Gibson SG Supreme 2016 Limited Run

Came across the whole series of 2016 Limited guitars and these ones caught my attention immediately.

Beautiful flame top, elaborate appointments and luxurious finishing set these apart from the standard offerings. Again, Guitarbear is smitten with an SG sans pickguard.

The simple and rather unusual electronics is refreshing. Here we have an SG with only one volume one tone, plus a sideway output jack. Very unorthodox. SGSU16OBCH1_MAIN_HERO_01

Other appointments include Grover locking tuners, mother of pearl inlays and hardcase. Surprised to see richlite used for fingerboard though.

It’d be interesting to see if this one will reach SG.
