1993 Gibson SG "Special Edition" TV Yellow finish, with Ebony fretboard. Not many made this color, and they rarely show up for sale...  Read more...
( everyone KNOWS they are a future collectors item, soon ) This is 25 years old now, and the color is REALLY ageing / ambering, with age... Just beautiful....The Upscale Ebony Fretboard keeps the neck stiff, straight, and IN TUNE. Stamped "SG SPECIAL ED" under the finish, in the P/U routs No cracks, no issues ( Has a dealer's decal on back of headstock, easily removable ) , and big stock frets.... It is an early enough Gibson, to have "Alnico II" magnets, not Alnico V...and sound old PAF P/U's... Gibson still had Honduras Mohogany and African Ebony back in 1993, and is a superior sounding guitar, because of it
