Up for sale, a 1963 Gibson TG-0 tenor guitar in collector-grade condition and in perfect working order. A very rare tenor version of Gibson's LG-0, the TG-0 boasts a 22 5/8" scale length and a ladder-braced mahogany body. The TG-0 delivers a clear, chiming treble response with the underlying warmth and breadth of mahogany as a tonewood. The guitar is featherweight at 3lbs 7oz, professionally setup here at Mike & Mike's Guitar Bar with fresh strings and easy-playing action.
The mahogany neck splits the difference between a U and V shape, measuring .870" deep at the 1st fret and .975" at the 9th. The thick Brazilian rosewood fretboard retains the original medium jumbo frets which have good meat and show no wear. The neck is straight, and the truss rod is responsive and optimally adjusted. The bone nut measures 1 3/16" in width, and the headstock features a flawless gold Gibson silkscreen with gleaming open-gear nickel strip tuners.
The Brazilian rosewood bridge sits flush with the top, and the saddle has plenty of height. The Walnut gloss nitro lacquer finish is framed by tortoise top binding and accented by a black pickguard. There is very light wear on the back lower bout body edge and just a few additional tiny marks on the body as a whole.
The original black chipboard case is included.
