1964 Vintage Gibson SG Standard Guitar


via this auction
"From the serial number we can attribute her date of manufacture to 1964.This SG is cherry red, and has that unmistakable Angus tone.

These pickups are just plain screamers. They read 7.20 k ohms for the neck pickup and 7.21 k ohms for the bridge pickup. The potentiometers are date coded for the 52nd week of 1965…perhaps this guitar was held back.

The body of this guitar is in very nice shape. A few dings here and there, but nothing substantial. There was a minor repair done to the heal of this guitar. It is barely visible to the naked eye and does not affect the playability at all. The cherry finish is still very beautiful and has some nice checking on the face.

The neck! The neck of this guitar is awesome. It is not one of those flat skinny necks, yet it is not one of those baseball bat necks either. Just perfect and plays like butter. The original frets, tuners, and truss rod all work as intended. All the plastic, as well as the Maestro vibrato are original and work as intended. There are 2 screws which the heads have been sheared off on the low E side of the vibrato lyre tail-piece. It does not affect the sound or the playability.

The guitar weighs in at a scant 7 pounds and will ship with its original hard shell case."
