Well someone bought it and didn't even say thanks
You could save yourself £200 for other stuff you don't need and buy the Shine. it is Chinese, an unfriendly colour and generally much less popular than Gibson. so really, for stuff you don't need a much better option.

The 2 will be worlds apart.

These days I'm not so sure about that.


imo, gibson's quality control has gone down the tube over the last decade. if this is a return, someone has very likely had the guitar, decided it's not up to scratch or of sufficient quality, and sent it back. unless you're going to stick it up on the wall to display it rather than actually play it, i wouldn't bother.

if you want to spend around £300 on an SG style guitar, i'd suggest picking up a Vintage VS6 from Richard's Guitars instead - they actually set the guitars up before they send them out, and their quality control is superb:

i've got one of vintage's telecaster copies, and it's superb, fwiw, and i'd have no hesitation buying their sg.

personally, i couldn't care less where the components are from - i'm more interested in the level of quality control and finish. hell, i used to own a gibson les paul gothic - but i sold it and bought a cort z44, and imo it's a vastly better guitar for a fraction of the price.

unless you're looking to sell guitars on down the line, just find one that's nice to play and forget the label on the headstock.

Sound plays a part too

Sound plays a part too


For a guitar, the sound is basically down to how the amp interprets the electrical signal from the pickup. If it's nice to play, it's trivial to buy some nice sounding pick ups and a nice sounding amp, but finding a guitar that *plays* well is much more difficult.

i would suggest the change in wiring from the start to the end of the signal effects the sound. as for playability, with so much variety in the various sizes of the various body parts involved in playing the guitar trying to buy one without holding it, that is online, becomes a bit of a mostly miss situation.
on youtube there are a couple of old american longhairs who compare gibson guitars from the various era's and play them through different amps. even though we get signal compression variation in sound is evident.
