SG Xtra Slim
Long a favorite of classic rockers and metal heads alike, the short-lived variation of the SG Standard from the early part of the mid ’60s has been particularly popular with some players for its super-fast slim, narrow neck. An SG from this era has been critical to unbridled rock mojo of AC/DC’s Angus Young, to name but one—and now it can rock your world, too, in the form of Gibson USA’s Limited Run SG Xtra Slim. An easy feeling neck with a width of just 1.55” at the nut and an Xtra Slim Taper™ profile that goes from .775” at the 1st fret to .850” at the 12th steers you straight into the fast lane, while a pair of thick-yet-clear 57 Classic humbuckers deliver full-bore PAF tones. Add the smaller early ’60s 5-ply pickguard and great vintage looks courtesy of a Heritage Cherry finish and pearl dot markers, plus the uncompromising tonewoods and build quality you’ve come to expect from Gibson USA, and it’s an astounding American-crafted electric guitar at this price.
