What Reidys say...

"Much like its Les Paul sibling, this is an SG with a dash of magic. In fact, it bears a bigger relation to the Les Paul than ever, with a gorgeous AA maple top - something not often seen on the SG series. This classic combination should see a brighter attack and help the guitar resonate closer to what you’d find on a Les Paul. The body and neck is mahogany as is standard for an SG but updated with an ebony fingerboard and Asymetrical Slim Taper neck profile, giving you seamless access all the way up to fret 24. Loaded with two coil-tappable Alnico V Burstbucker Pro (Pro + in the bridge), this is a guitar that sounds every bit as good as it looks; think searing lead tones, chunky rhythms, and everything in between."

Richard Blenkinsop, Guitar Expert

The new Gibson SG Modern incorporates many contemporary updates that players
have embraced and it’s much more than a classic “solid guitar”; it’s a hybrid between
an SG and a Les Paul. Shaped and scarfed like a classic SG, the body is crafted with
a AA maple top and mahogany back, characteristic of a Les Paul. This combination
is renowned for its resonance and sustain. The genuine ebony, 24 fret compound
radius fingerboard and asymmetrical, slim taper neck allow fast and silky access to
the highest frets. A pair of calibrated BurstBucker Pro Alnico V humbuckers deliver
fire power and the push-pull controls allows you to switch between the Gibson
humbucker and the single coil P90 sounds, both of which have defined so many
genres of music across multiple generations since we invented them. Upscale
appointments include genuine mother of pearl inlays, Grover locking Rotomatic
tuners, and clear top hat knobs.
