OVERVIEW

A limited run model with a perfect set of soulful features.

Limited to only 360 units for all of North America, the SG Standard 120 features SG appointments beloved from the mid 1960's. With Gibson 490R and 490T Alnico magnet Humbucker pickups and a genuine mahogany body and neck, this guitar is built around that creamy SG tone of '60s Rock and Roll.

Cryogenically treated frets for long life and added sustain, and an advanced PLEK setup around a traditional nitrocellulose lacquer finish all combine to make this an SG for the ages. Comes with a Vintage Brown hardshell case and factory Limited Lifetime Warranty.

      Comments about Gibson SG Standard 120th Anniversary Electric Guitar:

      So, it seems I am THAT lucky guy that got the last one available -- when it came back on sale for a few hours with MF. This is an amazing instrument... I was incredibly mad at myself when I didn't act fast enough the first time I saw it on Sale. If it ever comes out again, I recommend you to get it right away. This guitar practically plays itself, the neck is amazing, I can reach notes and techniques I could never achieve so easily with my other guitars. Even unplugged it is so hard to put down. It is just so much fun to play! I had to tune it only once and it stills hold it very nicely a week after. Perfect intonation, the action was set flawlessly, this guitar responds to your mood, and rewards the passion you put into it. The pictures do not make justice at all, from the beautiful vintage brown case to every last detail, it is perfect. I think mine belonged to somebody else, but whomever that was treated her with tons of love and affection. Take away from the story, if you see something you really like, act fast because you could likely miss the ride and keep wondering "what if." I almost did, but now I am happy as I can be.
