Old Gibson SG? Year?


Recommended Posts

It’s a Melody Maker, a 1962-1964 or so. It’s had a lot of alterations. The body has been routed to fit two humbucker pickups and a new pick guard was made. I wouldn’t restore it.  Any collector value was lost with those modifications but you now have a light weight old Gibson that probably plays better than a new Gibson equivalent. If you don’t have the original bridge/tailpiece combination, there are some aftermarket ones that fit fine and work much better than the basic original one.
