    Gibson USA SG Standard with Vibrola was 1990s made and has freshly received a JVG 66- Reborn Old Recreation makeover to vintage 60s spec ....SOLD OUT

SOLD OUT: OK this started in life as not too shappy of a genuine 1995 Gibson SG Standard cool but NOW with a few JVG-Reborn Old improvements .. we added a Maestro long Vibrola its a Gibson made in U.S.A. high Quality mahogany woods this is now a 1960's Recreation upgraded to some real fat vinage TONE- NOW.. read on - overall excellent condition with absolutely no cracks and no excused with no apologies..... for being such a badd @$$ come on just check it out, This Gibson SG Standard comes to you a done deal with the look the feel and the real sound of the American classic 1960's SG.... The reason I bought this guitar in the first place was to recreate one like one of my alltime favorite guitars I ever had which was a 1966 Gibson SG Standard with vibrola which can be seen here on the website... This US 1990's guitar also has that great looking Mahogany wood its beautiful grain caught my eye for sure, at that time it had a stop tail and common apearence even the logo looked to new and not enough patina for my personal taste I don't know about you but I prefer mine looking truly vintage and looking right , So I removed all stop tail business and dowled those 2 holes with mahogany and then touched up those areas and a few other nicks and a few chips to bare wood and matched the cherry lacquer and consealed the dowled area ( the vibrola pretty much obscures the dowled areas ) at the same time then oversprayed my aged cherry color lacquer ( not bright like the standard new finish was but to my minds eye more closely resemble my 66's cherry which is deeper red with a touch of mahogany to the cherry and so then went onto the full front & back respray thin nitro tinted lacquer same formula as old 1960's Gibson so it really deepened the look and richened up the color of the finish to like old Gibson specs..neck was already darker and more like this from factory and also was excellent besides one nick so I left the neck alone and this neck is slick like glass and is a nice handfull too barley a scratch on here never any cracks or issues, ALSO I removed the orig 90's klusons and then I sanded & prepped the front of the headstock and logo area so I could then with my aged nitro color carefully eye matched the rather new - white looking logo & crest mother of pearl shadded it until to my eye it looks just right so now its aged to look about 45+ years old....Please see those pics for detail, ALSO I added a genuine Historic Truss rod cover and ambered the togel switch tip NOW it looks exactly like my old 1966 , See the pics of those details. The neck is super straight,This neck on this one by the way is the correct shape and headstock angle just like my 66's with what is a must = NO VOLUTE this looks accurate and like the real deal!.. all based on my 66 . this was a must for realism for me... MORE ABOUT THIS GUITAR: The frets on this SG are excellent and have the prefered fret edge bindings of a high end guitar..( not all have that detail you know ) also the inlays on this SG are the correct inlays true to old school and made of cellulose nitrate and really looks exactly like my old 66. Then I removed the cheaper Kluson tuners installed by Gibson, and did what we always did back in the day to our Gibsons that have the Klusons that worked soso at best and that is to change out the tuner gears to the best of the old school tuners had to offer and thatis vintage nickel Grovers... Check them out they are the real deal and work superbly!.. the bottom holes lined up perfectly for this conversion so no added hold so it looks great and the top holes were close to top top edge of tuners and so I filled with mahogany and cherry finish brush tip touched up only and are gone now and it looks great too... better then the old days!...anyways onto the Vintage Gibson nickel Maestro Vibrola unit I installed is an excelent fit and really belongs on this fine 1960's correct Gibson SG Standard. Onto the JVG tone upgrade the Original Gibson USA Humbuckers sounded good before the upgrade but to get true classic vintage tone I had to change the cheap modern tiny nothing tone capasitors to the real .022 x400 Sprague Black Beauties used from about 1962 threw the 1960s vintage we offer these for $160 a set they are real 60's nos. early 1960's I use these to dial in our real vintage Gibson tone of the 1960's... This guitar NOW HAS the look - the feel & most importantly now the sound of my old friend my vintage 1966 Gibson SG Standard with its nickel hardware and slightly aged patina finish.. Everyone will think this is your real 1966 SG std... it can be your secret.IT comes with a no logo vintage case that has the old gold linning so it looks 60's correct....
