1964 Gibson SG

Background: This SG has been in the owner’s hands since the early seventies. In the late sixties, the headstock was abused, puttied and painted with a black spray can. The owner wanted the instrument restored to original condition (that is, 50 years old and unabused) along with a return to original style pickups.

Restoration: Extensive work was done to rebuild the headstock, tint and match original faded red color, and relic work to keep the headstock looking original to 50 years of wear and tear. Pickups were wound and relic’d to match. All aspects of the guitar were returned to as close as original as possible.
