It’s pretty obvious that I’m a Gibson SG fan, and as soon as I saw this book coming out I had to have it.
The best thing about it it’s that it’s new… so you’ll find up to date info and great quality pictures, the data seems to be correct as well, I know the history of the SG quite well and I didn’t find any mistakes which is a good thing.
The book takes you on the journey since the SG was designed and went on the market for the first time, it also tells us about the most famous guitar players that use the SG as a main guitar, giving us detailed pictures on their custom models and also what was different about their guitars.
This book is intended for someone that:
a) wants great quality pictures of SGs
b) is really into the history of the SG
With this I’m not trying to say it’s a boring book… but you have to be a keen SG person to fully enjoy the book as it takes us through every change on the model over the years, and that is the main reason I love it.
I recommend the book for any Gibson SG fans out there, it’s a great read and also a very good reference book to have, if you are someone that collects SGs this will help you identify your new guitar on the Gibson timeline
