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.
