Introduced in 1961, the Gibson SG is Gibson s biggest-selling guitar of all time, and is synonymous with Angus Young (AC/DC lead guitarist), Tony Iommi (Black Sabbath) and Robby Krieger (The Doors). The SG was originally produced as a more easily manufactured mass-production version of the Les Paul, sales of which were diminishing at the time, but the solid-bodied SG (Solid Guitar) soon became a revered instrument in its own right.

Superbly illustrated and designed, this manual includes case studies of key models everything from a vintage SG Les Paul to a 2011 SG 50th Anniversary model but also gives appropriate attention to today s affordable Epiphone versions, Specials, Juniors and Melody Makers. Buying a Gibson SG, used and new options, pitfalls, authenticity matters, getting the right SG for the job. Pre-gig checks, tuning, stageside repairs. Routine maintenance and servicing. Set-ups and careful customising . Dimensions and weights, buying spare parts, model identification. Under the hood with celebrity users: how the pros set up their SGs and related hardware. Case studies of a range of SGs, including SG Standard, Epiphone SG, SG Les Paul Special 1959-type, Tony Iommi signature Jaydee SG, Pete Townshend P90 SG, Gibson Les Paul Junior Double Cut and Jimmy Page SG Double-neck re-issue.
