 Here is a chance to get a GREAT deal on a cool Gibson SG from 1968! It has a few non-original issues that will make it very affordable and, if you have the parts, you can maybe make a buck on it!

   It truly has the Angus Young look and vibe! It is exactly what you'll expect from the late 60's SG - the narrow neck profile and nut, lightweight mahogany and very resonant!

  The non-original issues are: 1) a non-original tailpiece(maybe trapeze, but I cannot tell) was installed at some point and there are 2 screwholes still visible. The original is now back on, 2) The bridge pickup is a later Pat. Stamped Gibson Humbucker (the original is disassembled in the neck pocket and included). 3) The bridge itself is also a newer Gibson bridge assembly (maybe the same era as the bridge pickup) 4) The neck/heel joint has two finish scratches that are very noticeable, but they are NOT cracks in the wood and do NOT compromise the neck/heel joint. I had my luthier study them and he said "I can repair the lacquer, or you can just leave it! It's probably been there for 20 years!" 5) The pickup covers are gone. The neck pickup is original! The bridge pickup can probably be repaired.

   So, the rest all appears to be stock. I have provided 12 photos of the guitar. The case is an even earlier 60's Gibson hardshell SG case, with yellow interior and the Gibson badge. All the letches are intact on the case as well. The exterior shows some wear and usage, but it is perfectly fine for safe-keeping the guitar when not in use. The guitar is light and resonant and really SCREAMS the AC/DC look! It is ideal for the player that LOVES the smaller/narrower neck profile that is synonymous with the late-60's SG's. There is no neck repair. There is no structural repair ANYWHERE. It is a sound guitar structurally and electronically. The tuners are original and work fine. The pots are original, the guard is original, the knobs are original. The control cavity cover has a crack in it, but it's together and stable. Nut width is 1 9/16" and weighs 7 lbs. exactly.

So, you get a really cool late 60's SG Standard for a GREAT price! It's a great deal for anyone that needs the right price and loves that era SG!
