    The voice of '60s classic rock.

    What do Pete Townshend, Carlos Santana, and Tony Iommi all have in common? Back in the '60s, each of these legendary guitarists played a Gibson SG Special with P-90 pickups—and made music history in the process. To bring this beloved rocker back to guitarists in the 21st century, Gibson USA introduces the SG Special '60s Tribute, a guitar that honors the beloved SG Specials of nearly 50 years ago, in an instrument primed with the tone, versatility, and playability demanded by modern musicians.

    Since its arrival on the scene in 1961 (originally as the Les Paul/SG Special), Gibson's dual-horned, double-cutaway SG has been an iconic rock axe, and has become known for solid performance and tonal versatility that is unparalleled in the guitar world. The SG Special '60s Tribute is based around the same revered tonewoods, glued-in neck, and Alnico-magnet P-90 pickups that made its predecessor legendary, with the same SlimTaper™ '60s neck profile that is behind some of the fastest-playing guitars in history. Stripped-down and ready for business, the SG Special '60s Tribute has the look and feel of a well-played friend right out of the gigbag (included), and comes in at a price that any hard-working player can afford.

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

      I have had this guitar about two weeks now. I must confess when I unpacked it I was not impressed initially. Although all the reviews I had read emphasized that this was a bare bones guitar I wasn't expecting it to be quite so plain. If you are looking for flash, bells and whistles this is not the guitar for you. The set up was okay out of the box but could use a little adjustment and the intonation was spot on. The gig bag it came with was a medium quality Gibson bag. Where this guitar sold itself to me was in it's playability and amazing tone. This guitar screams! The P90 pickups produce monster tones and this axe flat out rocks. The neck feels slightly thicker than that of my Les Pauls and is on par with my mid 90's SG special. The rosewood fingerboard is responsive and feels good. The nitro finish is a flat ebony and appears to be fairly thin. The tuners are Kluson type and seem to be of good quality. While nice looking this is no show piece but rather a players guitar. It is fully capable of getting any 60's, 70's and 80's rock tones as well as some nice jazz and country tones. This is without question the most comfortable guitar I have ever played and I feel like I play faster and cleaner on this guitar. For the price it is worth every penny and then some. I would urge all lefties out there to pick one up.

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

        I wanted to add another solid body guitar with a P90s into my herd, and this one was the best that I could find for the money. I love the feel of the neck. it is not glossy and you can actually feel the wood grains. I heard some people complaining about this guitar being stripped down and "unfinished", but this is the very reason it feels so perfect for gigging and practicing. I have an SG standard which is certainly more "Majestic", but it is a different animal, so don't be fooled by the 60s tribute faded look.The playability is the secret weapon of this guitar. It is a light weight guitar with a solid electronics(as expected from Gibson), good tuners, awesome pickups and a fast neck. Get one while they are still around!

        SHARP, TIGHT AND BRIGHT - SG 60's Tribute

        By Jonathan Cosky

        from Houston, TX

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

        For classic rock sound the Gibson SG 60's tribute is tough to beat. Got some great Santana/Abraxas sounds on the neck pickup my JVM and some spot on Angus Young sounds on the bridge. You can get some great screamin blues sounds or bright 70's Brit punk as well. Not much use for modern metal sounds but great for anything 60's-70's rock. Another great addition to any collection.
        The P90's are awesome. Such a change of pace from typical Hi gain humbucker sound you see everywhere. They have a really sharp attack and bite, yet still decent sustain. They are a bit on the bright side so be ready to adjust your amp eq. But they work surprisingly well with a high gain amp (JVM410). Everything else standard for a Gibson in this price range - nothing more, nothing less.
        The worn cherry finish is cool. lightest guitar I've played on for sure. It came set up decently, overall shape was B+, especially for being used. I must say though I was very disappointed with Musicians Friends packaging job. The UPS box was actually open when I got it (Poor tape job). And the guitar was left in a soft case with no other packaging just in a large open box. Luckily other than a few nicks that were probably already there everything was fine.
        Can't beat the value here. For well under a grand to own an actual Gibson SG with the craftsmenship you come to expect with the name, you can't beat it.
