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 is the stripped back younger brother to the original SG's.
With the classic all Mahogany, super slim design, the SG Junior is the same tone machine we all know and love. The Slim Taper Mahogany neck is topped with a lush Rosewood 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. It sounds as smooth as it is gnarly.
