I was on FB last night killing some time and saw it on marketplace. Too good a deal to pass up. Epiphone SG Special II in Cherry transparent Red for 100 bucks. Picked it up today. 17 year old was selling it to buy a computer for school. Doesn't look like it's been played in months, dusty and strings look like they have a little rust on them. No dents or scratches on it anywhere. That's how I know this thing hasn't been played in some time. I asked him how old it was and he just said a couple years without giving me a specific year, Kids. I see these go for around $175 new and this looks like it could be close to new, so I'm happy. The body is solid wood with a probable Mahogany veneer. I plugged it in and kicked the tires. It works, switch still has that new feel and the pickups aren't bad, but may be a little too hot overwound. The control cavity showed that the 1 volume pot wasn't a mini pot which surprised me, but the real surprise was that the tone pot is a dual gang stacked pot. I tried to pull up on the knob, but it wouldn't come up. It sits a bit high off the body so I tried to push in and it goes in a bit and springs back up into position without clicking. so I don't know what it's supposed to do. Is it a Coil Tap, Coil Split or a mute/kill? I find out tomorrow I guess. It's a dark Cherry Red or maybe a Wine. IDK, but I like it.
