  • Great guitar!

    Gibson SG Special '60s TributePublished on 06/24/14 at 08:43
    (This content has been automatically translated from French)
    Gibson bought my first in 2013, made in the USA in 2011.
    It has 2 P-90 pickups (single coil). : Great pickups!
    It has a set neck Mahogany, 4 knobs (volume + tones), and also a 3-position selector.
    Finally, it is composed of 22 frets, mechanical and Nickel.

    UTILIZATION

    I can tell you that this guitar is very practical. In addition, it is extremely lightweight (3.8 kg), which gives a certain ease when he was around his neck for a few hours.
    The handle is very nice because it is very thin and provides no braking when moving on it.
    In addition, the shape is typical of the 1960s, which reinforces the side "Rock'n Roll" of this guitar-shaped horns.

    The handle is very nice because it is very thin and provides no braking when moving on it.
    In addition, the shape is typical of the 1960s, which reinforces the side "Rock'n Roll" of this guitar-shaped horns.
    The last frets are very fun to play, and access to higher notes is very easy, especially in the hollow between the horn and the handle.
    Finally, it quickly gained a good sound with this guitar (P-90), even on an amp for beginners!

    SOUNDS

    When I plugged this guitar on my amp Roland 40W and I played a big E chord, the sound of P-90 hallucinated me ... There there in the belly of this guitar tremendous power !
    I bought this guitar for her, both powerful and rock (like Louis Bertignac), but also for hard rock (like AC / DC or Led Zeppelin).
    When I place the 3-position selector on "Treble", the sound is pure rock and greasy; and when placed on "Rhythm", the sound is still fat but with a bluesy touch, like the sound of Warren Haynes plays the blues when: it is his own. Can be adjusted with the buttons "Tone", and I get by putting 0, sound more Santana.
    Wah-Wah pedal between the guitar and the amp is great, no need other effects that would disrupt its wonderful P-90 located on the guitar!
    I prefer this small wonder, the raw sound of the bridge pickup for a pure rock sound that sounds very good!

    OVERALL OPINION

    I use this guitar for about 9 months, and my expectations were met!
    I have not tried other models before I buy this guitar, but this one that best suited me, and that's what I wanted her absolutely.
    The feature I prefer this guitar is its lightness, its rock and pleasant hyper handle.
    In addition, the price / quality ratio is monstrous, since this guitar is an "affordable" price (in EUR 650) compared to other Gibson classified in the range above.
    Finally, I think keeping this guitar very long, very very long time ..!

    made in usa
    impressive micro p-90
    it has everything except a large varnished so she will wear faster .. it gives him a quick little vintage look very nice in my opinion.

    UTILIZATION

    Properly adjusted the handle is a highway! It is very precise and access to treble is super easy, I love it.
    The lack of patent fact that the hand slides over the handle without gliomas so dificult and it makes the guitar more lightweight.

    SOUNDS

    Plugged into my Vox AC-15 as in my Twin reverb it sounds god of fire! micro are vintage and very versatile for the price it's amazing.

    OVERALL OPINION

    I use it for over a year and it always surprises me. I have many guitars and I used to play with high-end guitars (Gibson, Fender, Gretsch). I bought this SG for p-90, for its looks and its attractive price. Since I do not move the settings, such as my Gibson 335 went three times to the maker ..
    the price / quality ratio is unbeatable. For me its only flaw is the lack of varnished as it is more exposed to shocks but it makes the guitar lighter and faster.
    I try SG Faded and is well above really nothing to do finish level, sound and playing comfort
    Anyway, I really recommend this guitar

    Maybe it was a bad series but be careful with this model try before you buy.
    Personally I recommend the Classic P90 or P90 standard, the finish is much better bill.

    In summary: Mahogany, P-90, fast neck and made in USA

    UTILIZATION

    Ahhhh .... the handle I bought this guitar for two things: the stick and microphones. This model has the handle 60 slim type, with ease. If we add the fineness of the handle to its reduced length (compared to a Fender), we can more easily pick up the frets far with the little finger. The 22 frets are accessible without twisting the hand, the guitar is light, in short, is happiness.

    And the second strong point is the P90 pickups. In rock, there are guitars that recognizes 100 meters, and are distinguished from others. Those with P90 are those here. Black Sabbath is the P90. The Who (music expert) is the P90. Phone also. Ben GIBSON this will sound like that.

