Gibson SG Special (1968, Cherry Red)

Here a great vintage guitar from the Gibson stable, a 1968 Gibson SG, body and neck made from mahogany, the guitars ports the usual double-cutaway shape with bevelled edges. Great playing guitar, great resonance and sustain. Dark rosewood fingerboard with mother of pearl dot markers. The guitar is kitted out with a short arm knife tremolo system. Guitar is finished in gloss cherry red nitrocellulose, faded over time oozing a vintage feel.

Pickups are quite powerful  P90s, and give off a great tone when played over my Hughes & Kettner. Tone and volume controls have the classic configuration of an independent volume and tone control for each pickup and a standard three-way toggle switch. Adjustable bridge and aftermarket Grover tuners. The neck is simply bound with cream aged binding, control knobs are black top hat style with silver volume and tone inserts, an ’60s five-ply large black plastic pickguard, and traditional “bell” truss rod cover.
