Product Description

A classic SG with simple features and loads of vibe, just the way Wilco’s frontman likes it. The Gibson Jeff Tweedy Signature SG Electric Guitar is built in honor of Tweedy’s achievements in the broad spectrum from alternative country to experimental contemporary rock. This stunning rendition of the Gibson SG guitar features decorative ‘Lyre’ vibrato tailpiece cover and two Gibson BurstBucker 1 pickups.

Gibson Jeff Tweedy Signature SG Electric Guitar Features

  • Grade-A Mahogany body with high-gloss nitrocellulose finish
  • Mahogany neck with slim, rounded early '60s profile
  • Rosewood fingerboard with acrylic trapezoid inlays
  • Pair of BurstBucker 1 humbucking pickups in the neck and bridge positions
  • Orange Drop capacitors on the tone controls
  • Tune-o-matic bridge with Maestro-style vibrato tailpiece
  • Vintage-style TonePros with pearloid buttons and 14:1 tuning ratio
Body
The body of the Gibson Jeff Tweedy Signature SG is crafted from solid Grade-A mahogany in the classic asymmetrical double-horned deep double-cutaway design. A light and supremely resonant wood, mahogany gives this guitar outstanding tonal richness and depth, with plenty of clarity and sustain. Coupled with the SG’s characteristic beveled edge, the mahogany’s light weight also enhances playing comfort.

The Jeff Tweedy Signature SG’s quarter-sawn Grade-A mahogany neck is carved in a slim but rounded early ’60s profile, with a natural satin-finished back for a smooth playing feel. It is glued into the body with Gibson’s acclaimed deep set-neck joint, and topped with a fingerboard made from premium rosewood. Acrylic trapezoid fingerboard inlays, a mother-of-pearl Gibson headstock logo and holly inlay, and a cream pickguard all subtly enhance its style.

Pickups
To help this vintage-inspired SG sound as good as it looks, Gibson USA loads the Jeff Tweedy Signature SG guitar with a pair of BurstBucker 1 pickups with nickel covers, some of the most accurate PAF-styled humbuckers available today. Made with genuine unpolished Alnico II magnets, and wound with 42-AWG enamel-coated wire just like the originals, these pickups employ unequal turns of wire in each coil for that characteristic PAF bite and edge.

Electronics and Hardware
The pair is wired through the traditional four-knob Gibson control section, with upgraded Orange Drop caps on the tone pots. For added playing versatility, the Gibson Jeff Tweedy SG also carries an authentic Maestro-style vibrato tailpiece with decorative Lyre cover, partnered with a Tune-o-matic bridge, with vintage-style Tone Pros tuners.

Jeff Tweedy
As a co-founder of seminal alt-country band Uncle Tupelo, and the founder and leader of Wilco, one of the most adventurous alternative-minded bands working today, Jeff Tweedy has consistently displayed an uncanny knack for setting infectious tunes within adventurous and compelling musical contexts. In both his singing and his guitar playing, Tweedy has shunned the straight and narrow in favor of emotive attitude and gritty, trenchant tones, and established his presence as a modern legend in the process.

Quality
Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable?
Went over her with a fine tooth comb as soon as it arrived. I couldn't find any problems with the guitar, everything is top notch from the binding to the electronics and everything inbetween.
General
Your general opinion of this product.
Ordering a new instrument through the mail can be a difficult choice. Everyone wants to be able to get their hands on something before they purchase it. After I saw this model for the first time I knew I had to have one. Unable to find one to play in person I took the plunge and ordered online through AMS, sight unseen. And I couldn’t be happier! It has a list of features I’ve been waiting for on an SG at a price tag of under $2,000; the thin (yet “rounded”) 60’s neck, the Lyre vibrato, and a unique finish. Also, this is my first Gibson with Burstbuckers, I was excited about those as well. I have only had the guitar for a week now and I can already tell I will be playing her as much as possible. She has a different feel and sound than my Les Paul Classic and ’67 reissue Flying V. I really can’t tell you how happy I am with this purchase. AMS, you guys are the best.
Tone
Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin?
I can get a great variety of tones from the Burstbuckers through my Orange and Hi Watt. For a two humbucker guitar it sounds good when playing through a clean channel, obviously not Tele/Strat clean, but still sounds great. Push it/overdrive it and look out! She screams. Snappy attack if you play with highs all the way to muddy, "chunky" lows.
Finish
How did the stain or paint job look?
Drop dead gorgeous. The Blue Mist finish is fantastic, looking at pictures does it no justice.
