OVERVIEW

The voice of '60s classic rock.

An icon of classic '60s rock.Back in the '60s, legendary guitarists Carlos Santana, Pete Townshend and Tony Iommi all made music history playing Gibson SG Specials with P-90 pickups. Now, to honor the iconic SG Specials of nearly 50 years ago, Gibson USA introduces the SG Special '60s Tribute, to make this beloved rocker available to guitarists in the 21st century. Since its initial introduction in 1961 (originally as the Les Paul/SG Special), Gibson's dual-horn, double-cutaway SG has been an iconic rock guitar, due to its reliable performance, attention-demanding looks and tonal adaptability. The SG Special '60s Tribute is constructed with the same classic tonewoods, glued-in set neck, and P-90 Alnico-magnet pickups that made its predecessor famous, with the same SlimTaper '60s neck profile found on many of the fastest-playing guitars in history. Lean, mean and ready to rock, the SG Special '60s Tribute has the look and feel of a well-played workhorse right out of the gig bag, and is offered at an incredible price that is difficult to resist.Use the drop-down menu above to choose colors and other options.

I am Very happy with the purchase, the neck profile is slim and very fast. In general this is just a very comfortable guitar to play it is light and has nice contours that keep it from digging in when playing for long periods.
I am very impressed with the sound I get from this guitar, but it is light on any extras. There is no neck binding and the finish on the guitar lacks the extra coats of varnish to help it resist wearing and the gig bag case is marginal at best. This guitar is one you will quickly make your own just by playing it as it picks up nicks and wear marks fairly easily, especially the pick guard which can be easily scratched just by the lightest of touches. I kind of like this however, as I think a guitar should take on the marks of it journey as it is played, then it becomes mine and different from any other just from the wear it has taken on.
This guitar is very solid and I have seen nothing that sticks out as poor quality except the cheep plastic used on the pick guard. The knobs and jack are all solid and tight and the tuners are well made. The guitar holds a tune amazingly well, even with lots of use. I did have to adjust both the intonation and the action a fair bit before I was happy with them, but I expect Gibson dosn't spend a lot of time setting up these less expensive instruments before they ship them out.
I am very happy with the value, for the price point that this guitar is at the value seems right. My one beef here is that I think Gibson could have made a better case for this guitar as the gig bag is marginal and for the ease with which the finish can be dinged I would suggest getting a hard shell case for this if you are going to be packing it around a lot.

This is a budget no frills Gibson. Terrible ratty looking pickguard which I was never able to find a reasonable priced replacement for. Headstock logo is a screen. Dot inlays. No binding, but i actually kind of like the look. That being said, the guitar has a nice resonance when played unplugged. The P90s are quite good in my opinion. I see no reason to swap them out. The guitar plays very well with low action and no fretting issues or buzz.
My principle complaint is the flat finish. I am not hard on guitars. I have owned guitars for years and not put a scratch on them. The finish on this, in my case the white, is a magnet for dings and nicks. I managed to put a bad looking nick in the curve of the bottom horn while holding it in my lap and changing strings. I originally had it sitting on a hard shell case, but that put a black scuff on the back of the guitar just sitting on it. The final straw happened again while changing strings, (not the same occasion) a tail has hanging down from the heavy E (a .52 gauge i think) and while i was winding it, the string left a circular gouge around the tuning peg in the finish of the headstock. By gouge i mean that it went through to the wood. I couldn't believe it.
I've only owned it for a few months and I'm planning to sell it. It is a difficult decision in that i will certainly lose money and the guitar plays and sounds quite good. But i'm afraid it will look like complete trash in a few years with that finish. I've owned budget guitars and expensive guitars. I've never seen a guitar scuff up the way this one does. Unless you want a relic appearance i would avoid it. This only confirms my opinion that Gibson is vastly overpriced. Laughably overpriced. I wanted to give this a chance because it seemed like an effort to make an affordable product and I feel like i got burned.

Planning to buy a Reverend to replace it.

