SG Custom Meets Black Beauty


Gibson has introduced the SGS3 which they say takes the timeless elegance of the "Black Beauty" and applies it to the iconic SG body style to create a stunning homage to this early-'60s rocker.

A spokesperson told us, "The classic SG body is crafted from solid mahogany, with asymmetrical pointed horns and a beveled edge for comfort, and looks absolutely killer in Ebony nitro with 5-ply black pickguard and black Top-Hat knobs. Gold-plated hardware--including a vintage-style Sideways Vibrola updated for improved performance--completes the Custom look, while three of Gibson's popular '57 Classic humbuckers ensure unparalleled tone. The glued-in mahogany neck has a SlimTaper profile for that fast, slick playing feel that rockers have come to know and love, with a bound one-piece rosewood fingerboard with acrylic trapezoid inlays. Protect it in a Vintage Brown hardshell case from gig to gig, and you're ready to rock out in grand style."
