Trouble was, its Spartan complement of controls left it functionally, well…awkward.

With a Volume potentiometer for each pickup, a master Tone control, and no selector switch, all the pickups in the world weren’t any use if you couldn’t coordinate them quickly and easily.

There are some ideas as to why the more expensive, classier G-808 never quite took off with the same following as the G-303.

Aside from the fact that Pat Metheny is not dragging a G-808 out every night, the G-808 guitar seems slightly neck heavy when compared to the G-303.

I think it is striking to see the differences among all the neck joint types, i.e., “heels”.

Below, from left to right: 1961 Gibson SG Custom, 1971 Gibson SG Standard (note the cracked and then fixed heel: common on many SGs of any era), 1967 Gibson SG Standard, 1969 Gibson SG Standard, Angus Young Signature Custom Shop #37, 1970 Gibson SG Standard and last, 1964 Gibson SG Standard.

One of the most highly flamed Gibson's you will ever see. Rare 1948 double pickup ES-300, Blonde Finish, Master Tone knob, Kluson tuners, 17 inch body, and Bigsby added in the 1960s.
