Here's something that you don't see every day - a Gibson SG Standard with Maestro Vibrola crafted in 1965. This guitar represents a true icon of guitar design and craftsmanship. Originally conceived to rival the Fender Stratocaster, the SG underwent significant modifications in the early 1960s, resulting in the birth of the SG model as we know it today.

This particular SG Standard is a true stunner, showcasing a beautifully preserved cherry finish on its mahogany body. While it bears some signs of wear and tear, including minor dings and lacquer crazing, the overall aesthetic remains captivating, with the grain of the mahogany elegantly showcased.

The neck of this SG boasts a comfortable profile, offering a playing experience that's instantly gratifying. Unlike earlier models, the neck on this guitar feels substantial yet agile, providing excellent playability for both rhythm and lead playing. The fretboard exhibits signs of wear consistent with its age, and it has had a good refret sometime in the past - the new frets still have plenty of life left in them, and intonation is fantastic. Electrically, this guitar is in excellent condition, with all pot-codes dating back to 1965 and no signs of solder joint disturbance. The hardware, while showing some dulling, remains free from significant corrosion, adding to the vintage charm of this instrument.

Sonically, this SG delivers a unique perspective on the classic twin humbucker configuration. The neck pickup offers smoothness and warmth, while the bridge pickup provides biting articulation, resulting in a balanced and versatile tonal palette. Whether you're craving creamy lead tones or snarling rhythm chops, this SG delivers with finesse and character.

If you're in the market for a vintage SG to add to your collection, this 1965 SG is as good as it gets. With its stunning aesthetics, comfortable playability, and versatile tonal capabilities, this SG is sure to inspire countless hours of musical creativity. Don't miss out on the opportunity to make this iconic instrument your own. Includes non-original hardshell case.
