Gibson / SG Special / 1964 / Cherry Red / Guitar For Sale

Holy cow this guitar plays like absoluter butter!!!!! To me Gibson electrics from the early 60s have the best feel. Though this Special is right on the cusp of 1964 and 5 (250XXX  .... 1+11/16)) when you pick it up you'd SWEAR  it was a mid 1962! Not quite as flat in back as a 60-61 ... just a little more meat making it a much easier  guitar to play in tune since the 61s change of you breath on them with these thin neck body joints. But not it is also not baseball "bat-like"  as so many 63s and 1964s are. VERY 62!! Much more Les Paul era feel! Retaining almost all of it's original cherry red and with 2 strong P-90s and all orig electronics AND HAS A PERFECT NECK HEEL!!!  the only thing not original is an outstanding fret job with a new nut (orig in case) and a very creative trem arm that appears to have been a butter knife!! :-) .  At one time the orig tuners were off and now back on but there was a slight enlargement of the holes but not Grover or Schaller size boring. Just slight. There are a couple of small mounting screw extra holes underneath and invisible that also do not match the patterns of the previously mentioned brands.  Weighs in WITH TREM remember ... at exactly 7+1/4 lbs  so about 6.5 without. I have shown pics both with and without trem in case you "run it with a stop tail only!! The hard shell case may be from that era. I am honestly not sure but the purple interior would lean more 1969 or 70 in most cases. (pardon the pun).
