1968 Gibson SG Standard


In stock

EX++, Cherry finish on stunning quilted mahogany body, and very clean with original warranty card and owner’s manual (listing the price at a whopping $415.00). 1968 was the last year for Brazilian rosewood fretboards. This clean Gibson is all-original and has the charming factory “dart” on the back of the headstock, the black-painted area with a triangular tail,  to seal the end grain. Mahogany timber is rarely figured but the quilt on this one is perhaps this guitar’s best feature. It’s in exceptional condition (note the deep, dark, unfaded Cherry) with only the lightest play wear. Getting very hard to find in this condition. It comes with 2 cases, one the original square Gibson case and the second a plastic utility case. Consigned.
