Here we have a lovely example of this early SG line of guitars. This 1971 SG-100 is a players/collectors guitar, she is all original apart from a replaced volume pot & nut, she is missing the ashtray bridge cover, which was nearly always removed in favour of ‘palm muting’ Her body is in good shape, with an expected amount of play-wear for her age. Her neck is straight and has a low action. She sleeps in an aftermarket hard flight case. Given her Maple body & neck, tonally, she lends herself to the brighter side of life, some say the tone of these are more akin to Fender Telecasters than Gibsons, but with the correct amp settings, you can achieve most tonal ranges!

When you think about iconic Gibson electric guitars, the SG is right up there. It’s a design classic and, thanks to the likes of Angus Young, Tony Iommi and Cream-era Eric Clapton, it’s probably second only to the Les Paul as Gibson’s most recognizable axe, but there’s one SG family member that not many (save guitar enthusiasts) are aware of! Introduced in 1971, the SG-100, SG-200 and SG-250 range was intended to supersede Gibson’s budget-friendly Melody Maker, as the company’s entry-level offering. However, they were a very short-lived line, with the majority of production in 1971. By the summer NAMM show of 1972, Gibson had replaced the SG-100 with the brand new SG-I in its price lists. Hence the SG100’s are now enticing collectors to this rarer line! So don’t miss your chance to own a real piece of Gibson History at a realistic price.
