Reverb Estimated Used Price Range

  • $970$1,365

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.  In 2013, Gibson updated the model to use the smaller pickguard similar, '60s slim taper neck profile, and a pair of '57 humbuckers similar to the '61 Reissue SG.
