+ shipping

Out Of Stock
Up for sale, a 2020 Gibson Custom Shop Historic 1963 SG Special in 100% original condition and in perfect working order, complete with the original hardshell case and CoA. Finished in VOS Cherry Red nitro lacquer, the solid mahogany construction yields a lively, detailed and warm natural response. Featherweight at only 6lbs 7oz, this SG delivers a broad range of tones from glassy, articulate cleans to rich midrange growl and overdriven roar. Sensitive to picking dynamics, the P-90 pair is ripping and aggressive in the bridge position, and broad and smooth at the neck. This Custom Shop 1963 SG Special benefits from a professional setup here at Mike & Mike’s Guitar Bar with 10-46 strings, low action, and accurate intonation.

The VOS Cherry Red nitro lacquer finish exhibits one cleanly repaired split at the lower bout adjacent to the rear strap button, with targeted lacquer touch-up. Wear is otherwise limited to a few light finish scratches and tiny marks on the body as a whole. The neck profile retains its smooth gloss.
