This is a crazy-great deal on a genuine U.S.-made Gibson!
Born in 1961, the Gibson SG is a rock legend. Seeing time in the hands of some of the world's most influential guitarists, the SG's "lean and mean" demeanor has cemented its place in the hearts of guitarists that like their tone a little on the rude side. The lightweight body was a welcome change of pace from the historically heavy Les Paul, but despite its lower weight, the SG was loaded with tone. And fast! The slimmer, faster neck of the SG caught the attention of shredders, which propelled the SG to new heights as a hard rock machine.
