Description

The next time you look at an SG, look for little cracks in the cutaways. The seller will tell you they are checks. They aren't. They are stress cracks and they occur because the neck join in an SG is a bad design and the neck tends to move. That's why Gibson kept changing it. One good shot and the neck will break right across those "checks". Look at the last photo. It's not this guitar but it illustrates what can happen to a stressed SG. This one is a beautiful, all original example. Condition is 9+. Finish is vibrant and unfaded. Neck profile is slim and wide. Pickups (PAFs) read 7.88K and 7.80K. One is missing most of its sticker. Pot codes are 43rd week of 1960 and all solder is original. It is a wonderful player and the tone is big and fat and just what you expect in an SG. Weight is 7 lbs 13 ounces. Frets are original and show almost no wear. The case alone is a marvel. The brown SG case is really rare to begin with and to find one in near mint condition is most unusual. The other rare thing is the serial number-4 digits. You only see that in early 61. This is a collector grade SG/LP. There is no buckle rash and only one ding on the body. The only notable wear is to the nickel plating on the upper part of the sideways trem. Again, the last photo is NOT this guitar.
