The Limited Run SG Carved Top AAA Ocean Blue Burst Electric Guitar captures the essence of a classic Gibson design, and takes it one step further. Like the original SG Standard in 1961, the SG Carved Top Ocean Blue Burst sets a fresh precedent for style, function and design. Its highly figured maple top rises unexpectedly from the traditional dual-horned SG mahogany body shape, and is given a gloss Ocean Blue Burst nitrocellulose finish to bring out the full depth of its stunning grain. It is without question the finest wood ever applied to the SG in its 49-year history. The maple top takes it above and beyond its simple aesthetic beauty, by providing the sonic quality and sustain of Gibson's legendary Les Paul Standard.
The guitar's tone is further enhanced by a pair of Burstbucker Pro humbucking pickups, which employ Alnico V magnets for a little extra sting and punch, and feature wax-potted coils to combat potential squeal and microphony. Each pickup also features two coils with unmatched windings to retain a little extra sonic edge in their enhanced vintage performance.
Other appointments include the SG's standard 24-3/4" scale length mahogany neck with two extra frets; a rosewood fingerboard with figured acrylic trapezoid inlays; Grover kidney-shaped tuners; and Gibson's traditional Tune-o-matic bridge and stopbar tailpiece. The SG Carved Top Ocean Blue Burst is limited to just 350 guitars, and each one comes with a special Limited Run Series certificate of authenticity and a black hardshell case with white interior and silkscreened Gibson USA logo.

I could use buz words and phases all night long and not describe the awesomeness of this guitar. As of right now, it is still unavailable, yes. BUT this guitar is EXACTLY (except the finish) like the SG Diablo custom that was guitar of the month back in '08. This was my first Gibson guitar. I own a Strat and a Tele. I had really been looking at getting a Gibson at some point. LPs are nice, but just as common as Strats, everyone has one. So i looked to SG's. I played several and had every intention of buying a 61 Reissue. But one day I walke into GC and saw this hanging way up behind the counter. It really jumped out at me. The beveled body looked awesome with a candy apple red finish and gold hardware. I got a REAL steal on it to. I was almost sure I would buy it before even playing it! But I jacked in to a Vox AC30 CC and almost fell outa my seat! This thing has stellar tone. I can dial in anything from the clean jingle jangle of the Beatles or Robby Kreiger, to dirty blues of Angus Young, and Jimmy Page, and with the help of a pedal, even some face kicking Metallica. Very sturdy, versitile, absolutly stunning, and packs a solid punch! It has quick action, and plays like silk! With this baby strapped to you you WILL be seen, heard and remembered!
