Product Description

Roots guitarist, ‘Captain’ Kirk Douglas, is a long time Gibson enthusiast. This Limited Edition Gibson Custom Captain Kirk Douglas SG is a credit to their long relationship. Featuring a trio of ’57 Classic humbuckers outfitted with push-pull tone pots for single coil tones and additional dialing in of the middle pickup with a stealth blender ring in the TogPot selector switch. The long gold ‘Lyre’ tailpiece adds to this guitar’s vintage aesthetic and features ‘Captain’ and dual rose engraving.

  • Solid Grade A Mahogany Body
  • Slim, Super-Fast Mahogany Neck
  • Bound Grade-A Rosewood Fingerboard
  • Coil Tap-able  bridge and neck pickups for single coil tones
  • Tog Pot Selector Switch with Blend Ring for adding the right amount of middle pickup

Body and Neck
The Kirk Douglas SG is made from solid Grade-A mahogany in the iconic double-horned style of the original ’60s SG. Its thin dimensions and beveled edges are key ingredients in its legendary playing comfort, as is its slim, super-fast mahogany neck, with depths of 0.800 inch at the 1st fret and 0.900 inch at the 12th. Its Grade-A rosewood fingerboard carries stunning acrylic pearloid block markers, and is topped with a large Custom headstock with multi-ply binding and split-diamond inlay.

Pickups and Electronics
Three of Gibson’s popular ’57 Classics provide a usefully contemporary take on vintage PAF humbucker tone, with added versatility thanks to coil-splitting switching on the tone controls’ push-pull pots. In addition, the TogPot selector switch carries a blender pot within its ring, to dial in the middle pickup level to any position, as desired. All this clever wiring trickery gives the Kirk Douglas SG unseen sonic depths, while hiding within the traditional four-knob plus three-way switch control array.

Hardware
The hardware, all gold, includes high-quality Grover keystone tuners, Tune-o-matic bridge, and a vibrola for added versatility, with stunning 'Lyre' cover etched with Kirk’s nickname ‘Captain’ and dual roses. The guitar carries the larger white mid-’60s pickguard, with multi-ply headstock binding, single-ply fingerboard binding, and a traditional ‘bell’ truss-rod cover.

Case and Coverage
The Kirk Douglas SG comes protected in a black Gibson USA hardshell case stenciled with Kirk’s signature, and includes a truss-rod wrench and owner’s manual. It is covered by a Limited Lifetime Warranty and Gibson’s 24/7/365 Customer Service.
