The Sound and Style of a Classic SG!Gibson's SG Tribute '60s model solidbody electric guitar takes you back to the early days of one of rock's most iconic instruments. In the nearly seven years that Gibson stopped production on the original Les Paul sales in favor of the this lighter and more aggressive-sounding instrument, the SG "Solid Guitar" went from being an outlandish model Les Paul himself rejected to a staple of the emerging world of hard rock. Why? Because the grit and growl this magnificently accessible guitar had to offer was a perfect fit for the new wave of distortion-seeking, amp-cranking, solo-loving guitarists who change the face of the music world forever. And when you get your hands on the slim '60s neck and high-flying Burstbucker pickups loaded on the Gibson SG Tribute '60s guitar, you'll hear why.
Gibson SG Tribute '60s Solidbody Electric Guitar at a Glance:
BurstBucker pickups deliver that timeless PAF humbucker tone
When nothing but classic SG tone will do, then it's time to check out this 2013 Gibson SG Tribute '60s model guitar. Loaded with a set of BurstBucker humbucking pickups, the SG Tribute '60s electric guitar gives you the tight low end, complex midrange, and sweet highs you long for - in short, everything you expect when you pick up an SG! That's because Gibson designed their BurstBucker pickups to recreate the sound of the original PAF humbuckers to perfection. So if you want the time-tested tone of a classic, first-generation SG, then the SG Tribute '60s is the guitar for you.
You just can't beat the feel of this slim '60s-style SG neck
This Gibson SG Tribute '60s gives you the smooth feel and fast action of Gibson's SG slim profile neck. Early Les Pauls had huge necks, but by 1960 the neck underwent several modifications, eventually becoming the standard SlimTaper carve. This SG Tribute '60s takes the evolution of fast Gibson guitar neck carves one step farther, making this the fastest off-the-shelf SG ever designed. And when you add to that the ultra-smooth feel of its bound rosewood fingerboard, you get the best of both comfort and performance from the Gibson SG Tribute '60s.
Bringing back a legacy of time-tested rock tone
It's hard to believe that in 1961, Gibson decided to discontinue the original Les Paul guitar. No one really knows why. In fact, the first SGs were actually going to be called Les Pauls, until Les Paul himself objected, so they just shortened Solid Guitar to SG and called it good. By the time Gibson started Les Pauls again, the SG was so popular that they simply kept making them. As it turned out, a lot of guitarists enjoyed the slightly ruder and more aggressive sound of this guitar - and the SG Tribute '60s model nails the sound perfectly. Just pair this SG Tribute '60s with a classic high-gain tube amp, and you'll get a pretty good idea what inspired many of the biggest names in rock history.
