Summary: The Gibson SG was introduced in 1961 as a complete replacement for the Les Paul. The new design was thought to be a more modern solidbody guitar, with sleek beveled edges and two sharp cutaways. By late 1963, the Les Paul moniker was dropped, and the SG (or Solid Guitar) became an entirely separate model. The SG has remained in steady production ever since earning a place as one of the truly classic solidbody guitars. This particular Gibson is from 1972 and it comes with the original hardshell case.

Body: Double cutaway solid mahogany body

Neck: Fully bound 3-piece mahogany neck with a rosewood fingerboard, block pearloid inlays, 22 frets, 24.75” scale length, 1 9/16” nut width, Gibson tuning keys

Pickups/Hardware: Nickel hardware, Gibson tuning keys, stop tailpiece, square tune-o-matic bridge, 2 humbucker pickups, 2 volume knobs, 2 tone knobs, 3-way switch, 5-ply pickguard

Cosmetics: This instrument shows normal wear for a played but not abused vintage Gibson from the early 1970’s with some dings & nicks on the body, buckle rash on the back of the guitar, some visible wear around the headstock & the edges of the guitar. There are no cracks or breaks.

Playability: This vintage Gibson plays great – we set it up with 10’s and the action is low, the neck is straight & the instrument plays with no buzzing or dead spots. This 1972 Gibson has a thin nut width of 1 9/16” so the neck feels very thin compared to most modern SG’s.
