COOL GEAR ALERT: Gibson SG Standard 24

I was just cruising around and I came across this: the Gibson SG Standard 24 for American Music Supply. Look at this thing! Just LOOK AT IT! Argh, how cool! It bums me out that this is an exclusive model that I guess won’t find its way to Australia. I love mini humbuckers (I used to have a Firebird with Seymour Duncan mini humbuckers which sounded awesome), I love SGs (I’m Australian – we’re genetically predisposed to like SGs because of Angus Young), and 24 frets are ear-shredding fun. From a tonal perspective a mini humbucker in the neck makes a lot of sense: it focuses the pickup on a narrower area of the string, giving you a tighter and more focused sound. I’d love to get my hands on one of these, but alas, I fear I am doomed to miss out. Still, phwoar.

  1. I came across a very similar SG in 1999 while in the US. I don’t remember if it had 24 frets but it had the exact same pickup configuration. It was yellow/blonde and sounded sooo good. Sadly, I did not have the money to buy it at the time. I always wondered what model it was though.
