rofl. I think the idea is cool, but it looks dumb. Never knew birch can be a guitar tone wood. I thought birch was for cabs, not guitars.

Well. Express your opinions.

I think it looks pretty awesome myself. Don't have $2000 to spend but if I did, I might consider buying it. The black and white combo actually looks really good.

Wow A plywood Gibson SG! I bet you guys never saw that coming. I am pretty sure they made these a while ago but they didn't go over big.

I think if you were to see one in person you'd be disappointed. The way its made makes the wood look uneven IMO. $2000? no thank you. Gibson please realize the economy is tough and people are looking for bang for their buck, not to waste their bucks.

They make several different color combination but the thing that gets me is it's PLYWOOD! Now I always read here and in other forums how Plywood is for cheap a** guitars. Now that Gibson is doing a plywood guitar it's OK. ????

Personally I like the look of it, and I've never heard a birch guitar before, so I'm going to approach it with an open mind and wait for one to get stocked here to judge it.

I like the second one and the last one.

The first looks like a lollipop.

The third one looks like something Peter Parker would play.

I kinda like. But i think you need to approach it open minded like necrosis said. And for the guys raging on gibson for the price, thats msrp. Most shops dont sell for msrp. The SG standard has a higher msrp than that. So it shouldnt be to bad.

I really like the looks but I just cant see the price for a guitar that is in all actuality basically plywood. Quality>Looks any day.
#27
I actually bought a Birch Plywood custom made guitar from the guy who used to build guitars at EU Wurlitzer here in Boston. He told me because of the odd shape it had to be plywood and the strongest most stable plywood was birch. The guitar is in my pics it's shaped like the company logo EUCO with the W as the head stock it was made to be an actual working guitar and an advertising sign. I still don't know if I would buy a Gibson SG made of Plywood I will have to try one out whenever the hit the shops.

Ever since I seen this I knew it reminded me of something! The inside of a Jawbreaker.



I think the SG Jawbreaker would be better name than the Zoot Suit.

Mmmmmm Jawbreaker...And i'm not a big fan of that monstrosity at all it looks really really tacky but I can see how some people would like it.

Oh yeah, huh? Then the red/black one would be for his nemesis Carthage! Can the black one be for Batman? =) What about Superman for the red/blue finish?

To be honest, I thought this was about a clothing product when I saw the title. After I read the responses, I too am surprised. Had no idea it was made of birch, but the red/black is appealing to me--not so much as the P-90 Classic, however. But for some reason it feels, er, "rough", like a well polished rocking chair or something.

Technically speaking, all standard Les Pauls are plywood. The term really doesn't mean what so many people think it means.

I saw a couple of people mention 'tonewood' too - that term doesn't apply to solid body electric guitars, so there you go.



Anyway, this is actually a bit old, they announced it a fair few months ago.

It's alright. A carved top SG isn't a brand new idea and neither is a brightly-coloured trippy-hippie SG.

It should actually be a dream to play on - better body/neck balance than a normal SG, should have more sustain and better clarity too.
Though I think Vintage's recreation of The Fool SG is probably a smarter buy if you just want that kind of look.
Yes, I know everything. No, I can't play worth a damn.
