Offered here is a superb 2005 Gibson Custom Shop Reissue of a 1962 era SG Standard. This limited run instrument, 1 of 500 Gibson built for Guitar Center. This model is recognizable primarily by it's factory installed Grover tuners, rather than the Klusons you typically find on this model.
Nearly a half century ago, a 1969 Gibson SG became my first humbucker guitar and one of the primary gigging instruments of my youth. To this day, the SG remains a guitar that evokes many positive memories for me and remains a model that I am particularly fond of.
The relatively wide SG neck has a 60's C-shape, with depth measurements of .840" at the first fret, increasing to .920" at the twelfth fret and it feels great! The guitar is all original and has Gibson's Burstbucker pickups, with the "Pantent Applied For stickers."
This of course is an all-Mahogany guitar, a very dense piece of which was used for this one and it weighs 8 pounds, 2 ounces, about the weight of a very light Les Paul. While on the high side for weight as SG's go, the pay back is in the great tone! Please check out the very brief clean sound sample included below. This guitar plays like butter too!
As a VOS format guitar, this instrument received very light aging at the factory consisting of a light patina added to the finish and hardware. Other than the VOS aging and some extremely light play wear, this SG remains in great original condition with no repairs. The frets show little to no wear (see photos). It comes with the original Gibson Custom Shop case, the certificate of authenticity and the truss rod tool.
Gibson dealers are asking nearly $5K in some cases for new SG examples these days, but this well kept (and arguably better) 2005 beauty can be had at a significant discount. Get yourself a great Custom Shop SG with this guitar. Make it yours today. You will be very glad you did!
