    Not taken any pics myself, but here's one from the original advert of my black SG G -310. Will get some better pics at the weekend weather permitting.

    Really like that Classic. Is the neck profile on that Classic fairly chunky?

    No, it's a 2016 Gibson SG Special T.

    The mini humbuckers sound really good but I bought this guitar to hot rod. I swapped out the PUs for some P90 size Dimarzios. I have Floyd Rose FRX on order that I'm going to install on it.

    She was made in the Gibson plant right before they move from Kalamazoo MI. A local worker who wasn't staying with the company after its move was given the chance to keep some unfinished units. He kept an unfinished LP standard, a country gentleman body and this body and neck custom unfretted. The SN is P stamp that at the time meant blems or not for sale seconds.

    He passed away some years later and his family decided to part with these items. I purchased this SG which he had fretted and painted black for just under $800. Also I got this story from his daughter who sold it to me. No electronics, bridge or guard. Just the HB routes and cavaities. I added the stinger since the paint wasn't lacquered over and obviously everything else.

    It's a tone monster and plays really well. It's a light rosewood board for a custom and I believe was ordered for someone back then but wasn't up to spec for whatever reason.
