Red Faded Gibson SG w/ HardCase
This guitar is no longer for sale (sold on 2007-09-30)
Price : US $510.00
This Auction is for a Gibson SG I bought about 6 months ago but I can't get away from my old Les. Great guitar, but I've only played it about a dozen times or so. It really need to be played not a show piece.
A Little SG History
In 1961, the Les Paul was redesigned with a thinner body and 2 sharp
cutaway horns that making the upper frets more accessible while
lowering production costs. The new guitar was popular, but Les Paul the
guitarist did not like it and asked to have his name removed. Gibson
renamed the model the 'SG' which was short for 'solid guitar'. Though
Les Paul's name was officially removed from the model in 1961, the
plastic Les Paul nameplates (positioned between the rhythm pickup and
fingerboard) were in abundance in the Gibson factory and SG models
having these nameplates were built and sold by Gibson up to end of
1963. SGs have been the choice of world-class artists such as Pete
Townsend, Eric Clapton, Tony Iommi, and Angus Young.
