Gibson SG Carved Top – Autumn Burst (Gibson USA 2009 Limited Run Series)

SG Carved Top - Autumn Burst

Limited Carved Top in Autumn Burst
For the first time on an SG, a hand-carved, highly-figured maple top rises unexpectedly from the traditional – yet still radical – dual-horned mahogany body. A clash of style and attitude! A high-gloss Autumn Burst nitro finish brings out the full depth of the maple’s stunning grain. It also delivers the sonic quality and sustain of Gibson’s legendary Les Pauls. The setting a fresh precedent for style, function and design just like the original SG model did in 1960.

The famed craftsmen at Gibson USA have applied a gently hand-carved arch to an AAA-grade maple cap atop a solid mahogany body, and given it a gloss Autumn Burst nitrocellulose finish to bring out the full depth of its stunning grain.

The SG Carved Top Autumn Burst is also an extremely playable instrument. It has Gibson’s famously fast and comfortable neck, with two extra frets for enhanced upper-neck lead work — a total of 24 jumbo frets — and the traditional 24-3/4″ scale length and 1-11/16″ neck width at the nut.

The SG Carved Top Autumn Burst has all of its predecessor’s performance appeal, and then some. Whether you’re a player looking for a distinctive new stage guitar, or a collector seeking a rare new acquisition, this is a highly desirable release.

Gibson The Holy-Explorer (USA 2009 Limited Run Series)

Gibson The Holy Explorer

The first of the 2009 Limited Run Series guitars from Gibson USA
The neck on the Holy Explorer retains the traditional characteristics of the original Explorer neck – 24¾-inch scale, 22 frets, rosewood fingerboard and figured acrylic dot inlays. The Holy Explorer also sports a single volume control perfectly positioned for swells, and two of humbucker pickups.

The Holy Explorer features include six in-line mini Grover tuners, which deliver smooth tuning action and accuracy, Gibson’s traditional stop bar tailpiece and Tune-o-matic bridge, and a customized Limited Run Series certificate of authenticity and Gibson USA hardshell case with a white silkscreened logo. The new Holy Explorer is limited to just 350 guitars.

There’s just a single volume control, positioned for easy pinky-finger volume swells, and a three-way pickup selector — nothing superfluous to get in the way of you and your tone.

The Holy Explorer also retains its ancestor’s distinctive “drooping” headstock with six-in-line tuners, which in this case are Grover Mini tuners. The guitar is also fitted with a 1-11/16″-wide Corian nut and Gibson’s traditional stop bar tailpiece and Tune-o-matic bridge, which keeps everything firmly anchored and ready to wail.
