Iconic guitar as used by Pete Townshend, Tonny Iommi and Carlos Santana.
Price - £ 1850.00
This guitar is a real players guitar. It is in fair/used condition – but this is not going to go in a display case. Once you plug it in and crank it up you will understand why these late 1960s models are nigh on impossible to find. This is the real deal – a guitar that was being used shortly after Tommy was released. A guitar that was being used just as Black Sabbath were formed. A guitar for the Woodstock generation. You don’t need to worry about this superb instrument taking time to break in – you are already part of history as soon as you pick her up. Remember, this is not a reissue.
She has no neck breaks and plays fast and true. There have been some changes as this has been a hard working guitar.
Tuners: Gibson deluxe
Bridge pickup: Gibson T-top (body routed to accommodate this )
Truss rod cover: non original.
As shown in the pictures, this guitar has been gigged for most of its working life and has far too many knocks, cuts and bruises to mention. But this is a near 50 year old legend and there are severely limited opportunities to obtain guitars of this vintage nowadays. This is a great investment which will only increase in value.
Comes with a period correct Gibson Sonex 180 hard case.
