If you was asking "My opinion" with I am careful not to give if not asked of. Anything Vintage and Old Wood is better and with blow away anything made today. You can have a new Strat built with Brazilian Rosewood Neck. Well it's not 1963 Brazilian, and hasn't aged and Toned up for 55+ years. Your just never going to get it. Right here is Custom Shop Green Wood priced. Just like your brain couldn't know what it does now 30 years ago. Because you had to Tone up, or like me. I LEARNED Every Single. Single thing the HARD way. I never owned a Real 100% 1959 Burst. But I bought a few in my day....:) And you?????
Orig Gibson SG 6-1/2lb Blues Animal right here....Vintage Bell Tone You can't go wrong buying it!
Started life out as a 1966 SG with Bigbsy. The Neck has been replaced with Big Wide one, New Frets, Pat # PAF like the Throwbac Pickups. 1967 Gibson SG Wiring harness (pots,switch,jack). Nitro Finish... Basically a 1966, 52+ year old guitar.. brought back to life. BETTER than it ever was. 6-1/2lb Perfect Sounding/Playing Tone Rocket... Id not offer it to you, if was junk! That simple.. I don't bull.. You will Not be disappointed on this AXE!
I have few pics next to my own 1965 Gibson SG I have owned since I was 16 (39+ years :) That has a Big Wide Neck, this 1966 is Even Bigger! Yes this has orig back cover,but left in shop when taking pictures of the pots.
