Gibson SG Special '70s Tribute Guitar

Capture the sounds of rock titans like Pete Townshend, Tony Iommi, and Angus Young with the Gibson SG Special '70s Tribute. This vintage-style SG features two versatile mini-humbuckers, an ultra-comfortable neck, and a full complement of old-school appointments. Built by the master craftsmen at Gibson USA, the SG '70s Tribute is an outstanding deal on a classic rock icon.

Versatile Mini-humbuckers and Vintage Gibson Tone

Gibson's modern dual blade alnico mini-humbuckers pack all the sizzle and punch that made the SG a go-to instrument for '70s rock. These versatile pickups provide massive tonal potential channeling everything from the rounded rock tones of a PAF humbucker to the shimmering high-end of a single-coil. With the '70s Tribute SG, the mahogany body and set neck provide an astounding degree of sustain through the guitar, and the use of a baked maple fretboard gives extra snap and clarity.

Classic SG Looks and Feel

Like any SG, the '70s Tribute starts with a foundation of a mahogany body with two sharp cutaways and sleek beveled edges. The unique SG body shape provides both unhindered upper-fret access and an exceptionally balanced feel. The neck features a thin-to-thick profile which suits lower fret chord progressions and upper-octave solos. Adding to the overall vintage flair are a chrome tune-o-matic bridge, block inlays on the baked maple fretboard, and a grain-textured satin nitrocellulose lacquer finish.

Features:

- Vintage SG design with dual cutaway and beveled edges
- Dual mini-humbucker pickups for searing rock tones
- Grain-textured satin nitrocellulose lacquer giving vintage look and feel
- Vintage-style hardware with chrome tune-o-matic bridge, stopbar tailpiece, and old-school tuners
- Baked maple fingerboard with trapezoid inlays
- Included Gibson gig bag

Customer Reviews
4 out of 5 (4 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Unique SG"
Sound: Great tones, bright, clean and still able to get plenty of fuzz. Feature: Love the volute (not as prminent as the one on my '73 LP custom) and large headstock. Small block inlays are nice too. Wish it had neck binding, but it is a Special. Also, the finish is nice but would have preferred glossy. I got the vintage sunburst model. Ease of Use: Gets lots of sustain. Quality: Excellent Gibson quality - will last forever if taken care of. Value: This is a great value at $849. I think it's value will hold or increase due to the uniqueness of this model. Manufacturer Support: Excellent support. Mine came without the truss rod tool and Gibson sent me one immediately. The Wow Factor: Great looking guitar. Overall: This is a great guitar. It's the third SG I've owned and I would rank it overall below my custom and above my standard.

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "First REAL!!! instrument."
Quality: The paint was well done, the guitar keeps in tune very well, and the fret and neck work was perfect. Overall: First of all I got to say this thing looks amazing, perfect paint job, perfect neck and fret work, the pickups incredible this on a line 6 can't imagine what it'll sound like through a tube amp. The neck pick up was smooth and sounded very close to full humbucker while the bridge pickup gave me searing leads. It may be excitement being my first Gibson but this guitar is amazing at this price point.
Style of Music: Rock, Heavy Metal, a little bit of Blues

What Our Customers Are Saying About zZounds "zZounds is the hands down most helpful and easy to deal with company that I've ever had the pleasure to do business with. They just get it done and done right. Only once have I ever had a product failure. Not only did they immediate set up paid shipping for the return and replacement, but he thought to ask me if I had a gig or anything coming up which needed their special accommodation. I hate to say it about our world these days, but there aren't many companies around who care about their customers this way. An A+ just doesn't do it justice. zZounds has a customer for life in me!"
