Welcome to another fine guitar from The Old Europe! Please make sure to read the entire description below carefully, and look at all the pictures.

General introduction and background:

Very nice Johnny Guitar SG-style guitar. This kind of guitar was the first solidbody electric guitar made by Samick in Korea in the mid 1970s. It exists with various brands and variations, for instance Luxor, Gracia, Hondo and others. The greatest thing about it is that it features goldfoil-pickups!

As always, the instrument has been serviced completely and is ready to be played immediately.

Measurements, weight and other specs:

-Scale:  620 mm

-Nut: 4,1 mm

-Weight: 2,92 kg

-Pickups: Two original goldfoil pickups, measuring at ~6k each. Controlled with two slider switches, master volume and tone.

-Body: plywood

-Neck: slim D, small and slim frets with rounded radius, some Asian hardwood with unknown wood fretboard (was originally painted black)

 

Condition:

-Body: Good condition with no major marks of use, some scratches, dings and dongs

-Neck: neck is straight, frets are in good condition (8/10) with no buzz or fretting out;

-Hardware: good shape;

-Electrics: fully functional

-Originality: all original except for the vibrato arm and some screws

 

Sound and Playability:

-Playability and string action: The playability is good with a string action of 1,8 mm at the 12th fret. If you want it lower, you can do that, but probably wouldn’t work well with the rounded vintage fretboard and small frets.

-Sound: A very nice twangy tone, but not bitey as a Tele, more pearly. Please watch the video for a sound demo. The video is not this actual guitar, but a similar one.

 

Repairs, Service:

As always, the instrument has been serviced completely and is ready to be played immediately.

-Completely cleaned

-Frets polished and fretboard oiled

-New set of Pyramid 10 gauge nickel strings put on

-Ready to be played (just tune it up);

 

Auxiliary stuff:

-No original gigbag or case available. The guitar will be wrapped well, and put into a sturdy cardboard box with lots of filler material. If you wish I can buy a fitting case at your costs.
