Persons looking for this product


Drop dead gorgeous 1969 cherry Gibson SG Special w/ Large Guard, Vibrola, & P-90s in Excellent Condition!

One of Gibson's most iconic & longest-running models! This is our GORGEOUS! 1969 Gibson SG Special! This is a beautiful vintage piece that has been very well cared for. This particular SG features the large 'bat wing' pickguard with two original Gibson P-90 pickups that just sound spectacular, not only that but this also features an original factory-fitted Vibrola term & compensated 'wrap-around' tailpiece!

Our '69 SG Special is in amazing shape for a Gibson-knocking 55 years of age! As you'd expect it has aged beautifully in its time as well as having collected a few signs of wear & age along the way, while there is a small collection of chips & dings around the guitar as a whole it is all cosmetic and is still functioning & playing as well as the day it left the factory, if not better. As you can see from our images it has all its original hardware, plastics & electronics with the pots dating to '69 also. It weighs in at a gorgeous 7.31lb & has a nut width of 1.57" that widens to a hair over 2" at the 12th fret. This stunning SG currently plays with a beautifully low action that is effortless to play and is just jaw-dropping when plugged into your amp of choice. It is an amazing piece that would take pride of place in anyone's collection.

As is standard practice with any new arrival in store, this very cool '69 SG Special has been through the trusted hands of our team in our onsite workshop to ensure it is in tip-top shape for its new home and owner!

Our 1969 Gibson SG Special comes with its original Gibson case!
