Gibson SG guitar is a flashy in yet a great rock tone. The unique look takes a page from the Gibson Les Paul vision statement yet has its own personality and tone. It has a to cut away notches in the body which almost look like horns. It's a better body style as well which gives a more focused home and not is thick and grind he is a Gibson Les Paul tone. It still get the mahogany body and neck woods in the finger finger fretboard rosewood.


What I really like about the tone of this guitar is a team makes of sort of a fender style tone with a Gibson Les Paul tell it debt. It definitely leans towards a Gibson Les Paul tone because of the mahogany wood inch thick robust warm tone. The SG body is a little thinner and note the neck is longer you get a completely separate voicing and you what you would find on that Les Paul guitar. It's still warm and the mahogany woods still thickens the voicing up quite a bit but the overall tone is more focused and shredded. If you've ever heard any AC/DC album and you exactly what I'm talking about


Is guitar sound amazing and a high gain amplifier setting. They really excel when you're able to get a lot of distortion from the preamp section of your amplifier as well as your power amp section of your amplifier. When you get a good tube amplifier firing a burning those tubes really hot this guitar just absolutely comes to life. As a soulful use but a classic rock old guy tone all day long.

This guitar absolutely rocks out with a high gain amplifier such as the Marshall amplifier or a Mesa boogie amplifier. This is a hot Rod version of Gibson Les Paul guitar and so the tone is good to be very aggressive and in your face. As a distinct driven and amazing tone. It is more of a focused tone rather than an opened tone where you would from a Gibson Les Paul. Either way is a personal preference of the voice in between this guitar an the LP guitar.


I highly recommend these guitars to anyone he's wanting a good rock 'n roll guitar machine. They sound amazing and pretty much any musical application you can find yourself in. This is a absolute players guitar and not necessarily a showroom piece. This is a guitar that is made to rock and be played hard and really excels in a recording studio as well.
