Gibson 50th Anniversary SG Standard 24 - Antique Ebony
The Gibson SG like it's big brother to Gibson Les Paul is a rock 'n roll tone machine this is such a great guitar when trying to dial in some good heavy rock 'n roll guitar tones. It has a unique tone that is similar to the Gibson Les Paul but its own driving force. It has a little bit thinner but focused tone that is very unique to this body shape.

It features to carved out heels for the body which almost look like devil horns. You have two volume control knobs and two-tone control knobs. You have to humbuckers and your normal six string tuners.

UTILIZATION


Gibson 50th Anniversary SG Standard 24 Features

Solid Mahogany body with Antique Ebony finish
Gold 50th Anniversary logo silkscreen on headstock
Comfortable SG rounded neck profile
24 fret rosewood fingerboard
Two Gibson '57 Classic pickups
Vintage-style tuners with pearloid tulip buttons and efficient 14:1 gear ratio


SOUNDS


The tone of this guitar is one absolute phenomenal tone. It is a tone that is a little bit thinner in robust then the Gibson Les Paul but still has a good warm sick mahogany tone. The body in the woods are mahogany woods with a Rosewood fretboard. It has a cool looking block pearl in late in the frets which set the beauty of this guitar off.

These guitars are absolute rock machines on the pair with a good high gain amplifier such as Marshall amplifier or Mesa boogie or something of that nature. They are able to get in real tight with a good distortion tone with these humbuckers and they feel invoicing and the guitar just matched hard rock 'n roll perfectly.

OVERALL OPINION

At new these guitars coming right around $1300 which is a great price for this good solid built rock 'n roll guitar. These guitars, you will spend hours playing and gigging night tonight and also in recording sessions. This is the go to guitar for me in recording sessions over the Gibson Les Paul's which are actually my favorite guitar. I highly recommend this guitar anyone who needs a good solid players guitar and nice showroom piece exotic looking guitar.

tjon901's review"Tony Iommi Signature without the pickups"

Gibson 50th Anniversary SG Standard 24 - Antique Ebony
The Gibson SG standard 24 is exactly what it sounds like. It is an SG standard with 24 frets. It isnt exactly an SG standard. It has the small pickguard like a 61 Reissue. To me this is a Tony Iommi Signature SG without the expensive inlays or pickups. Which isnt bad because those things made the Iommi Signature guitar very very expensive. This guitar is good if you need a 24 fret SG other than that there is nothing really special about it. This guitar has a 60s profile neck so it is nice and thin and fast. It has dual Gibson 57 classic pickups. Each pickup has its own volume and tone control and are switched with a 3 way switch. It has 22 frets on a rosewood fretboard with trapezoid inlays. The headstock has 6 Gibson Kluson tuners. I think this guitar only comes in black also. It also looks like they forgot the inlay on the 24th fret for some reason.

UTILIZATION

Because of the SG design it isnt hard to get up to the 24th fret. The guitar could have been 24 frets to begin with really but it wasnt. I think in the 60s making it 24 frets would have made an already weak neck joint weaker but now with the stronger joints on the modern SG's it is not something hard for them to pull off. With the slim 60s neck the guitar is easy to play and since high end Gibsons are now Plek'd the frets will be perfectly level. The plek machine uses lasers to grind the frets down with perfect accuracy. The SG design with the neck being placed so far out on the body is naturally neck heavy and SG's tend to neck dive. The Tony Iommi Signature fixed this by moving the strap peg to the upper horn but Gibson does not do this on any other SG so you will have to do it yourself.

SOUNDS

This guitar has all the natural SG tones. Because of the thinner body you get a sharper tone than that of a Les Paul. The Classic 57 pickups are good pickups and I dont really see any reason to change them unless you are playing the heaviest of heavy metal. Because of the 24 fret neck the neck pickup is pushed back a bit so it has a bit different tone than that of a normal SG. With the neck pickup farther back you have a slightly brighter tone with more high end since it is closer to the bridge. This change in tone can be easily compensated for with the tone knob. The bridge pickup has a good tone for blues or heavy classic to moderately heavy rock and roll. These pickups are what Gibson should put in all of their medium to high end guitars.I am not a fan of the 498s or Burstbucker series of pickups.

