NBD - TV yellow Gibson SG bass, very rare

Recommended Posts

Back in ~2006, Gibson made a limited run of SG basses in non-standard colours including pastel pink and TV yellow. I have long been a fan of TV yellow (Johnny Thunders,  Buzzcocks etc) and so have been on the lookout for one for absolutely ages. This popped up a month or two back on Reverb and, after a decent price cut, I snaffled it. Its in superb 9.9/10 condition, weighs a shoulder-friendly 8.1 pounds, typical SG short scale ... and its minion coloured according to Mrs C 🙄. Great alternative to my 1971 Mustang. One happy bunny!

What a beauty! Must admit, despite normally being a Cherry Red purist when it comes to SGs, that shade of yellow does suit it very nicely.

Tell me, Clarky, if you were to buy a Ferrari, would you be one of those people who insists on buying a banana-yellow one?

I ask in a spirit of pure enquiry ...

I have a yellow Melody Maker (not glossy). Your bass looks great ! What about a Thunderbird pickup right in the middle ? 

Thanks. These are uber hard to find (I have seen one on sale in US and one in Australia in past several years) so I am not going to customise it

I always considered transparent red to be the best colour for SG shaped Gibson basses, but having seen this, I've changed my mind.

Yup, the best colour I've seen so far on this style basses. Congrats, it looks great. 

O and don't forget to pm me if you fall out of love with the mustang ;)
