    Default Fresh off the bench - 77 Ibanez SG

    Had this one about 2 weeks. The fingerboard was off from the nut to the 10th fret and it needed a good cleaning, with fresh setup and new strings. Cleaned all the greenish black gunk from the open joint, and reglued with Titebond. Touched up the finish with white StewMac superglue, topped with a couple coats of TruOil for a glossy shine. Used up a big wad of NevrDull to get the nasty green stuff off the hardware so the gold looks decent again. Fresh strings and a low action setup. Real bone nut, narrow neck, medium frets polished up nicely yielded a sweet playing classic axe. The client will love it, he's picking it up this afternoon.... Yes, it has those semi-legendary Gotoh Gold Star tuning machines installed. I have gold pickguard screws on order to replace those funky gray phillips head things.

    Very nice looking guitar. I love white on an SG (for some reason I totally hate white on an LP however). The SG type is an interesting guitar for me...some things I love about it and some things that I hate with nothing in-between.

    I pulled out my old Ibanez catalogs and the client was wrong... It's not a '77.... it's a '73. By 1977 Ibanez was only making original models - no copies. But it has the Ibanez "Pro" headstock shape and inlay.

    That is indeed a '77 headstock, they still had copies thru most of that year.

    That Ibanez guitar sure does have a Mary Ford vibe to it where it makes you warm & wonderful inside.
