The SG Supreme was part of the Supreme line that Gibson introduced awhile back to show off some of the cool cosmetics they can do to a guitar. This features a mahogany body with a flamed maple top, a set mahogany neck with ebony fretboard, a bound fretboard, 22 gold frets, special inlays, two gold covered humbuckers, two volume knobs, two tone knobs and a three way switch.

UTILIZATION

The SG Supreme looks absolutely stunning. The tops on these things really pop out at you, and the guitar seems to weigh a bit more thanks to the maple top. A lot of people dislike the gold hardware, but I think it looks perfect on this guitar. It really sets it apart from others in the SG lineup. The guitar doesn't seem to neck dive as much as the other models, and I think that's partly due to the maple top they have.

SOUNDS

The SG Supreme sounds pretty different from the other models. For one, it's a good bit brighter. This could be a plus or minus depending on what you're going for. The ebony fretboard also adds some sizzle to the top end which cuts through the mix like crazy. If you're like me, you'll probably want to replace the pickups. Thankfully, this guitar isn't like the Les Paul Supreme in that it doesn't have a control cavity. It's very easy to replace the pickups in this model compared to the LP Supreme.

OVERALL OPINION

These guitars are pretty expensive, and it's hard to justify if they're worth the coin or not. That said, the guitar is absolutely beautiful, and it plays great. The tone is a bit different, so be sure to play one before you decide on buying it. Thankfully, the one I played tends to have better fretwork than what's found on most normal Gibsons, so you shouldn't have too much of an issue when buying one over the internet.
