Gibson SG Zoot Suit Blue and red Died Birch , carved top, Electric Guitar case
These are very rare guitars, they feature a carved top like a Les Paul making it more substantial than a typical Sg. Couple with the different colors of layers wood, it also weighs like a Les Paul. In good shape, we are going to order new knobs. One was broken. Comes with road runner thermal plastic hard case. Plays easy and fast, sounds great. The pickups have clear plastic showing the winds. Just very unique and minimal signs of use.

Gibson SG Zoot Suit LTD Edition Guitar
The new Gibson Zoot Suit SG guitar is the ultimate for stage style and playability. The word "Zoot" is jazz slang meaning extravagant style to which this guitar encapsulates. At first glance, one might think that the unique coloration of the Zoot Suit guitar is simply a clever paint scheme. Incredibly though, there is no paint used on the guitar.
Featuring a brand new body built with multiple birch wood laminate, each laminate piece is dyed with a different color then compressed and bonded together to form one solid block of wood. Two coats of satin lacquer are then applied to provide a smooth finish and also help protect the body from any damage. Other catchy characteristics of the SG Zoot Suit guitar include the multicolored neck of the Zoot Suit that also constructed using multiple birch wood laminate pieces, and Gibson's legendary 496R and 500T pickups, which feature clear coil forms to see the copper wire, ceramic magnets, and plenty of wire for the screaming' hot pickups.
This guitar is one of 2009's most standout and exciting guitars and produced in limited quantity.
