This is the one of the more sought after SG signatures. They are legendary and timeless guitars with an enormous following of musicians of all kind. The guitar was made in Gibson Nashville factory in the USA in 2000. The Gibson custom shop produced the limited edition Pete Townshend SG special model with a production run limited to 250 pieces worldwide and this one is #180 in that run. It faithfully reproduced the 1969 SG special that Pete played onstage during Woodstock, The Isle of Wight Festival and the famous Live at Leeds album. The Custom shop guitar came with a few extra goodies such as a replica anvil case.
The body and neck of the Pete Townshend SG are made of one piece mahogany. Compensated wrab-around stop-tailpiece, original Gibson P-90 Pickups, Chrome Hardware, Grover tuners, Cream binding on fingerboard with dot inlay and finished in classic heritage cherry.
The neck is slender and tapered and is a fast and a joy to play. The double cutaways, in conjunction with where the neck joins the body, allows for easy access to even the highest of the notes on the 22 fret neck. The neck has a bound rosewood fingerboard with pearl dot position markers. The headstock of the guitar has a Pete Townshend signature decal on the back of the headstock. The tuning pegs are Chrome aged Grover’s. The pickups are 2 black single coil soap bar P-90’s. Comes with a second Gibson USA case and all the case candy! This guitar was owned by a collector and remains in unplayed condition!!
