Depends what you want from it. Functionally, they're both exactly the same. You'd only be paying the premium for the standard for the trapezoid inlays, pickup covers, binding, etcThese guitars are pretty rare and expensive to come across, but the Standards are very pricey. For those that have one or both, what's the main difference in them. Is the standard worth the substantial price differential?
Yeah, both have 490s. The cherry Special is the same year and spec with dot inlays. Both are great guitars, but due to a fire while it was in storage, the finish on the brown one got a little baked and the neck is frictionless.Did that come with 490s in it? What's the other SG to the left?
I didn't really catch this until I looked at your pic papa, the standards have 22 frets and the specials 24. Have you replaced the G force with either the Gibson Deluxe or Kluson Revolution? Did/does it have serious neck dive before or after?
