Hi Rich. I have a friend who does not participate in forums like this…but does view them occasionally and has seen your V for sale and is interested. If you don’t mind messaging me offline so I can provide his contact info to you…or if you would prefer providing yours to me for him to reach out to you, that would be fine as well. my email address is: hurtwood58@gmail.com. My name is Josh. Thanks.
Let’s meet up to play some rock music in Phoenix!

Hey buddy I have a 67 SG tooo....but the previous owner removed the original volume and tone knobs...the neck is kinda buzzy....frets are worn...but it does sound and play good...wish I had the money to buy it when it was new...any buzzes on the frets and neck of your SG?
Jumping@Shadows wrote on wernerg's profile.
Hi Werner, cool Special man! It would be a useful guitar for me as a TV Yellow sample to try and match, and I could eventually try and refinish the exposed neck area too perhaps..
If you do decide it’s superfluous, I’d be into buying it, so please keep me in mind.
Many thanks, Yuuki.
