The Celebrity Series instruments were part of a Guitar of the Month special issue from July through October 1991. There were four different models, one for each month, each of which featured black finish, gold plated metal hardware, and a Celebrity Series decal on the back of the peghead. The SG Standard Celebrity Series model was the August 1991 instrument in this series. (only 200 were made) It features a mahogany neck and body, ebony fingerboard with white binding and pearloid trapezoid inlays, Gibson and crown shape pearl peghead inlays, beveled edge laminated black pickguard which surrounds the two humbucking pickups and the bridge, Gibson model 490 humbucking neck position pickup and model 498 bridge position pickup, gold plated metal hardware, black finish, and original hard shell case. Made to look like it's warring a tux.