I Love My Gibson SG Special!

By Downtheshore1

Comments about Gibson Limited Run SG Special '60s Tribute Electric Guitar:

I looked at electric guitars that were specifically designed for women. What I was searching for was a guitar of lighter weight, balanced, with a smaller tapered neck because of my smaller hands and physical limitations. I wanted an instrument that had a certain playability that I hadn't found until now. I found what I was looking for in this guitar.
I was looking for a guitar that fit me better than my Stratocaster.
I'm an average-sized woman, which means that I'm a lot smaller than an average-sized guy. I needed a smaller, lighter weight instrument of decent quality. I got so much more than I asked for.
The SG Special is indeed very special. It has a wonderful playability that is just a delight.
The Gibson is somewhere around four pounds lighter than my Fender, and the slim tapered neck is just so much easier to get my smallish hand around.
The Gibson is affordable, it's made in the USA, it has a lovely sound, it's lightweight; in short, it's beautiful.
It makes my playing sound better than it actually is, if that makes sense.
I don't know about the finish on the other Gibson SG Specials, but the Worn Cherry is a lovely warm shade of cherry, which admirably accents the beautiful wood grain. The finish is even-toned, and scratch-free, and the black knobs against the cherry finish are a lovely accent.
This guitar has just what I want. It's so rare to find an instrument that doesn't feel too large for me. I just want to play it all the time. Somebody said that you'll want to take it to bed. I second that emotion.
Beautifully crafted instrument. Quality control is right on. It's a work of art.
The only suggestion that I have is that it needs a more durable pick guard, and a slightly roomier gig bag. It's a really tight fit.
I'm very happy with the price of this guitar. I researched my purchase very thoroughly before I decided to buy this model from Musician's Friend. I'm so thrilled that this affordable instrument is made in the USA! I was afraid that I'd have to pay much more for this kind of quality.

Gibson playability and a great price

Comments about Gibson Limited Run SG Special '60s Tribute Electric Guitar:

8
Love the P-90 sounds. Maybe not for the shredders in the audience but for you classic rock/blues players it can't be beat. This guitar has all the features I need or want: Two pickups and a 3 way switch, slim taper 60's neck which allows for a very low action. I don't care if the finish is faded or top of the line glitzy, it's the sound and the playability that are important to me. If I bought a high dollar Les Paul and it got dinged I would be very upset. This guitar would only look better if it got even more worn or dinged a bit.

Great player! Gibson SG 60's Tribute

By wayne montana

from usa

Comments about Gibson Limited Run SG Special '60s Tribute Electric Guitar:

Things I love: Nitro finish, neck profile, light weight, well balanced, overall sound is very dynamic due to the P90 pickups, small 60's pick guard, overall feel.

Things I don't love: the black knobs. I would prefer the clasic top hat knobs with the silver inserts.

Some other SG models I've played have been neck heavy and not as light as this SG 60's Tribute.
I also really like the P90's. Overall it's great playing, sounding and feeling guitar. A great deal!
First off these P90's sound great clean. I am very happy with the rich tones and great definition of the neck pickup. The nitro finish and fretboard is perfect on mine. Mine is white and super cool looking. The fantastic fret work and light resonant body really make the guitar pop.
The neck profile is super fast. The guitar is light and well balanced when standing and very comfortable to play.
the 1st one I received had a fretboard ding in it OR a natural wood deformation. It also had some bad connections in the output jack and neck volume pot. The second one I received is an incredible guitar.
I got mine for a killer deal. I would say at full price the 60's Tribute SG still well worth it.

Gibson should be ashamed!!!!!

