Condition: Excellent

Price: 8000.00

This is a 100% original 1974 Gibson SG double neck identical to Jimmy Page's guitar. It is in mint condition and is hardly ever played. It was never modified and all parts are original, including all electric parts, pick ups, etc. The only thing I did for holding better tuning was to fit mini-grovers which cost me a fortune (18 tuning pegs), and it holds perfect tuning. I had it set up when I did some recordings 12 years ago and it plays great. It has a phenomenal sound! The original tuning pegs are in the case and whoever buys it can put them back if wanted but for playability in perfect tune I would recommend to keep the mini-grovers on. The case is original and it has damaged bits in the corners but inside is great. Also the case handle is missing and I never had the original keys so that's missing too but for a 41 year old guitar these are to be expected. The guitar itself has no deep scratches even at the back only has a little one on one edge (back), one in the middle back and one on the back of the 12 string neck and one of the strap holders missing, but you only need one anyway. All can be seen on the photo gallery. If wanted I can send more photos to prospective buyers. This is a serious collectors item so no time wasters please. The guitar can be collected or be mailed on special delivery. Please send a query with full address for a quote on postage/delivery costs and insurance. All must be paid by buyer. The price of sale is net plus any postage/delivery/insurance costs added and paid in full before it leaves my house. Collection is preferable and for that, payment must be made in full in advance of collection. I live in Esher/Surrey/UK. Address to be given only to buyer after sale and full payment is completed. Please feel free to ring me on 00447886665493 to ask any questions about the guitar or e-mail phillmarshall@me.com  
Please note: prospective buyers can also find me on Skype, search the e-mail above and send add contact request with a note that it's about the guitar and we can do a full viewing on a Skype call in full HD so you'll be able to see and hear the guitar in full before buying it.

I thought it's important to mention that I can ship it worldwide. Prospective buyers please email me your full address for a quote on shipping. All shipping costs and whatever import duty depending on the country and any insurance for the shipping will be added and payed by the buyer on top of the agreed selling price. 
Same for any returns which there should be no reason for. It is a very rare collectible instrument and of sentimental value so only serious buyers please. All questions should be asked before buying and in principle returns are not accepted because I will answer all in 100% honesty and document it with photos. The guitar has no faults and all works perfectly. The significant imperfections are highlighted with photos so everything has to be discussed and agreed prior to the final price is agreed to avoid any disappointment when you receive this wonderful guitar. I have had it for many years and the person I bought from had it from new, bought in New York in 1974 I believe. I want it to go to a good home and am only selling due to financial personal reasons.
Thank you!

Phill Marshall :)
