Here we have a rare Gibson SG Deluxe, a lesser known Gibson SG model that was produced during 1970s only. It sports the usual SG shape made out of mahogany, with a set neck and rosewood fretboard. The fret-markers are block and made out of real mother of pearl making this an attractive guitar. It plays superb and with its factory fitted Gibson Bigsby, it made for a variety of playing styles. The guitar is a great player as well as a looker and lives in its chainsaw hard case.
