Gibson SG Zoot Suit (Limited Edition)

Gibson SG Zoot Suit

The new Gibson Zoot Suit SG guitar is the ultimate for stage style and playability. The word “Zoot” is jazz slang meaning extravagant style to which this guitar encapsulates. At first glance, one might think that the unique coloration of the Zoot Suit guitar is simply a clever paint scheme. Incredibly though, there is no paint used on the guitar.

The Zoot Suit
The body of the Zoot Suit features a brand new body built with multiple birch wood laminate pieces (each one approximately .075” thick), each dyed with a different color then compressed and bonded together to form one solid block of wood. No paint is used. Each body is given two coats of satin nitrocellulose lacquer.

By reorienting the dyed laminates opposite from the body, you can view the pin-stripe color pattern through relief designs that have been machined out of the head veneers, which also allows maximum strength to the overall structure of the neck.

Featuring a brand new body built with multiple birch wood laminate, each laminate piece is dyed with a different color then compressed and bonded together to form one solid block of wood. Two coats of satin lacquer are then applied to provide a smooth finish and also help protect the body from any damage.

Unique
Standard sg features. The features are less in the mechanics thaqnin the body which is unique and gorgeous. Plays well,good action and tone.Im sure it will outlive me. It is a tad heavy if they could fix that with some routing like they did on the les paul.

Gibson Nighthawk 09 (USA 2009 Limited Run Series)

Gibson Nighthawk Limited Run Electric Guitar

The Nighthawk
This lusty guitar, which resembles its larger Les Paul cousin but with more defined curves, has become a cult favorite since it was discontinued in 1999, after only six years in production. The original Nighthawk was conceived of in response to the demand for a more modern silhouette and a multitude of tone options.

Today’s version is still all about a guitarist keeping his options open. With two volume controls, a master tone knob and two heavy-duty pickups, guitarists can experiment with endless sounds. If tone alone weren’t enough to carry this instrument, Gibson luthiers have labored to create an exquisite-looking guitar

It features a gorgeous non-arched AAA maple top on a bound, thin-contoured, single cutaway body and a 22-fret bound rosewood neck on a set mahogany neck. The Limited Run Nighthawk ’09 is loaded with two of Gibson’s most outstanding pickups to produce a rare combination of tones. Widely known as Gibson’s first successful single-coil pickup, the lean and mean P-90 (neck) offers a stellar combination of high output and biting treble response.
