SOLD! - 1969 1970 Gibson SG Special Cherry DC P90
All original, no headstock or neck breaks, stable repaired crack in the body near the lower bout heel side.
Pete Townshend vibe all over! It’s no wonder that SG Specials were his main stage guitars between 1968 and 1971, this is a real star to play!
This stunning SG Special shows that it has been around the world and has all the marks of a well rocked instrument.
No breaks, which for an SG model is very rare indeed. Lovely original finish faded to brown / walnut and marks all over the body, neck and headstock. Brazilian Rosewood fingerboard is in great condition. Has a very small volute as in 1969.
The only thing replaced are the tuners, the rest is all original. P90's, electronics, POTS date to early 1970, even the Vibrola tailpiece is still on there.
This guitar exhibits impressive sustain, precise and clear top end sparkle, and a proper bass. It’s nice and woody and compressed. Playing this guitar is almost efforless. The action is super low and the frets so flat that you can whizz around this neck like lightning. It almost goes without saying that upper fret access couldn’t be much easier and your fingers might venture into higher altitudes than they are accustomed to.
