Inspired by classic Gibson designs, the SG Classic Worn takes an iconic design, hits it with some vintage vibe, and includes modern appointments for rock-solid performance. The distinctive SG body shape is highlighted by a stunning “worn” open grain finish that is as visually rich as the guitar is sonically rich. Just like the original SGs, the Classic Worn features an all-mahogany body that infuses the guitar’s tone with depth and warmth. The supremely comfortable SlimTaper mahogany neck is capped in Indian laurel, and faux-ivory tuning knobs punctuate the SG Classic Worn’s old-school look. This stunner is stocked with a set of P-90 PRO single-coil pickups. Based on original Gibson designs, the P-90 PROs are detailed, responsive, and full of attitude. Lay your hands on this sharp-dressed, rock ‘n’ roll tone machine.
First introduced in the early 1950s, Gibson’s legendary P90 single coil pickup produced a raw powerful tone that helped define the blues and rock and roll in their formative years. Today, the P90’s traditional combination of high output and brilliant tone is still considered a favorite among many top musicians. Known by such familiar nicknames as the “Soapbar” and the “Cobalt,” the P90 still cuts through any type of music, all while displaying amazing tonal sensitivity for everything from blues and rock to mellow jazz riffs. It’s perfect as a vintage replacement, and features vintage, braided two-conductor wiring. It’s also fully wax potted to eliminate any chance of unwanted microphonic feedback.
