1961 Gibson SG Special - Cherry ...only 2,94Kg !!!
1961 Gibson SG Special - Cherry incl. orig. black hardshell case w/yellow interior
Cool 1961 Gibson SG Special in Cherry finish, converted to tailpiece and tune-o-matic bridge! Besides the tailpiece conversion, the tuners have been changed to similar models and a new fretjob has been done. The electronic is all original, with 4 pots stamped 134.61.40 dating them to 40th week of 1961, the two original Gibson P-90 "soap-bar" pickups have well balanced outputs of N= 8,37K and B=8,41K and sound amazing in that guitar! The guitar has its original finish, which still has a nice cherry red finish, there are no breaks, repairs or cracks, other then the mentioned conversions. The guitar weights in at only 2,94 Kg(!) and has a medium-size neck which is very comfortable to play. Get a super 56(!) year old Vintage "Rocker" for less than a new Gibson Custom Shop would cost!
