This Gibson SG Standard Electric Guitar in Heritage Cherry weighs in at 6 lbs 7 oz. This brand new SG from Gibson comes with its original gig bag and manufacturer's warranty.
The Gibson SG truly is a thing of beauty. Introduced in 1961 and going strong ever since. With players like Zappa, Angus Young, and Tony Iommi, touting the SG during important stints, if not for the entirety of their careers, it's easy to understand why many players flock to the Solid Guitar!
Simple ingredients yield incredible tone and the SG is fairly simple compared to many other models. The neck and body are made from Mahogany while the fingerboard is made of rosewood, This tonewood combo was introduced to the guitar world via the Les Paul Special and Junior models.
The neck itself is shaped to Gibson's Rounded Neck Profile, a medium-sized neck with a fuller feeling than the SlimTaper found on the 1961 Style SG. The Rosewood FIngerboard carries a 12" fingerboard radius and 22 Medium-Jumbo Frets. 1.69" Nut Width, Tusq Nut from Graph-Tech, and 24.75" scale length round out the important neck-numericals.
The 490H and 490T humbuckers have been around for decades and many of us swear by them. Especially if the 2nd Channel of your amp is your thing. Each pickup has its own volume and tone control. A 3-Way Pickup Toggle offers traditional functionality.
