NGD! 43 Year Old Gibson SG Special!!

Post by BLS » Wed Oct 27, 2010 10:46 pm

Still Can't believe I own it! 1967 (same year I was born) Gibson SG Special!!! Unbelievable condition, 43 year old all original classic!! The P-90's in this freaking sound AMAZING!!!! I will take some better pics tomorrow! SO freaking HAPPY!!!!!!!!

I got this off a friend that started buying Gibson guitars from the (50's - 60's) over 25-30 years ago (has around 40 vintage Gibson/Fender guitars as well as some killer amps from the same period). He paid $250.00 for this guitar 22 years ago :rollin

Anyways:

I believe you may have found Excalibur there :D
That is a beautiful guitar and looks like it is in just as beautiful shape.

Wow! That's about as good as it gets. I'm hoping to score an SG Classic one of these days if I can find one. Gibson needs to hire someone to overhaul their model-naming procedure :D .

Nice one! That's beautiful! Are you keeping the vibrola on there or taking it off? I have a 68 SG Jr that had that too, and I took it off and put on the compensated bridge:

Insanely hot, an SG with P90s and a bound neck is probably one of the few guitars I'd ever buy now that I have my jag. Congrats!
