Introducing the SG Baritone from Gibson USA, a guitar primed to make a major impact on the lower register. The SG Baritone plays just like a standard electric guitar, but injects some serious rumble into your six-string riffing thanks to being tuned down two and a half steps to B-E-A-D-F#-B.
Popular with rock and metal players as an extension of “down tuning,” the baritone has also long been a favorite of country and Americana styles, and likewise makes a great alternative in the blues and jazz arsenal.
With a fully proportional SG look and feel, thanks to the oversized body scaled to fit the elongated neck and 27″ scale, the SG Baritone is instantly familiar, yet something entirely different.
