Now Gibson USA gives the hallowed SG all the respect it deserves with the SG Diablo Premium Plus. This SG is dressed in a carved Grade-AAA maple top with luscious flame beneath a selection of burst and transparent finishes, bringing the undisputed beauty of the finest Les Paul ‘Bursts to the archetypal modern styling of this double-horned beast.

With a pair of Gibson’s finest humbucking pickups, high-performance hardware from TonePros and Grover, a full 24-frets for optimum lead playing (two more than the standard SG fingerboard) – it’s one of the fiercest sounding and looking SGs ever to come screaming down the pike.

The cornerstone of the SG Diablo Premium Plus’s thick, meaty tone still begins with the traditional light, resonant mahogany that gave birth to the first SGs in 1961, but Gibson USA cranks the style up several notches by adding a highly figured Grade-AAA maple top to the package
