Since this guitar arrived in the shop, we have invested a significant amount of quality time getting to know its virtues. Outfitted with a set of original P-90s, it produces an impressively broad range of tones, from Townshend raunch to surprisingly uptown faux-jazz (the neck pickup, in particular, was a revelation—one of the best-sounding P-90s we have ever heard). Furthermore, the wide, thin shallow c neck profile typical of this model year yields easy bends and fast shredding, a la 1970s icon Frank Marino. The original tuners had been removed when we bought the guitar, but were included in the case. We have since reinstalled them, with conversion bushings added to ensure a proper fit. The guitar is currently set up with an intonatable tailpiece, but the original lightning bar wraparound is in case. The bridge pickup shows evidence of significant pick erosion, but is still structurally sound. Typical wear on back of neck and top of headstock and a few dings on body (see photos), but no breaks or cracks. In all, one of the very best early SGs we have come across in recent memory, and somewhat unusual in that it is a stop tailpiece, non-Vibrola model. Sold!
