GIBSON SG SPECIAL 70s TRIBUTE T SATIN Sunburst Alnico mini-HB Clean! + Bag 37518
A 2016 Gibson SG 70s Tribute in Vintage Sunburst Satin finish. Comes with Gibson deluxe gigbag and original factory papers. The Dual Blade Alnico mini-humbuckers are the star of the show here with vintage tone and retro look. Mahogany body and baked maple fretboard with rectangle inlays. These have a thin satin nitro finish to let the tone come through. I think the creme pickguard and pickup surrounds and gold knobs look amazing on this guitar. Really something to see! Extremely clean condition. All electronics, neck, frets are solid. I just set this up with new strings and checked intonation. It's ready to play and enjoy. Weight is just over 6 pounds, 10 ounces. This limited edition guitar was only made for a couple years. I've sold these before and they go fast, so grab it before someone else does! I do a full cleaning and setup on all guitars. (Details on my setups and packing at bottom of listing.) Thanks for looking.
The mini-humbuckers are known for a clear brilliant tone. They will break up nicely but can also achieve great clean tones. Very versatile. Obviously this axe is going for a retro 70s vibe so getting vintage sounds will be no problem. Plug into a good tube amp and let your Frampton come alive. The all mahognay body and neck are great tone woods. Thin finish won't impede your tone, so expect plenty of sustain, which will only increase as time goes by and the finish continues to wear.

The SG Special ’70s Tribute offers all the quality and performance that has made the guitar so popular with hard-gigging guitarists since its introduction in 1983, with crucial updates that ally it to many legendary Gibson guitars of the 1970s. Wrap your hand around the unique thin-to-thick neck carve of the SG Special ’70s Tribute—with a profile that starts out slim at the lower frets and becomes increasingly chunky as you slide toward the joint—and you’re rocketed straight back to an age of fierce, fast soloing. In the tone department, it carries a pair of new Dual Blade Alnico Mini Humbuckers for great, vintage-edged tones with plenty of contemporary versatility. To top it off, the SG Special ’70s Tribute looks great in your choice of Vintage Sunburst, Cherry, Ebony Black or Silver Burst finish, all in grain-textured satin nitrocellulose lacquer.
Like the most revered vintage SGs, the SG Special ’70s Tribute starts with a solid mahogany body. This classic tonewood offers superb depth and balance, and is extremely light for optimum playing comfort. Carved to the traditional asymmetrical double-cutaway shape, the SG also offers outstanding upper-fret access. Like many great Gibsons of the ’70s, the neck is made from maple and carved to a profile unique to the era, which measures .800” deep at the 1st fret and increases to .963” at the 12th, with a volute behind the nut to both strengthen the headstock joint and enhance neck resonance. A chocolate-brown baked maple fingerboard carries small block inlays, and terminates in a PLEK-cut Corian™ nut with a width of 1-11/16”.
