Gibson SG Standard  2011 Bullion Gold Sam Ash Limited Edition

Sorry, this listing is no longer available.

Sold!

Up for sale, a 2011 Gibson SG Standard in an extremely limited Bullion Gold finish! This guitar was limited to 400 instruments worldwide and sold exclusively through Sam Ash, making this one of the most desirable and uncommon modern SGs. This guitar is in excellent condition aside from a chip in the paint (pictured). The Bullion Gold nitro lacquer finish is stunning and unique look, with a texture and rich appearance that makes it stand out amongst  your more standard Gibson finishes. In fact the nitro has already started to seep into the pores of the mahogany, and as the guitar ages it will become even more resonant and acoustically present.

The quarter sawn mahogany neck has a very comfortable profile with a C shape that has just the right amount of chunk while still feeling manageable and easy to fret. The action is low and slinky with frets that show minor wear. Gibson refers to the fretwire as "medium jumbo" and while the guitar does have prominent, rounded crowns on the frets, the width is more akin to a vintage Gibson fret (narrower overall than what would widely be considered 'jumbo'), and a more intuitive, comfortable feel for those used to a vintage Gibson instrument. Gibson's traditional 1 11/16" nut width is ideal for chording and fingerstyle playing, and this SG is simply a joy to play. The face of the headstock is polished to a mirror finish, with inlayed pearloid crown and Gibson logo, also sporting a set of Gibson Deluxe tuners with flawless gold plating and aged tulip buttons. Curiously, the original marketing for this guitar states that the instrument comes with a baked maple fretboard (common for a brief period after the US Government seized Gibson's illegally attained rosewood), although this particular SG *does* have a rosewood board, and a particularly stripey gorgeous piece of rosewood too!

Like the original SGs of the '60s and all of the classic variations since, the Gibson USA SG Standard Sam Ash Exclusive has a body crafted from solid mahogany in the asymmetrical “double-horned” deep double-cutaway design. A light and supremely resonant wood, mahogany gives this guitar outstanding tonal richness and depth, with plenty of clarity and sustain. Coupled with the SG's characteristic beveled edge—a big part of this model's distinctive styling—the mahogany's light weight also enhances playing comfort.

To load it all with certified classic tone, Gibson USA equips the SG Standard Sam Ash Exclusive with a pair of its most popular humbucking pickups. The 490R in the neck position is made with an Alnico II magnet and wound to vintage specs for plenty of warm vocal tones with impressive clarity. The 498T in the bridge position has an Alnico V magnet for more punch, and a few more turns of coil wire for a hotter performance overall, giving you everything from meaty crunch to searing lead tones. Your tone is anchored down by the classic pairing of a Tune-o-matic bridge and stopbar tailpiece.
