Overview

In 1961 Gibson president Ted McCarty set out to create a better Les Paul by lightening it up and increasing access to the upper frets. The result was this radical new, highly carved design--the Solid Guitar, shortened to SG. BurstBucker humbuckers supply historically-accurate "Patent Applied For" tone. With a solid mahogany body and neck,ABR1 bridge and vintage tulip tuners, this is the real McCoy.

Back to the sixties

By JMI

from France

This guitar is very attractive, provides a great juicy and warm sound ; On another hand, it is very easy to play thanks to the plek process that has been applied to the fingerboard and the facility to access to the treble. I also have an Les paul R9 and i can say that it belongs to the Les Paul family.

Mind-Blowing Sound!!

By GibSG61

from Nebraska

When I walked into my local guitar center the other day, I saw this faded cherry SG custom. It didn't look glossy and beautiful like the 61 reissue next to it looked like. But I tried it out, and the sound was amazing! It has a very, very powerful sound, mirroring a Les Paul Goldtop. It was as clear as the SG Supreme or 61 reissue, but it had a stronger and a bit darker sound. The neck was very thin and tapered, and felt very comfortable. Very good deal for a custom (at my guitar center it was only $1900). Every guitarist should go out and try this, it's practically a lighter version of a Les Paul Goldtop.
