The Gibson SG is one of the greatest rock 'n roll guitars that has come out in the last 40 years. You can easily recognize this guitar if you have listened to any of AC/DC's albums or Pete Townshend from the Hill. This guitar was a primary guitar for Pete Townsend back in the 70s and is still the feature guitar for Angus Young of AC/DC. This guitar has a interpretation from a Les Paul but takes his own route into creation. It has two cutaways on top and bottom where the Gibson Les Paul only has a cut away on the bottom. It features if the cheap features a thinner body compared to a Gibson Les Paul but it keeps most of the Les Paul shape intact. There is two cutaways on top and bottom and the net access is a lot easier because of the cutaway on this guitar. So essentially you can reach the upper frets a lot better and easier compared to a Gibson Les Paul. Like I said body is thinner it is still mahogany on the body and it is mahogany in the neck a rosewood fretboard.

You also have to humbuckers the volume controls and the tone controls as well as the pickup selector. This guitar also features 490 our humbuckers in the neck and bridge position. The scale is a 24" 3/4 inch scale which allows a lot better net positioning in the Gibson Les Paul . You also have chrome hardware that really sets off the black paint job throughout the body and the neck.


This guitar has a great sound it's a very Gibson ask sound but it has its own thing going on compared to Gibson Les Paul. It has a more driving and focused tone then the Gibson Les Paul but doesn't carry the weight in tone as far thickness as a Gibson Les Paul. This is a tone nice to be a little bit thinner but it's still going to have that warm feeling because the mahogany wood throughout the guitars body and neck. Match this guitar up with a martial plaque seeing you have AC/DC tones all day long. This guitar also sounds great in any high gain amp application.


The neck is a little bit different feeling then the Gibson Les Paul. If it feels like the neck circumference is a little bit or the fretboard is a little bit wider so it gives it a little bit different feel and of course the balance is a little bit different because of the weight of the body and the longer neck compared to the Gibson Les Paul. It's still in easy guitar playing like the Gibson Les Paul that it will take a little bit of adjustment on the guitarist part if he or she is used to playing a Gibson Les Paul. I know that was the case for me because I've been playing the Gibson Les Paul for some time and then picking this guitar up was a bit strange initially for me.


These guitars are fairly expensive compared to a lot of guitars out there. At new they come in right around $2200 which is a great price for Gibson SG guitar. They sound great. They're perfect for digging and they're perfect for any type of recording session that you might be in. I have used to Gibson SG in mini recording sessions as it has a great tone for the recording application. I recommend a Gibson SG to anyone who wants a alternative version of the Gibson Les Paul or maybe a slightly different tone and probably a little bit more versatility than the Gibson Les Paul.
