Gibson Announces Guitar Of The Week #10 :: SG Standard With 3 Single Coil Pickups

Sg Standard SinglecoilsI have to admit that Gibson caught me totally off guard with this one… the guitar maker has just released specs on this week’s installation of their Guitar Of The Week series, and it’s a unique instrument to be sure––introducing the SG Standard with 3 Single Coil Pickups!

While most of the guitar’s specs will be right in line with Gibson’s traditional SG Standard, including a mahogany body, mahogany neck with SG profile (24 3/4″ scale length,) rosewood fretboard with 22 frets, and of course a stopbar tailpiece and tune-o-matic bridge, this limited edition SG will sport some not so standard features as well.

Unique modifications are expected to include a natural satin finish, antiqued trapezoid inlays, antiqued fretboard binding, a trio of single-coil blade pickups for producing “a twang that’s bright and clear,” and a thoroughly retro 6-position rotary dial pickup switch.

The SG Standard with 3 Single Coil Pickups will be built in Gibson’s Nashville factory, in a limited run of just 400 instruments, and the price will include a hard reptile case with white plush interior.
