It is the perfect marriage of Gibson's heritage and innovation.
The Limited Run SG Carved Top AAA Ocean Blue 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 Ocean Blue 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 Ocean Blue 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 Ocean Blue 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.
