The Gibson SG Junior Electric Guitar in Vintage Cherry has all the vintage-inspired looks and features associated with the late 60s style models that are highly sought after by many a guitar player. Although designed with the classics in mind this is a thoroughly modern guitar with a raft of premium appointments that will suit a variety of players, whether you're a classic rock aficionado or a modern hard rocker.
Mahogany 'Horns' Style Body
Those classic double cutaway 'horns' are well known the world over. From Zappa to Young to Iommi the SG has been synonymous with an array of professional players since it's inception and those striking looks have changed little since then. The SG Junior retains the styling of the original featuring deeply sculpted body scarfing and with an all Mahogany body construction, you get a warmth of tone and bags of sustain that's characteristic of the SG style guitar. Known for being a versatile workhorse the SG is comfortable with an assortment of styles, so whether you're playing metal, hard rock or even jazz this guitar can handle it all.
Slim Taper Neck
Joined to the double cutaway body is a Slim Taper profile Mahogany neck. Working in conjunction with the body the neck allows bends to ring out, fast legato to come with ease and riffing aplenty. The Rosewood fretboard is smooth and comfortable with 22 frets to ensure you hit every note when playing. The Acrylic Dot inlays ensure you never lose your way on even the darkest of stages.
Powerful P-90 Dog Ear
The Gibson SG Junior features a single P-90 Dog Ear pickup for simplicity. With a single Volume and a single Tone knob, you spend less time setting up and more time rocking out. The P-90 is well known for its bright and transparent tone that gives you a crisp sound but still retains a thick tonality, making it great for a wide variety of applications. They can do mellow warmth just as well as brutal bite and have been played by guitarists from all genres, so whether you play jazz, blues, rockabilly, punk, or even hard rock and metal, the P90 has got you covered.
The Gibson SG Junior has a Wraparound bridge so you can be assured of pinpoint intonation. Working in conjunction with the Vintage Deluxe tuning machines this combination ensures rock-solid tuning stability that will put up with hard picking and big string bends. The electronics are all hand wired and feature orange drop capacitors for the highest quality sound.
The Gibson SG Junior Electric Guitar in Vintage Cherry was initially released in the 60s as an alternative to the SG Standard that would still retain the high-quality construction but come at a cheaper price. Becoming a force in it's own right this guitar is simplicity and function defined, with all the rock aesthetic and vintage tone embraced by guitarists for almost 60 years.
