The SG II was a double cutaway SG shaped mahogany solid body electric guitar made from 1972 through to 1976. It had a black pickguard, mahogany neck and 22-fret rosewood fingerboard with dot inlays. The nickel hardware includes an adjustable wrap-around bridge and 3-a-side Kluson machineheads. The Gibson SG II was very similar to the SG I except it had 2 Gibson mini-humbucker pickups with sliding selector switches. Controls were sinlge volume and tone knobs mounted on a black plastic plate. It was available in cherry or walnut finishes. This guitar was also available in sunburst finish as the SG III. The 1973 Gibson solid body flyer described the SG-II as follows:
"Two new Humbucking pickups give the SG II an extra powerful performance. This new guitar model has all the fast action features that give you extra playing power too. The tone control and pickup selector switches give you a wide variety of sounds to choose from. Gibson's SG II is a lot of guitar for a little price.