Comments about Gibson Limited Run SG Special '60s Tribute Electric Guitar:

I never thought i would say this about gibson,but this guitar is a peice of junk,i thought it would grow on me not this one,OH it never stays in tune,i should have sent back,now i can't wait to unload it,i guess gibson was going after a market,shame on me
It's hard to say,standard gibson layout,the knobs seem to be closer together then on my other gibsons if you have fat fingers your gonna have a hard time useing them,you can,t put speed knobs on it.
Cheap everything on this guitar,the pick guard is some sort of rubber or vinyl,it's not gonna hold up at all,not yet 3 wks old and it's beat up all ready,and i'm not hard on pick gaurds!!!
Like i said Gibson should ashamed,there is no VALUE to this guitar.

    Comments about Gibson Limited Run SG Special '60s Tribute Electric Guitar:

    I've owned this guitar (worn white ) for two weeks now... and the verdict is in... This guitar rocks!! ok Ive read the other negative reviews, and here is how I respond to them... yes, this is a stripped down model... no binding, dot inlays, bland knobs and pick guard... blah blah blah... but guess what? this is still a solid body Gibson with all the things that make Gibsons great! Mohagany set neck into Mohagany body... Gibson Hardware, and original P90 pickups! If you are looking for a guitar with all the bells and whistles, this is not for you. If you want a guitar with a vintage vibe, that sounds great , and plays great, then this guitar is for you. I have other guitars with beautiful ammenities, and some dont play as well as this 60's SG. The guitar sounded great right out of the box, but needed to be set up. I changed the strings to the brand and guage that I use, lowered the action, set the intonation, and this thing was ready to rock. It did not need a truss rod adjustment. I ordered some gibson top hat knobs with silver inserts...($14.00) and now it looks more like the more expensive models.. easy , cheap fix. I also found a replacement multi ply pick guard on line... Because I like the look better... Bottom line, this is a solid guitar that plays, and sounds great,that is affordable, and has awesome P90 punch.
    Set it up properly and have some fun.

    Comments about Gibson Limited Run SG Special '60s Tribute Electric Guitar:

    Im gonna start this by saying I don't like the SG. In general i just do not like them. Now that being said, I love this guitar. Its plays great, and it looks great. The one i played had the white finish and was gorgeous. Also I've always been a fan of the humbuckers but i love the sound of this guitar. And its not insanely overpriced like most Gibsons. Its not much more than a Fender highway one. So it plays good, sounds good, looks good, and it just feels good. Looks to me like Gibsons got a winner.

    Gibson has been my favorite for 45 years

    By Zootone Bobsled

    from Oil Spill City, FL-Bama

    See all my reviews

    Comments about Gibson Limited Run SG Special '60s Tribute Electric Guitar:

    I just got a natural model from MF. I own 4 SG's already, old and new and this one was similar in all respects to the others with one exception. My only complaint is either a mistake or a bad sign of things to come. The whole back finish was not sanded with fine grit paper before the final coat of finish and is really rough because of that. If it was a mistake I can live with that. If it is a way to save money on production then Gibson is going to gradually move into the world of has beens like most other guitar names. I hope that this is not the beginning of the end for the last US made product. It would also be good if they would offer customers more choices in picking wood and finishes and I would buy more of them. I hate that they mass produce what they think people want and you are stuck with certain colors and woods etc. Like the SG's, I got a natural finish one a few years back and otherwise you get red or brown, but now mostly just red. Let people order and pick their own style and then they would be more to the players style.

    Gibson Finally Listening to Players

    By StudPicker2011

    from NYC

    Comments about Gibson Limited Run SG Special '60s Tribute Electric Guitar:

    It's fantastic that Gibson is listening to its players and making USA instruments that can compete with Chinese imports on price. These SGs are every bit as good in fit/finish as the SG standards from the 60s and 70s - and are a great value. I don't give anything a 5 but I'll give this a 5 for value. It's just too bad Gibson wouldn't offer a hard case for maybe a $50-75 upcharge. That's something we could import from China without regret. PS - on the P-90s... remember folks these are essentially a single-coil pickup. You can't compare the output to a PAF or any other humbucker... and it's not the same sound - at all. That said, I love them - you get a more sparkle than a humbucker and they're nowhere near as thin sounding as a tele or strat. Right in the middle- a sound that is very popular right now.

