Gibson 1969 SG Standard
This guitar is the most well known "Buck Dharma" guitar — a 1969 Gibson SG Standard. It was played onstage at almost every show until the early '80s, and was played on every album up through "Spectres."

The guitar originally had a cherry finish and a Gibson tremolo, but Buck replaced the Gibson tremolo with a Bigsby, and about a year after that removed the tremolo all together, substituting a stop tailpiece instead. At this time, Buck also had it refinished white.

The guitar had two humbucking pickups and a rosewood fingerboard. Its thin mahogany body gives the SG a biting, high-end tone.

The guitar was stolen in 1990.
