What we say:
Gibson’s new 2019 range of instruments is shaping up to be a classic year for electric guitars and basses. Doing away with the more outlandish experiments of recent years, Gibson have delivered a collection that gives guitar players everything they want!
The range is populated by iconic designs, built with all of the features and hardware choices that make sense on heritage-style instruments, in finishes that are well-regarded player favourites. It’s time to get excited about Gibson more than ever!
The Gibson SG Modern, a part of the Modern Collection of guitars, is a bold yet tasteful rethink of the SG. This could have been a risky move but we think that Gibson have really aced it with this one! There’s quite a lot going on here that is separate to, say, an SG Standard, so let’s check it out.
First off, the body is solid Mahogany but with a AA Figured Maple top. Obviously this makes a visual impact but that Maple plays a part in the sound, too. This, together with the Ebony fingerboard (another new thing) combines to make a guitar with a large amount of sustain available.
Ebony is not the only new thing about the fingerboard. There are now two extra frets, making a full two octaves available, with the SG’s classic body shape allowing easy access to them all. The neck profile is asymmetric in order to better fit your hand, and the fingerboard has a compound radius to facilitate easy string bending high up on the neck.
The pickups are Burstbucker Pro models, hotter than vintage and full of quality Gibson tones. A set of push/pull coil taps in the tone knobs expand your sonic horizons even further.
This beautiful SG is an inspired contemporary spin on the classic that we all know and love. We think guitarists and Gibson fans will really take to this one! Its available in two stunning translucent finishes, including the Trans Black Fade option shown here.
