The Gibson SG Modern is a revolutionary electric guitar that fuses classic SG styling with contemporary appointments sought after by today's players. Its solid mahogany body provides the resonant tone and sustain the SG is known for, while the figured maple top adds striking looks and warmth. The genuine ebony fretboard with 24 frets and a compound radius offers a familiar feel and fluid playability. BurstBucker Pro humbuckers powered by Alnico V magnets deliver the output and clarity required by modern music. Push-pull volume controls unlock single-coil tones from the humbuckers at the flip of a switch.

Sleek Neck Profile for Comfort and Speed

The SG Modern's SlimTaper mahogany neck has an asymmetrical profile for comfort and a satin finish for speed. Its compound radius ebony fretboard has a flatter radius at the neck joint for easy chording and a rounder radius at the body end for bend-friendly soloing. Plek processing ensures an immaculate fret job for buzz-free playing up and down the neck.

Burstbucker Pros: The Power of Alnico V

The SG Modern comes loaded with Burstbucker Pro humbuckers, Gibson's premier pickup for delivering Alnico V power with clarity and balance. The bridge pickup has slightly higher output for grit and sustain, while the neck pickup is voiced for warmth and richness. Push-pull volume controls let you tap bright single-coil tones from each humbucker—ideal for genres from rock and blues to jazz and country.

Tune-O-Matic Bridge for Accuracy and Sustain

The SG Modern features a Nashville Tune-O-Matic bridge with stopbar tailpiece, which transfers string vibration efficiently to the mahogany body. The Tune-O-Matic's fully adjustable saddles let you dial in perfect intonation, while the stopbar's firm coupling to the body enhances sustain and resonance.

Premium Appointments for an Upscale Experience

High-end components like Grover locking Rotomatic tuners, acrylic top-hat knobs and mother-of-pearl trapezoid inlays complete the SG Modern. Its hardshell case provides a home as stylish as the instrument itself. Experience the Gibson SG Modern, a fusion of tradition and innovation today.
