So I saved up for a while and bought an epiphone g-400, it really is a wonderful guitar, plays so well, great first electric, after playing acoustic for a year and a half
Walked into a pawn shop with the intention of buying a used amplifier, but an older looking Gibson SG on the wall caught my eye. I asked the clerk what year it was because it was priced pretty reasonably. He said he wasn't sure so I looked up the serial number and as far as I can tell it is around a 1964 (I included the serial number in the photos, if anybody else has anymore info on the year I would much appreciate it.) Negotiated with him a bit and he ended up giving me a price I couldn't pass up. No cracks or repairs. Need to change the strings, but plays like a dream!

Am I better off getting a newer Cube or is older a better idea?
