Vintage 1967 1968 Gibson SG Special Cherry Red Mahogany Guitar

Vintage 1967 1968 Gibson SG Special Cherry Red Mahogany Guitar

This is the beautiful cherry red faded mahogany version, with the vibrola tremolo system. What is even rarer about this guitar is that the original P90s were upgraded back in the late 60s/early 70s to the PAF ‘Patent No 2737842’ that are widely known as some of the best pickups ever made! What is more, the guitar has been reverse wired to give that out of phase sound! A real killer tone! This is a true players guitar – you’ll not get a better visual look and sound as this one!

Serial number is 887565

Weighs in at a very light 6.6lbs

This guitar has been checked over and restrung, where necessary, to make it a playable standard. To find out more about what our service includes, please check out our terms and conditions before purchasing.

Condition

This is definitely a well-gigged players grade guitar, with plenty of mojo! The previous owner played this for years as his main guitar, hence the upgraded pickups. There is crazing throughout the guitar, adding crazy character to this! There looks to have been a neck break in the past, which has been safely and extremely securely repaired (confirmed by our luthier as a very very sturdy repair – it will not bother you again!). There are also remnants of some additions in the 70s on the back of the headstock. Again, these will not bother you at all! The back of the body has plenty of buckle rush also. Again, this is not a collectors grade guitar but you will certainly not find a better sounding, or looking version of this guitar!

Please have a close look at the high resolution photographs below, as these form part of our description.

Originality 

This guitar has had the P90s upgraded in the late 60s/early 70s to T-Top PAF pickups, hence the professional and clean route at the neck position. The caps have been changed (but original pots) to enhance the out of phase sound. Apart from this, we believe the rest is original.

At The Music Locker we will do all we can for you to get the instrument you want. You’re more than welcome to come along and have a play on this through one of our vintage amplifiers!

The Music Locker prides itself on offering vintage and collectable pre-owned instruments and equipment (the Products).

We take all reasonable steps to ensure the equipment has been inspected by a competent person in the UK to ensure it complies with UK safety standards. This may mean it does not comply with the current standards in the country in which it will be subsequently used. It is the purchasers’ responsibility to ensure it is inspected by a competent person knowledgeable with the relevant electrical safety standards within that country, prior to connecting to any live electrical circuit.

It is the philosophy of The Music Locker to keep all items as original as possible, only changing original components when absolutely necessary. This includes valves, capacitors, transformers, potentiometers, frets, etc. This gives the buyer the option of tailoring to their exact needs, and may mean that the item is not operating at optimum performance levels. Therefore, your personal preference may differ, depending on your circumstances (i.e. collector or musician), and you may decide to service the item in more depth upon receiving.

The Music Locker cannot accept responsibility for any costs of refurbishment to a standard different to the one advertised.
