Real piece of history here. 40 years young and still going.

This is a vintage 1978 Gibson SG in ebony finish. This baby has been around but is still rockin. The pickups, as you would expect, have some secret sauce in them. Amazing is all I can say. Thick tone for days with the dual humbuckers. The neck still feels great. Frets do have some even wear all over with mild grooves on the first 7 frets or so. Finish has plenty of love marks all over. Some hazing to the black though I managed to polish a lot of it out. Some marks and lines on back of neck. No breaks or cracks anywhere. Seems all original except one tuner was changed. A couple tuners are bent but still work surprisingly well. Comes with black aftermarket case. Weight is a mere 6 pounds, 13 ounces. I do a full cleaning and setup on all guitars. (Details on my setups and packing at bottom of listing.) Thanks for looking.

Guitar Setup
All our setups are done by our in-house trained luthier. Setup includes new strings (9s or 10s depending on what the nut is cut for), overall polish, cleaning any gunk off fingerboard, oiling neck, and polishing frets when necessary. We spray out any pots that are noisy, turn the truss rod (if necessary) and set string height at low-to-medium action depending on string buzz present. Since setup is highly subjective you may need to get it set to your particular needs by your personal luthier. Basses get the same treatment minus the string change. Thanks!

I use quality boxes, thick bubble wrap, and peanuts to pack guitars. I have a very high rate of successful guitar and bass shipping (meaning few damaged instruments). I have been doing this 10 years and know how to pack well--with or without a hard case. I wrote a detailed story with photos on how I pack a guitar, which you can find on my StillKickinMusic site blog. If you Google "THERE IN ONE PIECE...How to Pack a Guitar" you will find it. Thanks.
