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 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.
