Horns of plenty here at ATB Guitars with this super clean all correct 1969 SG Standard...
Sorry, this item was sold out.
Stunning, near MINT 1969 Gibson SG Standard anyone…?
Angus’ guitar of choice, the SG was certainly the rock guitar of choice by the end of the 60s into the 70’s. This one has certainly not followed that particular lifestyle choice!
This guitar looks fantastic. The deep cherry colour has survived as has the luscious gloss of the lacquer. In fact, comparing the colour under the pickguard, there is very little difference. The top has one little bump on the upper horn which has gone through to the wood but otherwise is damage free. The back has fared even better with only a little wear near the control cavity.
The three piece neck is in equally good condition with no wear to the lacquer and very little fading. The Indian rosewood fretboard and frets are in great shape as is the binding. The guitar has a 1 9/16th nut width but the taper carve is deeper so keeps everything quite comfortable.
The hardware still has that brilliant shine it would have had from new and shows no signs of corrosion whatsoever. The plastics too are great. The pickguard is not warped or cracked and the knobs and pickup ring have not worn either.
Electronically everything is totally correct. The pickups are both Patent Number sticker pickups and none of the solder joints look to have been touched. The pot dates read 37th week of 1969. The guitar comes with a slightly later Gibson SG hardshell case.
This guitar plays very well. The neck is very comfortable with a slinky action. Both pickups complement each other and deliver a classic SG tone. There is zero fret wear and absolutely no wear on the beautiful fretboard either.
That gorgeous colour and condition should be enough to pique your interest but this guitar offers so much more. Grab it before it gets away…
