  • Sale
  • Regular price £3,795.00


1966 Gibson SG Special, Cherry finish with Vibrola. All original guitar in good  condition. It comes supplied in a new SKG hard case. These specials have hot, P-90 pickups, on a lightweight mahogany body. This Guitar has numerous but small scuffs and dings in the finish, mainly around the edges of the body and headstock. The back of the neck is relatively clean with only a couple of small dings. The frets have been dressed but still have plenty of life left in them. Fully set up in our workshop with a fresh set of strings. Serial number: 550579. Weight: 7 lbs. Nut width: 40mm. Depth at the 1st fret: 20.8 mm. Depth at 12th 24.5 mm.

The Gibson SG Special was introduced in 1961 as a "mid-level" guitar. This set-neck mahogany guitar was a step up from the SG Junior with a pair of P-90 pickups, three-way switching, individual volume and tone controls, and a bound neck with dot inlays. 1966 saw a slight redesign of the SG Special, introducing a larger pickguard that went across the pickups and mid-way through the upper bout. 1966 also saw this model get the Vibrola tailpiece as standard, though stoptail models trickled out until early 1967.