    Do not miss this limited release

    Comments about Gibson Limited Run SG Special '60s Tribute Electric Guitar:

    I am telling you right now, this limited run is a special run. Okay, fine, it doesn't have binding. Who cares, you don't need it. Let me tell you that I have played $3000+ guitars and a few customs. This one is amazing and not only can hold it's own with the higher priced guitars, it owns them. In fact, other than customs, I haven't come across a guitar like this. The sound is amazing, it is so light on the shoulders when playing -- I have no complaints at all. It arrived in perfect action and set-up. Best of all, this is a SG, 60's style for under a $1000. Even though the nut width is 1 11/16 (during this time they were usually 1 9/16) it still plays so easy because of the thinness. Do it, grab it, you will not regret it.

    Light & fast; also, almost naked

    By trudeau

    from Shreveport, La

    See all my reviews

    Comments about Gibson Limited Run SG Special '60s Tribute Electric Guitar:

    Having gotten it today from Musicians Friend - in like 3 days - I can offer first impressions. a) Closely observed, there's less finish on it than I thought there would be. The thin coat of white finish barely covers the raw wood. A coupla feet away from the guitar the look is workmanlike and OK. b) Love the tuners! c) Action is reasonably low and fast. Just the slightest bit of fret rattle. c) Frets seem nicely seated. But they are noticeable along the outside edge of the fretboard. d) Pickup switch does not seat quite solidly in the treble position. Middle and Rhythm positions are fine. e) The pickguard seemed somewhat scratched in a reflective light. There was no stick-on plastic protection on it. I think it is simply one seriously cheap piece of plastic. f) Light as a bird. That's important to me. g) Neck is pleasingly slim. h) Love the fret access up past the 15th fret. i) P-90s have almost as much power and sustain as humbuckers. The bridge pickup is a bit darker in sound than I'd expected. Punched up the treble a bit on the Blues Junior and all is good. j) Jack clicks solidly.Overall, a keeper. I think time spent playing her will bring us even closer together. Ps: Epiphone hardshell case seems an excellent fit and of good quality.

    The Best SG Available Right Now

    By DaveH003

    from Portland, OR

    See all my reviews

    Comments about Gibson Limited Run SG Special '60s Tribute Electric Guitar:

    I just bought this for my son and now I want one for myself. The finish is amazing, the body is lighter than most SG's due to it's 60's tapering on the body and neck, and the P-90 pickups deliver outstanding tone. It is the perfect combination of Gibson feel with single-coil tone. For the price, this is the best deal going from Gibson. The only word of warning is that this is a 60's style neck, which is thinner than its 50's style "baseball bat" counterpart. I prefer the 60's neck because of the thinner feel, but if you want the standard SG/LP neck then this is not what you are looking for. Otherwise, buy this thing now while it is still available.

    Nostalgia becomes reality

    By trudeau

    from Shreveport, La

    See all my reviews

    Comments about Gibson Limited Run SG Special '60s Tribute Electric Guitar:

    Since the slim neck and beveled body of the Gibson SG was imprinted upon me in my teenage years by friends' SG's I've wanted to get back to it. This SG Special has the essence of what I've longed for. At 3 weeks since MF rushed it to me, the comfort level goes up each time I play. From a few feet away, hanging on me or on a stand, this white one radiates classic beauty. Up close, the finish is an almost painfully thin coat of paint. And, examined closely, the pickguard is already surprisingly scratched - and I'm not an abusive player.But when I sling it on, this light-as-a-bird guitar energizes me. The p-90 pickups are righteous: powerful, lively, smartly varied in tone from bridge to both to neck.Gibson's Kluson-style tuners I love. They seem rock-solid and I love the extra grip space. The bridge is a smooth platform for picking.Action out of the box - I worried about this factor - is low and fast. The wide-slim neck somehow unleashes fretboard adventures. And the very deep cutaway takes my hands to high octave stops I hadn't imagined. The SG is worth it to me for that factor alone. My initial worry about the selector switch is gone. It's solid. Love the tummy and arm-friendly beveling of the SG body. This 60's tribute SG gives me the vibe of a new mistress. I'm smitten. One more thing: the Epiphone SG case is almost certainly a good idea: Gibson necks are to be protected. The Epi case is sturdy, well-padded and looks rich.

