Gibson SG Std "Second " with Bigsby Trem...1980..
We have just taken in this 1980 SG with a Bigsby trem fitted
At some point in its life it has had a Khaler trem fitted, probably during the roaring rock period in the 90's when locking trems were the 'thing'...this has since been removed and the Bigsby fitted, much more in keeping with its look!
It has 'second' stamped under the serial number on back of the headstock...this was simply put on Gibsons if it had a slight defect in the finish or grain on the body, it has nothing to do with its build or structure...we back this with a money back guarantee ...and it now be impossible to pick out a finish defect on a guitar this old! It just makes it a little more affordable as its priced lower.
These older USA guitars are always a good investment too as values simply go up year on year.
The guitar is in good condition, plays and sounds as expected...fantastic .
Pickups pots , tuners etc are all original and in in full working order .
This guitar comes with the original "Chainsaw" plastic hard case as shown in the pictures. Check out the cost alone for one of these now.
We always view these mods to older guitars as part of its history and just adds to its character! ......and this one has been returned back to as good as original. .
A real opportunity to own an old classic.
