I'm selling my early1986 Gibson SG-62 with Tim Shaw humbuckers.

"It was introduced in 1986, slotting between the Standard and newly reintroduced Custom (now based on the SG-62), and was produced until 1991. As the name suggests, it was an attempt at recreating the 1962 SG Standard. They are sometimes considered "Pre-Historic" reissues like the contemporary Les Paul reissues, but there are a couple differences. For one, the SG-62 was never ultimately replaced by a Historic Custom Shop model, nor was its direct replacement; the '61 Reissue, which went on to be produced alongside the Historic reissue introduced in 2000. The SG-62 also used the normal serial number system unlike Pre-Historic Les Pauls. That said, it's fair to say they were the closest SG equivalent of a Pre-Historic Les Paul.This was the first year Gibson produced this model (1986-1991) and is know as a Pre-Historic model.

Compared to the 1986-1991 SG Standard, the SG-62 had a slimmer neck, a more historically accurate pickguard, deeper beveling (particularly in the cutaways), the neck set at the 22nd fret with a '61 style heel joint, the traditional control layout, nickel plated hardware and an ABR-1 bridge. The major differences from a real '62 Standard are the lack of a vibrola (the stopbar tailpiece was not offered on an SG until 1973), the lack of a "Les Paul" script on the truss rod cover and the body shape, beveling and pickguard shape still being off."

I've owned it for many years. The guitar is in amazing condition, weighs approximately 6.2 lbs, all original, and has been stored all these years. Comes with the original case.
