We all know the Gibson SG. It's a classic looking guitars that been played by some of the greatest ever guitar heroes like Tony Iommi, Angus Young of ACDC and Frank Zappa.

The new 2017 SG has the smaller pickguard than normal, but other than that has all the character and heart of an SG.

The all mahogany body is what gives the SG its mid-range bite and for gain tones, you'd struggle to find a better guitar to cut through the mix.

Slim taper neck

The Slim taper neck is comfortable in the hand without being too flat or too round either. The fret edges are rolled on all of the new Gibson 2017 models which makes them feel played in, straight out of the box and this is something normally found on Gibson Custom shop models.

Pickups

The pickups are 57 Classics which are renowned for their low-output PAF-style tone and giving incredible warmth, especially when used with a bit of dirt on your amplifier. These are perfect for blues and rock and even genres like indie and pop.

Here's what Gibson Say about the 2017 SG Standard

"Raising the Standards
When the double-cutaway SG was unveiled as the (temporary) replacement for the original single-cutaway Les Paul in 1961 it quickly proved itself far more than just a stand-in. An overnight success, this innovative guitar quickly became a favorite with rock, blues, and jazz players and more. The flagship of the SG range, the SG Standard 2017 T represents a superb blend of historic looks and tone and contemporary versatility and playability. Its iconic asymmetrical double-horned body styling and smaller 'teardrop' pickguard hark back to the originals of the early ’60s, and the Classic ’57 and ’57 + humbuckers likewise take you straight back to those hallowed PAF tones. When uncompromising performance matters, locking Grover kidney-button tuners, a slim taper neck, rosewood fingerboard with rolled binding, and our finest modern aluminum Tune-O-Matic bridge and stop bar tailpiece with elegant chrome plating provide a sylish and modern SG playing experience.
The SG Standard 2017 T is delivered in a classic Gibson hardshell case with a Gibson multi-tool, a premium leather strap, and a polishing cloth."
