So I finally landed a 2005 Gibson 1962 SG Reissue that was made exclusively for Guitar Center back in the day (2005 - 2006). I had one about 10 years ago but I reluctantly had to part ways with it and have missed it ever since. When I began searching for my long lost friend a few months ago I noticed there is hardly any information to be found on the web about these fine instruments, so I figured I would start a thread exclusively for the exclusive. Mostly easily recognized by the factory installed Grover Kidney Tuners, this was the Custom Shop model that came complete with ultra thin "Authentic Aged Faded Cherry" nitrocellulose finish on a vintage spec solid lightweight mahogany body that is beveled as per the original. Thin "Vintage Style" single ply cream neck binding and thin holly headstock veneer for better resonance. A Historically accurate neck joint with original style heel and long tenon which extends into the rhythm pickup cavity for maximum tone. However the most attractive specification which made these particular SG's so desirable was their own unique 60's Slim Taper neck profile. A beautiful neck carve that fit players' hands like a glove. Not too thick and not too thin... it had just the right amount of girth. (That's what she said) I never had to worry with any neck wobble as I do on the necks of the '61 reissues and could comfortably play for hours. I'm not knocking other SG models because I love them all but this one is definitely "The One" for me. So dear fellows, those of you who are fortunate enough to own and wield one of these beautiful axes please show your support and post your photos and known specs. I'd like this to be the rally point for those seeking to share and gather knowledge on a rare model. I hope to post more specifications that are unique and definite to this model once I've discovered them. I'm hoping that some of you guys will join in and lend a hand to help collect information. Cheers!! P.S. I'll have photo's posted of my own personal Guitar Center '62 reissue SG as soon as I can figure out what's going on with my media folder.
