1961 Original Gibson SG Special This guitar is part of my personal stock of vintage instruments. Having said this, I am not a collector but a player. I’ve been playing professionally and recording with Jimmy Hall from Wet Willie fame as well as with Artimus Pyle, the original drummer from Lynyrd Skynyrd for over 10 years. Guitar features original P90 black soap bar pickups that sing with rich tonal charistics. ORIGINAL PICK GUARD, Wiring, switch, volume and tone pots verified *additional pics and serial numbers will be provided upon request Original Gibson Hardshell “Machine Gun” Case is Included; Alligator Tolex Guitar is all original with the exception of the bridge piece which was changed when I bought the guitar in the mid 90′s. I purchased the guitar from a private seller who was a physician. I found the guitar listed in the classified ads during the early days of Vintage Guitar.com. The instrument is as pictured and it has a beautiful original checked patina finish. NO NECK BREAKS; which are common to these old SG’s This guitar is a thru-neck model with no hilt; there is simply a very smooth transition from the body into the neck. Simply awesome.There is still good fret life left in the frets, however, I’ve kept the action high and use the guitar strictly for playing slide.This particular guitar has been stored in my private climate controlled office in Jacksonville for many years. I only pull it out for special occasions and for recording. I never gig with it for fear of it being stolen. NO ISSUESI WILL PROFESSIONALLY PACK THIS INSTRUMENT CORRECTLY. IMPORTANT: I WILL ONLY SHIP THIS GUITAR TO A VERIFIED PAYPAL ADDRESS UPON RECEIPT OF PAYMENT. I WILL SELL AND SHIP WITHIN THE CONTINENTAL US ONLY. SERIOUS INQUIRIES ONLY PLEASE! THANKS
