1968 Gibson SG Special


1968 Gibson SG Special – Cherry Red finish, P90 PIckups, with vibrola bridge system, and in beautiful condition. With the exception of the newer Kluson tuners that were installed (the originals were 3 on a strip with white buttons), this example is 100% original. Weighing in at a lightweight 6.9lbs it has been lovingly played over the years, has no cracks, or imperfections other than normal minor finish flaws, and some belly worms on the back that you’d expect from a 52-year-old guitar. The neck is perfectly straight, is very fat but extremely comfortable, has minimal fret wear, there have been no repairs, and the guitar plays incredibly well. It boasts a huge, growling, creamy tone that can only come from vintage P90’s with super low fast action that you’d expect from a classic Gibson. Kluson makes a reproduction set of the original tuners that we could install if the purchaser prefers, and could be replaced without any alteration to the original footprint.

The guitar ships with the original chipboard case that could be upgraded to a modern hard case for an additional charge. The guitar pictured is the exact instrument that is for sale. All instruments are available at our store showroom in Warrenton, Virginia, and are set up to the buyer’s specifications including restringing with any string of their choice at no additional charge upon purchase. All instruments are guaranteed to be packed well and arrive safely. Please email or call and we’d be happy to provide an in-hand description of the instrument and answer any questions you have.
