Mary Ford's Gibson SG for sale
Mary Ford's Gibson SG is currently up for sale on eBay, and what a sight it is! It's not a guitar I'd really spent much time thinking about but it was quite an important guitar in its own way. Mary Ford would regularly appear on TV alongside Les Paul, and quite a lot of the time she used this (incredibly awesome) Gibson SG, complete with three pickups, a tremolo bar and gold hardware. Funny to think this was the SG's life before the likes of Cream, Led Zeppelin and AC/DC came along!
This guitar is so old in fact it's from when it was still branded as a Les Paul rather than an SG. The asking price on eBay is $125,000 and it could well sell for that much to the right collector. The guitar's most recent TV appearance was in an episode of The History Channel's programme Pawn Stars and it's also featured as a cover story in Vintage Guitar Magazine.
Another nice touch is that there are still remnants of a setlist taped to the back of the guitar. Neato!
