Product Description

Modeled after incredible Gibson's from an unforgettable era, the Gibson SG Studio 70s Tribute Electric Guitar captures the look, feel and tone of the SGs of the 70s. Offering all the quality and performance the Gibson SG Studio 70s Tribute Electric Guitar offers a thin-to-thick neck carve that starts out slim at the lower frets and becomes increasingly chunky as you slide toward the joint and incredible vintage tone from a pair of Dual Blade Alnico Mini Humbuckers for great, vintage-edged tones with plenty of contemporary versatility.

  • Baked Maple Fingerboard
  • Gibson USA Dual Blade Alnico Mini Humbuckers
  • Gibson's Limited Lifetime Warranty
  • Includes Gibson Padded Gig Bag
Mahogany Body
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.

Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable?
The is a nice guitar that seems to be solidly built. Set up very well from the factory with perfect action and intonation. I love the feel of this guitar.
General
Your general opinion of this product.
Overall I love this guitar, even though the finish on mine did have some blemishes. I don't mind so much as it gives the guitar charachter and uniquenss and I am more interested in playability and tone.....even still, I couldn't give my particualar guitar 5 stars because of this. The stain on the body was wiped against the grain and left to dry like that. You can look at it in the light and it is a definate flaw that I am surprised made it through quality control. Also, my guitar didn't come with the truss rod tool that was listed on the Gibson instruction sheet......nevertheless, I still really love my SG. (also, I called Gibson and they are sending me one in the mail)
Tone
Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin?
The tone is smooth and buttery. The neck pickup has a darker mellow tone and the bridge pickup is bright and airy. Great tones all around and very versatile sounding. I am very happy with the tone. Also, the baked maple neck is very nice.
Finish
How did the stain or paint job look?
The stain job could have been alot better, but the feel is excellent.
