GIBSON SG JUNIOR Jr 2012 Dog-Ear P90 Heritage Cherry Black Guard Sweet! 20467
This is a 2012 Gibson SG Junior in Heritage Cherry finish. This guitar is in excellent playing condition. Frets are A+. Has playing wear, probably an 7/10 overall. Mild scuffing all over and a couple marks by the headstock from a guitar wall hanger. But still looks very good.
The P90 is an iconic pickup and the dog ear variety is the best because it's strapped diretly to the body and gets all that solid resonance from the mahogany. Cutting tone stands out in the mix, somewhere between a humbucker and single-coil sound--all the beef without overdoing it. Classic wraparound bridge. It's ready to play and enjoy. Weight is a stuningly light 5 pounds, 15 ounces. 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!

A lighter SG with tonal cut to match its sharp looks. The single P-90 pickup at the bridge of this Gibson SG JR P-90 Electric Guitar generates a more edgy yet still full-bodied tone that calls to mind Pete Townshend. The mahogany body and set mahogany neck generate great resonance for increased sustain. In 1961, the Les Paul was redesigned with a thinner body and 2 sharp cutaway horns that making the upper frets more accessible while lowering production costs. The new model was popular, but Les Paul the guitarist did not like it and asked to have his name removed. Gibson renamed the model the "SG" which was short for "solid guitar". Though Les Paul's name was officially removed from the model in 1961, the plastic Les Paul nameplates (positioned between the rhythm pickup and fingerboard) were in abundance in the Gibson factory and SG models having these nameplates were built and sold by Gibson up to end of 1963. SGs have been the choice of world-class artists such as Pete Townsend, Eric Clapton, Tony Iommi, and Angus Young.

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.
