The story of the SG begins in 1961 when it was first introduced as a replacement for the Les Paul model. Later, the Les Paul would be reintroduced, but the SG's impact changed the landscape of Gibson guitars forever, and our Wildwood Spec SG Standards are our tribute to that legacy. We've worked closely with the Gibson Custom Shop to design a faithful reproduction of the SG that started it all, so it features a hide glue neck joint, a premium mahogany body, and--of course--our signature Wildwood Spec Custom Buckers. It's a loving recreation of a timeless classic, and we firmly believe that the passion that went into this collaboration has imbued these guitars with all of the heart, soul, and mojo of a vintage instrument. We couldn't be more proud of our relationship with the Gibson Custom Shop, and we are humbled and honored to present our exceptional customers with the fruits of our collaboration: the Wildwood Spec SG Standard.

Tonal Evaluation


Usually, I try to come up with a clever way to begin these tonal evaluations, but I had to waste a bunch of time picking my jaw up off the floor after playing this SG and there is no time for cleverness now--only tone talk! This is a particularly bright-sounding SG, with superb brilliance in the trebles and biting midrange across the board. The bridge pickup sounds like it hung out with Telecasters for too long and began to adopt their mannerisms, as it carries that same sort of punchiness and high-end sizzle. The neck pickup features more low-midrange response, but it's still right in the middle of the tonal spectrum between bright and warm. So, you can get big beefy rhythm tones without sacrificing presence or clarity! Fans of Derek Trucks and Dickey Betts will love this SG for its snappiness and bite, while punk rockers will dig the way it snarls. Anyone looking for a bright-sounding SG will love this serial, though!
