CUSTOM SHOP HISTORIC
Gibson SG Special
Up for consideration is a 2004 Gibson Custom Shop Historic SG Special Reissue electric guitar and original hardshell case.
This is a great-sounding, great-looking, and great-playing guitar that is all original with the exception of upgraded tuners and a compensated bridge (original bridge included). The SG Special was made famous by Pete Townshend, Carlos Santana and several others, and if you want the original early 60s original, it will cost you $7,500 or more, on the vintage market. However, the Gibson Custom Shop Hisrotic Reissue is a faithful reproduction of the coveted original, and is selling here for a small fraction of the vintage selling price. This guitar is no longer in production, so here is a great opportunity to get this great, classic vintage-reproduction guitar!!!
for 1270 Hi-resolution photos of this guitar. This guitar comes
with a satisfaction
guaranteed, 3-day return policy. This is a world class electric
guitar, with a fast, straight neck, and great tonal variety from the P90 pickups. The dual cutaway design makes easy work for flying up and down the neck with no restrictions.

The guitar is in excellent cosmetic and playing condition, but there are a few scratches and even though the guitar looks great, this guitar is conservatively rated at about 8/10 for cosmetics. Ther are some very small pick marks and nicks on the body front, and the back does have some buckle rash, and this is not easily visable in the photos, but you can see it if you shine a light on it and look for imperfections. The neck however is very clean and is very near-perfect. It feels great playing it, as there is no scratches or imperfections to get in the way of virtuoso lead playing.
Here are 7 quick, 1-take MP3 sound files of myself playing
this guitar, to give you an idea of what to expect. The
guitar has great tone, sustain, and body, and also tonal variety, as the P90s add just the right amount of bite in the bridge position. The clean MP3 file is straight signal into the DI input on the Presonus ADL600 tube preamp, and the distorted files use a Doc Scary Overdrive unit, in to the ADL600, and Rosetta 200 convertersion, and MP3s were made in Logic using the stock "Warm Echoes" preset.

In short, this guitar is a World-Class electric concert and/or recording guitar,
and it would make
a great guitar for gigs, as well as studio work. It is lightweight, and very fun to play, and the wide range of sounds you can get out of it give the flexibility to play in a lot of different styles.
