Really rare SG 3 in black. Huge sound!.

This is a killer 2008 Gibson SG Faded 3 pickup guitar in black. It is in excellent cosmetic and playing condition. All original except maybe the Tone Selector switch. Neck and frets in great shape. I've just set it up and it plays so awesome. Three monster hum buckers and a ton of tones to be found with the 6-position tone selector. Mahogony body and neck--total sustain and tone. Only a few minor marks (see pics), very clean condition. No case. Details on my setups and packing at bottom of listing.) Thanks for looking.

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!

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.
