The SG body style was first released in 1961 as a replacement for the original Les Paul, and the new design remained iconic long after the single-cutaway Les Paul returned to the fold later in the decade. The SG '70s Tribute captures the look, feel, and tone of a heavy sounding evolution of this legendary double-cutaway solidbody, the SG of the 1970s. Like many SGs of the era of heavy rock, the SG '70s Tribute carries a pair of high-output humbucking pickups for unparalleled overdrive tones along with the characteristic '70s neck profile with volute. Gibson's most acclaimed hardware set ensures smooth playability and offers precise tuning and intonation. The SG '70s Tribute looks great in a Vintage Gloss nitrocellulose lacquer finish.

Built in the image of the world-beating SG Standards of the 1970s, the SG '70s Tribute starts with a foundation of solid mahogany, a tonewood with a long tradition at Gibson. A solid mahogany body is crafted in the distinctive, thin asymmetrical dual-cutaway style, with iconic pointed "horns" and beveled edges to enhance playing comfort. A solid mahogany neck is glued into the body in Gibson's time-tested tradition, and carved to a characteristic medium '70s profile that measures .810" at the 1st fret and .930" at the 12th, with period-correct volute to strengthen the back-angled headstock. It is topped with a genuine rosewood fingerboard that carries 24 medium-jumbo frets to maximize the upper afforded by the SG's body style, and traditional trapezoid inlays. In keeping with the stripped-down ethos of this powerful performer, both body and 'board remain unbound, and there's no pickguard to obscure the finish. A PLEK-cut nut made from black Corian subtly complements the black witch-hat knobs with silver inserts and black pickup rings. The headstock is silkscreened with gold Gibson and holly logos.

The SG '70s Tribute takes its firepower from a pair of Gibson's mighty Dirty Fingers humbucking pickups, a legendary component of '70s rock and among the two hottest pickups that Gibson has ever designed. These scorching humbuckers include powerful ceramic magnets and over-wound coils for a sizzling, sustainful sound that nevertheless remains clear and articulate. The traditional wiring complement of an independent volume and tone control per pickup plus a three-way toggle selector switch allows a broad range of sonic variations. To anchor it all down, Gibson USA loads in a Tune-o-Matic bridge and Stopbar tailpiece with a Min-ETune tuning system, a hardware set that partners up for solid sustain and precision tuning. Put it all together, and the SG '70s Tribute presents the perfect celebration of the SG’s evolution into the age of heavy rock, wrapping it all into a great guitar that brings the look, feel, and sound of a high-output humbucker-loaded SG to the hands of players of today. Includes gig bag.

For this price it's amazing


Back in May I picked up a lefty Les Paul "Future Tribute" in Wine Red. In fact I wrote one of the reviews. I basically loved everything about it except for the robot tuners. The same thing applies to this guitar too. The tuners just don't work all that great. I really want to love them too. It's a great idea and I DO like being able to easily go back and forth between tunings while practicing. This guitar was made in December of 2012 so the tuners are the older ones but the company won't upgrade them. You have to pay $95 to get the newer control module and for that price I might as well take these off and buy regular Grover tuners. Now for the good stuff; 24 frets and "Dirty Fingers" pickups. I have a Dirty Fingers bridge pickup in my old 1986 vintage Flying V and I love that sound for metal. If I had to chose though, I would have chosen a more milder pickup for the neck position for all those 80's power ballads. This guitar is more comfortable to play while just practicing than my Les Paul especially near my elbow of my pick hand. Look at any well worn Les Paul and they're always work there. Also, the color (antique sunburst) is beautiful. It's finished in a satin which makes for a very comfortable neck. Even the "witch hat" knobs are nice. They function really well and looks 70's for sure. However Gibson still doesn't put lefty pots in their guitars. Really though, at this price? Snag one up before they're gone!
