1966 Gibson SG Special Cherry Red (w/ Short Maestro Vibrola, OHSC)

In absolutely sublime condition for it's age, you'd be forgiven for thinking this SG Special was less than just a few years old! Made in Kalamazoo in 1966, this SG Special is still as vibrant as ever with next to no lacquer checking and it's original set of absolute ripping P90 pickups. Offered with its original hard shell case, it's not very often a vintage guitar in this condition comes up, let alone one in original condition with no cracks or breaks! This is a serious case queen and is sporting beautiful pre-revision appointments such as the small guard and reflector knobs, as well as a chunkier C profile neck that feels great to wrap your hand around.

Professionally setup with 10-46s, this guitar has had a professional refret at some stage in it's life and is missing one grub screw adjuster on the bridge (which we've replaced with a screw for intonation adjustment). Aside from this, the guitar plays, sounds and is downright incredible. As mentioned before, comes with it's original hard shell case!
