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!
In a very welcome addition to their Original Collection, Gibson have unveiled the rather excellent SG Special. Harking back to the early 60s when this model first surfaced, the SG special of today is a retro treasure with two P90s and a bold gloss nitro finish. We love this guitar!
If ever a guitar straddles the worlds between single coil spank and full-on humbucker aggro, it is the Gibson SG Special. There is just something magical about that combination of thin bodied (but still solid) Mahogany and twin P90s that does it for us every time. Can’t decide what guitar to use for a particular sound? This will do it! Crunchy, clean, heavy, delicate…you name it, you can play it on this!
Gibson have fitted this SG out with a Slim Taper Mahogany neck, a profile that suits all styles and hand sizes. The company’s usual spec of a 22 fret, 12” radius fingerboard with Medium Jumbo frets is present and correct here, along with a quality Graph Tech nut. This model also has binding around the fingerboard for some extra visual impact. Perfect.
As befitting a ‘Special’ model, this SG is available in two fabulous metallic finishes, this one being Vintage Sparkling Burgundy. This is one stunning looking guitar!
A compensated wraparound bridge and button-key tuners help sell the vintage-authenticity nicely, adding lots to the overall impression of heritage and detail on display.
If you want a quality guitar that will shake up your playing and give you a lot of fun along with great tones, this Gibson SG Special should be at the top of your list!
