Features
The SG Guitar Book by : Tony Bacon


To many vintage guitar fans; it seems inconceivable that Gibson dumped the Sunburst Les Paul in 1960 and; during the following year; introduced a completely new design; the one that we know now as the SG (“solid guitar”).

At the time; however; it made good business sense. Sales of the Les Paul were faltering; and Gibson decided to blow a breath of fresh air through its solidbody electric guitar line. The company described the result as an “ultra-thin; hand-contoured; double-cutaway body.” The modernistic amalgam of bevels and points and angles was a radical departure; and this new book tells the story of all the SG models that followed: the Junior; Special; Standard; Custom; and more.

There are interviews with and stories about Gibson personnel through the years; and all the major SG players; including Pete Townshend; Frank Zappa; Eric Clapton; Angus Young; George Harrison; Gary Rossington; Tony Iommi; and Derek Trucks.

In the tradition of Tony Bacon's bestselling series of guitar books; The SG Guitar Book is three great volumes in one package: a collection of drool-worthy pictures of the coolest guitars; a gripping story from the earliest prototypes to the latest exploits; and a detailed collector's database of every production SG model ever made.
