    2013 SG Price Fair

    You did well considering even in Canadian dollars $1500 US would be $1900 today. However that was 2 years ago so I would hazard a guess that you might have paid slightly more now considering inflation and COVID making it harder to get goods when we want them. Nevertheless you did well and I hope...

    Price for 1967 SG Special

    Well this story ends here. Bought the 2013 SG Original with Lyre tailpiece in heritage cherry for $2,400 cash (no tax) plus threw in after much back and forth…an $80 Pearl Snare Stand I needed, and a set of strings and 2 fender pics ha ha. Previous owner was a collector so it was virtually...

    Thanks Decadent Dan. He did say if it didn’t sell he would let me have it at my offer but I am not an optimist. If I do get another crack I will let you know. Maybe look at the 2013 SG Original with Lyre tail piece again for $2,399. If I pay cash I know the owner well enough that he will not...

    He is not selling to me. Going after the lucrative USA market as his friend feels he will get more than $4,500 Canadian. Serial # 004357 white painted pickup covers and poker chip. Please let me know if you see it on Reverb. Offered $3,500 but he wants more. His friend will get 10% for selling...

    Yeah the guy was too tight to drop $100 on an appraisal so he weasled a ROUGH estimate from a picture. He did forward the guys email telling him $4,500. If he wants more than my offer I will demand he spring for a proper appraisal in writing. I did have the guitar for a couple years and he has...

    2013 SG Price Fair

    Well for those of you that asked I follow up about the 1967 Special SG…the guy emailed a music store and by picture alone they estimated the guitar to be worth around $4,500 Canadian…that’s $3,520 USA for my American friends. That is provided he put back original heads and remove the white paint...

    Point taken about the currency. Here in Canada when I go to Reverb I can toggle from USA dollars to Canadian. And your point about trying it for neck preference is also sound advice. Personally I have been fortunate enough to own 9 or so guitars with a variety of neck carves and like you I am...

    2013 SG Price Fair

    Even though I had the 67 years ago for quite awhile I don’t recall much. The 2013 at my local music store I just saw today and everything is closed. I have to wait on an asking price on the 67. If it’s crazy high I will pass but at least for now I am hoping it’s under 3 grand Canadian...

    2013 SG Price Fair

    No I don’t need a Vibrola. I am just on the rebound from waiting for a pice on a 1967 Special. The guy is supposed to get it appraised at Twelfth Fret in Toronto Canada and this COVID is putting a damper on it. After I told him I was looking at this one the 2013 suddenly he is going to move a...
