Gibson SG Junior 1965

  • Sale
  • Regular price $ 2,499.00

Early 1965 Gibson SG Junior in beautiful condition. 1964 neck specs, so wide and somewhat chunky. Original finish shows only minor wear and is in excellent condition. Just a few dings on the edges, but not majorly checked or cracked. No structural cracks or breaks and it looks very nice.

The guitar's original owner passed away in 1981 and the guitar has been sitting unplayed in a closet ever since. The original owner routed the guitar to accommodate a 1960's era patent number sticker Gibson humbucker, and he also swapped the tuners with 60's Grovers and a tailpiece cut to intonate with a plain G string. Frets show minor wear but have life left.
This is a highly resonant instrument that sounds and plays great. The vintage pickup sounds wonderful and for a lack of a better term... This guitar ABSOLUTELY RULES.

Because of the swapped tuners and pickup, we're pricing this guitar to sell.  

The guitar is available with either the original chipboard Gibson case, or a modern Gator SG case, but not both unless the buyer picks up the guitar locally or is willing to pay the additional shipping charge for the extra size and weight of 2 cases in a single package. Pics of the cases coming soon.