    Rockin' Little Surprise

    By DrumBum777

    from Southern Maine

    See all my reviews

    Comments about Gibson Limited Run SG Special '60s Tribute Electric Guitar:

    This guitar is SUPER light! No back/neck strain like some of my heavier guitars will cause. When it first arrived, I thought the box was empty! It is THAT light! Super thin neck and body makes you "think" cheap, but as soon as you play it, the big fat metal crunch or the super sweet, crystal clear clean tones will blow you away. By far, my absolute favorite guitar now! It is a monster and the "stripped down" aspect of it's design really does give it an authentic 60' look and feel right out of the box. I really feel like I am playing on an actual piece of rock history. This SG is not missing a thing. The P-90's are "tonal beauty": clean or driven. There are a million gorgeous sounds you can make with this baby - it is set up perfectly. I had originally though of buying it's more expensive "big brother" , bu I can tell you now, this guitar can kick ax right up there with big bro!Any kudos to Musician's Friend who went out of their way to make sure I was completely satisfied with my choice. Dealing with you guys gives me a great level of confidence that I can think outside the box and experiment a bit. This has led to me now owning this Rockin' Little Surprise! I'm super glad about the choice and feel blessed to have found a guitar that fits me so well and is deceivingly powerful! Blown away!

    Bang for the Buck and More

    Comments about Gibson Limited Run SG Special '60s Tribute Electric Guitar:

    Just got this from the UPS man yesterday. Unbelievably fast processing and delivery as usual with Musician's Friend. Customer service excellent as usual also - called them about another guitar, found this Gibson SG as referral by the agent.The guitar itself is amazing, certainly for the dollar value, but also simply on its own. I guess one can expect this from Gibson, but right out of the box it played perfectly. No hint of fret buzz anywhere, stays in tune even during a good hammering, and the neck is smooth and jackrabbit fast. Honestly, you won't want to put it down.If I have a complaint, and I don't really, but I'm not quite as much of a fan of the P90 pickups as I thought I would be. Not quite as hot as the PAFs on Les Pauls etc. That said, pickups are entirely subjective and my friends that heard the guitar think it sounds just brilliant. I'd say this one's a no brainer for the money, but if you are searching for something that plays like a Strat but has the tonal range of a Les Paul, you won't go wrong here.

    My SG came right of the box with respectable playing action. Found no flaws on the finish. (natural for me). Sounded very good unplugged. After playing her through one of my favorite amps I can say well worth the money. Super crisp with plenty of body to the tone of this ax. Very nice!

Plugged in or not I am constantly playing it. The sound of the P-90"s is a true rock n roll dream tone. Gibson made a Winner here and if you buy you won't be unhappy

    Comments about Gibson Limited Run SG Special '60s Tribute Electric Guitar:

    Great Guitar! Very Light, It has to be at least 2 pounds lighter than my Epi G400. If this is a limited run then my advise to you is get one now. Can't complain about the price for the quality of this SG. I wanted this guitar because i love the slim tapered necks, very smooth and fast. But more importantly the tones i can get with the P-90s. The cleans are crisp, and so is the crunch. It was ready to go right out of the box and is definitely worth the value of a price. This Gibson asks to be played even when it not plugged in. Thank You Gibson!!

    Comments about Gibson Limited Run SG Special '60s Tribute Electric Guitar:

    This is a good guitar, but two features that I do not appreciate: the fret ends, while neatly lined up, need to be rounded off more smoothly; the guitar is off balance, with the neck a bit too heavy in relation to the body. Good features are abundant, such as the fit and finish, and the P-90 pickups: Gibson quality at its finest!
