Gibson Guitar and Steve Perry of the ska band Cherry Poppin' Daddies are making a "Zoot Suit music riot."

As one of the newest releases from Gibson USA, the SG Zoot Suit guitar has made quite a colorful statement to guitarists and music-fans alike with its unique and radical appearance, Gibson affirms.

Steve Perry plans to perform with his brand new guitar in front of skanking crowds everywhere while the band tours in support of their upcoming album release Skaboy JFK: the Skankin' hits of the Cherry Poppin' Daddies".

The word "zoot" is jazz slang meaning extravagant style to which this guitar encapsulates, according to Gibson.

At first glance, one might think that the unique coloration of the Zoot Suit guitar is simply a clever paint scheme. But there is no paint used on the guitar. Featuring a new body built with multiple birch wood laminate, each laminate piece is dyed with a different color then compressed and bonded together to form one solid block of wood, Gibson explains.

Two coats of satin lacquer are then applied to provide a smooth finish and also help protect the body from any damage. Other characteristics of the SG Zoot Suit guitar include the multicolored neck of the Zoot Suit that also constructed using multiple birch wood laminate pieces, and Gibson's 496R and 500T pickups, which feature clear coil forms to see the copper wire, ceramic magnets, and plenty of wire for the pickups.

Availability
The Gibson SG Zoot Suit comes in five extraordinary colorful combinations: Rainbow, Black and Red, Black and White, Black and Natural, and Red and Blue. This guitar is one of 2009's most standout and exciting guitars and produced in limited quantity.

Unfortunately, Gibson is not releasing the price yet.
