Gibson SG Modern, Blueberry Fade
Gibson SG Modern Overview by GAK.
A new year, a new decade and a fantastic new Gibson Guitars product lineup that is sure to have something for everyone. After a very successful relaunch in 2019, the Gibson USA range has drawn inspiration from it's roots while offering the very best in modern luthiery technques to deliver a true modern classic. Adding to the Gibson Original series you now have the Gibson Les Paul Special in Vintage Cherry, Gibson Les Paul Junior in Ebony and the Gibson ES-345 in Sixties Cherry and Vintage Sunburst to name a few. Other notable additions are the Gibson '70s Flying V and '70s Explorer which are both available in Classic White, the Gibson Les Paul Special Tribute Humbucker available in four colours and last but certainly not least the brand new Gibson Slash Les Paul Standard available in Appetite Amber, November Burst, Vermillion Burst and Anaconda Burst.
The new 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.
