    Welcome to ETSG! Congratulations on getting an SG24... GOOD CHOICE! Tony Iommi wanted an SG with 24 frets early in his career, but Gibson wouldn't make one for him. So he invested in luthier John Diggins and the rest is history. *laughs Gibson finally got around to making an Iommi tribute...

    First Gibson SG , 05 , pics.

    Yes, that guitar is stunningly lovely. And with '57 classic p'ups it is sure to sound lovely as well. No snarky comments about brown guitar ought to be allowed. *grins This one transcends any concept of color preference, and is a unique instrument that should be valued for what it is, and never...

    I give up on Gibson

    Well and so... I wish you well Hector. I am a fan of Gibson guitars, but really, in Europe there are other manufacturers (such as Framus) who ought to be able to fill the demand. I'm sure I don't know about all of the makers in different countries in Europe. I will verify the fact that in many...

    HELP! 2012 Gibson SG 61 Re-Issue Worn Brown

    someone on here will prolly take it off your hands... It's a very desirable guitar that you will truly regret selling. I hope you get enough money for it to help you get through the remorse when you don't have it any more. *Smiles... I'd buy it in a minute except that I have two fine SGs...

    What is your favorite guitar ?

    Do we have to pick just one favorite? In 2019 I sold off all my "vintage" guitars, all my oldest and most valuable instruments. ...for medical reasons. For medical reasons I sold my house, I sold my boat, I sold tools, guns, bike, fishing gear... anything anybody would buy. My lady who had...

    67 SG Standard in exceptional condition

    Welcome to ETSG Your guitar is worth whatever you can get someone to pay for it. If it's genuine and it hasn't been modded it will be worth considerable change. But only if you can find someone who's got major change to drop. Some luthiers will appraise a guitar for a fee. Sometimes you can...

    Help identifying SG

    That's a beauty! Lots of female musicians play SGs, I think the light weight of the instrument makes it appealing to them, because hell, I like my 3 kg SG for the same reason. Don't we all love our light weight SGs?

    I paid 950$ for a Gibson SG Faded 2005!!!

    WELCOME TO ETSG! He's right! The Gibson SG faded special is one of the best. Keep that one and rock that sucker. And don't let anyone steal it. Yours looks genuine from all I can see. Never mind fussing about getting a new guitar. A used SG special is a rockin' machine. The SG Standard has a...

    Here's a weird observation...

    my first question would be: Where's your thumb? IMHO a lot of us wrap our thumbs around the neck and play with a cramped hand. Especially those of us who are self taught. Some guitarists overcome this handicap by raw talent and perseverance. But if you keep your thumb behind the neck, your hand...

    Special Order Gibson sg Color?

    YES! That's the way I'd do mine if I had one. I'd be likely to install all black everything, but that's just me. Black bridge and tail, black knobs, black tuner buttons, etc etc. I just don't like red SGs too well. So the difference between one shade of red and another isn't meaningful for me...

    Special Order Gibson sg Color?

    I think you should just get a black one and unplug the whole issue. *grins Personally I don't care for red SGs... So I think Gibson should offer one in British racing green. Just for the fun of it. But I think the handsomest SG they've come up with recently is the SG naked.

    NGD! 2020 SG Special

    You got an excellent instrument... don't fuss. Enjoy what you got, so many other players get so bunged up, they come aboard here and complain that they thought they were getting a pristine guitar but there's a FLAW on it...OMG! WTF, Gibson! You can always buy somebody else's problems at your...

    Intonation flat on wraparound with no travel left

    follow what the good Doctor says, and use either a pigtail design which is intonatable or use this: https://www.stewmac.com/parts-and-hardware/bridges-and-tailpieces/bridges-and-tailpieces-for-electric-guitar/golden-age-lightning-bolt-wraparound-bridge

    Even good players get anal with new guitars

    If the guitar is new, that's under warranty. A new nut would solve the problem. If it was mine, and I liked the tone and the playability of the instrument, I'd take it to the best luthier I know and get a bone nut made by an expert. You could also send it back to Gibson for a new nut. The...
