Up for sale, a 2021 Gibson SG Tribute, left-handed version in near mint condition and in perfect working order, complete with an upgraded black tolex hardshell case. A straight-ahead mean machine with a satin nitro lacquer Vintage Cherry Satin finish and 490 humbuckers, this SG has plenty of natural growl and cut, with tonewoods comprising a mahogany body, maple neck, and rosewood fretboard. Gibson's Alnico II 490 humbuckers are slightly overwound to deliver a modern edge that mellows back to a traditional PAF-style tone with a lighter touch or a slight rollback of the Volume knob. The guitar is featherweight at 6lbs 14oz, professionally setup here at Mike & Mike's Guitar Bar with 10-46 strings, low action, and accurate intonation.
The maple neck has a medium C-shaped profile carve with lightly rolled fretboard edges and generous shoulder in every register, measuring .840" deep at the 1st fret and .975" at the 12th. The medium jumbo frets are flawless on the dark rosewood fretboard, and the guitar plays easily up the 24 3/4" scale with a straight neck and responsive, optimally adjusted truss rod. The nut measures 1 11/16" in width, and the headstock features bolt bushing Gibson Deluxe tuners with aged keystone buttons.
The electronics all function as intended, the nickel plating is gleaming on the Nashville bridge and stopbar, and plastics include a quarter of perfect black bonnet knobs and the pickguard which retains its clear protective factory film and sticker. The Vintage Cherry Satin finish is clean as can be, with cosmetic wear limited to two small nicks on the body edge at the bass-side waist. The satin finish on the neck profile is flawless.
An upgraded black tolex hardshell case is included.
