Named after the influential blues-rock player dubbed 'The Chosen One', the latest offering from Gibson USA's Artist Series is set to be a limited run three pickup design with a distinct and vibrant yellow nitrocellulose finish.
Loaded with three single coil P90 pickups – P90SR neck pickup, P-90SM middle pickup, P90ST and with an aluminium stop tailpiece with a traditional ABR bridge - the Gary Clark Jr. Signature SG weilds a mahogany body and neck coupled with a rosewood fretboard, a slim taper neck design and 24 frets - rather than the more traditional 22 on a Standard SG.
Interestingly. the Gary Clark Jr. Signature SG comes with three Volume knobs and only one Tone control - but with its extra P90 pickup, should provide some useful and unique extra tonal options. Touted as a limited run, the guitar follows Epiphone's Gary Clark Jr. ‘Blak & Blu’ Casino - the signature instrument also sharing the namesake of the Grammy Award-winning artist.
Gibson are distributed in Australia through AMI.
