Gibson sg special
Serial number dates to 1968, but the pots are dated 1969.
This is a one owner guitar from new, the owner of this guitar grew up with and was the best friend of famed producer Chris Tsangarides, and they played in the same band together as teenagers. He also went on to tell us that if Chris ever needed a guitar for recording, that needed the P90 sound, he would borrow this! (Although he doesn't know which recordings it would have been used on.)
Purchased in the West End, brand new, in 1969.
Great to see one without the famed headstock break or changed tuners!
She started out as a Cherry red but many gigs around the Mediterranean have faded the finish to a more brown natural.
Also the favourite guitar of Pete Townsend in the who late '60's early 70's era. And some bloke called Angus!
