Gibson Limited Edition SG Standard

The SGS3 takes the timeless elegance of the "Black Beauty" and applies it to the iconic SG body style to create a stunning homage to this early-'60s rocker. The classic SG body is crafted from solid mahogany, with asymmetrical pointed horns and a beveled edge for comfort, and looks absolutely killer in Ebony nitro with 5-ply black pickguard and black Top-Hat knobs. Gold-plated hardware -- including a vintage-style Sideways Vibrola updated for improved performance -- completes the Custom look, while three of Gibson's popular '57 Classic humbuckers ensure unparalleled tone. The glued-in mahogany neck has a SlimTaper profile for that fast, slick playing feel that rockers have come to know and love, with a bound one-piece rosewood fingerboard with acrylic trapezoid inlays. Protect it in a Vintage Brown hardshell case from gig to gig, and you're ready to rock out in grand style.

Pickups

Two '57 Classic humbuckers in the neck and middle position, with a hotter 57 Classic Plus in the bridge.

Body

Select mahogany, a time-tested tonewood, lends superb depth and resonance.

Hardware

A Tune-o-matic bridge and improved Sideways Vibrola, all gold plated.

Controls

Three independent volume controls with master tone and with Switchcraft three-way switch.

Neck

Solid glued-in mahogany neck with one-piece rosewood fingerboard, inlaid with acrylic trapezoids.

Tuners

Gold-plated vintage-style tuners with pearloid buttons.

zZounds Expert Review
This limited-run Gibson SG Standard is a sharp and refined guitar with a few great changes. The first is its gold-plated hardware and the addition of a third humbucker pickup for even more tone options. The Gibson 57 Classic pickups are perfect for warm vintage-style tone, and the addition of a 57 Classic Plus pickup in the bridge position allows you to dial in much hotter output sounds. Crank your amps up and enjoy the clarity and definition of these pickups -- they can handle anything you throw at them with ease. This guitar is a hard rock monster, but the tones it produces are so varied that you can even dial in glassy cleans, and some really tight and round notes on the neck pickup that are perfect for soloing. Overall, I really liked how this guitar responded, and it looks unique -- and downright regal!

4 out of 5 (7 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Wonderful, Beautiful Tone and Elegance"
Overall: The guitar plays perfectly, it sounds wonderful. The build quality is exceptional, a great nitrocellulose finish and a wonderful array of gold plated parts. It is more beautiful in person than online here. The vibrola tremolo is great for subtle surf twang but if you try to get crazy with it the guitar goes out of tune easily. It isn't made for that anyway really. If you want that then get a Floyd Rose tremolo. The feel of the neck is perfect and is close to the 61 Gibson SG style I own as well. Look, if you love SGs then this guitar is for you because the tone is amazing. It has that perfect classic rock tone from the 57 Classic Plus bridge pickup and with the 57 Classic in the neck and middle you have the best jazz sounds and tones ever. Think vintage Les Paul guitar style playing and some great jazz as well. Blues, good lord .... it sings the blues. The sustain is amazing. The note or chord will hold and ring for so long. I am absolutely in love with this purchase. For the guitar itself, the weight is heavier than a regular SG of course given the hardware but it also balances the guitar out as you don;t have that neck SG dive from the body being so light on a normal SG here with this one. It feels like you're holding something special. zZounds got here in perfect shape also.
Style of Music: Rock, blues, jazz, funk.

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "The king of the 2015 Sg's"
Overall: I ordered the product a few weeks ago and received it two days later. I had been searching for another SG besides my 2016 standard and 2003 model. I had 1 major requirement, it had to have a Vibrola or Bigsby. Now most reviews of the sideways Vibrola state that they have major tuning issues, but so far, i have not had any. Playing for a minimum of an hour a day the guitar has stayed in tune and kept correct intonation with only minor adjustments to it and the action right out of the box. Aside from this there is one major thing to notice about the guitar, it has the third Humbucker, which at first, is an adjustment if you are usually used to picking with only the two. Sound wise, it is much deeper than both my other SGs. I notice that with my Marshall amp, i can really dial in the famous Eric Clapton "Woman Tone" he used on Disraeli Gears for songs like Sunshine of your love. Overall the guitar has been excellent. Plus there are only ~200 made!
