Is this the most exciting guitar of 2021 so far? We reckon it just might be!...
Join us as we take a closer look at the new Gibson Kirk Douglas signature SG! Kirk may not be a household name here in the UK (the musician at least, not the actor), but he plays to an audience of millions with his band The Roots, live on the US Jimmy Fallon show, week after week. Playing in that kind of scenario requires an instrument that won't let you down, tonally or practically, and that lead Kirk to collaborate with Gibson on his signature model: a go-anywhere, catch-all piece that offers more sonic versatility than any other Gibson USA model currently available.
Jack guides you through the clever electronic capabilities, as well as his general thoughts on this instrument's stellar tones and playability (and how to choose between those two stunning finishes!)
