OVERVIEW

Triple A flamed maple top and hotter pickups.

Starting with all the power and punch that has made the Gibson SG one of the most popular guitars of all time, the SG Select adds the beauty of flamed maple. With a body carefully carved from solid, bookmatched AAA flamed maple, and a three-piece maple neck, the SG Select highlights the wood's natural elegance, as well as its incredibly resonant, singing tone. Not only is the SG Select Gibson's most exquisite SG, it also has incredible projection and detailed clarity. Powerful 490R and 498T humbuckers and gold hardware continue the theme of beauty and brawn, allowing the SG Select to set a new standard for singing sustain and handcrafted allure.



Manufactured in Nashville, TN.

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.

Sweet Sweet

A guy in my band has this guitar (Cherry). AAA Maple looks insanly good. The neck is for my personal taste not so great (i have skinny hands with long fingers) but if you have big hands and short fingers the neck will suit you fine. Sounds great both plugged and unplugged. It has a slighty weaker less-deep sound than a les Paul because of this one has less weight. But the sound isint bad!! Very good fret access all over the neck. It is and has everything a high quality Gibson SG is supposed to. Not Cheap...but very very good. If you look for a SG i strongly recommend this one if you have the cash.

It has a thick neck, finish is kinda yellowed

Ask me a question

I bought one of these because I liked the looks, and it is a good guitar. I have about 15 gibsons, and I swear by them. But I have to warn you the neck is a bit thick compared to my other '90 SG (which has a pretty thick neck to begin with), and the finish is kind of yellowed. It doesn't live up to the picture, that is for sure.
