The newly refreshed SG Junior returns with a more accurate 60s classic design that made it relevant, played and loved -- shaping sound across generations and genres of music. Initially introduced in the early 60's as a student model, the SG Junior has been embraced by musicians for almost 60 years. The rich, Vintage Cherry lacquer finish, early 60's neck joint and sharp vintage body scarfing are hallmarks of this model. It’s equipped with the powerful single dogear P-90 pickup with handwired controls and an orange drop capacitor. The Vintage Deluxe style tuners with white buttons and compensated wraparound bridge also contribute to simplicity, function and rock-solid tone.

 First introduced in the early 1950s, Gibson's legendary P90 single coil pickup produced a raw powerful tone that helped define the blues and rock and roll in their formative years. Today, the P90's traditional combination of high output and brilliant tone is still considered a favorite among many top musicians. Known by such familiar nicknames as the "Soapbar" and the "Cobalt," the P90 still cuts through any type of music, all while displaying amazing tonal sensitivity for everything from blues and rock to mellow jazz riffs. It's perfect as a vintage replacement, and features vintage, braided two-conductor wiring. It's also fully wax potted to eliminate any chance of unwanted microphonic feedback.
