Tony Bacon: The Sg Guitar Book

Reference | Books about Music
Subtitle 50 Years of Gibson's Stylish Solid Guitar
Publisher Backbeat Books
Series Book

To many vintage Guitar fans, it seems inconceivable that Gibson dumped the Sunburst Les Paul in 1960 and, during the following year, introduced a completely new design, the one that we know now as the SG (“solid Guitar”).

At the time, however, it made good business sense. Sales of the Les Paul were faltering, and Gibson decided to blow a breath of fresh air through its solidbody electric Guitar line. The company described the result as an “ultra-thin, hand-contoured, double-cutaway body.” The modernistic amalgam of bevels and points and angles was a radical departure, and this new book tells the story of all the SG models that followed: the Junior, Special, Standard, Custom and more.

There are interviews with and stories about Gibson personnel through the years, and all the major SG players, including Pete Townshend, Frank Zappa, Eric Clapton, Angus Young, George Harrison, Gary Rossington, Tony Iommi and Derek Trucks.

In the tradition of Tony Bacon's bestselling series of Guitar books, The SG Guitar Book is three great volumes in one package: a collection of drool-worthy pictures of the coolest Guitars; a gripping story from the earliest prototypes to the latest exploits; and a detailed collector's database of every production SG model ever made.
