We present a 1963 Gibson SG Special in Cherry Red finish in Near Mint condition.
This SG is all original and has all the early features for this model. It has warp-over bar tail piece, bound rosewood fretboard, 2 x “3 on a stripe” Kluson tuners. There is so much resonance in this 1-piece / lightweight mahogany body. It’s incredibly lively and clear acoustically.
The Gibson P-90’s pickups sounds amazing. They can deliver everything from glassy, articulate cleans to growling heavy overdrive with ease. The 1-piece neck with the nut width 1 11/16 is a joy to play. Overall it’s in beautiful shape with very minor nicks and dings, finish checking, and other cosmetic wear.
Back in the 60’s a high-end Gibson hardshell case was an option when you bought a guitar. Normally chipboard cases were more common, because you could save some money. But here you have the most valuable original case offered with SG Special. The original Gibson black exterior with plush yellow interior. The original latches and handle are also perfect and intact.
Pickups and the electronics/wiring remain untouched and intact, with no broken solder joints, no re-wound pickups. All original and correct.
Neck pickup: 8.17 kOhm
