Last time listing it, lowest price, guna keep it under the bed if no one takes it this time.

This is the Gibson you want.
Lighter than a lester, brighter than a 335, and just a bit less attitude than a V.

The SG, stunning in white.

Gave it a setup (Sept 2nd) so it is absolutely good to go.
I let a bloke I know have a noodle on it and he was blown away by the weight (what weight?) and all around feel.

Another acquaintance couldn't help but pick it up a second time for another hoon on it after deciding it wasn't his cup of tea. Who knows what you'll think? :)

Not only is this an SG, but it probably is THE SG you're looking for.

Anyway.

All the good bits of Gibson right here : Gorgeous dark rosewood board, neck binding, '57 classic pickups, pots that actually work TOGETHER rather than against each other... Good wood throughout the guitar, tuners are solid and so forth.

Sounds fab through my AC30; have played it through Marshalls, boutique builds, Peaveys, Fenders, and it just brings everything to life. The pickups are all about clarity AND power, and the amount of sustain it has is tremendous for such a thin and light body.

Unmodified, save the straplocks. Strap goes with it.

Serial is shonkily pictured because of the finish - if it were a dark colour it'd show up heaps better. It is also stamped "Made in USA 2010".

The two marks on it are pictured.

Will swap LP traditional locally (Pukekohe to Whangaparoa) - Cash or gear your way. But please, only traditionals or maybe a standard. These are the only things I've got GAS for.

What've I missed?

Post is at your risk. Once it's out of my care and into the hands of a postal service, I can't be held responsible for anything that might (but probably won't) happen to it in transit. Feel free to sus your own trusted courier if you'd prefer.

Questions are great, but please keep them relevant and don't kick my tyres.
