NEW for 2013… the SG Deluxe, a stunningly upscale SG from Gibson USA. Rather than let dressy Les Pauls have all the fun, the SG Deluxe adds a Grade-AA figured maple top to a versatile feature set that includes three humbucking pickups, Bigsby tailpiece, bound headstock, and bound 24-fret rosewood fingerboard with Deluxe split-diamond inlays, along with locking Grover tuners.
The SG Deluxe takes its firepower from a trio of 57 Classic humbucking pickups, some of the most popular recreations of vintage PAF humbuckers available today. These great pickups use genuine Alnico II bar magnets and are wound with 42-AWG enamel-coated wire, for the characteristic blend of warmth and creaminess that made original PAFs legendary.
Gibson SG Deluxe features:
- Solid Mahogany body with Grade-AA figured Maple top
- Mahogany neck with fast, slim ’60s profile
- Bound 24-fret rosewood fingerboard with split diamond inlays
- Three ’57 Classic humbucking pickups in the neck, middle and bridge positions
- Bigsby vibrato tailpiece with Grover locking tuners
- Colors: Lime Burst, Cobalt Fade, Orange Burst, and Red Fade