    OVERALL OPINION

    This guitar at this price, it's really amazing. Obviously, the finish is silent on certain things: it seems that it was painted latex with a roller. But if you for a guitar that's just something that should sound, it is for you. If you like beautiful coats of varnish and the wood grain inlay, you'll be disappointed. Against by the stuff is good. Micro have character, the knobs work well (this is not the on / off), the hardware is quality.
    I have not put any rating, because it makes no sense, I am not impartial, this guitar is the one I prefer the ones I've had. It is far from being the smartest I've owned, but it's most endearing and the only one on which I still play :-)

  • SG with P90 goodness

    Gibson SG Special '60s TributePublished on 01/28/12 at 00:52
    The 60s were a pretty awesome era for music gear, and it was also an interesting point in time for Gibson as a company. The 60s and 70s are actually the guitars you mainly hear in recordings, but since everyone gets all bent up over the whole Norlin thing, Gibson decided to do a 60s reissue instead of the 70s, I guess. The guitar features a mahogany body, a mahogany neck with a rosewood fretboard, 22 medium frets, dot inlays, a hard tail bridge, two P90s, two volumes, two tones and a three way switch.

    UTILIZATION

    UTILIZATION

    The frets on this were actually pretty good. Gibson isn't exactly the best company when it comes to fretjobs, but these were very solid. I was able to get some nice action without any fretting out. Granted, I had to tweak the guitar a bit to make it play the way I wanted, but it came out pretty good. The nut could have been cut better as it was kinda binding on the G string, but I was able to temporarily fix that with some nut sauce. The guitar had the standard neck dive issue that SGs normally have. It's almost as if every single SG has this issue. In fact, I dont' think I've personally come across one that played normally.

    SOUNDS

    The P90s in this were very good sounding. The bridge was aggressive, but it wasn't over the top. If you've never played a P90 before, it's like a thicker single coil sound. You can get a really cool blues tone with this, especially once you start adding some gain. I plugged this thing in a JCM800 2203, threw a tubescreamer in front, and it was tonal heaven. I was able to get everything from BB King stuff to Zakk Wylde. The P90s actually did a pretty good job when it came to getting hard rock/metal tones, but they can't really get much past the old school 80s metal. Don't expect these to do death metal, although some guys out there are actually making them work.

    OVERALL OPINION

    The guitar is a very cool guitar, and it happens to be one of my personal favorites when it comes to SGs. The P90s are great, but I know they'll turn off a lot of people from this guitar. If you're unsure about P90s, I would urge you to at least try them to see what they're like. You may be pleasantly surprised. I know I was when I first picked up a P90 guitar way back when.

    I should say up front that this was on sale and that's why I bought it. I'm not normally a fan of the SG body style. It kind of seems neck heavy most of the time and my body doesn't shape to it very well. For some reason I feel like I have to play rhythm on one, which is bad for my style. But hey old habits die hard. I really like the neck shape on this one and it definitely has the 60's vibe down. Actually my had had one of the original 60's SG guitars with the same finish and I can say this one feels very similar. The playability is there. It's very much a fully featured guitar and not budget by any means despite what the price might tell you.

    SOUNDS

    I'm not sure what specific model P-90's are on here but they sound very good. Really dirty and raunch. I believe they are the same ones that were on the limited run of les paul specials that came out last year. In my opinion these sound way better with p90's than humbuckers...it's just something about the guitar. I really feel like I can jam out when I play this through a cranked amp. I think a lot of P90 guitars give that feeling. This is a true plug and play kinda guitar. No bells and whistles.

    OVERALL OPINION

    Yeah you don't get any of the fancy detailing on the higher priced models but this is every bit the SG that you could want. Plus you don't really have to worry about messing up the beautiful finish or hardware. This is a real beater axe as far as I'm concerned. And I have no problem taking it on tour. The tuners are solid and everything seems fine. I really recommend you pick this up if you want a no frills SG on the cheap.

    Gibson SG Special '60s TributePublished on 08/13/11 at 20:54
    The Gibson '60s SG Tribute was made after the launch and subsequent super-fast sell out of the Les Pauls of similar nature. It combines some great features into a well priced and great feeling/sounding guitar. This particular model boasts a really classic natural finish that harkens back to the days of when things were still called "groovy" and when Hendrix was still playing the music, man.

