Why did it take this long? It just seems like such an obvious and perfect idea - The SGS3 takes the timeless elegance of the “Black Beauty” and applies it to the iconic SG body style to create a stunning homage to this early-’60s rocker. This is a fantastic guitar is perfect for anyone who loves the gold & black combination that made the Les Paul Black Beauty such an iconic instrument.

The classic SG body is crafted from solid mahogany, with asymmetrical pointed horns and a beveled edge for comfort, and looks absolutely killer in Ebony nitro with 5-ply black pickguard and black Top-Hat knobs.

Gold-plated hardware—including a vintage-style Sideways Vibrola updated for improved performance—completes the Custom look, while three of Gibson’s popular ’57 Classic humbuckers ensure unparalleled tone. The glued-in mahogany neck has a SlimTaper profile for that fast, slick playing feel that rockers have come to know and love, with a bound one-piece rosewood fingerboard with acrylic trapezoid inlays. Protect it in a Vintage Brown hardshell case from gig to gig, and you’re ready to rock out in grand style.

Main features:

  • Pickups: two ’57 classic humbuckers in the neck and middle position, with a hotter 57 classic plus in the bridge.
  • Body: select mahogany, a time-tested tonewood, lends superb depth and resonance.
  • Hardware: a tune-o-matic bridge and improved sideways vibrola, all gold plated.
  • Controls: three independent volume controls with master tone and with switchcraft™ three-way switch.
  • Neck: solid glued-in mahogany neck with one-piece rosewood fingerboard, inlaid with acrylic trapezoids.
  • Tuners: gold-plated vintage-style tuners with pearloid buttons.
