What’s this? A custom line of SG Standards, designed and built exclusively for Chicago Music Exchange? That’s right. Our very own Dan Bordonaro and Joel Bauman worked in close collaboration with Gibson USA’s Master Luthier Jim DeCola to create this custom run of double-cut crazy, featuring all kinds of stuff you’re not soon to see, or possibly ever see, on any SG outside of our Lincoln Ave. showroom. Believe us. This is big. And if these SGs don’t already have their horns in you by now, they will.
Our CME exclusive Standards feature custom colorways never before seen on an SG, or any Gibson for that matter. Mixed specially for us, these colors are the result of a tireless back-and-forth to perfect the unique palette of awesomeness we now present to you. To complement these unusual finishes we’ve added small block inlays and a special tortoiseshell pickguard, also unique to our CME exclusives. But what’s most impressive about our custom run of SG Standards is not the pickguard, or the finish. In fact, it sits right on top of it.
