It turned 60 this year and looks as good as ever: the Gibson SG. The first version of the legendary model came on the market in 1961 and initially continued to bear the name Les Paul on the headstock. This very instrument was reissued again this year as part of Gibson Custom's 60th Anniversary series. And what can we say: Here the guys and gals from Nashville have once again outdone themselves! First of all, the guitar feels great in the hand, because the neck does not have the ultra-thin slim-taper profile of many later versions. Nice grip and still slinky! And the sound of the Custombucker is simply the Oberhammer. As you'd expect from an SG, it's a bit leaner and more present than a Les Paul. Clean you get a lot of transparency and no mud. When distorted, the party really gets started: distorted riffs blow at you with a bite and an attack that makes you not want to stop. Nevertheless, there is enough warmth at any time to fire off singing lead sounds as well. The guitar never sounds shrill or too thin, just perfectly balanced. We strongly advise you to get this instrument as a player guitar! By the way, the Sideways Vibrola is currently only acting as a visual treat, as the previous owner fixed it. But with the included toolkit it can be made ready for use again in no time. We can offer you this Hammer-SG in mint condition.
