1974 SG Deluxe in Jacksonville FL area for $900

This is a non-stock early 70's Gibson SG Deluxe (or is it Deluxe SG?) from when Norlin was trying to reduce costs so they added the control plate on the front of the guitar.  This one looks like it is a Walnut body - some people like that in an SG.  It also has full sized humbuckers which is nice since some of these guitars have the black mini humbuckers with the funky (i.e. cheap) flip switches.  This one should be a player - though it's a shame the Bigsby tailpiece is gone.  Still a rare find and a decent price for a 35+ year old Gibby.  Oh and I can't forget for all of the oh-so fussy afficianados out there - it has a "volute." hehe  - JC

I am reposting items here that are listed on CRAIGSLIST throughout the USA. I am not selling any of these items and I cannot facilitate the sale of anything here - so please do not comment or post questions like "Is this still available?" or "I am interested in your guitar please call me, etc." You need to contact the seller directly by calling the phone number listed on the post or by going to the CL listing and emailing them. NEW FEATURE: Click on the title of the CL Listing inside my post to LINK thru to the original Post. If the original CL listing is deleted the item most likely is no longer available. Thanks for checking out my blog and GOOD LUCK!

Please don't call, contact, bother or harass these sellers long after their post is expired. Take for granted if the listing is over 30 days old that the guitar or amp is LONG GONE! Thank you.
