Did anyone see this auction?

http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=320531842817&_trksid=e11010.m203&_trkparms=algo%3DCRX%26its%3DI%252BS%26itu%3DSI%252BUCI%26otn%3D4&ssPageName=ADME:B:WNA:GB:1348

I felt very tempted, but someone grabbed it at the BIN price while I dithered. Did anyone here buy it?

What's the verdict guys & girls? Did I miss a bargain? Or did I have a lucky escape?

Mike

Suspect you and the rest of missed a bargain.... Seems a lowish price - perhaps becuase of the paint touch up on the headstock and horn?

One other point that I thought some of you Gibson types would notice - this SG seems to have the infamous fret edge binding. On an SG50?

My 1985 white SG60 has fret edge binding too, on a very chunky neck

I picked this SG up for a friend. I'll let you know more about it when it arrives. The "bleached" looking areas in the finish are indeed mysterious.

Take a look at the photos of the finish under the bridge and tail piece - those areas also look "bleached". I have to assume the color differences under the bridge and tail piece is a function of its exposure to light, etc.

So - were the other areas with the "bleached" looking finish covered up with something too? Wierd.

As far as the fret edge binding is concerned, just because it was listed as an SG50 doesn't mean that it is. It could be a higher numbered model.

looks like a nice one; a nice classic white SG standard

the lighter colored/white areas look like they may be missing some clear coat ................

Just what I was thinking - it must be higher than a 50? Shame you were more decisive than me.

When it arrives, please tell me it has a big fat neck - then I won't feel so bad about missing out on it! The red Tokai SG I bought in the late 80s had a slim neck & I kinda assumed they all had the same sort of neck.

The seller - Chingo - describes a slim neck profile. That's what my friend prefers. I like a bigger neck myself. I got lucky a while back and purchased a 1987 Greco Mint Collection SG Jr. (in white) from Guitargai that has a neck as big any any of the Super Reals I've owned. From what I can gather, a big neck is unusual for that time frame Mint Collections. Another head scratcher.

Hi guys,

I think everyone missed it - including chingo.
The guitar shown is a TSG-60 OW, which is a replica of the Type 1 '61-63 Gibson SG Standard. Whoever did buy got a great buy from the look of it.
The TSG-50 is a Type 4 SG Standard replica from '72.

regards
Peter Mac

This white 84 OW 57 PAF SG60 is exactly my 85 OW 57 PAF SG60 sister. I don't find where you've read "slim neck profile", mine has a big chunky neck, FEB and also the neck joint hairline lacquer crack. I paid mine $420 from USA last year (? - $ was 1.5), was a very good deal too, in mint condition.
I don't know why, but this fat neck is very comfortable.
