    Pete Townshend Signature Gibson SG, Exact Replica Of "Live At Leeds" Guitar. On February 14, 1970, the Who made Rock and Roll history at Leeds University. Thirty years later, in the early 2000s, Gibson Guitars produced a limited number (250) of replicas of Pete Townshend's famous "Live at Leeds" stage-used SG. To recreate the the famous guitar accurately, it was factory-issued by Gibson in "aged condition", with slight oxidation on the hardware and a "tour worn" faded cherry finish. The setup precisely matches Townshend's original "Leeds" rig, and he commented in the original press release that "This guitar is amazing. It looks, sounds, and feels exactly like the SG I used during 'Live At Leeds.' " This guitar, numbered 36 of 250, features 1970 specifications, p-90 Soapbar pickups, and a COA signed by Townshend. Two cases are included, one form-fitting SG custom case, and one Anvil flight case with "Pete Townshend" stenciled on the side. Never before has a Who relic been recreated with such attention to detail. Condition is lightly worn, as produced by the factory.
