Like the most revered vintage SGs, the SG Studio '70s Tribute starts with a solid mahogany body. This classic tonewood offers superb depth and balance, and is extremely light for optimum playing comfort. Carved to the traditional asymmetrical double-cutaway shape, the SG also offers outstanding upper-fret access. Like many great Gibsons of the '70s, the neck is made from maple and carved to a profile unique to the era, which measures .800 inches deep at the 1st fret and increases to .963 inches at the 12th, with a volute behind the nut to both strengthen the headstock joint and enhance neck resonance.
Baked Maple Fingerboard
A chocolate-brown baked maple fingerboard carries traditional trapezoid inlays, and terminates in a PLEK-cut Corian™ nut with a width of 1-11/16”. As with many Studio models, the SG Studio ’70s Tribute keeps it all down to basics—and saves you money—by omitting fingerboard binding.
Gibson USA Dual Blade Alnico Mini Humbucker Pickups
To help the SG Studio ’70s Tribute rock with unparalleled character and articulation, Gibson USA loads it with a pair of Dual Blade Alnico Mini Humbuckers. Entirely new pickups from Gibson USA, these units improve upon the best attributes of the former Mini Humbuckers seen in the Les Paul Deluxe in the ’70s, and the different Firebird Mini Humbuckers of the early ’60s, in an efficient design that uses dual steel blades and an Alnico magnet for a vintage voice that still retains plenty of chime.
These pickups are calibrated for balanced output between the neck and bridge positions, yielding everything from singing bluesy neck tones to crunchy and wailing leads, and are dressed in solid chrome covers. They are routed through the traditional four-knob and three-way switch wiring set up, and partnered with a Tune-o-matic bridge and stopbar tailpiece for optimum sustain and precise intonation. A set of vintage-style TonePros™ tuners with pearloid keys rounds out the package.
Each guitar includes a Gibson gigbag and owner’s manual, and is covered by Gibson’s Limited Lifetime Warranty and 24/7/365 Customer Service.