OVERALL OPINION

I dont know if this model is going to do to well. It is just a 61 reissue SG with 24 frets. The two extra frets do not make this guitar very special. The Iommi Signature had special Inlays and a set of super rare Iommi pickups. This is just a 24 fret SG. Gibson players have gotten by with 22 frets for 60 years if they were clammoring for 24 frets they would have said so by now. If this guitar was more metal oriented I would understand putting 24 frets on it but again this is just a standard SG. If for some reason you are looking for an SG but absolutely need 24 frets I believe this is the only SG model currently being made with 24 frets now that the Supreme and Iommi Signature models are gone.

Gibson 50th Anniversary SG Standard 24 - Antique Ebony
Here is a summary of the site's music star


The Gibson SG Standard 24 50th Anniversary celebrates the 50th anniversary of a guitar with a timeless design.
Its strength lies in a body of Mahogany as the SG Custom Shop, providing conductivity factor, scale and dynamic optimal acoustics.
Its handle is as it should be glued, consisting of Mahogany Quarter-Sawn (special procedure cutting boards in a specific direction of the shaft, promoting strength and stability) and Rosewood. SG Rounded profile is no problem apprehension.
With the choice of 24 frets instead of the usual 22 that this guitar stands out; This broadens the field of play, and will not leave indifferent the lead guitarists. This design also has the effect of repositioning the neck pickup which will thus a substantially more precise sound.

SG Standard 24 50th is equipped with popular PAF-style 57 Classic humbuckers, classical pair Nashville Tune-o-matic Bridge & Tailpiece Stopbar (bridge and tailpiece), and a set of vintage-style lifts.
Proposed in Antique Ebony color (glossy nitrocellulose varnish-type) and adorned with an emblem "50 Years" on the front of the head, Standard 24 50th Anniversary SG is a quality and intermediate rate between the current productions Nashville USA and elitist Custom Shop.

UTILIZATION

everything is imppec on this guitar I scared myself by buying it because I already had a standard 2007 so 22 frets micro 498 and 490 etc etc ... which was rotten, but there RAS!!
Channel rounded profile, the grip is immediate between LP and Flying (in my opinion)
body that fits snugly in the stomach, it does not sting the nose, Access to acute is, SG requires surprisingly easy despite the 24 frets.
24 frets is a blessing, I practice a little lead in my group and this is what he had not crossed my LTD Viper 1000 that sounds too straight and metal for my taste and with less personality.
Sound and what is all the knobs are only usable without problems, they respond to all the expectations of musicians.

SOUNDS

I play a typed style heavy rock / stoner Burnu pulling a lot to with sound metal / rock with shades of blues finally open all knobs are on a two mics that I initially set higher on the bridge pickups to recover mid and lower hair on the sleeves to balance everything.
Bridge pickups, but powerful enough dry harmonious present in the medium treble and bass are very balanced (the knobs tones make it softness and roundness lowered)
Pickups sleeves, bold, full of low fluid can be any type of solo, gary moore kind and consort is magical.
It is not really sound level away from the les paul but with the mouth, the practicality of access to acute and weight that although she does not quite defend weighs 10 kg traditionnal way.
Guitar driven blues, rock, and more without reaching the metal (whatever), connected to an orange AD 30 and baffles Framus V30 more, overdrive boost phaser wah etc ... on my board it sounds wonderfully.
Do funk is feasible because I think clean and clear powerful leftovers slightly declining volumes but I will not spread because I do not practice clear.
Level distortion and other OD, everything goes wonderfully.

OVERALL OPINION

I for one week, but I try a lot of guitars in this price range and I must say that gibson made strong, yet it came set could not be better.
For a faith that the price is justified in this price range.
I regret nothing, I stood to give an opinion because there was not what I find weird btw, to talk about this exeptionnel scratch my taste after each was free not to be agreed with me, I'm not pro or virtuoso but it gives me satisfaction to all that I play with, and having tried many brands and models of all wholes price I can say that I am happy to have purchased.
This is what it will improve with time or vice versa we'll see.
It was only after a certain anyway that I can tell if I do it again this choice or not, a UP in two or three months for the info.
