Celebrate the '70s - SG Style!

Built for speed and performance the Gibson SG Tribute '70s model solidbody electric guitar capture the spirit of an age of hard rock history. By the 1970s, the Gibson SG had come a long way from the slim, lightweight replacement for the original Les Paul, in fact, as the Les Paul made its comeback, the SG found its home in the hands of the day's hardest rockers. A lot had changed about the SG's overall character, as it become ever more performance driven. You'll experience this for yourself, the first time you get your hands on the SG Tribute '70s guitar's ultra-sleek 1970s neck carve. The pickups too (represented by a pair Dirty Fingers humbuckers) had become more aggressive, making the Gibson SG Tribute '70s a natural choice for rock and early metal.

Gibson SG Tribute '70s Solidbody Electric Guitar at a Glance:
  • Dirty Fingers pickups deliver the aggressive sound of hard rock
  • You just can't beat the feel of this ultra-fast '70s-style SG neck

Dirty Fingers pickups deliver the aggressive sound of hard rock

When modern punk and metal guitarists started experimenting with vintage pickups in the early 2000s, it's little wonder that they rekindled the demand for Gibson's long-out-of-production Dirty Fingers humbucking pickups. After all, it was only a little over two decades before that these pickups helped to divide the nasty, raw, and distortion-rich sound that broke punk and metal away from mainstream rock. The Gibson SG Tribute '70s model is a lot like the guitars that inspired these modern shredders, featuring the performance and the tone that kicked off two waves of aggressive rock. Whether you're diming a classic British high-gain stack or unleashing the fury of a tubetastic terror from the hills of California, the SG Tribute '70s will let your amp unleash the fury your music demands.

You just can't beat the feel of this slim '70s-style SG neck

Like a finely tuned Italian sports car, the '70s-era Gibson SG was all about performance and handling. One of the ways Gibson achieved this effect was by continuously shaving down and reshaping the neck to meet the ever-growing need for speed ever-more aggressive guitarists demanded. The SG Tribute '70s guitar recreates this pared-down neck profile wonderfully, balancing the breadth of the fretboard with a shallow carve that lets your fingers fly down the fretboard. If your playing style calls for fast and precise fingering techniques, then the SG Tribute '70s is the Gibson guitar for you!

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 more aggressive sound of this guitar - and the SG Tribute '70s model captures this sound at in its glorious heyday. Just pair this SG Tribute '70s with a high-gain tube amp, dime that baby, and tear loose. The sound you'll hear is the the very foundation of modern rock.
