The SG100 / SG200 / SG250 series, was Gibsons early seventies entry level range. Brand new in 1971, they were to fill the role held previously by the the Gibson Melody Maker. Like the Melody Maker they were SG shaped, with single coil pickups, though alder bodied with maple necks.
The SG100 and SG200 were announced to dealers on February 2nd 1971, along with the SB300 and SB400 basses. The SB100 was first listed in the June 1971 price list at $229.50 (US zone 1 price).
This was a very short lived line, with the majority of production in 1971. By the summer NAMM show of 1972, Gibson had replaced the SG-100 with the brand new SG-I in it's price lists.
