    Gibson SG Special '70s Tribute Electric Guitar, with Gig Bag Product Description

    Rock music might have developed through the 1960s, but it came of age in the 1970's, often played on great Gibson guitars of the era. To capture the look, feel and tone of the instruments that made massive music during a decade when rock was king, Gibson USA introduces the SG Studio '70s Tribute, part of a series that also includes a Firebird Studio and Les Paul Studio with complementary features. The Gibson SG Studio '70s Tribute offers all the quality and performance that has made the Studio range so popular with hard-gigging guitarists since its introduction in 1983, with crucial updates that ally it to many legendary Gibson guitars of the 1970s. Wrap your hand around the unique thin-to-thick neck carve of the SG Studio '70s tribute with a profile that starts out slim at the lower frets and becomes increasingly chunky as you slide toward the joint and you're rocketed straight back to an age of fierce, fast soloing. In the tone department, it carries a pair of new Dual Blade Alnico mini-humbuckers for great, vintage-edged tones with plenty of contemporary versatility. To top it off, the SG Studio '70s Tribute looks great in your choice of Vintage Sunburst, Cherry, Ebony Black or Silver Burst finish, all in grain-textured satin nitrocellulose lacquer.

    Body

    Like the most revered vintage SGs, the SG Studio '70s Tribute starts with a solid mahogany body. This classic tonewood offers superb depth and balance, and is extremely light for optimum playing comfort. Carved to the traditional asymmetrical double-cutaway shape, the SG also offers outstanding upper-fret access. Like many great Gibsons of the '70s, the neck is made from maple and carved to a profile unique to the era, which measures .800" deep at the 1st fret and increases to .963" at the 12th, with a volute behind the nut to both strengthen the headstock joint and enhance neck resonance. A chocolate-brown baked maple fingerboard carries traditional trapezoid inlays, and terminates in a PLEK-cut Corian nut with a width of 1-11/16". As with many Studio models, the SG Studio '70s Tribute keeps it all down to basics and saves you money by omitting fingerboard binding. Its look is complemented by a cream pickguard and pickup rings and gold knobs (Vintage Sunburst and Ebony Black) or black guard, rings and knobs (Silver Burst and Cherry), and traditional gold Gibson and Les Paul Model silkscreens on all but the Silver Burst, which has silver silkscreens.

    Pickups

    To help the SG Studio '70s Tribute rock with unparalleled character and articulation, Gibson USA loads it with a pair of Dual Blade Alnico mini-humbuckers. Entirely new pickups from Gibson USA, these units improve upon the best attributes of the former Mini Humbuckers seen in the Les Paul Deluxe in the '70s, and the different Firebird mini-humbuckers of the early 60s, in an efficient design that uses dual steel blades and an Alnico magnet for a vintage voice that still retains plenty of chime. These pickups are calibrated for balanced output between the neck and bridge positions, yielding everything from singing bluesy neck tones to crunchy and wailing leads, and are dressed in solid chrome covers. They are routed through the traditional four-knob and three-way switch wiring set up, and partnered with a 'Tune-o-matic' bridge and stopbar tailpiece for optimum sustain and precise intonation. A set of vintage-style TonePros tuners with pearloid keys rounds out the package. Each guitar includes a Gibson gigbag and owners manual, and is covered by Gibsons Limited Lifetime Warranty and 24/7/365 Customer Service.
