    2001 Gibson Custom Shop Pete Townshend 67 SG Special

    A live staple during The Who’s true ascendancy to rock god status, Pete Townshend’s SG Special is iconic, serving as a sonic and physical foil, ussering Abbie Hoffman off the stage at Woodstock, and setting stages alight all over the world.

    Released in 2001, this Custom Shop homage was released in limited numbers and has become much sought after.

    This guitar is in excellent shape. The cherry finish still holds its vibrancy and the Custom Shop have really captured that faded shade that's so in keeping with the period. 

    There are some bumps and knocks and a little bit of buckle rash on the back, but none of this detracts from the look of the instrument.

    The neck too is in great shape. Fretboard and frets show no real signs of wear. The headstock has a few minor knocks .

    Plastics are in great shape as is the hardware.

    Electrically everything looks correct with no sign of any solder being disturbed.

    The guitar comes with a hardshell case

    There's always space for some P90 grit in our lives and there is no substitute for an SG special to give you that punchy delivery when you really need it. This one does not disappoint. Just crank up the HiWatt and you’ll be shaking all over…

    The neck is chunkier than you'd expect particularly as it was meant to be modeled on a mid-60s guitar but Gibson were not famous for their accuracy when it came to neck profiles during this period. Having said that, it's not huge and is perfectly manageable.

    An understated signature model from a classic period in rock history, it's clear, to the naked eye, that this iconic guitar won’t hang around for long…
