Description

  • Vintage Gibson SG Special in Cherry finish made in 1967 with Original Chip Board Case. This guitar features a solid mahogany body, mahogany neck and bound rosewood fingerboard. Equipped with a set of original Gibson P90 single coils in the neck and bridge position. Controlled by 2-volume, 2-tone knobs and a 3-way toggle switch. The 24.75″ scale length neck has pearloid dot inlays and 22 medium jumbo frets with a slim taper neck profile. The hardware is comprised of gibson open back butterfly tuning machines, a bone nut, a compensated wraparound bridge with vibrola Tailpiece, and reflector hat knobs with a 3-ply black/white pickguard.

    This guitar is in overall good condition for its age and all original except one intonation screw which needed to be replaced to function. The finish has aged nicely and has lots of finish checking, there is some finish chipping,  light dings and some some scratches/ wear as you would find on a guitar of it’s age. Surprisingly enough the fret wear is not bad at all and very playable still! (see Pics)

    Guitar is freshly setup and restrung with 10-46 strings and includes original chip board case.
