Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Introduced in 1961, the Gibson SG is Gibson’s biggest-selling guitar of all time, and is synonymous with Angus Young (AC/DC lead guitarist), Tony Iommi (Black Sabbath) and Robby Krieger (The Doors). The SG was originally produced as a more easily manufactured ‘mass-production’ version of the Les Paul, sales of which were diminishing at the time, but the solid-bodied SG (‘Solid Guitar’) soon became a revered instrument in its own right. Superbly illustrated and designed, this manual includes case studies of key models – everything from a vintage SG ‘Les Paul’ to a 2011 SG 50th Anniversary model – but also gives appropriate attention to today’s affordable Epiphone versions, Specials, Juniors and Melody Makers.

Synopsis:

The Haynes guitar manual series is now well-established, with titles covering Fender Stratocaster, Fender Telecaster, Gibson Les Paul, Fender Bass, Acoustic Guitar and the forthcoming Electric Guitar Manual. Gibson launched this iconic electric guitar in 1960 as a more easily manufactured ‘Henry Ford’ version of the commercially failing Les Paul. The guitar has remained in continuous production from 1961 to the present. Coverage will follow the established format for the previous guitar manuals.
