All original Gibson Sg Special in a walnut finish from 1972! This thing sounds awesome and is truly underated. The pickups are actually extremely similiar to the bicentennial firebirds, they are a mix of gibson and strat tones. (seriously!) Its in awesome condition without any repairs, breaks, cracks, neck distortion, its all there. The walnut finish gives a cool vintage vibe and still retains its original sheen. The neck is a narrow 1 9/16th nut width with a slim 60's neck, meaning it fills out your hand but is nowhere near a baseball bat (0.82" at the 1st). I really love these specs because Im used to strat necks and i have smaller hands so I love this piece I can play it really easily and feels very familiar. The neck is 3 piece mahogany and the indian rosewood has an awesome grain pattern. The body is a 1 piece mahogany thats uber light weight and looks so cool, acoustically it has a ton of midrange which translates so well into the amp. This thing really sounds like a mellow combination of gibson and strat especially in the middle position. Its a very unique sound and a rare find for something so old in such good condition, snag it before its too late!

To top it off, you're getting a full inspection, deep clean, and setup, a 75$ value free!. Every guitar we sell goes through our tedious checklist to make sure it plays better than it did brand new! You can expect it to make smooth like butter across the neck, perfect action, intonation, and most importantly, absolutely no buzzing, neck problems, neck distortion, breaks, or scratchy electronics! Setup with fresh 10's thanks for looking!

Condition: Amazing shape and truly a rarity to find an old gibson without any repairs/issues! Slight worming on the back and some lacquer thats checking, otherwise nothing much to write home about, 1 or 2 little impressions on the top and around the peg head, nothing on the neck. Clean!

All original pat sticker pickups and pots that date to 1971. A little dusty in there some contact cleaner was used to clean it up a bit. Original Solder joints. No scratchy pots!
