    ciao!
    I'm new here on the forum and wanted to show you the SG I found for my son here in Italy. I would like to have more information on this 1988 model especially on the pickups, they have a rough finish not smooth like the usual ones I see mounted on other gibson.
    I ask you for information on pickups because mine in the neck does not work, I would like to find a correct original one to replace it, but I don't know what to look for. for now, to maintain the originality of the SG I had it modified to single coil but I can't wait to hear it sound as it should
    thank you
    Mick

    grazie del ben venuto!
    non é proprio mia la chitarra ma di mio figlio, io ne apprezzo il suono e l'oggetto in sé... ma sono un fanatico dell'originalità e sto cercando un pickup originale

    I’m not so sure the information is right on the spec sheet, it says they’re made between 83 and 88. My 3-knob special is exactly identical to the one on the spec sheet and it’s a 91. I bought mine brand new in 91 from Guitar Center in Hollywood, still have the original sales receipt in the case!
