Gibson Limited Edition SG Standard 24
Electric Guitar with Case
Gibson made a Tony Iommi guitar that was 24 fret for those who wanted a 24 fret SG guitar. Then in 2011 for Gibson’s 50th Anniversary, they issued a limited run of 24 fret Gibson SG’s. Unfortunately, I didn’t get one of those, but Gibson also put out a limited run of 24 fret SG’s in 2012 and I got one! This model is supposed to be only available at American Musical Supply and that is where I purchased mine.
The bridge ( sometimes called the saddle ), is not only adjusted for height, but also to level the bridge with the neck.
But before we get into the differences in adjusting them, first let’s discuss what we are trying to achieve.
Dotted and Tied Notes
This Lesson will explain what a dotted note and what a tied note is. Above is an example of each. Both of these examples in music would sound the same. In fact, you could just put an equals sign in between them. So, let’s do that and later on in the lesson, we’ll get back to that.
Actually what I am going to write about is the difference between tubes and solid state transistors. When amps first hit the market, the only thing available was tube amps. Transistors wouldn’t come along for decades later. So initially, that’s all there was to work with. It was the only show in town.
I have had this guitar since 2008 and although I could have written a review a long time ago, I never did and I thought it was about time. At least by me waiting, you will know how it stood the test of time. They were originally made in Korea in 2002 and all the years after, Indonesia. Mine was made in Indonesia.
All guitarists that have very much time in on a guitar (say 2-3 years) have found out what they like and what they don’t. It’s not hard for them because they have pretty much tried it all.
Now for those guitarists that are beginning and intermediate, they are still on the scale teetering as to which they like. For those, and for those who aren’t decided on what they want, let’s explore the world of picks and get to picking.
