The SG Story

When the SG or "Solid Guitar" was introduced in 1961 as a replacement for the Les Paul, it was called the "fretless wonder" for its low frets and fast action. The twin horn cutaway design was like nothing on the market and its light but balanced weight and P-90 pickups made it the perfect guitar for stage and studio. Not only was it lighter than a Les Paul but the SG’s P-90 pickups had more tone and clarity than other single coil pickups yet still had all the bite and overtones of a humbucker. Some of the SG’s biggest fans include The Who’s Pete Townshend, George Harrison, Eric Clapton, Tony Iommi, Paul Weller, AC/DC’s Angus Young, Frank Zappa, and Derek Trucks of the Allman Brothers Band.
