Summary: This SG shows a fair amount of playwear around the body with various pick scratches, nicks, dings and buckle rash but the frets are in great shape with no noticeable dents or grooves. There are a few cracks by the control knobs but they don’t affect playability. It has just been setup and restrung with a new set of 10s by our in house guitar tech and it plays and sounds great.

Body: The double cutaway mahogany body has an ebony finish and large b/w/b pickguard.

Neck: The mahogany neck has an unbound rosewood fingerboard, pearloid dots, 24 ¾” fingerboard and 1 11/16” nut width.

Pickups/Hardware: 2 original uncovered humbucker pickups, 2 volume, 2 tones, 3 way toggle, Grover tuners, tune-o-matic bridge and tailpiece.

Cosmetics: This SG has a fair amount of pick scratching on the front, buckle rash on the back, dings and dents around the body and chips in the edges but only very light wear on the back of the neck and nearly no wear on the frets. The most notable blemishes are the cracks around the volume control (see pictures) that are faintly visible on the other side if you remove the control panel. You can see the holes from the original tuning keys on the back of the headstock.

Playability: Our in-house guitar tech has just inspected, setup and restrung this guitar with a new set of 10s. The neck is straight, the truss rod is fully functioning and the action has been setup low and comfortable. The frets are in great shape with no major grooves or divots from use and it plays beautifully up and down the fingerboard with no dead spots or choking out.

Modifications: Changed tuners

Weight: 7 lbs, 6 oz.
