1965 GibsonSG Junior – Cardinal Red

We love a custom color SG Junior, and this one from 1965 in its original Cardinal Red finish is no exception! The contrast of these black appointments with nickel and chrome hardware makes the Cardinal Red really pop, and the wear throughout really shows how much of a rockin’ guitar this truly is! Throughout 1965, Gibson was using up its stock of remaining nickel-plated parts before moving over to chrome, with some instruments like this one receiving both hardware finishes!
