GIBSON SG SPECIAL 60s TRIBUTE Upgrades! 2011 Dual P90 PU Satin + Case HSC 10406


Regular price $850
60s Tribute SG in a classic natural finish. Two P90! Thin nitrocellulose finish to let the tone come through. 

Description
This is a 2011 Gibson SG 60s Tribute in natural satin finish. Comes with nice black hard case, case key, and black strap. It's all about Tone with the Alnico P90 pickup neck and upgraded DiMarzio bridge pickups both set on the all mahogany body and neck. The thin nitro finish really lets the warm tone shine through. Thin, light body doesn't weigh you down, and it sports the well-known Slim Taper 60s neck profile. Great condition only minor marks that besides just add charachter to an axe like this. Tuners have been upraded to chrome Grover kidney bean type. I just set it up with new strings and set intonation. Will be ready to play out of the box. At a trim 6 pounds, 7 ounces, you'll be doing Townshend leaps in no time. Rare Ltd Ed--only made for a couple years. Grab it before someone else does! (Details on my setups and packing and specs at bottom of listing.) Thanks for looking.

TONE:
The P90 in the neck is a well-known quantity, nice warm tone, gives you some breakup but not as down and dirty as a traditional hum bucker. The DiMarzio is an unknown model but put it this way, it sounds better to my ears than a P90. Higher output, big sound, but plenty of definition. Both of these strapped to the mahogany body and neck make for a ton of great tones at your fingertips.

Manufacturer Info

What do Pete Townshend, Carlos Santana, and Tony Iommi all have in common? Back in the '60s, each of these legendary guitarists played a Gibson SG Special with P-90 pickups. The SG Special '60s Tribute is based around the same revered tonewoods, glued-in neck, and Alnico-magnet P-90 pickups that made its predecessor legendary, with the same SlimTaper™ '60s neck profile that is behind some of the fastest-playing guitars in history.

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!

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.
