Body: Mahogany, full Polaris white refin
Neck: Mahogany neck with a medium “C” profile, 1 11/16” wide nut, rosewood fretboard, 12” radius, and dot inlays
Pickups/Hardware: Kluson Deluxe tuners, two P-90’s (rated at 8.0kOhms in the neck and 8.2k in the bridge), three-way pickup selector switch, independent volume and tone controls (Electronics all original, pots date to 1964)
Cosmetic Condition: The white refinish is looking nice and clean with some minor finish swirls but no serious wear. There are some usual pick marks on the guard as well as a square impression possibly from a sticker that was once on the pickguard. The back and sides are nice and clean for the most part with just a few small chips near the control plate and some light finish swirls. The neck is nice and glossy and feels great to play. The headstock has underwent a repair but looks good and is nice and stable with only some light scratches. This SG Special refin is looking great in a fresh(ish) coat of paint!
Playability: The strings are nice and low, play great, and ring out clearly across the board. There is moderate fret wear.
Modifications/Repairs: Headstock repair and refinish
