Gibson SG Zoot Suit
Big news, earthquake at Gibson! It's so original that one can not ignore, test store half an hour here:

The body is laminated birch, each stratum being dyed and then everything is pressed and pasted-machined.
The handle is the same but in the other direction (vertical), with a thick ebony over (24 boxes, we exploit the hole between the end of last key and neck pickup!).
It's been chatter, purists shudder!

The pickups are the usual standard side handle (not to get excited about then) and acute side the fabulous and delicious T500 Flying Explorer wow!

Commands clear and accessible over the salad buttons. Jack unfortunately still on the table, it is very risky in concert if you forgot your cable bent ...

In short it is NOT sg Grandpa!

UTILIZATION

The body is super nice, carved, rough and finish do not mind. Because it's heavier than boss' ben she finally does not sting the nose, cool.
The handle on the other hand, to love. It is quite large, but extremely thick, it fits me very well (less fatigue in the long run) but the rough finish is very unpleasant to nine. No doubt with a little patina that is very correct.

This construction has many advantages, rock-solid stability, good weight, and sustain hell. The higher the absolute look!

24 cases without changing the ergonomics is great, very useful for solos ... phew

SOUNDS

By clean is not bad at all, no specific clinical, amid it is funky, nothing wrong.
In the middle is a delicious crunch, it's pretty dirty in round draft very useful in bluesy.
As lead is madness in acute need to try to realize as it is precise and incisive bad class but not sterile at times. In short the craquerie!

I tend to think that the neck pickup could do better, but the change means disaster aesthetic view custom color. Then we did with ...
I do not know if they are split-always a plus in practice.

OVERALL OPINION

Snobs may grumble that's their job, but nothing since the standard is still in the catalog, unchanged.
For those who see nothing wrong with that ale Bleriot crossed the English Channel, Zootsuit this might be the best SG after all.
About accounts, 1000 roros is not cheap, but still having the correct gear. On second thought the work necessary to achieve this SG should listen more than usual, and the birch is not free either.

The black-white model I like best, is no carnival like other colors available but hey it's personal.

Do not buy without trying this SG model, you never know!

I salute the efforts of the manufacturer, very brave, especially in times of crisis.
