This is painful, but needs must...

Selling my 1964 Gibson SG Special. Beautiful sounding guitar, with original P90s.

A few things to note:
  • skinny nut width - 1-9/16" I think
  • refinished - looks awesome, but yeah, not original. Slightly sparkly candy apple red kind of deal
  • looks like someone strengthened the neck at some point - see pic below. There are actually four little dimples, but it was really hard to capture - you can kind of see one of them on the right hand side.
  • has a Pigtail adjustable wraparound bridge on it, but original also included.
  • repro tuners (Gotoh I think)
  • has had a refret

All up though, it is an incredible machine. Well looked after and recently serviced. Comes with non-original Gibson case (90s brown/pink lined job).

Trade Me shit fight now on...

What year was Iommi's Monkey?

I believe Monkey was a 1965. And funnily enough, I suspect this one is too... I have been reliably informed that the 1-9/16th nut width means it is not 64. I'll check the serial number when I'm back from my holiday to confirm.

I love the colour, regardless of originality. Gibson did do a red like this as a custom offer. Those pickups will be awesome

Good luck with the sale! Let me know if you find a buyer - I'm quite sure you'll find the guitar well worth it. :wink:
