1979 Gibson SG Exclusive

Great color combination on this Gibson from the late seventies. Finished off nicely with cream pick guard, block inlays, brass nut, fully bound neck & Grover tuners, this was one of the finest playing guitars I've experienced. With the jumbo frets & ultra low action, this axe practically played itself (like butter). It also featured factory pick-up coil tap controlled by a rotary "Tap" knob. Even the Dead Milkmen sound good using this axe in the video for "Punk Rock Girl". This was my third SG (25 years ago), & was the best one by far to date at that time. Only 478 of this model manufactured (one year only, 1979), & there were a couple available on the web recently. I'll file this in the "sold way too cheap" file along with my 1962 Fender Jazz. Oops!
