gibson les paul standard

The Gibson SG electric guitar ended up being incredibly popular through its numerous years of construction. The design of the electric guitar with its Gothic looking horns as well as the flat top would not be to everyone’s taste, and this was undoubtedly the case with a particular Mr Les Paul. That being said, the Gibson SG became highly regarded in many styles of music on account of its biting, practical sound.

Listed below are 10 great points about the Gibson SG:

1. The guitar was unveiled by Gibson in 1961 and has continued to be built ever since.

2. The guitar came about on account of the reduction in the sales of the Les Paul shape. The Les Paul design received an all mahogany body and a flat top and additionally the crucial double cutaway. This legendary Les Paul was ultimately christened the SG model as a result of Les Paul himself not liking the current appearance of the guitar named after him.

3. The SG on the whole features an all mahogany body and neck. The neck is a more shallow construction than that of a Les Paul standard.

4. The guitar in addition displayed two humbucker guitar pickups and a Tune-o-matic bridge design, although a few specialist models would have utilised a tremolo system.

5. A larger ‘bat winged’ style pick guard was revealed in 1967 to substitute the primary smaller version.

6. The SG attained a reputation for being neck heavy because of its thin mahogany body, which actually was much less heavy than that of a Les Paul guitar.

7. Eminent SG players include: Tony Iommi of Black Sabbath, Eric Clapton and Jimi Hendrix. Jimi Hendrix’s cream three pickup SG currently resides in Orlando’s Hard Rock Cafe.

8. The scale of a mahogany neck is 24.75″ and is connected to the body at the 19th fret. The double cutaway allowed easier access to the high notes.

9. Guitarist Tony Iommi of Black Sabbath promotes this model of guitar and the models that bear his name have religious crosses inlaid into the Rosewood fretboard instead of the traditional block inlays.

10. A double-neck variety of this model of electric guitar was additionally produced by Gibson utilising six string and twelve string necks. Led Zeppelin’s Jimmy Page notably played this double-neck version of the guitar when performing live at different stages throughout his illustrious career.

So there you have it, 10 fascinating facts about this legendary guitar. Not all guitars acquire legendary status but the Gibson SG model surely does. It’s been part of music for many years and no doubt will continue to attract guitarists of all genres for some years to come.
