This listing is for Guitar History: Gibson SG Paperback by John Bulli.
Publisher: Bold Strummer Ltd; F First Edition edition (September 1, 1989)
A succinct but detailed account of instruments from 1961, when the Gibson SG's were introduced, through to the present. The Gibson SG Standard is one of the big names in the history of guitar making, along with Gibson Les Paul and Fender Stratocaster / Telecaster. It has been used by many famous guitarists, and it's a rock n' roll icon worldwide.
Easily recognised by its double cutaway horns, its evil looks inspired Tony Iommi legendary riffs and Angus Young rocking melodies.
The SG in the name actually stands for Solid Guitar, and it was introduced in 1961 as a new thinner, lighter Les Paul model, mainly to compete against the great sales of Fender Stratocaster, and to fight the decreasing sales of the classic Les Paul model. But Les Paul didn't like it, and made his name dissapear from the SG's headstock, and ever after that it was to be called "SG".
