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.

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.


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.
