    :help:OK I have a Gibson SG Bass and I keep seeing this one that looks just like the Gibson SG but is called a Gibson SG Dickey Betts bassa and it is priced at $6999.99 new and I have seen some used in the 4k region. What is the deal with this Dickey Betts, does it play that much better than the regular SG that it is worth all that money? Anyone know what they have done to modify it for that price?

    :hyper: I might have to get one if they are really that good, but it had better live up to my expectations.

    Learn your history dude, before he played a LP, he played an SG. Memorialized in song by Charlie Daniels, "Dickey Betts pickin' that red guitar." LMAO!!!!!!
