Product Description

1987 Gibson SG Elite Production Error Guitar

Rare factory mistake guitar

This item was featured on the Season 18 Episode 11 of “Pawn Stars” titled Rick's Big Shot

Here is your chance to own an iconic piece of music history with a 1987 Gibson SG Elite guitar in Metallic Sunset color. This unique guitar was produced in February 1987, when Gibson mistakenly routed 32 models of their SG Elite to have three pickup custom guitars instead of the required two. Those instruments were then modified to be fitted with SG Custom hardware and sold as SG Customs.

Out of the 32 guitars that contained the factory error only 24 were painted in the Metallic Sunset variety and all were stamped as factory seconds.  These collectibles are easily identifiable by the distinct crown inlay found exclusively on the factory error pieces while traditional SG Customs bear the recognizable spear point design.

We have included a letter from Gibson discussing the background and rarity of this one-of-a-kind musical instrument.

Makes a great addition to any music, guitar, or an avid collector of rare items!
