Gibson SG Standard 1972

by Leigh Thornton


This is my early 1972 vintage Gibson "LIMITED EDITION" for sale, I've used this instrument for recording purposes only, the SG never left the studio, it has never been on the stage and is in magnificent condition and rates as COLLECTOR'S ITEM in MUSEUM QUALITY, frets show no wear at all, there are no scratches on the finish, the sound is typical vintage humbucker, very fat indeed!

This is a so called limited edition Gibson SG Standard, there were only 100 or less instruments manufactured, fitted with the 50's
U-shaped 3-piece neck which doesn't have the usual binding. Everything about this guitar is original, the SG looks and plays at its best. Instrument comes with certificate of origin.

Asking price is $7.500,- OBO


* Solid one piece mahagony body
* Vintage transparent cherry nitrocellulose finish
* Two vintage 50's humbucking pickups
* Typical Gibson 50's vintage U-shaped mahagony three-piece
neck, ebony fingerboard with mother-of-pearl block inlays
* Bigsby vibrato
* Texas Style Floating Saddle Bridge
* Nickel hardware
* Custom made hard case

Hi Leigh,

I'm looking for more info on these 72 SGs without the neck binding. Do you have any links or official information about these so called limited runs?
