Vintage '65 Gibson USA SG Special Electric Guitar w/OHSC & Vibrola

Welcome bidders, you are bidding on an incredibly cool vintage piece. This is the '65 Gibson USA SG Special. 24.75" scale. 1.57" nut width. Serial #: 540072, 6.4 lbs. In 1963, the world officially became acquainted with the SG- the body style had been known since '61 as the 'Les Paul'. That makes this Special a very early 'SG' example. The light weight slab mahogany body and one piece mahogany neck create incredible resonance- this beauty absolutely sings. Dual P90 single coil pickups make available sweet cleans and even sweeter gain tones. Both pickups soak up the body's warmth and add fantastic low/high end midrange for classic earthy tones. The neck P90 here will absolutely blow you away- perfect thick sustain. I fell in love immediately. True to 60's Gibson- the neck here is super thin- just .76" thick at the 5th fret. The narrow C profile makes this an absolute pleasure to play.The icing on the cake is the Vibrola tremolo- smooth pitch effects enable all your favorite vibrato effects. The look is pure classic SG- cherry finish showing the mahogany grains, chrome hardware, and Kluson Deluxe strip machines. Excellent condition- there are some small marks but nothing that affects the tone or playability whatsoever. Everything here looks to be original-no breaks or repairs, no broken solder. The frets are original and clean- just professionally setup with action of 3/32" at the 12th fret. This auction includes the original hardshell case. This is your chance to add an absolute stunner to your collection- the '65 Gibson SG Special. We have been an authorized Gibson dealer for well over a decade. Buy with confidence. This is a no reserve auction. Don't pass this by!
