The SG, the Flying V, and the Explorer all launched after 1957. Pretty much everything else has been a disaster though, with a few minor exceptions.Gibson hasn't had a good guitar body shape idead since 1957, the next good thing they did was maple necks in the eighties. The dummest thing they've done THIS decade, besides getting raided, was an ARCHTOP SG.
Are you referring to the SG Diablo? Those things rock. I wish I'd bought one while they were easier to get. Not only do they have 24 frets, but the slightly thicker body improves both the tone and the weight distribution.The dummest thing they've done THIS decade, besides getting raided, was an ARCHTOP SG.
