I guess it depends how much people want it. I've bought guitars as far away as Scotland and Germany, and apart from needing to tweak the truss a bit, I've never had issues.
I'll just be patient. I'm not selling myself short on this one.
I agree. That'd be a nice guitar, if the condition (frets, etc) was decent. Late 80's, early 90's is considered to be a decent era, quality control wise.
Regarding price, try living outside the U.S... In my currency, my two SGs were both around the 6k mark, after customs, shipping, etc.
This guitar looks like those CME versions. I had the flash on when I took that picture above.
The neck profile is my favorite feature on this guitar. It's like a R0/1960 LP at the nut, but has more gradual girth from the 12th fret upwards. Very unique to the '64 (and '65 I believe). Comfortable...
Yeah I've been thinking my largely analog rig is just better, but I've been listening to YouTube clips, and they're good enough for me.
I was wondering how pinch harmonics translate also, if there's any difference there. I'll definitely need to try before I commit.
