"In 1961, Gibson introduced a totally new solid body guitar--the SG. Unlike anything before, the SG was light, sleek, sculptured, and featured unequalled access to every fret. With a raw, full sound, the SG became an instant rock classic, and it's been in continuous production for over 30 years.

The 30th Anniversary model is based on the Custom version, with three gold-plated Gibson '57 Classic humbuckers which duplicate the sound of the original 'Patent Applied For' pickups. The body and neck are select mahogany, and are finished in Gibson's legendary 'TV Yellow' finish.

All plastic parts are aged by a special chemical process, and the bound peghead includes a special "30th Anniversary" inlay in genuine mother-of-pearl." - Gibson USA from September 1, 1992

The guitar is in excellent condition, and would be in mint condition if it wasn't for some surface checking. The checking is not easy to capture but I did my best. Checking can be seen in photos 20-24, 20/21 shows it across the majority of the headstock, 22 shows minor checking along the fingerboard binding, 23 shows minor checking on the backside of the tuning machine(s), and 24 shows minor checking along the rear strap button post.
