Gibson Derek Trucks signature SG is based on the 1961 version of the beloved model. Trucks is the acclaimed guitarist of both the Derek Trucks Band and the current incarnation of the Allman Brothers lineup. It features dual Classic 57 Alnico humbucking pickups and a high-gloss Heritage Cherry-finished Grade-A mahogany body. The mahogany neck sports a slim early ‘60s-style “D” profile with a 12” radius rosewood finger board and 22 medium-jumbo frets. It measures 1 11/16th” at the PLEK-cut Corian nut. The ’57 Classic humbuckers sound great, chock full of PAF-esque vintage tone. These models came with the Lyre vibrato cover but with no vibrato system, just like how most SG users of the time would remove the often-unstable vibrato bridge system for better tuning stability. They also came without a pickguard, to better replicate Trucks’ own SG guitars. It also features a “no-wire” early style ABR-1 Tune-o-matic tailpiece, 14:1 vintage style nickel plated tuning machines with pearloid buttons, 500k volume and tone potentiometers for each pickup, and a 3-way pickup selector switch. It is strung up with round-wound 10s and plays superbly with very comfortable and low action. It weighs in at 7 lbs 10 ounces. Cosmetically the guitar is in incredible shape with no noticeable wear. It looks like it was very well taken care for by the previous owner. Overall this SG is the perfect guitar whether you are a Derek Trucks fanatic or just in the market for an authentic-feeling replication of a classic early ‘60s SG. Includes original Gibson SG hardshell case.
