Body: Mahogany

Neck: Mahogany neck with a medium “D” profile, 1 9/16” wide nut, rosewood fretboard, 12” radius, and block inlays

Pickups/Hardware: Grover tuners, two non-original Gibson mini-humbuckers (rated at 6.7 kOhms in the neck and 6.7 k in the bridge), three-way pickup selector switch, independent volume and tone controls

Cosmetic Condition: With only some play wear on the neck pickup ring and cover, the top of this guitar is awesome! The back and sides have a couple small dings but are still looking quite nice. Save for one small indent, the neck is perfectly smooth and glossy up to the headstock which has very small edge wear on the crown. This SG is ready to rip!

Playability: The strings are nice and low, play great, and ring out clearly across the board.

Modifications/Repairs: The headstock has been repaired and the entire guitar has been oversprayed. Non-original Gibson pickups were installed and the harness was rewired with CTS pots Emerson .047 caps. The toggle switch, tuners (Grover), and one knob have been replaced.
