Just traded, a very hard to find and sort after instrument. In very clean condition, no paint loss, small impressions in the back here and there and light scuffs. Minimal playing wear. Great guitar!

This Stunning Limited SG Sounds as Great as it Looks!
The Gibson SG Carved Top – Autumn Burst limited edition solidbody electric guitar adds an elegant AAA carved maple top to a classic design to give you a breathtaking instrument! Gibson thought so much of this guitar that they’re designating the SG Carved Top – Autumn Burst as a Guitar of the Month for March 2009. In addition to its fantastic looks, the beautifully figured maple top imparts a distinctive tone to this SG while adding sustain (why let the Les Pauls have all the fun?). Chrome-plated hardware, a comfortable mahogany neck, and two Burstbucker Pro humbucking pickups are also featured on the SG Carved Top – Autumn Burst.

Take a look at that top!
The first thing you notice about the SG Carved Top-Autumn Burst is its highly figured AAA maple top — complete with a gloss Autumn Burst nitrocellulose finish to bring out the full depth of its stunning grain. According to Gibson, this is the finest wood ever applied to the SG in its storied history, and it makes this Limited Run Series guitar a must for any Gibson aficionado. But the maple top goes beyond its simple aesthetic beauty. It also provides this SG the sonic quality and sustain of Gibson’s legendary Les Paul Standard. This guitar’s a sight to behold, but hearing is believing! Call your Sweetwater Sales Engineer today to find out what a true tone-monster this amazing guitar can be.

The guitar’s tone is further enhanced by a pair of Burstbucker Pro humbucking pickups, which employ Alnico V magnets for a little extra sting and punch, and feature wax-potted coils to combat potential squeal and microphony. Each pickup also features two coils with unmatched windings to retain a little extra sonic edge in their “enhanced vintage” performance.
Premium appointments fit for a limited model
The SG Carved Top-Autumn Burst also includes the SG’s standard 24-3/4″ scale length mahogany neck with two extra frets, a rosewood fingerboard with figured acrylic trapezoid inlays, Grover kidney-shaped tuners, and Gibson’s traditional Tune-o-matic bridge and stopbar tailpiece. The SG Carved Top-Autumn Burst is limited to just 350 guitars, and each one comes with a special Limited Run Series certificate of authenticity and a black hardshell case with white interior and silkscreened Gibson USA logo.
