Anyone want a nice SG? I have a very handsome 2011 Standard Limited for your consideration.

Limited? Yes, limited. Aside from the super cool Aged Cherry finish, the most awesome thing about this is that it has a fat neck! Yep, an SG with a fat neck. Not quite full 50s baseball, but it is decidedly chunky. It also has a baked maple fretboard, which is actually quite cool. This particular one is nice and dark, and feels like ebony. Soundwise it has a bit more spank than rosewood.

I did a bit of messing with it: replaced the PCB wiring with a regular harness, 50s style, and gave it a bone nut. All improvements in my book, but you know, one man's upgrade is another man's butchery.

Pickups are stock 490/498.

Condition is very good overall - couple of chips in the finish, nothing major. The case is a little the worse for wear - it suffered some water damage. Thankfully the guitar was not it at the time. Bit of discolouration on the lining, but otherwise it is solid.

$1250 plus shipping.

I would be happy to sell this for $1300 with the stock pickups (498/490) instead of the Fralins. I reckon the Pure PAFs are well worth it (they cost me around $350), but just putting the option out there.

I could probably afford to buy the strings

Fucking hell. $1200 for a perfectly good SG Standard. What is the world coming to... I swear $1500 was the norm not a year ago. Shouldn't complain too much - I didn't pay much more for it (though I did pay more).

Just bad timing? Or is the market for 2nd hand Gibsons tanking? :?

There was a cool black one with extra frets that went a couple of weeks ago for a similar price.
