Gibson Announces Guitar Of The Week #21 :: SG-3 Fireburst

Gibson SG 3 Swamp AshIt’s Tuesday again, and Gibson has just announced the latest member of their limited run Guitar Of The Week series––this week’s instrument being a rather wicked looking customized version of the new SG-3 (first introduced at this year’s Winter NAMM.)

Simply titled the SG-3 Fireburst, the guitar sports many of the same features as the SG-3, including the old-school “chicken head” knob for controlling the guitar’s unique 6-position rotary pickup switch (bridge, bridge/middle, middle, middle/neck, neck, and bridge/neck,) but now customized with what looks to be a handsome Fireburst finish, and yet another trio of blade single-coil pickups.

The SG-3 Fireburst will also feature a mahogany neck (24 3/4“ scale length,) rosewood fretboard with 22 frets, dot inlays, traditional tune-o-matic bridge, stopbar tailpiece, Green Key tuning machines, and chrome hardware.

The guitar is being built in a single run of 400 units, and once it’s sold out, it’s gone.
