2021 Gibson Kirk Douglas Signature SG Custom Inverness Green, Near-Mint w/ Case, Tags


+ shipping

Up for sale, a 2021 Gibson “Captain” Kirk Douglas signature SG Custom in near-mint, 100% original condition and in perfect working order, complete with the original hardshell case, hangtags, and case candy. This discontinued SG is the signature model of “Captain” Kirk Douglas, guitarist for the Roots since 2002 (including throughout the group’s stint as Jimmy Fallon’s house band). This versatile SG features solid mahogany construction, a gloss Inverness Green lacquer finish, three Burstbucker PAF humbuckers , and a bevy of tonal sculpting options.

The mahogany construction and bound rosewood fretboard result in an acoustic profile with natural midrange growl and foundational warmth. The Burstbucker PAF humbuckers have traditional Alnico II magnet construction, coupled to a notably flexible control layout, with a three-way (Bridge, Bridge+Neck, Neck) pickup selector and a dedicated Blend knob for the middle humbucker. All three pickups have push/pull coil taps for single coil chime and cut, and the Burstbucker PAFs have a distinct voicing in each pickup position. The bridge pickup is a Burstbucker #3, hotly wound while still fitting within the PAF paradigm at 8.7k ohms. The middle pickup, a Burstbucker #2, is medium output and a design well-suited to any pickup position, while the Burstbucker #1 at the neck is the most conservatively wound, yielding both detail and a woody sweetness. Weighing 8lbs 5oz, this SG has been professionally setup here at Mike & Mike’s Guitar Bar with 10-46 strings, low action, and spot-on intonation.
