2021 Gibson SG Standard
The guy says he’s the first owner. All stock. Excellent condition. But no case. It seems strange that he would buy this in 2021, but have no case for it. That’s the only red flag I see.
And what do you think would be a fair amount to offer?

It looks like a nice guitar from the pictures. Perhaps the original owner decided to sell the factory gig bag, or use it for a different guitar. Who knows…? Can you play and/or inspect it before making a purchase?

He said he doesn’t have time, and just wants to sell it like normal Reverb, where you pay, and then instead of shipping, it’s a local pick up. It kind of makes sense. Then he doesn’t have to deal with multiple people coming and going. It’s worth the Reverb fees to him I guess.

The price ain’t bad and the listing states a 7-day return policy (whether the seller knows that or not)
I guess if it has something weird going on, you could refuse it and request a refund.
Definitely use some form of credit for the payment in case something is off.

Looks nice to me. And I second the possibility that the gig bag that came with was sold, I've known a few people to do that. However, it was usually after they bought a hard case. This seller could have done that, but doesn't want to part with the hard case.

Yeah, but it seems like it would still have the baby photo and the inspection sheet if not the Allen wrench and truss rod wrench. It made me think maybe it was stolen, but then he probably wouldn’t put it on Reverb with the serial number showing.

I don't see anything that looks hinkey, just a nice looking used guitar that appears to have been well taken care of. Stolen stuff usually gets "disguised" in some way that would constitute significant modification, and this axe shows no signs of any such thing. Missing accessories ("case candy" etc.) are par for the course with most of the gear I can afford to look at, so again not a concern. Basically you should be buying a nice gently used guitar with this one, and once you get to hold it in your hands and play it you should be able to quickly verify that it is what it appears to be.

It was stamped 2 weeks before my Junior.
I’ve seen several nice ones from that time period (mid-‘21). I wonder how much it weighs?

I'm pretty sure that guitar was sold new without a Hard Shell Case....I got a 2020 SG Standard and it came with Pleather Hag-Bag, a disgrace of a case really...1st thing I did was buy a proper GIBSON USA Hard Shell Case for it !
