This is a 2019 SG Special Ltd Ed in Pelham Blue in super clean condition. Beautiful color, all original. Please note, I took one picture in natural light, as the photo lights made it look a bit more green than it is. (The Gibson Inverness Green in this model is very similar to the Pelham Blue. Please do your own research. This one looks like Pelham to me.)
Frets and neck in great shape. 60s styling with fully bound neck. The two P90s sound killer. Weight is a very slim 6 pounds, 7 ounces. Cosmetically, it’s near mint. There is one tiny mark at tip of headstock (see pics). No case. I do a full cleaning and setup on all guitars. (Details on my setups and packing at bottom of listing.) Thanks for looking!
What You Get

— FREE USA shipping.

— Ship within 1 business day–pro packing.
All setups are done by our in-house luthier. Setup includes new strings (9s or 10s depending on what the nut is cut for), overall polish, cleaning any gunk off fingerboard, oiling neck, and polishing frets when necessary. We spray out any pots that are noisy, turn the truss rod (if necessary) and set string height at low-to-medium action depending on string buzz present. Since setup is highly subjective you may need to get it set to your particular needs by your personal luthier. Basses get the same treatment minus the string change. Thanks!
I use quality boxes, thick bubble wrap, and peanuts to pack guitars. I have a very high rate of successful guitar and bass shipping (meaning few damaged instruments). I have been doing this 10 years and know how to pack well–with or without a hard case. I wrote a detailed story with photos on how I pack a guitar, which you can find on my StillKickinMusic site blog. If you Google “THERE IN ONE PIECE…How to Pack a Guitar” you will find it. Thanks.
The SG Special returns to the classic design that made it relevant, played and loved — shaping sound across generations and genres of music. This early 60’s style SG Special has the vibe and sound heard on countless classic rock recordings. The comfortable, slim taper mahogany neck and bound rosewood fingerboard is well known for fast, effortless playing. The two P-90 pickups are noted for their fat, snarl when driven and for their smooth, sweetness when played clean. The SG Special is equipped with the 3-way toggle switch, handwired controls and orange drop capacitors.
