Is this a fair trade? LP Studio for SG Standard

I have a Gibson LP Tribute 60's and have been offered a straight trade for a 2011 SG Standard. Is this a fair trade? Assuming that it is fair deal should I be concerned that the guitar has had aftermarket work done and has been reliced?

relic'd? home-brew relics can be trouble. yes. i'd say it's of some concern. if you want to dump it off in the future, consider it non-original and dinged all to hell instead of relic'd.

It was a great deal till you mentioned the relic. You'd have to look at it, but probably not. Used Standards in great condition are pretty cheap.

Did you ever own an SG?
I can't play them - my right arm really clamps on the guitar, and I am doing "Neck-bends" all the time. not in a good way. Does not happen on my LP Studio, or on my old LP Custom.
The relic thing scares me too.

I'd be concerned with the aftermarket work and relicing. Other than that if both were in excellent used condition Id say the SG is worth a tad more than your guitar.

Unless the relicing looks like it was dome by someone with skills like Murphy I would also say no. Aftermarket relicing can greatly reduce the value of the guitar.
