Ones a new guitar day and the other is an old mainstay.

Onto the new arrival first:

I recently went and bought this beauty from Opsguy after wanting another to go with my '65

She's a 62' Gibson SG Special which I'm sure a few of you have already seen and met.

Now the 65' I've had for a while and is currently on its 3rd set of frets, she's seen a hard life and has been a beater of mine for years, even after a headstock repair and neck reset it's still a cracker!

And here's the rest of the family

The pickups are late 50's...which are essentially identical to '62's.

For what it is worth... I put a 64 SG Special on $1 reserve a few months ago after trying to sell at a fair price for ages. It went for $2250. :(

Like yours, mine was refinished. It had a narrow nut, but did have original pickups. Anyway, good luck - hope you get a better deal than I did!

If your trying to raise the cash for my Ibanez JS then I would probably just do a straight swap if you twist my arm :moresarc:

On another note......You think he friedman needs a housing re assesment instead :D

The necks are close to a 60s Gibson profile however the 65 is slightly chunkier than the 62

One would be hard pressed to buy a refinished vintage SG in the States for this sort of money. It's a good deal!
