1968 Gibson SG Standard in Cherry Gloss

This is a pre-owned 1968 Gibson SG standard, featuring an all mahogany body in a cherry gloss finish. We believe this guitar to be largely original, (original frets, pots, patent number and pickups) but the switch tip appears to be aftermarket due to the unaged color and the piece had been converted to a hardtail, but has been converted back by our in-house luthier, who also removed the studs, plugged the holes and touched up the finish. 

The neck is mahogany with a rosewood fingerboard at a 12" radius, 22 frets and mother of pearl trapezoid in-lays. Nickel hardware, Kluson tuners and a Maestro vibrola tailpiece round out the profile. Dual volume knobs, dual tone knobs and a three-way toggle offer up practically endless sonic options. 

Overall the guitar is in good condition and has undergone a full setup and inspection. Cosmetically, the finish does have some imperfections - the face and the body exhibit a smattering of small dings and the back exhibits a heavier amount of buckle rash. There is a scuff on the back of the neck near the heel and a scratch further up, an amount of playwear on and around the back plate and an amount of small dings on the back of the headstock. Most notable is a large finish crack adjacent to the control knobs, all of which can be seen in photos.  Comes with original hard shell case.

 

As always this guitar ships fully insured with signature required.
