OVERVIEW

A pure, no-frills, genuine SG.

The basic, no-nonsense design, SG looks, and P-90 sound combine to produce an axe of subdued good looks and sonic firepower. Equipped with a genuine mahogany body, rounded SG mahogany Slim Taper neck, and a single P-90 "Dog Ear" pickup that produces plenty of gutsy, gritty tones enhanced by the warmth and bite of the mahogany body. The new baked maple fingerboard has the tactile feel and response of ebony, but with a very traditional warm, brown finish. It's extremely stable, fast and smooth.

What Is Baked Maple?
Aging maple through a œbaking process called torrefaction. The wood is kept at 200-300º F for a period of time until the wood knows it' no longer a tree; Moisture is restored under pressure. This makes the wood very hard, sonically œlive and extremely stable. The snappy sound of ebony, with the look of medium-brown pau ferro. Many boutique manufacturers are now using this because it improves the wood with no chemical treatment, it' environmentally friendly and is great for making better sounding and playing guitars!

Awesome Guitar

Comments about Gibson SG Junior 60's Electric Guitar:

overall, great guitar, sounds amazing and plays just as good, i would recommend this guitar to anyone who likes SGs or p90s
one p90 aint much, but its all you need. You can go from a nice clean tone to a punchy overdrive by rolling back the volume knob
Well built guitar, i love the set neck and the maple fretboard gives it a nice snappy sound
great value for the price, why pay more for stuff you dont need

Comments about Gibson SG Junior 60's Electric Guitar:

Good.
SGs, and SG Juniors in particular are an acquierd taste... and I was hungry!

The Alnico V P-90 is more versatile than you might expect. The neck is like butter. I especially appreciate the non-compensated bridge/tailpiece... perfect place to rest the edge of my hand. Intonation? Believe it or not, it's spot-on. I'm guessing it's because the bridge radius matches the fingerboard radius exactly, but what do I know? (I know it sounds good to me!)

Looks like the price might be going up. If you want one, now's a good time.
Gibsons made in the USA are frickin' expensive. Thank goodness for "Street Pricing."

        Comments about Gibson SG Junior 60's Electric Guitar:

        This guitar feels amazing. Fit and finish is perfect. Gibson simply owns the guitar making market as far as I'm concerned. Picked up this beauty since it's close to the one Tim Sult (Clutch) used on Robot/Hive Exodus. Totally thrilled with it. Can't say enough good things about it. The P90 sounds amazing. The neck is flawless and comfortable. Get it folks, you won't regret it!

          Comments about Gibson SG Junior 60's Electric Guitar:

          I was very pleased with this right out of the package. Musicians Friend outdid themselves. Not only did this piece come with a hard shell case rather than the gig bag as described, but the body is one solid piece of wood. No bad spots, fantastic quality, the cherry is freakin gorgeous and the body has a feel to it that not much can come close too. The smell of the finish is great, I know that sounds silly, but this is something to behold before you even play it. Then it gets even better. I have small hands and I am very comfortable on the fretboard. We loved it so much we bought another (not a jr) very similar to it. The only "downfall" is that you can't set the intonation on this bridge for each string, so it gets close, but not precise. The other 60s sg you can tho. So we set this one up as a slide guitar and it plays beautifully.

            Comments about Gibson SG Junior 60's Electric Guitar:

            I've played many axes from the cheaper Squiers to expensive USA Fenders and all in between. For my own tastes, style, and hands this SG Junior is simply the finest made, feeling, and sounding instrument I've had the pleasure to play. Great work Gibson USA...keep on rocking out the fantastic craftsmanship!

            SG Junior 60's

            Comments about Gibson SG Junior 60's Electric Guitar:

            One P-90 at the bridge is all you need. Roll off the treble & you have a warm blues-sound.
            It has the sustain of the Les Pauls costing thousands.
            This guitar is the best buy available.
            The action is great. Plays like a custom Les Paul without the weight. And, it has all the sustain of the expensive LP's.
            Handmade in Nashville. Sounds Great, you get a clear, well balanced sound that can be converted into any style of music. Or, you can roll down the volume and/or bass & it becomes very warm but well balanced between the bass & treble notes.
            For $850? I'd give it an 11 but the scale doesn't go that far.

            Comments about Gibson SG Junior 60's Electric Guitar:

            Love this guitar, if your itching for an SG junior then get this one!!! Great guitar for the money!
            Straight forward and simple just the way it outta be!!! I love juniors. You can get a lot of different tones just by rolling on or off volume or tone. This guitar sounds great and stays in tune perfect. The maple fret board sounds great, great if you like a twangy clean sound but sounds perfect distorted to.
            The build quality on this guitar is awesome. Neck is nice and smooth and the cherry finish is amazing. The body is really light and thin. I have an SG junior from 03 when they made them with the full pickguard and diffrence in weight between them is amazing, I dont know if Gibson is trying to use less wood or what but the 03 junior is a lot thicker and way heavier then this one. I still love them both though.
            Great guitar for the money, though I wish they could sell them a little cheaper... Long live juniors i love this guitar

              For me, This was a great bang for the buck - purchase.. I needed a back up rig for a much more pricier axe and feel like I got an old girl friend back after playing this a couple of days.. the customer service at Musican's Friend was 5 stars and so is this Guitar...

              This is a very simple guitar and for Gibson quality it is as good as it gets, I have complicated guitars like Gretsches that have knobs for every occasion but this is good sound, feel and simplicity at its best with Gibson craftsmanship. I give it an all thumbs up for all purposes
