I thought you'd never ask. Lol.
The inlays aren't at all convincing and not the traditional pickguard layout but it's a set neck so thought I'd give it a kit car try.
It resenbles a '61-'62 reissue...except for the flame.

Coming soon.



Another set neck. Same low dollar fret inlays, but it's just a replica.

TMI.
But was it a virtual hookup?

My real Gibson SG's inlays.


My replica inlays. Pretty ugly.


Today you can buy a straight-up counterfeit Gibson from China correct in every way for a few hundred dollars.
And it's probably made in the same factories as name brand versions. Gibson quality has dropped to the
point that you frequently have to send a new one off to be corrected so, what's lost and what has been gained can be argued.

That's a kit? That's cool, I didn't realize there were SG kits. I built a Strat kit.... It was fun to build but considering I can barely play a note, it makes a better doorstop than a musical instrument. I just don't have the right shaped fingers to make chords without touching various other strings.

I'll probably end up in some sort of special Fender Hell for putting that reproduction decal on the headstock....

It's not really a kit, just meant it'll look right from a distance or glance like a kit car.
They do make kits though, I think. Saw something last night searching for a template.

The real Fenders are probably silk screened so a sticker doesn't bother me. Plus all the serials and MADE IN USA isn't there.
Gotten lucky enough to find real Gibsons and American Fenders over the years for good prices.

That's a nice color choice. Looks good. Looks real from here.

Beautiful Guitars....I am terrified that at some point my G' is going to need new frets.....And there is NO reason for me to spend the money because I could be SUED for what I do with the guitar.

My favorite guitarist is Brian May of Queen....That was why I was into them (Yes, Freddy has a great voice). Brighton Rock was one of my favorite songs tho I usually FF'd thru the beginning to get to May's echo jam. I have my own Echo jam- but I cannot do what he did (Layering)....I use the echo for odd sound effects.

Always really liked May's Guitar- He and his father MADE the guitar...and it has actually been x-rayed and MRI'd to see why it sounds the way it does.

There are copies but A) Not in 1982, and B) Not that I could afford, so I bought an Ovation- a SOLID-body Ovation, called a "Preacher"...Did not realize I had bought THAT good a guitar until I got a computer in 2000 and checked out some guitar review sites- this guitar rates very highly....

So, along with having Guitar-player hands...There is absolutely no reason why I should be playing so.....Poorly (The neighbors call the cops not because of VOLUME, but because of WHAT I am playing)

LOL That's a good point. I can picture my family trying to sell it for good money after I'm dead and buried, but it's easy to see it's just a decal. It won't fool very many!

Funny I have owned several guitars for the last 30 years, and while I know my share of chords and have pretty good hand coordination, it just never clicked.
I love playing the guitar but I play for my own enjoyment.

This was a close out when I got it, I like it but it still has that new guitar feel.
I need to put some wear on it and break it in.


The amp is a Fender Mustang and also is not for sale any more. The app that came with it was great until 3 months later they discontinued it.
Lucky I found a zip with a **** load of presets so I don't have to spend time ****ing with it, just search for the band name and load the effects.
Its ok for around the house and just loud enough to piss off the woman next door.

So, you assembled a guitar? I've checked this thread several times thinking there would be an explanation of some sort.
Sorry, I'm not into music like some on here.

Gibsons are expensive guitars. He took a less expensive guitar and modified it to look more like a Gibson. Hence, the kit car reference.

In the first two pictures, he shows how he modified the top of the headstock to follow the Gibson profile known as the "open book" style.

Back about 50 years ago, some Japanese manufacturers were selling guitars that very closely resembled Gibsons. Gibson sued and the "counterfeit" guitars were not allowed to copy the open book headstock, at least for US sales. These guitars are now known as "lawsuit era" guitars. The current Chinese Gibson copies are known as "Chibsons".

Counterfeit guitars are common enough that Rickenbacker will not sell some parts such as the tailpiece unless you can prove that you own the guitar and show the broken part.

Hover? You mean it’s repelled by the earth because of its “beauty” ? 😂

Do you guys remember the raid on their factories by Obama’s DOJ? Well it seems little Gibson has made a new model from
the seized wood.

Sure, but I get to pick the route and the altitude. Ever done NOE? You will in this race. Remember, if you can be seen, you can be shot.

Similar to the renowned bumble bee, it shouldn't be able to fly and yet is one of Mother Nature's beautiful innovations.

As is often said, it takes a "Special" person to take a broken aircraft up to verify that it's actually broke. Didn't say that person had to be real bright.

I remember that. It pissed me off. There was no reason to handle it the way they did. I don't think it had anything to do with "endangered species". Somebody was sending a message. The Obama administration was is nothing but a bunch of mobsters.



But I am prejudiced. I am a much bigger fan of Gibson than I am of Obama.

That's a good buy for sure..

