1978 Gibson SG Custom in an attractive WHITE FINISH with gold plated parts - 100% original, and in excellent condition - with original red fuzz lined hardshell Gibson case - serial number 73178xxx. This wonderful SG Custom came to us in superb condition, which does not happen often. This is a classic look and design when it comes to 1970s classic rock and roll, and a killer addition to any Gibson collection. We are calling this SG Custom excellent in terms of condition - and at nearly 40 years old, she is really very clean: there is wear to the gold plating - the pickup covers, bridge, and tailpiece - but this is all very normal wear. These are the original frets, and they are in excellent shape - there is the teeniest bit of pitting on the first 3 frets from playing cowboy chords, but that is it. The original white finish has aged and yellowed nicely over time to a really pleasing 'cream' color that looks super cool next to the ebony fingerboard and gold parts. She features her original pots and electronics - all original wiring and pickups - and 3 GREAT sounding Gibson 'Tar Back' Humbucking pickups. Over the years, these pickups have been under-rated, but are now getting the respect they deserve - offering beautiful and chimey clean tones, and they are particularly excellent when overdriven. There are some dings and scratches - some wear to the edges on the bottom of the body, and some 'buckle worming' on the guitar's back side - but all from normal use over the years. There are some chips on the edges of the body that reveal the mahogany wood underneath - but again, just from normal play - this SG is really quite excellent considering its age - approx an 8/10 in terms of condition. Her original red fuzz lined hard case is also in really nice shape. More photos are available - call 859-261-5500 for an in hand description. Thanks.
