Gibson Unveils Kirk Douglas SG


Fans of the Roots who’ve seen “Captain” Kirk Douglas play with the group in concert or on their regular weeknight gig as the house band for Late Night With Jimmy Fallon know his original three-pickup Gibson SG Custom is a favorite. And that 1969 model, is the inspiration for the Kirk Douglas signature guitar, which pairs its multi-ply neck binding and acrylic pearloid block marker inlays with gold hardware (including Grover tuners), a gold Maestro vibrato arm with gold plate-style tailpiece, gold Tune-O-Matic bridge, a double-wide white pick guard and three classic ’57 humbuckers with push-pull tone pots allowing for trim single-coil sounds.

Made from solid Grade-A mahogany in a high-gloss Vintage Cherry nitrocellulose finish with a rosewood fingerboard topped with a large Custom headstock with multi-ply binding and a split-diamond inlay.
