A disctinctive tribute to the guitarist that helped embody the 50 years of the rocking spirit of the SG.

The 50th Anniversary Peter Townshend SG electric guitar captures all the classic ingredients of Gibson's great double-cutaway solidbody model. Like the best SGs of the past 50 years, the 50th Anniversary Pete Townshend SG starts with a solid mahogany body and glued-in mahogany neck, a pairing that ensures ringing sustain, superb tonal depth, and plenty of clarity and richness. The body's thin dimensions make this a pleasurably light guitar to play, while its classically beveled edges also make it comfortable on the forearm. Combine this with a beautifully ergonomic '60s neck profile, and you've got one of the sweetest playing rock machines available today.

Two biting P-90 pickups with Alnico V magnets convey the Townshend SG's sonic spunk to your amp of choice, yielding anything from deep, warm vocal tones in the neck position to endless growl and roar in the bridge, to round and snappy tones in between.

The lightning bar wrapound tailpiece keeps it all rock-solid and resonant, while up at the other end a PLEK-cut Corian nut ensures clean intonation and singing sustain. Top it all off with a set of vintage-style tuners with pearloid buttons, a unique "50 Years" headstock emblem, and a high-gloss nitrocellulose finish in Alpine White, and you've got a spectacular celebration of one of the world's favorite electric guitars, all wrapped up in an instrument you can gig with today.

Each 50th Anniversary Pete Townshend SG includes a Gibson hardshell case with "WHO" bolding stenciled on it, and owner's manual, and is covered by Gibson's Limited Lifetime Warranty and 24/7/365 customer service.

The SG Story
Way back in 1961 when the SG Standard temporarily replaced the Les Paul Standard in the Gibson line up, few were aware that a future icon of rock guitar was being introduced to the scene. Originally called the "Les Paul/SG", this radical, double-cutaway electric with two dramatic asymmetrical pointed "horns" and a thin all-mahogany body was worlds away from the single-cutaway maple and mahogany Les Paul that it replaced. It proved to have similar power, punch and versatility, but also expressed a voice all its own, one that has grabbed many heavy rock and metal players in particular, alongside countless classic rock and blues artists. By the time the single-cutaway Les Paul returned in the late '60s, the SG Standard was already a legend, and had forever claimed its place in rock history.
