There’s not much more iconic than the Gibson SG. The Nashville-based company have injected the Standard model with a new lease of life to keep it rocking for years to come. This is the ultimate rock guitar made to be played live.
Body & Neck
The Rosewood fingerboard is a mainstay throughout the Standard range. Not much can beat the feeling of a beautiful, grainy Rosewood for effortless playing on the 22 rolled frets.
Its slim taper Mahogany neck provides the lightning-fast playability which the SG was designed for in the mid-20th century. It retains the matching resonant Mahogany trans finish body that offers huge sustain. The SG is also still as light as ever. Great for high-octane live shows or comfortable playing for hours on end at home.
Gibson’s 490R and T pickups are a perfect balance between modern and vintage. They’re designed to accentuate the midrange and retain a relatively broad bass and treble full frequency. Their unbalanced coils give them top-end bite and punchy tone.
Two tone and two volume knobs give you plenty of room to manoeuvre and shape unique sounds.
The Graph Tech nut and Grover tuners combination ensures stable tuning and excellent sound transfer, so you can go wild with bends, vibrato and aggressive playing. Gibson have equipped the SG with a super sturdy Tune-O-Matic bridge and an aluminium stopbar. No rusting, easy to clean and extreme comfort for the picking hand.
