Gibson SG Supreme 2016 Limited Run in Ocean Blue

Description

The Gibson SG Supreme is a guitar that has come and gone over the last few years and for 2016 it is back for a limited time run. The simple but stunning SG gets a bit of a facelift with this premium version of the much loved stripped back rock machine.

Stunning Design

Gone is the flat mahogany top and here comes something a bit more luxurious. Featuring a carved flame maple top on a lightweight mahogany body this guitar features a bit of extra bite to it that really lets your solos shine. The neck is still made out of mahogany but the fretboard is now a dark 1 piece composite design that is made to be as smooth as humanly possible. This helps with speed and accuracy in lead lines so you will never be caught out.

Fresh Hot Humbuckers

What would a stunning new SG be without some fresh new pickups. This guitar features a set of Rhythm Pro and Lead Pro pickups that both have a vintage tone but with hot output. You can really dial in a wide range of different tones from classic rock to modern metal just using the in built volume and tone controls.

Quality Components

As part of the Supreme line Gibson have spared no expense in making sure this guitar sounds and feels amazing. With an interesting new bridge made from Zamak to make sure it lasts a long time and the amazing Grover Locking Kidney tuners to keep you in tune. You get much more than just that though as this guitar also features aluminium strap buttons and mother of pearl inlays for a premium look.

Limited Edition

This guitar will only be around for a short time in 2016 so if you are looking to get your hands on a real premium feeling SG you need to check this out.
