Classic 1964 neck profile and two superb vintage P-90 on an original wrap tail must surely make this one of most desired versions of the sometimes under rated (and under valued at the moment) Gibson SG Special...

This product is currently on hold.

Here’s a very nice Gibson SG Special in the most desired configuration, from probably the best year these were made…

1964 SG with that classic, round medium chunky ‘64 neck profile and classic Santana Woodstock stop tail version with no Vibrato ever. Light as anything and so resonant acoustically you can hear it in the next room without plugging it in.

All hardware is correct aside from some very good repro knobs that would fool most unless you study them closely and under black light. Other tuners have been fitted at some stage but correct, strip style Klusons are back on there now. There was a tiny crack by a couple of the tuner screws that was going nowhere but my luthier has injected some glue in there just to be on the safe side (see pictures).

Aside from that and most importantly, there are no neck heel issues, no headstock breaks and all correct finish and electrics. No disturbed solder and both P-90’s are strong and powerful. Original frets have good meat left and action is low and a joy to play with that classic feeling neck.

Included is a correct style Gibson soft shell case from a slightly later period, with a broken handle.

We haven’t had one of these for a while and they usually turn out to be pretty popular - when you play it, you can soon tell why.

Finally, and to quote one of the greatest SG Special players ever - Are you going to the party…..? (SAHB)
