    Anyone have picks of 50's LP custom pickguard

    Really beautiful, I could only dream of owning one of these beauties.. The pickguard I had in question was for a two pickup guitar, with my luck it was probably from the 50s which is worth twice the money (if not more) than what I sold it for.

    Thoughts on this Gibson SG 1969 Natural?

    Great I will look into the 2020 reissues :) when it comes to the details I think I want it as stock as possible if it is "newer", probably want a one with the deeper sculpting and the medium vibrola and maybe I will add more personal preferences regarding the pickups later on; when it comes to...
