Gibson advertisement (1972) Gibson lets you feel what you play - so you can play what you feel

Your guitar has to have feeling too. Gibson SG Solid Bodies have a consistent and comfortable freedom across the fretboard that lets you add your own personal touch to each note. Going from one end of the neck to the other can be a long uphill journey on a lot of guitars. Too often the strings sit higher near the top of the neck so that they're harder to press down. With Gibson's revolutionary new peghead taper there's almost no difference from the first fret to the 22nd. So if you have some good licks in E?feel free to move up 10 frets to D. Or even 19 to B. You can close your eyes and feel your way into your own persona] experience. The new neck design on all SG Models has Gibson's extra slim, fast-action feel. The back of the neck doesn't stop abruptly at the body. It's one smooth plain from bridge to bridge to give you an easy reach and feel for the highest notes. To put some real feeling into your playing... get a guitar that has feeling too. Try a Gibson SG Solid Body. You'll feel what we mean.
