The ’62 Reissue SG features: a mahogany body with the original Heritage Cherry finish, a 1-piece mahogany neck, a bound rosewood fingerboard with trapezoid inlays, (2) Bill Lawrence designed “The Original” humbucking pickups (’88 – ’89), Gibson Deluxe stamped Kluson style tuners, Tune-O-Matic bridge and stop tailpiece, nickel hardware, and the original hard shell case.
As briefly mentioned above, this particular example is 100% all original. The original Heritage Cherry red finish is rich, attractive, and authentic. The only real visible wear on the guitar is some superficial belt buckle wear on the back. The electronics are complete and intact. The original pots all work perfectly and both Bill Lawrence designed humbuckers are strong and efficient, and they happen to sound particularly good. The neck is straight and plays fantastic. The neck profile features the famous slim taper shape, and feels incredibly comfortable. The first five frets display some minimal and expected wear.
It appears that at some point the previous owner forgot the 3-digit security code, and removed the top portion of the locking latch.
