Bet it Rings Like a Glock
The word zoot is jazz slang meaning extravagant style--certainly an apt description for the Gibson USA SG Zoot Suit electric guitar. The radical design starts with a brand new body built with multiple birch wood laminate pieces (each one approximately .075" thick), each dyed with a different color then compressed and bonded together to form one solid block of wood. No paint is used. Each body is given two coats of satin nitrocellulose lacquer.
