Just finished looking at a 2005 Gibson SG reissue.. The sellers father passed away, he ended up with it. I comes with the correct case, no paperwork, no tr wrench, The bass has the usual dings and nicks, nothing bad, just surface scratches, and a few small dents. One thing I did notice, was that there seemed to be a crack that was about 1/4 inch long from the back of the backplate out and down the side of the bass, about 1/8 of an inch.Looked like more than a finish crack to me. The instrument was set up nicely, played well, although I was unable to plug it in.... He is asking $ 800..... He wanted me to make him an offer, I told him I was unsure as to what I should do! Im thinking $500? Its not a faded series.... its the regular reissue SG. Im not looking for a museum piece..... just a good old short scale Gib to bang around on? What to do? Let it rip people!!