    It's made in the USA and features a mahogany body and neck, a rosewood fretboard with 22 frets, Kluson tuners, a tune-o-matic bridge and stopbar tailpiece and two really awesome Gibson P90 pickups wired as a typical SG would be with two volumes, two tones and a 3 way toggle switch to select the pickups. Definitely a guitar that would be right at home in 1971 as it is right here in 2011.

    UTILIZATION

    The SG is a pretty ergonomic ax for sure. It's light, sits well on the body and really allows you to fly around when you're playing. They're not quite featherweight, which is probably a plus. I know that when I'm playing a Gibson I like it to feel solid and secure, which this one does without completely killing the ol' shoulders and back. The upper fret access is good on these guitars... superior to something like a Les Paul due to the double cutaway and smaller neck joint.

    Getting a good sound out of this guitar is pretty simple. The thin finish combined with the raunchy P90 pickups really is a recipe for good tone and Gibson makes it with just the right extra bit of mojo... groovy man!

    SOUNDS

    I've tried this guitar through a myriad of different rigs. It definitely sounds most at home on a British voiced amp such as a Marshall or Orange, or even an American imitation like the Mesa Royal Atlantic. The clean tones are really cool... they're a bit raunchier than a typical humbucker, but they also have that brightness that one might associate with a Strat or Tele... pretty cool! The neck pickup works very well for blues or R&B stuff, and the bridge pickup is a funk machine. Putting both pickups on together is like hearing the love child of a Tele and Les Paul.. country twang with mahogany midrange tones.

    Kicking in some drive is where the fun starts to begin. I've always dug P90s for their awesome sustain and tone and I love how these pickups react in this guitar. They take on a really thick and monster vibe that is like a perfect blend of a Tele and a Les Paul Junior or Special... excellent for punk rock or proto metal. Using the neck pickup yields in some Sabbath-y textures that would make any doom metal fan fall to their knees, Wayne's World style.



    OVERALL OPINION

    All in all I think the Gibson SG '60s Tribute is a really cool and classy guitar. It sells for about $850 new which is a killer deal considering the quality and tone that you get for your cash. It's a limited run, so I'm not sure how many will be floating around for sale in 10 years. It seems like the type of guitar people will buy and play as it just keeps sounding better and better each time I play one. Definitely worth checking out if you're a fan of SGs, P90s, or a good ol' fashioned raunchy guitar sound.

    Gibson SG Special '60s TributePublished on 08/11/11 at 10:26
    The Gibson SG '60s Tribute is a branch off of the infamous Les Paul '50s and '60s Tribute Studios, which were loaded with killer features at a great price. The SG '60s Tribute is for those players who are just more a fan of that devilish delight. It is part of their faded series and features their famous thin finish that consists of pore filler and a few light coats of lacquer over top. It features all mahogany construction (body and neck), a rosewood fretboard with 22 frets and dot inlays, and a pair of firebreather Gibson P90s loaded under the hood. Here's the full list of specs:

    # Tune-O-Matic bridge
    # Stopbar tailpiece
    # Black '67-style pickguard

    UTILIZATION

    The SG has always seemed to be a very light and ergonomic instrument to me. It sits on the body well and they are usually light in weight. This guitar is no exception, and because it has the '60s neck profile, I feel that the body and neck match together better size-wize than it would if if had a '50s neck profile. The upper fret access is golden on these guitars... much like the PRS' I've tried.

    Getting a good sound out of this guitar is really simple. It has P90s in it, which I'm a huge fan of and would argue that if you can't get a good sound out of a P90 loaded guitar then I'm not sure what to say! They're like the perfect step between the bright and jangly single coil, and the dark and complex sounding humbucker. Overtones just leap from the pickups, and combined with the all mahogany construction of this guitar, it just makes for a very thick and juicy sounding instrument that works well for many different styles.

    SOUNDS

    I've tried this guitar through various Fender and Mesa Boogie amps and can safely say that it's more than a one trick pony. The clean tones are an excellent blend of the bright and jangly mixed with some darker and thicker sounds to create a wonderful tone that's unique and all its own. It works well for jazzier/bebop lines as well as comping chords quite well, especially though a good Fender amp. The combination of both pickups is prime time for country pickin' and the bridge pickup has that perfect amount of bite for styles like rockabilly and surf guitar.

