A few small dings in the neck but nothing major. Some paint missing around the sides and a few dents. Overall good condition. Nice slab-rosewood fretboard. Stop-bar has been replaced. Comes with Gibson hardcase!
It's more than just a coincidence that mahogany is one of the most prized woods for electric guitar design, and the Gibson USA SG Special '60s Tribute is a classic example of the use of this fine tonewood in an instrument that's both subtle and aggressive. The thin solid-mahogany body offers a considerable reduction on weight when compared to many other solidbody electrics, while presenting a warm, rich resonance with lots of harmonic depth and sparkle.
The guitar's solid mahogany neck is carved to a fast SlimTaper™ profile similar to SGs from the '60s, for superb in-the-hand comfort and outstanding playability, while it's glued in deep-set, long-tenon neck/body joint and 17-degree back angled headstock team up to provide a transference of neck resonance into the body that's far superior to other neck designs.
Two Gibson P-90 single-coil pickups with genuine Alnico V magnets—some of the finest reproductions of vintage P-90s currently available—yield everything from warm, vocal neck tones to plenty of bark and snarl from the bridge position, with round and funky tones in between, all at the flip of a three-way toggle switch. To enhance all this tonal splendor, a stopbar tailpiece provides a rock-solid anchor behind Gibson's legendary Tune-o-matic tailpiece, prized for its ability to enhance singing sustain while remaining highly adjustable to perfect your instrument's intonation.
At the other end of the neck, a PLEK-cut Corian nut ensures superior resonance and sustain.
