A Signature SG for the Ages -- Just The Way Derek Likes It

Derek Trucks has made his rounds working with a long line of celebrated musicians including the Allman Brothers Band, Eric Clapton, and Buddy Guy. Now you can harness his tone and style with his 2014 Derek Trucks Signature Gibson SG. Trucks' guitar of choice includes a pair of crunchy '57 Classic bridge and neck humbuckers housed in an SG-shaped mahogany body. Your set-in mahogany neck is cut in a comfortable '60s slim profile, and your two pairs of tone and volume knobs and three-setting pickup switch produce a range of variable and dynamic tones. To top it off, this must-have axe boasts a decorative faux-Lyre tailpiece just like Derek's own.

Get a closer look at the Gibson 2014 Derek Trucks Signature SG in this video:


All-Mahogany Body and Neck for All-Solid Tone

The SG body shape is instantly recognizable with its near-ubiquity over the decades of rock's history. Its curvy cut and streamlined feel provide a comfortable fit against your body, and Trucks' choice of using mahogany for the neck as well as the body gets you a nice dark resonance that's consistent and fluid. The slim profile cut means you'll have less surface area to cover as your hand curls this neck's contour in a looser feel.

Ageless PAF Tone of '57 Classic Humbuckers

If you're looking for that vintage crunchy sound from the early '60s, then these bad boys are for you. Gibson's '57 Classic humbuckers are as close to the original '61 model as you can get. Your bridge breaks up your tone in a bright and gritty crunch that you've heard so often over the decades, and your neck humbucker smoothes your sound over a bit with a slightly fatter, slightly darker tone. Put together, these two pickups pack a vintage punch that'll shake you all night long.

Dual Tone and Volume Controls

Derek Trucks' Signature SG comes with independent tone and volume controls for each pickup. Aside from giving you more tonal dynamic range, you can roll your volume all the way back for one of your humbuckers and toggle your pickup selector blade to create an attention-stealing strobe effect. More controls give you more freedom to play around and experiment.

Features:

- Mahogany body in SG shape
- Mahogany set-in neck in SG slim profile
- Bound rosewood fingerboard with 22 frets
- '57 Classic bridge and neck humbuckers
- Two tone knobs and two volume knobs
- Three-setting pickup selector switch
- Chrome Tune-o-Matic bridge and stopbar
- Decorative Lyre tailpiece
- Hardshell case included

2014 has been marked as the year of Gibson's 120th anniversary, and Derek Trucks' choice of using 2014 as a year to release his Signature SG offers one more reason why Gibson continues to stand up to its legendary name time and time again. See what you can get out of this axe-of-choice when you shoulder its all-rock force.

Product Description

Over the past two decades, Derek Trucks has risen from child prodigy to being one of the most accomplished and respected guitarists working today--whether as a solo sensation, a member of the Allman Brothers Band, or performing with legends like Buddy Guy and Eric Clapton. Derek's sublime tone and unique playing style are unforgettable once you hear them, and his instrument of choice is a Gibson SG Standard.

To celebrate their 120th Anniversary, Gibson USA is extremely proud to include the Derek Trucks SG among the 2014 New Model Year lineup. Made in the image of the great original SG/LPs of the early '60s, the 2014 Derek Trucks SG is equipped just the way Derek likes it--from tonewoods, to pickups, to finish and hardware--and comes to you at an unbeatable price for a hand-made-in-America signature guitar.

The Derek Trucks SG derives its timeless tone from two of Gibson's popular '57 Classic pickups, crafted in the image of the hallowed original PAF humbuckers for rich, warm clean tones and bountiful crunch when cranked up. Its mahogany neck has an authentic early '60s slim profile and a bound rosewood fingerboard with trapezoid inlays, and Derek's preferred decorative Lyre tailpiece cover joins the classic Gibson Tune-o-matic bridge and stopbar tailpiece. Wrapped in a new vintage red stain finish and topped with Derek Trucks's signature on the truss-rod cover, it's a stunning tribute to one of today's most acclaimed players.

Body and Neck

The Derek Trucks SG is crafted in the style of the original SG Standard of the early '60s, with an asymmetrical double-cutaway body for excellent upper-fret access. It's made from solid mahogany, with a glued-in mahogany neck featuring a slim '60s profile. The rosewood fingerboard is topped with a Corian(TM) nut and 22 frets, with trapezoid inlays.

Pickups and Electronics

The guitar carries a pair of Gibson's extremely popular 57 Classic pickups in the neck and bridge position. These pickups are built with genuine Alnico magnets in the image of the legendary PAFs, but updated for the requirements of today's high-volume rock. From warm, rich rhythm to wailing lead tones, they do it all. They're wired through the traditional complement of independent volume and tone controls, and a three-way selector switch.

Hardware

A chrome Tune-o-matic bridge and stopbar tailpiece anchor it all down for outstanding resonance and sustain, with a decorative faux-Lyre tailpiece as seen on Derek's own guitars. The Derek Trucks SG carries no pickguard, but features cream fingerboard binding, black pickup rings, black top-hat knobs with silver inserts, a black switch ring, and black/white truss-rod cover with Derek's signature to round out the package.

Case and Coverage

The Derek Trucks SG comes protected in a black Gibson hardshell case, includes a truss-rod wrench and owner's manual, and is backed by a Limited Lifetime Warranty and Gibson's 24/7/365 Customer Service.
