Gibson SG Special 3 Knobs
gibson SG made in USA 1989. micro Les Paul 59 reissue, ebony keys.


the handle is very comfortable to play, we are at gibson so no surprise. by against the key is really a plus in sound reproduction (ebony).
the tone knobs are very responsive.
the only problem is the switch positions of the microphones is misplaced I think.


great handle, great touches, great sustain, its sick (PAF Lp 59 reissue).
This is a guitar made for the brown sound. typical of the 60s, 70s. acute micro sends heavy for the lead and the neck pickup is very serious for stoner riffs is a killer.
the humbuckers that fit this guitar are very good, they have a relatively low level of output relative to the current micro gibson, in the spirit of P90.


used for 5 years, a lot of concert .... nothing to do with the SG equipped 490T or other SG late 90s to today.
For all those who want to have a good way of his dirty drooling as he takes on all the 100w lamp old.
value for money is impressive. vintage is fashionable! the price of a new current sg rotten! you have touce ebony, with pickups found today .... there should be 1500 euros in mini gibson for that! great choice!! plus it is quite rare!

Gibson SG Special 3 Knobs
Mine comes from Kalamazoo, made in 1991
2 pickups gibson 490
and only 3 buttons instead of 4 knob
neck and mahogany body


The handle is very comfortable, although large.
access to acute is excellent with the indentation pronounced.
this guitar is rather light.
its sound is more distinctive than the 70's paul (less round). acdc lovers, look no further. sg and marshall the old model (not the serial mg) grown well, it does.


The pickups are not too suitable for clean sounds, but otherwise, it drains off.
I use it with a head Hughes & Kettner Matrix 100 and a behringer 4x12 cabinet, and it responds great.
sounds are those between a stratum and a les paul. This feels especially clear.


I bought this guitar in 1991. She has not left me since.
it caused me very little free: the bridges, which were worn and were breaking the strings, I changed the mechanics for oil bath with a excellent performance agreement, and buttons knobs, buttons because the plastic gibson, I found them cheap and too slippery for violoning.
for my 5000 francs from Epoq is a very good deal.
I will also buy him a sister to make her feel less alone (and also to be able to change in concert when scratching the strings break).

Gibson SG Special 3 Knobs
everything is:


The neck is very pleasing, and the CASC is no acute problem me.
Guitar and balance pluttlgre. I had some problem keeping agreement, and accuracy, but everything is back to normal APRS guys went to the luthier.
The absence of a pickguard does not hinder me, it gives a bit of originality has the beast.
One of the cot BMOL however varnish, which has not aged well, so that the guitar was originally white, has faded somewhat, but nothing mchant.


This guitar is clearly in his register when playing blues and rock with this one. I also used to play sounds a bit more modern, provided to a lot of distortion, and use the bridge pickup.

the neck pickup allows him to have a clear warm and saturated with serious property presents.

By combining the two microphones, one arrives at something Plutt versatile, provided the play ac knobs volume and tonality of this guitar n'tant obviously not made for metal.

For my part I use a dual amp orange terror, and a baffle 212 ppc ob, and that is happiness!


I use this guitar for over a year, and having bought used for 550 euro, I do not know what I can complain.

Having tried a lot of Sg rcentes my humble opinion, this guitar has much more personality than sg spcial currently produced.

Still the small problem of the aged varnish that does not specially good, but good guitar adj 20 years, and my luthier APRS n'altre not it sound.

In conclusion therefore, I think I made a good choice in buying this guitar:)
