Re: 1997 USA Gibson SG
I was thinking of messing with the pickups as they are fairly rusty. Also one the tone knobs has been replaced with a non-standard one that although it's the same shape - it just doesn't look right.
It's in a bit of a used condition with a couple of scratches on the back and a very small chip out out of the bottom edge. The only bad thing is it's been owned by someone that's obviously played a few gigs with it, but hasn't taken the time to wipe off the sweat etc after a gig. For example - the cotton material that surrounds the pups was black - but on the top where the palm would rest they have turned a corroded white colour.
Have a look at the headstock logo though - see how the dot for the I is up against the G - When I first noticed that I thought my old man might have been ripped off!
Anyway - so any idea of what these might have been worth in Aussie dollars?
