Roger,

It looks like we have different aesthetic taste when it come to guitars because I think the front of this guitar is beautiful. I'm not so keen on the back and I wouldn't pay the price but I'd love to have the guitar.

Why is the title Gibson SG Eric Clapton when the guitar clearly is not a Gibson? He should mention that it is a replica. Maybe the seller's deck is short of a few cards.

... YES, it seems so, but I hope you will survive the brute truth !

BTW - it's not what I'm longing for at all!

jawilluk,

... you seem to post all this funky stuff to destroy my confidence in the solid Far Eastern craftmanship ...

... regarding the pic : friends of mine have a toilet lid that looks very similar ...

Thnx - it's great to have a look on extreme guitar finishing ...

Roger

I stumbled across a website a few years ago and for the life of me can't remember the name but you can buy those same designed SG bodies with neck for alot and I mean alot less money than $1000.00. I think you could build the whole guitar for under $700.00.

Nothing else but f r e a k y !!!


... nothing for me indeed !!! After playing such a "thing" you have to have a rest certainly in completely dark, silent room without windows - but with padded walls, floor and ceiling ...
