Hi guys,
I've been offered a trade, I'd like to have your opinion...

What do you think about this 1981 MIJ Yamaha SBG-500 (US name, sold as SG-800S in the rest of the world), near mint with case:



+ 200? (= 160? = 250$) cash

... for this ObG (with gigbag):





... which has a repaired headstock though:



... ?

And, since I'm no Orville expert (basically I know that some were made by Fujigen and some by Terada, and that the ObG ones have USA pickups, and that's it ), any info on this particular one is more than welcome...

Thanks!

Myself, I wouldn't trade that pristine SG for anything with a headstock repair.

Keep the SG. The ObG is a veneer top, and has a headstock repair. I would think that you could do better.

Your mileage may vary..
