Gibson USA  introduce a new Limited Edition 2015 SGS3 3 pickup SG complete with vintage style sideways Vibrola. The guitar has been finished in a gloss ebony lacquer and comes fitted with gold hardware and feature Gibson's '57 Classic and '57 Classic Pro pickups.

(PRESS RELEASE): 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.

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.


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 tones 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.
