Gibson Custom

Description

Nothing says rock and roll like the right combination of simplicity and attitude. Maybe that’s why the ’63 Gibson SG Special was the axe of choice for so many classic rockers. A lightweight solid body, and fast mahogany neck with rosewood fingerboard combined with a pair of punchy, warm P90 soapbar single-coil pickups for enough growl to back off a grizzly. This Gibson Custom Shop ’63 SG Special Reissue captures all the details, right down to the classic “Lightning Bar” compensated wraparound bridge. Includes deluxe hardshell case and Certificate of Authenticity.
