Description
This is a 2014 Gibson SG Special in Fireburst matte nitro finish that is really amazing. The Gibson 2014 SG Special commemorates Gibson's 120th Anniversary with a solid mahogany body and neck and a '60s SlimTaper profile. The 24-fret rosewood fingerboard spans a full two octaves and sports a 120th Anniversary inlay at the 12th fret.

Classic combination of 490R and 490T pickups with chrome covers and dark cream mounting rings. This SG Special sports max grip speed knobs, vintage-style Kluson Deluxe tuners, a Graph Tech nut, and tune-o-matic bridge. Weight is a very lean 6 pounds, 6 ounces. Cosmetically, it's extremely clean with only some tiny marks (see pics). Frets are in great condition. No case. I do a full cleaning and setup on all guitars. (Details on my setups and packing at bottom of listing.) Thanks for looking.

What You Get
-- Full setup, cleaning, and new strings.
-- FREE USA shipping.
-- 30-day return policy.
-- Ship within 1 business day--pro packing.

Guitar Setup
My setup on guitars 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. I spray out any pots that are noisy. I 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. I don't claim to be a trained luthier, but I'm able to set guitars/basses for a reasonable out-of-box experience and have had very few complaints. If you're looking for the perfect setup on a used guitar, please expect to take it to a trained luthier who is familiar with your individual playing style and preferences. ps: basses get the same setup minus the new strings. Thanks!

Packing
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.


Manufacturer Info
Gibson's SG Special is a rock icon. Immortalized by Santana at Woodstock and smashed onstage by Townshend, the SG Special is a piece of rock history. New for 2014, this Nashville-made SG is the real deal, giving you a pair of toneful humbuckers, a slim-profile neck, and an extended 24-fret rosewood fingerboard with action that's almost non-existant. The SG's lightweight mahogany body delivers great sustain and no pain, even if you play all night. And the nitro finish looks and feels luscious, while enhancing the tone of this legendary rock machine. Own your piece of rock history - the Gibson SG Special.

Gibson SG Special Solidbody Electric Guitar at a Glance:
Slim-profile maple neck and 24-fret rosewood fingerboard
490R and 490T humbuckers give you access to a universe of tone
Nitrocellulose finish for yummy vintage looks and feel

Slim-profile maple neck and 24-fret rosewood fingerboard
The Gibson SG Special is famous for its comfortable, fast-action neck. Whether you're chording down low or soloing up high, the distinctive slim profile always feels just right. With its iconic double-horned cutaway that gives you free access to all the way up the rosewood fingerboard, this SG Special's a lean, mean rock machine. And speaking of fingerboards, this one sports 24 frets. Whereas SGs have traditionally been 22-fret instruments, the 2014 SG Special gives your fingers a playing field optimized for extended-range shredding.

490R and 490T humbuckers give you access to a universe of tone
You want fat, snarling tone? The Gibson SG Special serves it up, big time. But Gibson's 498T and 490R humbuckers are also seriously versatile. Gibson voiced these pickups for tonal characteristics similar to '57 Classics, but with a slight increase in the upper mids for a more contemporary humbucker sound. Whether you're delivering your musical message with mellow jazz tones, bone-rattling crunch, or a blistering liquid inferno - these pups reward your touch with world-class responsiveness.

Nitrocellulose finish for yummy vintage looks and feel
The Gibson SG Special wears a gorgeous nitrocellulose lacquer finish. Nitro finishes - standard back in the day - are significantly thinner than today's polyurethane finishes, allowing the guitar to "breathe." Nitro finishes not only look vintage-y wonderful; they also enhance the instrument's tonal qualities. Add to that this guitar's classy Gibson 120th Anniversary banner inlay at the 12th fret, and your 2014 Gibson SG Special has the look and feel of a future classic. And so it is.
