About This Listing

Gibson SG 3 made on March 19, 2008 in Nashville (USA) in limited colour Aged Polaris White and produced in very few pieces. Relicated by the famous Wildwood Guitars in Louisville (Colorado, USA) and bought by me personally there, selecting it among many for its unique look and sound different from all the others in the shop (some of them much more expensive).

The body of this edition is slightly more contoured than current SGs, like the original 1967 3-pickup edition (the one Hendrix used), with mahogany selected for lightness and resonance. The nitrocellulose varnish based on the original formula reveals a one-piece body. The finish, in the rare Aged Polaris White with "heavy relic" treatment presents a magnificent aging, with the nickel-plated hardware beautifully oxidized consistently.
The headstock is slightly larger and angled at 17°, just like the '60s SGs, and is fitted with Kluson Waffle Back tuners. The neck is the '60s slim taper, which is fast and very comfortable but still gives a great sustain feeling to the guitar. The fretboard is made of rosewood with mother of pearl dots. The pickguard is the classic '67 batwing. The electronic circuit is configured with the '50 Vintage Wiring that guarantees a more airy and brilliant sound, allowing for more nuances when running the tone and volume pots. It is equipped with three monstrous Gibson 490 humbuckers that can be mixed in 6 configurations thanks to the handy "duck mouth" switch.

Just performed professional set up, with brand new strings (Ernie Ball), tuners and electronics cleaning.
Original Wildwood Guitars hard case included.
