The Gibson SG sets the standard and shattered all perceptions of what a guitar "could be" when it was first introduced in 1961.
So what sets this '96 "limited edition" Gibson SG apart from its predecessors?
In 1996 two classic symbols of the American-Spirit were brought together by Gibson's Custom Shop & GM's Corvette Division to pay homage to the '63 Chevy 'Vette.
The Gibson "Corvette" was offered as a limited-edition model, only 100 were produced. This guitar is stamped #33.
The Sting Ray SG body was carved to simulate the legendary '63 Vette split rear window. It came stock with inlaid windows, a chrome-plated pick-up cover (replicating the '63 Chevy valve-cover) and inlaid Corvette logos. True to its namesake, authentic 1963 "Tuxedo Black" paint, from the GM plant, finishes this "hot-rod".
Gibson's SG Model is one of the best-selling guitars of all time.
