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 Mini Rotomatic tuners, and clear top hat knobs.

The day i got the guitar, i had a hard time putting it down, imany complain about the burstbucker pickups . saying they are harsh sounding..but for hard rock , or heavy blues, they are perfect. The sound packs a serious punch. The push/ pull knobs are brilliant, you have the choice of a humbucker , or a p-90 tone at your finger tips. This guitar is actually lighter then a standard sg. But plays more like a les paul.Making this guitar a hybrid. If you play rock. or blues, i highly suggest this guitar. Jazz players may want to avoid.
For hard rock and blues, the bright , punchy tone is perfect. I listen to all kinds of music , but i enjoy playing rock , blues, and a bit of metal. So this guitar fits me like a glove.
The push / pull pots are great. Keep them down and youll have a classic humbucker sound, lift the knobs, and a good single coil sound . very very versatile.
Ease of Use
Once you get the hang of the push / pull pots..the sky is the limit. And without the les paul weight.
Well...yes this guitar comes with a hardshell case. And yes its worth the $$
