Brian Ray '62 SG JuniorJust a Junior? Think again.

The Brian Ray ’62 SG Junior builds on the popularity of Brian’s ‘63 SG Standard model with exciting design elements, versatile features and analog innovations. It has become Brian’s guitar of choice on recent tours with Sir Paul McCartney, playing on the world’s biggest stages. And because of the variety of stage conditions, Brian wanted to make sure this SG Junior offered a lot more than meets the eye. A passive “induction coil” circuit, engaged with a tap of the push-push knob, hides under the pickguard to reduce RF interference and high-gain noise while preserving the tone of the powerful P-90 pickup. The clever convertible bridge design gives players the choice between a tune-o-matic ABR-1 or wrap-tail bridge and a Vibrola tremolo or stop bar tailpiece setup – all available in the time it takes to change strings. The solid mahogany body is also slightly thicker than a normal SG, which Brian says “offers more low and mid-range punch to the overall tone of the guitar up and down the neck.” The finishing touches include sleek, pearlescent White Fox paint, a custom trapezoid inlay pattern and an ebony block tailpiece as seen on some original 1962 SG models. It’s easily the most versatile and distinctive SG Junior ever created, and for Brian it’s also reliable and just plain cool. + expand +
