My first Gibson ever...'67 SG Special!!


Recommended Posts

Here she is...I got her in '77 for $450--my Dad loaned me half, and I used my lawn mowing money for the rest.

 

Pic I took right after buying it:

Gigging with it a few years later, after I joined the Air Force:

...and I still have it today...set up Pete Townsend style (holds tuning a bit better)...I'm just a bit fatter...LOL.

Nice piece indeed!

 

I can imagine what a pill that was to swallow in 1977.

$450 was alot of money!!!

 

Just goes to prove what money well-spent is truly worth.

 

Congrats.

 

 

Didn't like the Maestro?

 

 

 

The Maestro is in the case...holds tuning better without it. I still pull it out of the case for an occasional church gig. :D

 

The was a full summer's lawn mowing money, plus what I had saved in the bank.
