Regardless of the performance enhancing attributes that you’ll find on many of today’s guitars, there is still something magical and alluring about certain guitars from the 50’s and 60’s era – It might be the aesthetic appeal, the feel, the tone, a combination of factors, or indeed something else, that attracts you to any such vintage guitar – So let me introduce you to this Gibson SG Junior with a date of birth that appears to be 1967 – The serial number system around this period is not set in stone, but data does lean towards 1967, which is further supported by the ’67’ date that is just about visible on the original pots – Some buyers will always search long and hard for a ‘museum’ grade vintage guitar, that is 100% kosher and very clean, with a price tag to reflect its status  – Others pursue a ‘players’ grade vintage guitar, that still retains vintage character, but to many changes/additions will ensure a significant reduction in the price, yet the feel and tonal character is still present and correct – Although not 100% original this SG has more than enough attributes that will attract player and collector alike

Host of fact and info regarding this 1967 Gibson SG 

Playing and tonal character :- Hard to define in a few words – Yes it has character but I suppose it is  a case of what you are expecting and how you plan to utilise it – If you are looking for the one guitar that allows you play so many styles and push your playing to its limits, then chances are you won’t favour many such vintage guitars – Yet play them for what they are and there is something in there  that is magical, with no shortage of a mystical fairy dust (whatever that is) – They can be addictive, with a voice that is so suitable for one song, or a certain style and no modern guitars achieve the same – As part of a collection, such a guitar has its place – I sometimes think it is like owning an original 1967 MG – Look great, sound great and have an attraction – But would you drive it from London to Brighton everyday for work – Or would you have 2 cars and use the MG on a nice sunny day only for a drive in the countryside – The SG has a similar dilemma, it works for some songs, but chances are you’ll already own another guitar for other situations – In short it is loaded with character – It is a good example that will attract both players and collectors
