Has this happened to you?
You’ve been searching all over the Internet for the Gibson SG Signature Series and you keep coming up with lots of information about guitars named after people like the Gibson SG Angus
Information on the Gibson SG Electric Guitar Series.
But that's not what you want!
As it turns out, a few words can make a difference.
You’re probably looking for the Gibson Baldwin Music Education Signature Series Electric SG Guitar.
It’s a low-end instrument aimed at music students -- with a name that couldn’t be any bigger.
While Gibson has made artist signature models named after and built to the specifications of famous guitarists like Jimmi Page and Angus Young, those are high-end limited edition items, and you’re not ready for those.
In fact, most guitar players never are.
Here’s the story about what you’re really looking for.
In 2005, Gibson launched a new division called Gibson Baldwin Music Education aimed at supporting music education by bringing out new lines of low-cost instruments and donating a portion of the proceeds from their sale to music education charities.
The best part, however, is these lines are intended to reach entry-level guitarists in places they already go, so they’re available at Best Buy, Kmart and Target, among other retailers.
Electric guitars aren’t the only instruments included in the program either.
Acoustic and bass guitars join alongside woodwinds, horns and percussion instruments.
And here’s where that name confusion comes in: GBME division brand names for these easily available lines include Maestro, Epoch, Spirit, Talent, Savant and -- you guessed it -- Signature.
So the Gibson Baldwin Music Education Signature Series Electric SG Guitar is probably what you’re really looking for, not all those famous-named guitars that will run you thousands of dollars and include specialty features you’ll never need.
The Signature Series Electric SG Guitar is based on a Gibson design that dates back to 1961 -- and it includes just enough features to give it a distinctive Gibson look.
The solid mahogany body gives you as much sound as you’re likely to find in an electronics store or discount megabox.
As it turns out, searching for the Gibson SG Signature Series just nearly left you out in the cold.
Fortunately, you’ve stumbled upon the one place where you can get a complete explanation of how close is often good enough in Internet searching.
And somehow, it’s appropriate that a close-enough search term found you a guitar that closely resembles a full-priced Gibson SG guitar, closely enough for beginners and music students to get off to a good start with a Gibson.
