This fantastic ’65 SG has a serial number of 353068 and is in top notch condition with the gorgeous dark cherry finish, double pointed cutaways, and ultra-thin solid body. The fast-flying mahogany neck and a blackguard with ornate tailpiece and vibrato arm only add to this guitar’s amazing look and sound! Its 24.5” scale neck measures 1 10/16th” at the nut. The neck profile starts as a small/medium C and tapers towards the body as a full medium C. It features excellent playability with the worn but original frets and the original punchy, growling Gibson humbuckers. The top and back of the body and the back of the neck both have some light checking. It isn’t too excessive for its age and the back of the neck is very clean minus one ding at the 4th fret on the bass string side. There is a bit of finish wear along the sides of the body. There are three repair points but neither are structural or affect the playability of the guitar. One is a finish crack around the base of the neck that looks to have been professionally done. The second is at the bottom of the body near the output jack and looks to be a professionally dowel-repaired. The third is a dowel-repaired crack along the side of the body below the bottom of the pick guard that also looks to be professionally done. The binding has nicely yellowed especially along the upper frets. The back plate is missing a couple screws and has a few additional holes that were drilled into it at one point. Also on the back plate two of the remaining screws seem to be a bit stripped. The pots look to be original and date to 1965. Comes with original hard shell case.
