50th Anniversary Jeff Tweedy SG

The Gibson 50th Anniversary Jeff Tweedy SG takes you back to the roots of one of rock's iconic instruments. Jeff is known for his rootsy song construction and organic melodicism; his early-'60s SG is one of his prized delivery methods. No wonder Gibson includes a Tweedy-spec SG in their Anniversary collection. The Tweedy SG gives you classic SG playability, a stunning Blue Mist nitro finish, two slightly underwound burstbuckers, and a vintage-correct Lyre Vibrola tailpiece. You're not only getting an outrageously great guitar - you also get a slice of history with the Gibson 50th Anniversary Jeff Tweedy SG.

Gibson 50th Anniversary Jeff Tweedy SG at a Glance:
  • Curacao de negro fingerboard
  • Nitro finish
  • Lyre Vibrola tailpiece
Curacao de negro fingerboard

The Gibson 50th Anniversary Jeff Tweedy SG sports a Curacao de negro fingerboard. Also known as pau ferro ("iron wood"), Curacao de negro is one of the hardest woods available. When it's used as fingerboard material on an SG - already famous for its low-action playability - you've got a guitar that almost plays itself.

Nitro finish

The Gibson 50th Anniversary Jeff Tweedy SG wears a gorgeous Blue Mist 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.

Lyre Vibrola tailpiece

Gibson has fitted the 50th Anniversary Jeff Tweedy SG with a vintage-correct chrome Lyre Vibrola tailpiece. This tailpiece gives you whammy capabilities (always welcome on an SG) and a unique feel and tone - not to mention an unmistakable vintage vibe.

Gibson 50th Anniversary Jeff Tweedy SG Features:
  • 2 BB1 Burstbucker pickups - slightly underwound, with medium "vintage" output
  • Mahogany body for warmth, sustain, and broad tonal spectrum
  • Curacao de negro - pau ferro ("iron wood") - a superb fingerboard material
  • Classic SG figured acrylic trapezoid fingerboard inlay
  • Blue Mist nitrocellulose lacquer enhances the instrument's tonal qualities
  • SG '61 slim, rounded profile - this axe almost plays itself
  • Chrome Lyre Vibrola tailpiece gives you ultra-cool vintage vibe
