Gibson SG Modern Electric Guitar

The Gibson SG Modern incorporates many contemporary updates that players have embraced and it’s much more than a classic “solid guitar”; it’s a hybrid between an SG and a Les Paul. Shaped and scarfed like a classic SG, the body is crafted with a AA maple top and mahogany back, characteristic of a Les Paul. This combination is renowned for its resonance and sustain. The genuine ebony, 24 fret compound radius fingerboard and asymmetrical, slim taper neck allow fast and silky access to the highest frets. A pair of calibrated BurstBucker Pro Alnico V humbuckers deliver fire power and the push-pull controls allows you to switch between the Gibson humbucker and the single coil P90 sounds, both of which have defined so many genres of music across multiple generations since we invented them. Upscale appointments include genuine mother of pearl inlays, Grover locking Rotomatic tuners, and clear top hat knobs.

zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
Overall: Gibson hit a home run wth the SG Modern, Maple top, 24 frets, mother of pearl inlay, Burstbucker pro in the neck, Burstbucker pro + in the bridge, coil tapping, this SG is the best playing and sounding SG I have ever played in my 45 years of playing, Ive played many SGs over the years but none like this one, the neck feels amazing, different than other slim tapper profile necks, has more beef. Finish looks awesome on the blueberry fade I purchased, love this guitar.

Overall: Love it. Plays great and stays in tune great tone. I have owned a few epiphone sg models, but this one blows them away. I put it in my cart like 20 times till my 4 year old hit place order. Will be his someday so let it ride. I would recommend this guitar.
