The Limited Run 50th Anniversary Derek Trucks SG Electric Guitar is made to exacting specs of Dereks main stage guitar, the body of the Derek Trucks SG is typical of the thin SG bodies from the mid 1960s, made from solid mahogany complete with traditional beveled edges and the distinct dual sharp cutaway horns that allow complete access to the guitars full 22-fret rosewood fingerboard. The body is then finished in Heritage Cherry, which is very similar to the finish of his beloved 61 SG reissue. The hardware features a Tune-O-Matic bridge paired with a stopbar tailpiece, along with a chrome Lyre tailpiece.
This SG is outfitted with a pair of ˜57 Classic humbucking pickups made with genuine Alnico II magnets, and wound with 42-AWG enamel-coated wire just like the originals, but are wax potted to combat microphonic squeal for high-volume playing.
The guitars quartersawn mahogany neck is carved in a slim but rounded 1960s profile that measures .800 at the 1st fret and .895 at the 12th. It is glued into the body with Gibsons deep set-neck joint and topped with a Grade-A rosewood fingerboard with 22 medium-jumbo frets and vintage cream binding. A Gibson hardshell case is included.