I ended up getting rid of mine, i just didn't like the big fat neck SG's have.

Traded it in (with some cash) for a nice Gibson Les Paul Studio.. (which i also no longer have, lol)

I went through a ton of different guitars before i finally found the 6 that i have now, and love.

I got a Gibson Les Paul, red sunburst

a 76 Reissue Strat

a Fender "Fat strat" that i fully customized.

a B.C. Rich S1 prototype (strat style body)

And a Parker Fly night fly..

Then i have a Penco Acoustic guitar. (Penco is what the company was called before they changed it to Ibanez)

Wow, good stuff. The Parker Fly is one you never see around here anymore. The Gibson I really want is the 58 Vee reissue, not the 67.

Haven't been able to find a deal on a Les Paul, but I keep looking. They go fast. If it's not a deal I don't buy it.
The SG has a serious finish check that looks like a neck crack and that scared the shop when they bought it. So the price reflected that.
Bought it and took it straight to a luthier to evaluate. He blessed it. Said it doesn't follow the grain and doesn't open like a crack when he twisted it.
He suggested blending it with nitrocellulose lacquer if it remains stable. So far no change.

CLICK FOR FULL SIZE



That would have scared me off.

I can't afford Gibsons so I have Epiphones and Squiers. The only expensive guitars I have are a Zum steel and a Ric.

yeah looks like someone dropped it, and it cracked the finish on it.. As long as the wood is good, your fine..

My fat strat has a bunch of cracks like that where the neck meets the body, its all just the clear coat cracking, not a big deal.

Yeah the Parker is a really fun guitar, its tone is really amazing and crisp, especially with those d'addario pickups, it also has a phase shift built in so you can switch the pickup from single coil to humbucker.. and of course the sensors on the tremolo that make it sound like a hollow body acoustic (sorta, its not perfect, but sounds good) Plus being made of carbon fiber, the guitar basically weighs nothing.

Ya mean like diving at hydro wires to get a picture, drop the controls, grab the camera, fly with your feet, pull up and hope to god you can do it all fast enough before the airspeed bleeds off ? I brought back 4 different Cessnas with wrinkled wings <oooppppsssss>

"Not that bright" Just kinda comes natural around fligating machines.

Hold ma beer and watch this.

Late to the party, but that's purdy!
I wouldn't mind owning an SG - even a copy, and I can barely play a note.

Care to share a link?

I've got a few. None really worth picturing.

A black Epiphone Les Paul Special that I bought for $60, because the electronics were "bad, someplace". (I do electronic stuff for a living, so it will be fixed.)
A Peavey Strat copy. Meh.
An ancient Univox bass. A sort-of copy of a Fender Precision.
A Kingston copy of a Hofner "violin" bass. Really a piece of crap. Got it 50 years ago. Might even be a counterfeit.

Nap of the earth? Ha. Try 200 feet at night at 510 knots with every Iraqi gunner trying to kill you. They called the F111 the whispering death because by the time you heard me fly over the bombs were already in flight. And you can’t run that fast.

TBH I respect helicopters and their crew. Many a downed pilot praised them for being rescued.

Mechanically I can finger a guitar and produce a note, I can afford to play that guitar but for the life of me I struggle to get music out of it.

The music I am chasing doesn't come from a guitar, but its the medium that I can afford.
The closest I can come to music I enjoy is when I start my car and listen to the symphony of the moving parts. That exhaust note.
For the life of me I wish I could play in that band. I just can't afford those instruments so I play with those I can.

If close is all I can get then that is what I will continue, but chasing something is where the real music is at.

You flew F111, Hudini?

Raydar, I look for cheap set-neck guitars for the $60 to 150 range that look like Gibsons. The goal is to make wall hangers that fool the eye.

I can't play more than a few songs, poorly. Can't justify expensive real ones. I think $600 is the most I've paid for a real one but it's worth more. Ibanez bases from the 90s made in Fujigen plant in Japan were what I looked for but they're all gone now. The SR800 was a favorite I had.

That SG, man, just feel lucky to have seen it first or I wouldn't have one. It's the one I was looking at when some guy walked in saying a worker called him to come look at it, since it just came out of pawn. The crack looks gnarled, but doesn't appear to be wood cracked.

My favorite pawn shop for Guitar finds just had an Epiphone Explorer I wanted, set neck, but was 330. Sold today I guess. Gone. Might get lucky if someone did a lay away and loses it. Price will be cheaper.

I've got a Saber style Ibanez project going.

Back around 1968, I bought a Japanese 335 copy, a Mayfair DeLuxe at a shop in Daytona for about $125. My parents loaned me the money and it took a few years to pay it off. I traded it away about 10 years later. That was a mistake, it was a good guitar.

Here is a picture from 1971 with my grandfather holding the guitar. That is a 16 year old Willie tuning the 12-string.
