SOLD Vintage 1972 Gibson SG Special
Modded from Mini HB to Humbuckers
Gibson '57 Classics
Plays Great, Sounds Amazing!!
Up for sale is a fantastic, vintage 1972 Gibson SG Special. This is a player's grade guitar, and it has been modded, and improved upon from the original Norlin version by 1) removing the Vibrola, 2) removing the Schaller accordion bridge, 3) routing from Mini HB to Gibson '57 Classics, 4) tuners upgraded to Schallers, 4) strap button relocated for better neck/body balance.
If you can get past these improvements / upgrades, this is a fantastic sounding, and great-playing rock machine!! The tonewood used in 1972 is killer-quality, and it has been aged now for 45 years, and the guitar resonates, sustains, and just sounds fantastic. The '57 classics also sound fantastic in here -- and even if you are not a fan of these PUPs in other guitars, in vintage SGs they are amazing.
The 3-piece neck is 1 9/16th", and is very comfortable. It has a nice, medium profile, and plays very naturally and easy. It is a true joy to play. This guitar is a fantastic way to get in to the vintage Gibson vibe without having to paying a ridiculous amount of cash. Comes with a gig bag, and will be expertly packed and shipped.
