When the SG, or “Solid Guitar,” was introduced in 1960 as a replacement for the Les Paul Standard, it was called the “fretless wonder” for its low frets and fast action. The twin horn cutaway design was like nothing on the market and its light but balanced weight made it the perfect guitar for stage and studio work. The powerful sound of a humbucker equipped SG has became the go-to guitar for artists such as The Who’s Pete Townshend, Black Sabbath’s Tony Iommi, Paul Weller, AC/DC’s Angus Young, Eric Clapton and Derek Trucks of the Allman Brothers Band.
