“If you’re going to recreate a guitar you’ve got to do it right and I think everyone is really gonna enjoy this”: Epiphone unveils the Joe Bonamassa 1963 Gibson SG Custom

Epiphone and Joe Bonamassa have teamed up once more for the launch of a new signature guitar based on the Mayor of Nerdville’s very own 1963 Gibson SG Custom.

This is a special electric guitar. They didn’t make many like this in the first place. Originally a custom order, it would be a rare find on the vintage market, presenting a triple-humbucker version of the SG all dressed up and doing the town with MOP block inlays, gold hardware, and multi-ply binding on the headstock.

You would typically see these in white – “99 times out of 100,” says Bonamassa. But this was Cherry Red by request. The original owner, who played guitar in the Casuals back in the day, had different ideas. Bonamassa says the similarities between the Epiphone and its Gibson forebear are remarkable. Though there is quite a big price differential.
