The Gibson Kirk Douglas Roots SG is announced as a versatile guitar. It is equipped with three '57 Classic humbucker pickups that can be split via the push/pull tone pots for single-coil sound. Other new feature on this guitar is a ring located around the TogPot switch, that allows for controlling the middle pickup volume.
