All maple construction, mahogany neck.
24.75 in. scale, 13.5 in. body width, 16.5 in. body length, 1.25 in. body depth
2 octave (24 fret) neck. This guitar plays very much like an early 70’s Gibson SG.
Overall this guitar is in excellent condition, has been well cared for. Neck is smooth and fast, frets are in good condition, a great sounding and great playing guitar. Pots and caps are original, with the original Bill Lawrence “tarback” Gibson pickup in the neck and an a vintage Dimarzio Super Distortion in the neck, probably the most common pickup to be swapped into a guitar in the 70’s. There is an additional mini toggle switch for this pickup for single coil or humbucking and the rotary pickup selector switch has been changed to a three way toggle.
The pick guard is brand new, still has the protective plastic on it, it was missing the pick guiard when I bought it so I installed. This guitar might have been custom ordered as they usually shipped with Kluson tuners, but this guitar came from the factor with Grover tuners, they are original and in great condition. Original harmonica bridge etc.
Condition items to note:
- This guitar had a bigsby at some point, there are filled holes in the front.
- There are hanger scrapes on the headstock from being hung by the neck.
- There are no cracks
- The finish has hazing in the clear coat, common to a guitar of this age
Comes with the original non-Gibson case. Case was made in Japan in the 70’s.
