The 2013 SG ™70s Tribute captures the look, feel, and tone of a heavy sounding evolution of this legendary double-cutaway solidbody, the SG of the 1970s. Like many SGs of the era of heavy rock, the SG ™70s Tribute carries a pair of high-output humbucking pickups for unparalleled overdrive tones along with the characteristic ™70s neck profile with volute. Gibson' most acclaimed hardware set ensures smooth playability and offers precise tuning and intonation.
The SG ™70s Tribute looks great in a choice of colors, all in Vintage Gloss nitrocellulose lacquer.
Built in the image of the world-beating SG Standards of the 1970s, the SG ™70s Tribute starts with a foundation of solid mahogany, a tonewood with a long tradition at Gibson. A solid mahogany body is crafted in the distinctive, thin asymmetrical dual-cutaway style, with iconic pointed œhorns and beveled edges to enhance playing comfort. A solid mahogany neck is glued into the body in Gibson' time-tested tradition, and carved to a characteristic medium ™70s profile that measures .810 at the 1st fret and .930 at the 12th, with period-correct volute to strengthen the back-angled headstock. It is topped with a genuine rosewood fingerboard that carries 24 medium-jumbo frets to maximize the upper afforded by the SG' body style, and traditional trapezoid inlays.
In keeping with the stripped-down ethos of this powerful performer, both body and ™board remain unbound, and there' no pickguard to obscure the finish. A PLEK-cut nut made from black Corian„¢ subtly complements the black witch-hat knobs with silver inserts and black pickup rings. The headstock is silkscreened with gold Gibson and holly logos.
The SG ™70s Tribute takes its firepower from a pair of Gibson' mighty Dirty Fingers„¢ humbucking pickups, a legendary component of ™70s rock and among the two hottest pickups that Gibson has ever designed. These scorching humbuckers include powerful ceramic magnets and over-wound coils for a sizzling, sustainful sound that nevertheless remains clear and articulate. The traditional wiring complement of an independent volume and tone control per pickup plus a three-way toggle selector switch allows a broad range of sonic variations.
To anchor it all down, Gibson USA loads in a Tune-o-Matic bridge and Stopbar tailpiece with a set of genuine Grover„¢ kidney button tuners, a hardware set that partners up for solid sustain and precision tuning. Put it all together, and the SG ™70s Tribute presents the perfect celebration of the SG' evolution into the age of heavy rock, wrapping it all into a great guitar that brings the look, feel, and sound of a high-output humbucker-loaded SG to the hands of players of today.
Each guitar includes a black Gibson gig bag, owner' manual and truss-rod wrench.
