SGs Don't Get More Classic Than This

Immortalized by Santana at Woodstock and smashed onstage by Townsend, the Gibson SG is a rock icon. The Nashville-made SG Original takes you back to the SG's roots with its slim-profile neck and and lyre vibrato tailpiece. This solidbody electric guitar's lightweight mahogany body delivers great sustain and no pain, while a pair of '57 Classic pickups serve up a massive arsenal of fat, snarling tone. And the nitro finish looks and feels luscious, while enhancing the sound of this legendary rock machine. Own your piece of rock history - the Gibson SG Original.

Gibson SG Original Solidbody Electric Guitar at a Glance:
  • '57 Classic humbuckers deliver spot-on PAF tone
  • You just can't beat the feel of this slim SG neck
  • Nitrocellulose finish for yummy vintage looks and feel
'57 Classic humbuckers deliver spot-on PAF tone

The pickups that Gibson spec'd for the SG Original are as true to the sound of the original 1961 model as it gets. That's because Gibson engineered their '57 Classic humbuckers to capture the warmth, smooth playing dynamics, and overall character of their breakthrough PAFs. When you think of the slightly rude sound of classic rock, you're already imagining the fat, snarling tone you'll hear when you play your SG Standard through a tube amp cranked to 11.

You just can't beat the feel of this slim SG neck

The SG Original gives you the smooth feel and fast action of Gibson's SG slim-profile neck - a perennial favorite of the guitarists here at Sweetwater. Early Les Pauls had huge necks, but by 1960 the neck underwent several modifications, eventually becoming the standard slim-profile carve. 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 Original.

Nitrocellulose finish for yummy vintage looks and feel

The Gibson SG Original wears a gorgeous nitrocellulose lacquer finish. Nitro finishes - standard back in the day - 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. Add to that this guitar's classy period-correct lyre vibrato tailpiece, and your Gibson SG Original has the look and feel of a classic solidbody electric guitar. And so it is.
