No, it's in excellent nick, and not very faded, either. It has a bit of a nasty ding on the edge next to the controls, and a weird shallow gouge on the back of the neck, high up close-ish to the fingerboard on the low E side, but nothing that'll make it unplayable. I just wish I knew its history. I bought it from a dealer and they knew nothing really.

Nice SG's OldWood. You stole that 61 Reissue for that price. Nice score.
You have a great amp there too. I think we have some things in common. I too LOVE, LOVE my 61 SG. Mine is a 2009 and I swear it feels like a custom shop guitar. I'm also a C&R firearms enthusiast like you. I still have an all USGI Garand that I bought from the CMP years ago in excellent condition you would probably dig. My username kind of gives me away as a gun guy. Here's my SG and my Orange head. It looks like we are after the same sort of tone. The OR15 sounds great with that cabinet running two Celestion V30s.

I think we would get along just fine man! Something about guns and guitars. Lol I've been trying to find a Garand for years at the right price. No such luck yet! Nice Orange man. I scored my AD30 for.......... $650

I have spent three nights this week with my SG, but didn't play it much. I've been reshaping the neck. I've never played it as much as I should because I just haven't fallen in love with its '59 shape, kinda round and large. Well, after three nights of filing away on the backside, it has slowly taken on a more slender profile. I didn't take it down to the so-called '60s size but it is somewhere between the two. I've been wanting to try this for years, but finally got around to it. I just took it a little at time, and then last night when it was feeling pretty comfortable, it got the sandpaper treatment and then I re-stained it to more or less match the rest of the body. I'm gonna really wring it out for the next few weeks and see if we can establish a real connection.

I currently do not own an SG. I have owned at least 10 or more over the years, they are my favorite guitars. I sold my last one, which was a 2010 Faded, which I added pickup covers and a 498T in the bridge. Great guitar. I bought a VOX SDC55 which is a great guitar, but I still miss the SG. I will buy another soon, probably a standard.
