Old wood + all new hardware = a player's dream

This original 1968 SG Standard has been outfitted with completely new hardware and pickups. The body and neck are in very good condition with no cracks, breaks or repairs -- just light overall play wear. At some point in this guitar's life it was stripped and refinished to its current medium brown color with some darkening on the guitar's sides, bevels and neck joint area. The finish is shiny and free from any major scratches, checking, etc., but I found it to be a bit sticky on the back of the neck (for my liking anyway) so I stripped the back of the neck and finished it with tung oil. Now it's silky smooth and plays great.

Pics available here:

Approximately 8 lbs on my bathroom scale. Ships in a new Kaces hard shell case.

New hardware includes:
- Seymour Duncan Pearly Gates bridge pickup
- Gibson Classic '57 neck pickup
- Gibson NOS lyre vibrola
- Tonepros ABR bridge with locking studs
- Kluson double line/double ring tuners
- WD pickguard
- Gibson truss rod cover and switch tip

Price drop 12/29 - TGP price: $1,700 PayPal, includes shipping and insurance to the lower 48. No trades, please, unless you'd be interested in this as a partial trade toward an R9 Les Paul

I've had a couple of inquiries about the neck dimensions.
The nut is the typical late 60's Gibson width: 1-9/16"

The depth of the slim profile neck is .82" at 1st fret and .99" at 12th.
