It is the perfect marriage of Gibson's heritage and innovation.
The Limited Run SG Carved Top AAA Autumn Burst Electric Guitar captures the essence of a classic Gibson design, and takes it one step further. Like the original SG Standard in 1961, the SG Carved Top Autumn Burst sets a fresh precedent for style, function, and design. Its highly figured maple top rises unexpectedly from the traditional dual-horned SG mahogany body shape, and is given a gloss Autumn Burst nitrocellulose finish to bring out the full depth of its stunning grain. It is without question the finest wood ever applied to the SG in its 49-year history. The maple top takes it above and beyond its simple aesthetic beauty, by providing the sonic quality and sustain of Gibson's legendary Les Paul Standard.
The guitar's tone is further enhanced by a pair of Burstbucker Pro humbucking pickups, which employ Alnico V magnets for a little extra sting and punch, and feature wax-potted coils to combat potential squeal and microphony. Each pickup also features two coils with unmatched windings to retain a little extra sonic edge in their enhanced vintage performance.
Other appointments include the SG's standard 24-3/4" scale length mahogany neck with two extra frets; a rosewood fingerboard with figured acrylic trapezoid inlays; Grover kidney-shaped tuners; and Gibson's traditional Tune-o-matic bridge and stopbar tailpiece. The SG Carved Top Autumn Burst is limited to just 350 guitars, and each one comes with a special Limited Run Series certificate of authenticity and a black hardshell case with white interior and silkscreened Gibson USA logo.

I have an Epiphone LP Ultra II and wanted to eventually get a Gibson USA product. I liked the SG Supreme, but they stopped making it, so I was glad when this one came out. It's a beautiful, meticulously crafted instrument. The SG style took me a little getting used to, but I love the access to the high frets and the thin body. The carved top is nothing short of seductive. The action feels like a Swiss watchmaker might have had something to do with it. It is truly incredible. The sustain is awesome, and the burstbucker pickups deliver. The finish is exquisite, although there was a tiny blemish on the backside of the neck on mine . Let's face it, you can get a really nice guitar (or two) for less money, but I feel like I got what I paid for--even if a lot of it is just the Gibson logo.
