$3000 depening on the condition. They are hard to find.

                    See, now that is complete and I think good advice. My instints tell me that it is not a good trade. Of course if I pick up the LP and it screams take me home...maybe...maybe. But even if I do not play the SG having a 60's piece of history to pass on one of my 3 boys might be worth a whole lot more....

                    I mostly play Tele so the P90 thing really appeals to me.

                        Depends entirely on the condition

                          If you disregard value, straight up IMO I would prefer the Les Paul.
