Gibson Custom Shop Brian Ray '62 SG Junior Electric Guitar, White Fox
Just a Junior? Think again — the brilliant Custom Shop Gibson Brian Ray '62 SG Junior electric guitar builds on the popularity of Brian's '63 SG Standard model with exciting design elements, versatile features and analog innovations. It has become Brian's guitar of choice on recent tours with Sir Paul McCartney, playing on the world's biggest stages. And because of the conditions, Brian wanted to make sure this SG Junior offered a lot more than meets the eyes.
Colored in a wicked White Fox with a gloss nitrocellulose lacquer finish, this American-made SG features a solid mahogany body that's thicker than a normal SG, offering more low and mid-range punch to the overall tone of the guitar. A comfortable Custom 1962 SlimTaper-profile solid mahogany neck is fitted, along with a smooth and perfectly playable Indian rosewood fingerboard on top cradled by a 1-ply cream binding and a set of gorgeous custom trapezoid inlay patterns.
A passive induction coil circuit, engaged with a tap of the push/push knob, hides under the pickguard to reduce RD interference and high-gain noise while preserving the tone of the powerful black dog-ear P90 pickup. The clever convertible bridge design gives players the choice between a Tune-O-Matic ABR-1, a wrap-tail bridge, and/or a Vibrola tremolo — all available in the time it takes to change the strings.
It's easily the most versatile and distinctive SG Junior ever created, and for Brian it's also reliable and just plain cool.
