Gibson & Epiphone SG Guitars
The Gibson SG (Solid Guitar) is a popular electric guitar model that was introduced by Gibson in 1961. It's known for its distinctive double-cutaway design, thin body, and pointed horns.
We have included both Gibson and Epiphone SG guitars in this collection to cater to all players' budgets. Epiphone is a brand owned by Gibson. It was acquired by Gibson in the 1950s and is positioned as a more affordable line, offering a range of instruments that cater to various budgets.

Rosewood or ebony fingerboard: The SG typically comes with a rosewood or ebony fingerboard, depending on the specific model.
Humbucking pickups: Many SG models are equipped with humbucking pickups, which are known for their noise reduction and powerful, warm tone.
Tune-O-Matic bridge and stop tailpiece: The SG usually has a Tune-O-Matic bridge and stop tailpiece for precise intonation and sustain.
Lightweight design: The SG is lighter than some other Gibson models, making it a favourite among players who prefer a more comfortable and manoeuvrable guitar.
