Gibson SG Special Electric Guitar - £379

Got this SG for sale - its a 2005 model that is unplayed. It still has the plastic on the pick guard.

The guitar was hit on the headstock and it cracked either side of the neck (see pics). The crack has been repaired by injecting Luther's wood glue with a very fine bore hypodermic needle into the area and filling the surface with clear lacquer.

This crack is not the traditional crack that Gibson's tend to suffer from due to the weak point created by the truss rod nut cavity - if so, splines of mahogany would be added under the neck / headstock joint area.

Guitar Info
The guitar was made at the Nashville Plant, TN, USA February 4th, 2005 - Production Number: 346. Gibson’s Nashville plant was opened in Tennessee 1974. All electric models and some acoustic models currently made at this factory. This facility has an average production rate of 220 guitars a day. Each guitar is built by hand and takes about 4 to 6 weeks to complete.

These SG's go for about £650+ new - grab yourself a bargain at £379 ! The guitar also includes a soft padded gig-bag which is not pictured. Local pickup in Cardiff South Wales or I can post it for £15.
