A Golden SG Custom!

The Gibson Custom SG Custom solidbody electric guitar is a powerful and elegant slice of vintage Gibson. The first time you pick up this sleek, iconic axe, you'll be blown away by its lightning-fast playability - courtesy of its SlimTaper neck carve. The deep double cutaway gives you free access all the way up the fretboard, while its modern medium-jumbo frets make your string bends effortless and '57 Classic humbuckers serve up mountains of immense, sustaining tone. Own your piece of rock history, with the Gibson Custom SG Custom.

Gibson Custom SG Custom Solidbody Electric Guitar at a Glance:

  • SlimTaper neck profile for lightning-fast playability
  • '57 Classic humbuckers give you amazing tonal versatility, power, and sustain
  • Nitrocellulose finish, for the look of a well-aged classic
SlimTaper neck profile for lightning-fast playability

The Gibson SG is famous for its comfortable, fast-action neck, and the SG Custom doesn't disappoint. Whether you're chording down low or soloing up high, this guitar's SlimTaper neck profile always feels just right. With its rosewood fingerboard and iconic double-horned cutaway that gives you easy access to all 22 frets, the SG Custom is a lean, classic rock machine.

'57 Classic humbuckers give you amazing tonal versatility, power, and sustain

This Gibson Custom SG Custom is fitted with a pair of Gibson's PAF-style '57 Classic humbuckers. These pickups sport authentic Alnico II magnets, and are wound with 42-AWG enamel-coated wire - just like the originals. The coils are wax potted to ward off microphonic squeal, making them the perfect pups for your high-gain excesses. Classically routed through independent volume and tone controls, this dynamic duo serves up articulate, warm voicings from the neck position, soaring liquid bridge tones, and a broad range of sweet crunch in between.

Nitrocellulose finish, for the look of a well-aged classic

The Gibson Custom SG Custom wears a gorgeous hand-sprayed nitrocellulose lacquer finish. Nitro finishes - standard back in the '60s - are significantly thinner than today's polyurethane finishes, allowing the guitar to "breathe." Nitro finishes not only look vintage-y wonderful; they also enhance the instrument's tonal qualities. This guitar has the look (and feel) of a well-aged classic.
