When the SG debuted back in '61 it was considered pretty radical for the time, with its thin body and no nonsense styling, it clearly focussed on raw power and playability. Quickly becoming a fan favourite with players like Pete Townshend, the SG found itself a permanent member of the Gibson roster. The Gibson SG Junior '60s is the stripped back younger brother to the original SG's.
We love it when companies cater well for our left handed friends and this is definitely a leftie worth checking out!
With the classic all Mahogany, super slim design, the SG Junior is the same tone machine we all know and love. The Thin Mahogany neck is topped with a lush Baked Maple fingerboard to complete the tonewood dream team. Unlike normal all Mahogany guitars, the SG is super light thanks to its thinline profile and simplistic design.
With a single Gibson P-90 it offers more bite, a sweeter single coil tone and a more versatile overall sound. Perfect for players that want to have greater control over their tone, the Gibson P-90 is a hot, raw but perfectly rounded pickup choice. Wound with 42-AWG wire and employing a pair of genuine Alnico V bar magnets the SG Junior '60s sounds as smooth as it is gnarly.
