The SGJ14 delivers contemporary SG Standard-style tone and playability at an unprecedented price.
The raw and ready SGJ14 derives its timeless Les Paul-style tone from Gibson’s new ’61 Zebra humbucking pickups, crafted in the image of the hallowed original PAF humbuckers, but updated for the power and versatility required by today’s music. Further 2014 120th Anniversary additions include new larger no-slip strap buttons, black Max Grip Speed Knobs, a GraphTech nut, long-life proprietary coated guitar strings, cryogenic treated fret wire for longer life and corrosion resistance, a full PLEK setup, and a 120th Anniversary logo inlay at the 12th fret. Put it all together with the legendary Gibson playability, and the new SGJ14 is ready to rock, at a truly breathtaking price.
Body and neck The SGJ14 is crafted in the image of the original SG Standard, with an asymmetrical double-cutaway body for excellent upper-fret access. It’s made from solid mahogany, with a glued-in maple neck with a ‘50s profile. The rosewood fingerboard is topped with a GraphTech™ nut, and carries 24 cryogenic-treated frets for long life and corrosion resistance, with dot inlays and a commemorative 120th Anniversary inlay at the 12th fret.
Pickups and electronics The guitar carries a pair of Gibson’s new ’61 Zebra humbucking pickups in the neck and bridge position. These pickups are built with the power to rock, excelling in heavy crunch and wailing lead tones, yet the clean up beautifully for mellower moments, adapting themselves to your every need. They are wired through the traditional complement of independent volume and tone controls, and a three-way selector switch.
Hardware Following the stripped-down ethos of the SGJ14, the guitar carries no pickguard and the minimum of ready-to-rock hardware. A satin chrome Tune-o-matic bridge and stopbar tailpiece anchor it all down for outstanding resonance and sustain, while retro tulip-button tuners retain a vintage look, and enlarged strap buttons (new for 2014) keep your guitar secure throughout the set.
The SGJ14 comes protected in a Gibson gig bag, includes a truss-rod wrench and owner’s manual, and is covered by a Limited Lifetime Warranty and Gibson’s 24/7/365 Customer Service.
