The body of the limited run Gibson SG Carved Top Guitar in trans white features a stunning AAA-grade book matched maple top that sits atop the standard SG mahogany body. The beautiful combination infuses a new personality into this Gibson SG, and brings with it all the nuances that supply the guitar's incredible tonal character. The combination of a maple cap and solid mahogany body gives this rare SG a touch more of the snap, sizzle and sustain that typically comes from a Gibson Les Paul Standard.
The neck of the Gibson SG Carved Top guitar is constructed from a solid piece of mahogany, which delivers the various preferences that most players demand: strong, rigid and light. Gibson's traditional rounded profile is hand-carved into the neck, delivering a comfortable, super-fast feel to one of the quickest necks in the industry. The angled, classical-style peg head, when matched with a larger tenon joint, offers enhanced sustain.
The fingerboard on the Gibson guitar is constructed from the finest ebony on the planet. The resilience of this dense and durable wood makes the fingerboard extremely balanced and stable. Ebony is always rich in tonal response, and gives each chord and note unparalleled clarity and bite. The fingerboard has 22 traditional "medium/jumbo" frets and the 12-inch radius of the fingerboard provides smooth note bending capabilities and eliminates "dead" or "choked out" notes.
Like all of Gibson's Burstbucker pickups, the Burstbucker Pros have asymmetrical coils”true to the original PAFs”which supply a more open sound. The Burstbucker Pro Neck is wound slightly less than the original PAFs, while the Burstbucker Pro Bridge is slightly overwound for increased output. The Burstbucker Pro pickups are also wax potted to allow loud volume pressures with minimal feedback. The Burstbucker Pro pickups offer slightly higher output, which allows preamps to be driven a little harder to achieve a more natural breakup.
Grover Rotomatic with kidney tuners are staples of Gibson guitars. With a gear ratio of 14:1, the Rotomatics deliver precision tuning in a durable housing that provides maximum protection for the gear and string post.
The Gibson Tune-O-Matic bridge has set a standard for simplicity and functionality that has never been bettered. It provides a firm seating for the strings, allowing the player to adjust and fine-tune the intonation and string height in a matter of minutes. Every Tune-O-Matic bridge is combined with a separate stopbar tailpiece, which also enhances the connection between the strings and the body, resulting in excellent tone and sustain.
