The Gibson Custom SG Custom Electric Guitar in Ebony takes the fast-playing, no nonsense attitude of the classic model, and moves things up a notch. Adhering to the classic double-horn cutaway that has made this instantly recognisable model a favourite amongst guitarists for decades, the Gibson Custom Shop team have included premium appointments to ensure this is more than just a guitar, but a thing of pure unadulterated beauty.
Crafted using solid mahogany, the body is a lightweight yet tonally powerful beast that plays like a dream. The thinline shape has curves in all the right places to make it a joy for all players to wield. The deep double-cutaways afford comfortable access to the neck in its entirety, so that you can roam freely during performances. As the name suggest, the body has been treated to an ebony paint job, which is protected by a resilient coating of nitrocellulose.
Sturdy neck design
Fitted to the body is a single-piece mahogany neck, which is shaped to the slim C-shape profile for a lightning fast playing feel. Married to the neck is a richlite fingerboard to provide peerless durability throughout the guitar's lifetime. With 22 frets to explore, there are pearl custom block position inlays to guide your way. Rolled binding over the frets ensures seamless transitions along the entire length of the neck.
At the top of the neck you'll find the corian nut, which works tirelessly alongside the Grover kidney tuning machines to uphold tuning integrity and string tension. The body is home to a Tune-O-Matic bridge and stop bar tailpiece, which anchor and support each string to optimise intonation and sustain to allow the beating heart of the SG Custom to consistently pump of the jams.
Fitted in the neck and bridge position respectively are the 490R and 498T pickups, which channel the classic vibe of Gibson's coveted PAF pickups. With an emphasis on mid-range bite, these awesome humbuckers are perfect for laying down some thick and meaty tones with plenty of aggression. Control comes in the form of independent volume and tone knobs for each pickup, as well as a Switchcraft toggle switch.
The Gibson Custom SG Custom Electric Guitar in Ebony is supplied with a Gibson Custom Shop hardshell case, so that you can transport your gorgeous guitar in safety and style.
