Here is a Very Rare opportunity
Up for sale on consignment....
An Original USA 1973 Gibson SG
Here's what the onwer - John Hall - has to say...
It seriously SOUNDS superb like an old '73 Gibson SG Std should (it has got GREAT wood and pickups, even though 1 of them is a 5-wire Dimarzio).
And it has pretty rare features, like the "Gibson" - branded Bigsby tremolo, and the 2 jack outputs, and "Gibson" - branded machine heads.
The major things that you could do to it are:
- rewire the cavity tone and volume switch wiring - it's a bit dodgy with age and use.
- There's a bit of meat left on the frets, but it will eventually need a re-fret down the track.
The minor things that you could do to it are:
- Replace 1 bridge post, as one half of the slot in the top has broken off (just for ease of adjustment, even though you can still adjust it as is).
- New white knob for 3-way selector switch (the old one has perished a bit, but still works)
- new speed knobs (the old ones on it are probably replacements, because they are a different style - I myself HATED speed knobs when I owned my Gibson Les Paul Deluxe years ago and I changed
them to a completely different style too - ones that were easier to read, and and immediately 'see' where they were)
I would consider a trade or swap (either way, depending on item, etc) on a Mesa Boogie Lone Star Special, or a John Ratajczyk Cream Reverb, or an original pre-1987 Schecter guitar, or a model 1758 and/or 1755 Goldentone, or a hand-wired PTP wood cabinet Vox AC15 or 30 with Celestian Golds or Blues, or a Matamp amp of at least 12 watts, or a Reynolds JFR 25 amp. Or something really interesting.
Thanks for doing this, Nath.
BTW, I would HATE to have to ship this anywhere, so Local Pickup is very strongly preferred. I couldn't bear to have this lost or broken.
