Lightly Aged SG Special with Traditional Lighting Bar Tailpiece

Picking up a Gibson Custom 1963 SG Special Reissue is the next closest thing to getting your hands on a genuine original. The first thing you’ll notice is the thin, lightweight body with a double cutaway for easy access to the highest frets. It’s also undergone a very light aging process by the Murphy Lab team for added vintage appeal. A pair of Soapbar P90 pickups bring vintage tone right into your living room or studio and the old-school wraparound Lighting Bar tailpiece adds the perfect touch for vintage traditionalists. Now available at Guitar Center, this Murphy Lab SG Special 1963 Reissue is sure to become your go-to electric guitar.

Lightweight, Comfortable Body

Don’t let those sharp cutaways scare you. Beveled edges around the solid mahogany body ensure you’ll have a comfortable playing experience with this Gibson Custom SG Special. And as if it wasn’t hard enough to put down already, you’ll love the enhanced sustain too.

Period-Accurate Neck

This Custom Shop SG Special is all about the details, including a meticulously laser-scanned and recrafted 1963 Medium C-Shape neck. The Indian rosewood fretboard is adorned with white dot inlays and vintage-style Kluson Single Line tuners.

Sweet Soapbar Single Coils

If you’re looking for the legendary Gibson tone, the P90 pickups deliver the raw powerful sound you love from the early days of rock. You won’t have to worry about microphonic feedback either with the fully wax potted single coils on this Gibson Custom SG Special.

Ultra Light Aged Finish

The Murphy Lab puts this guitar through its Ultra Light aging process, showing slight lacquer checking, but very little playing wear. It looks like it has spent the last five decades sitting in a case under the bed and you’re finally letting it out to breathe.

The Gibson Custom Murphy Lab 1963 SG Special Reissue comes with a certificate of authenticity and a brown and pink reissue 5-latch hardshell case.
