Overview

The Gibson SG was introduced in 1961 as a complete replacement for the Les Paul. The new design was thought to be a more modern solidbody guitar, with sleek beveled edges and two sharp cutaways. By late 1963, the Les Paul moniker was dropped, and the SG (or Solid Guitar) became an entirely separate model. The SG has remained in steady production ever since earning a place as one of the truly classic solidbody guitars. The SG Baritone features a longer 27" scale length, a pair of uncovered humbuckers, and an inlay-free ebony fretboard.

    Between the 27" scale length, larger body, and super hot pickups, the SG Baritone is perfect for loud, distorted music. Increased body size allows low notes resonante far better than a regular detuned guitar and intonation is much less of a headache. The 500T in the bridge is probably the hottest …
