Aggressive Tone Meets Savage '70s SG Style!If you were pushing the envelope of aggressive rock and metal back in the 1970s, there was one electric guitar you absolutely had to have in your collection, and that was a Gibson SG. In fact, it would have been an SG a lot like this Gibson SG Tribute '70s model. Loaded with Gibson's nasty, gritty, distortion-loving Dirty Fingers humbuckers, the SG Tribute '70s features the exact same tone you'd get from a real 1970s model. Just plug it into your favorite high-gain tube amp from whatever side of the Atlantic you feel the most comfortable with, and you'll instantly hear the characteristically aggressive tone that defines at leas one entire type of modern rock or metal.
Actually, this tone wasn't just great for the 1970s. About 20 years after Gibson had laid their Dirty Fingers pickups to rest, a new wave of pop punk and nu-metal artists brought them back from the grave, making them a popular choice for modern styles of aggressive music as well. Couple that with an extremely slender neck that lets you speed up your left-hand technique, and you're all set to push new musical boundaries of your own, with this Gibson SG Tribute '70s electric guitar.
