Gibson SG 62 Standard Model Solid Body Electric Guitar (1987), made in Kalamazoo, Michigan, serial # 81547551, cherry lacquer finish, mahogany body and neck, rosewood fingerboard, original brown tolex hard shell case.

This 1987 SG is a nicely done re-issue of the 1962 Les Paul/SG Standard, lacking only the quirky side-to-side vibrato unit and short-lived "Les Paul" markings of the original. The instrument is basically correct without being EXACTLY period authentic, but looks and plays very well. The neck is just a bit chunkier than most original '62s but retains the fairly flat profile characteristic of this period's SGs. The bridge pickup is a Gibson Shaw-era humbucker while the bridge pickup was changed to a Seymour Duncan 59BL PAF re-issue. Both sound great giving this SG a brighter, more fluid sound than some which cranks up to raunch easily enough. This is a nice example of post-Norlin Gibson finally re-discovering its classic instruments and returning to their roots in the 1980s.
Overall length is 39 3/4 in. (101 cm.), 13 1/4 in. (33.6 cm.) wide at lower bout, and 1 1/4 in. (3.2 cm.) in depth, measured at side of rim. Scale length is 24 3/4 in. (629 mm.). Width of nut is 1 11/16 in. (43 mm.).

This guitar appears played in but not abused showing dings, scratches scuffs (mostly on the back) and light plating loss but no heavy wear. The plastic pickup rings have some worn down spots from picking and adjusting the bridge screws. The pickguard has some scuffing and a small ding in the face. As noted the bridge pickup has been changed to a Duncan PAF reissue, but all else is original including the pots and wiring The original frets show some minor wear and the guitar play s very nicely, complete in the original brown case which is fairly well worn but still serviceable. Overall Excellent - Condition.
