I’ve got a Les Paul as well but I’ve always gravitated towards SGs because of the sound and playability. They really let you get higher on the neck. (...) I guess I kinda got started with a 1972... I don’t know what model it was but there was a lot of weirdness going on in the late 60s and early 70s with the SGs. And I picked up a 72 that had been snapped in half and had been repaired badly."more
his version of the SG Standard was produced only for two years and was launched on the market in 1971 with the name of SG Deluxe, in order to emphasize a parallelism with the Les Paul line. However it was an atypical design, which kept the same woods as the Standard - and the same twin-humbucker circuitry as well (both pickups had the embossed logo on their covers). All the electronics were installed on a large semi-circular plastic plate. The guitar you see here is a very fine example of the model: as you can see, the hardware includes a modern Tune-O-Matic "Nashville" bridge and Grover tuners with the double brand Grover/Gibson. Gibson brand appears also on the Bigsby-style vibrato tailpiece. The body is entirely made of mahogany, just like the three-piece neck, in the tradition of the SG line.
