Overview

'60s SG vibe and feel.

Inspired by the 1960s SG Special, the Gibson SG Classic Electric Guitar re-creates the look and sound of the most influential guitar in both Britain and the U.S. during the psychedelic era complete with a worn cherry finishy. It has the original all-mahogany body, dual P-90 pickups, and rosewood fingerboard with dot inlays.

A Little SG History

In 1961, the Les Paul was redesigned with a thinner body and 2 sharp cutaway horns that making the upper frets more accessible while lowering production costs. The new guitar was popular, but Les Paul the guitarist did not like it and asked to have his name removed. Gibson renamed the model the "SG" which was short for "solid guitar". Though Les Paul's name was officially removed from the model in 1961, the plastic Les Paul nameplates (positioned between the rhythm pickup and fingerboard) were in abundance in the Gibson factory and SG models having these nameplates were built and sold by Gibson up to end of 1963. SGs have been the choice of world-class artists such as Pete Townsend, Eric Clapton, Tony Iommi, and Angus Young.
