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.

Baked Maple:
Aging maple through a “baking” process called torrefaction. The wood is kept at 200-300º F for a period of time until the wood knows it’s no longer a tree; Moisture is restored under pressure. This makes the wood very hard, sonically “live” 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’s environmentally friendly and is great for making better sounding and playing guitars!

      Comments about Gibson SG Junior '60s Left-Handed Electric Guitar:

      Got this guitar to day - looks even better than on website - mine has green/white tuners- the guitar looks stunning. Never had a single pickup guitar or PAF before I cant stop playing it - to say I am delighted is an understatment.
      Been playing pro for thirty years, Its been a long time since any guitar has pleased me as much as this one. I played through my AC30 and my POD - I love my SG junior

          Comments about Gibson SG Junior '60s Left-Handed Electric Guitar:

          I purchased this at a closeout price and really feel I stole it! It is every bit as well made and playable as my SG Standard. I don't know what all the negative fuss was about the torrefied maple fretboard cause it looks and feels like ebony to me. I will replace the pickup with a noiseless one because I can't stand 60 cycle hum, but other than that, this guitar is fantastic. very happy with this purchase

            Comments about Gibson SG Junior '60s Left-Handed Electric Guitar:

            Initially I had doubts with the P90 vs. the Humbucker. I have 5 other Lefty SG's all with Humbuckers and this P90 keeps up with Black Sabbath and AC/DC through my Vox and Marshall amps flawlessly.

            I was initially cynical regarding the "Baked Maple" fretboard (due to Gibson's seizure of rosewood) but, after reviewing this with a Luthier he praised the workmanship and functionality of the entire neck of this guitar.

            MF has an irresistible deal for this new guitar in Black so I purchased it despite my initial above concerns. I am very glad that I did. The finish is perfect and the workmanship excellent without a single defect. It feels solid and plays smoothly in my hands.

            MF sent it out promptly and it arrived well packaged.

            My Gibson SG Junior '60s Lefty Electric Guitar

            By G-string B-flat

            from Winnipeg, MB, Canada

            Comments about Gibson SG Junior '60s Left-Handed Electric Guitar:

            I love Gibson guitars, they're a favorite in my stable. This Gibson SG Junior is a basic single pick up instrument that is well made and with it's P 90 pick up has a nice bright and crisp sound.
            No frills features on this guitar, just well built.
            The quality of my SG Junior is up to par with my other Gibson's, it looks and feels great The body on this guitar is really light and feels good in bed - one of my favorite places to play while watching TV!
            This guitar looks and plays great. My only complaint is is it comes in a gig bag. While many other guitars in the same price range come with a hard shell case.
