"The original Gibson 50’s design with a 1 11/16” wide nut width, fat neck, and 2 P-90 pickups makes this guitar just scream. It has a solid Honduras Mahogany body, bound Brazilian Rosewood finger board with 22 frets, pearloid dot position markers, wrap around tail piece (no trem), Cherry Red finish, nickel hardware and the Gibson original hard shell case. You wont find a more straight up unmolested all original guitar than this with documentation and just think Pete Townsend never had a chance to destroy this one. There are reasons why players like Townsend and Angus Young chose the SG and after plugging in this sleeping monster you will know why. The frets are original with the binding nibs that go over the fret ends and with only minor fret wear. The pot codes read 137647 meaning 137=CTS brand pots (Chigago Telephone Company), 64 is the year 1964, and 7 indicating the 7th week of 1964. The Cherry Red finish is a vibrant Red with no fade and there are no cracks in the pick guard like most of these SG’s have."
