Donated by Pete Townshend / Simon Law
Pete Townshend has stated often that the Gibson SG was his guitar of preference. It was the model he used exclusively on stage while touring with The Who from the late 1960's until the early 1970's. The model became synonmous with Pete for his signature guitar smashing during the infamous performances.

Gibson released this model to celebrate the 50th Anniversary of the Live at Leeds-era Who performances and recordings. It features all of the period-correct details of an early '60s SG Special, with Townshend's preferred hardware complement.
