We don’t see many of these and to see one in this near MINT condition is always a treat. The finish has only yellowed slightly but has been well cared for evidently as there are only a few minor chips and dinks.
The neck too is in great shape too. The fretboard is free of wear and the frets have plenty of life left in them. At some stage different tuners have been fitted which is only appart by small extra rings by the washers.
Full 1964 spec with wide nut and medium chunky '64 neck profile.
The plastics are in good shape. The pickguard has cracked around the screws as is to be expected but is otherwise in good condition. The knobs are correct.
The hardware is correct and in good condition with only slight wear visible.
Electronically everything is original. All solder joints are untouched. Unfortunately the codes are obscured.
The guitar comes with a Gibson oblong hard case from that period.
Sonically this guitar is so much more than a 'student' guitar.. A great rock n roll machine, this guitar just screams. The neck is so comfortable being a classic, favoured 1964 profile and reassuringly full, just inviting you to play anywhere.
We love SGs here at ATB Guitars and to see one in this condition in a Custom colour is fantastic. Grab it before it get away…
