New guitar





snowboardalliance
EDIT: for those of you who don't read the whole topic, I already bought it, thanks for your opinions, but please only post if you read what I said later in the topic, thanks.

I'm going to get a new guitar to replace my squire strat soon. Guitar Center has like 30% off sales until the end of August, so I was wondering, should I get this? http://www.guitarcenter.com/shop/product/buy_gibson_faded_sg_special_electric_guitar?full_sku=102935921

I don't want to spend too much, but I want something pretty nice. I figure, you can't beat the price on that. I've tried the SG and I like it, but I want to hear some opinions.

Gibsons are always good guitars. It is definately a nice guitar, if I had the money and the motive, I would buy it. I am quite happy with my guitar though, it is around the same price range.

i really like that guitar, but it is a little out of my price range (by just a little lol Laughing )
so instead, i am probably going to get the epiphone version of that guitar, and maybe put in some new humbuckers when the cash comes around.

Gibson are always good to go for if you have the money, you know you're going to get a first class guitar and if you've already tried playing one then all the better! You know what to expect and because you're buying on the internet you get a good price too.

Thanks everyone, I think I'll go get it then. I was already planning on it but the comments help.

That looks bloody good.
I prefer gibsons over fenders, I dont really know why, just personal preference (plus everyone I know has either a fender or a fender copy)
Yesterday I put a deposit on a black probe les paul copy.

btw where did you find the 30% off on all sales?
i cant see it anywhere, or is it in store only or something like that?

Not 30% on everything, but everything is on some kind of sale for guitar center's 42nd anniversary all month.

Some would say it would be better to gather a little more money and buy the standard instead of faded - but a faded is indeed a good guitar though.

This is actually the guitar that I've been dreaming of getting for the past two years or so! I'm so glad they came out with the faded series, even though it still is around $700. You are one lucky SOB if you get this guitar. Congrats and Rock ON.

Just got it a few days ago. Got a floor model (that's all they had) and it was like $660 out the door with a coffin case. The case is like hard but padded and not too big or wierd looking (better than the bag). The guitar is awesome compared to my strat. I do think that the bridge is a little high but I might adjust it later. Also, the strap button doesn't really hold well near the neck because of the wierd angle your strap goes, so I got strap locks and it works great. The only problem was the first strap locks (dunlop) had too big of a screw for the button on the neck so I exchanged them for Schallers which can use my original screw.

I'm a les paul person myself. If you're looking for something cheaper, possibly even better made, and beautiful you should check out the ESP line. they do alot of guitar copies that are so nice it would blow your mind.

plus they're made in korea so you can get a 2000 gibson for 700

If you like it, go for it! You, and only you have the final word when buying an instrument. You should feel comfortable with it.

Hi everyone!

I've got a '97 standard sg, and I think the faded sg is a very expensive guitar made with the worst Gibson's mahogany wood, and finished like a toy.

With that money you could have bought a good japanese guitar (Tokai, Edwards...), which are very well built nowadays...