    The drive tones are thick and viscous all around. It sounds like a Gibson that is trying to respond like a Strat and that marriage brings to the fore a really thick and chewy, yet still bright and distinct drive tone that is PERFECT for 70s and 80s hard rock flavours as well as some doom metal and even some modern rock. The guitar has a great underlying smooth quality to it as well, so lead lines just sing for days... add some echo and reverb and it's perfection.

    OVERALL OPINION

    All in all I feel that the Gibson SG '60s Tribute is a great axe. It doesn't look like too much from a distance, but in my experience some of the greatest sounding guitars ever were the plainest of them all. It combines that understated yet subtly classic look with a monster set of tones and excellent playability. For the $800 or so these sell for new, you cannot go wrong. If you want a killer P90 guitar but missed the boat on the limited edition LPs, you might want to take a look at these before they're gone gone gone!

    This guitar is a limited run by Gibson and features P90 pick ups in both the bridge and a deposition. This is a tribute to the 60s classic SG guitars from the days where Pete Townsend would use it through his hundred watt Marshall stacks. This is an all natural body wood with a light gloss finish black tuners and a pick up selection. The fretboard is a Rosewood fretboard and it balances out the nice mahogany body and neck wood.

    SOUNDS

    I really like the tone of the SG guitar primarily because of its warm smooth time and driving percussive attack. The P90's really had a good element to this guitar as well as a bright but still warm tone. The finish on this guitar is a nitro lacquer finish this balances out allows more resonance of the guitar. This is a better lacquer that a poly finish wood.

    You have 22 frets and all 22 of those frets are easily reachable due to the carved out cut out of the SG body sheet. The neck is a 12 inch radius which is very comfortable but yet sit very similar to the Gibson Les Paul neck. It has its own tone but still takes a good chunk of its interpretation from the Les Paul.

    OVERALL OPINION

    I highly recommend this guitar if you're looking for a good inexpensive guitar for under $1000 I can get you a solid town for digging and for recording. I knew you can find this guitar online or at some guitar retailers for about $799. This is an excellent price for a very usable guitar and extremely versatile tone to boot. Much like the Les Paul Studio guitars these are much better priced at the budgeted consumer.

    I have been a fan of Gibson guitars since I first learned how to play the guitar. They have continued to be one of the best sounding guitar builders in the world. I am particular to the Les Paul guitar but even the SG finds a special place in my heart. The tone of SG so takes a lot from the gives Les Paul it's still has its own thing going on. It is a classic reach warm tone that sits very well in the music. If you've ever listen any AC/DC album and you've heard this guitar. The P90 pickups are one of my favorite pick ups in a mahogany guitar. They elaborate the natural integrity of a wood and it gives a good blend of clean and sharp distinct warm tones.

I am particular to the Les Paul guitar but even the SG finds a special place in my heart. The tone of SG so takes a lot from the gives Les Paul it's still has its own thing going on. It is a classic reach warm tone that sits very well in the music. If you've ever listen any AC/DC album and you've heard this guitar. The P90 pickups are one of my favorite pick ups in a mahogany guitar. They elaborate the natural integrity of a wood and it gives a good blend of clean and sharp distinct warm tones.

    SOUNDS

    This is an easy guitar to get the good to feel from. It doesn't take a long time for someone to really connect with the feeling and sound of this guitar. One of the best things that I like about this particular guitar is the white paint coat on the body. It really looks like you vintage guitar from the 60s. Since this is a 60s tribute guitar from Gibson. I would like that vintage white look. It really blends well with the nature and character of this guitar. If I had to pick one color to match the 60 sound of the Gibson SG it wouldn't be red but rather can vintage white. I love sound of this guitar was a high gain very loud Marshall style amplifier. The mix with this amplifier in this guitar is exactly what Pete Townsend was looking for when he first grabbed the Gibson SG. Put an Ibanez tube screamer in front of this amp this guitar and you will get a great classic rock sound.

    OVERALL OPINION

    You can find these guitars for right around $799. This is a steal of the price for what you get out of this guitar. I highly recommend this guitar to anyone is looking for the 60 sound and the vintage five of course with the vintage look with white vintage paint job. I have all of the guitar is the Gibson has put out an recent years this is one of the best looking and best sounding guitars I have come across.
