The Twelfth Fret ~ Since 1977 ~

Gibson SG Standard Ebony Black, 2007


Instrument Categories: , ,

From 2005, here’s a Gibson SG Standard in Ebony Black, with the classic ‘Batwing’ pickguard and recently set up at The Twelfth Fret Repair shop. This example dates to March 8, 2005 and was built at Gibson Nashville. Overall, it’s in good original condition with light play wear. As can be seen in the rear view image, there’s an autograph in silver sharpie on the back of the headstock. However, it’s unknown whose autograph it is.

The Gibson SG Standard utilizes classic design elements and features from the late 60’s models that are sought after by many players. The double cutaway body and long tenon 19th fret neck joint provide excellent, nearly unrestricted access all the way up the fretboard. The neck profile is rounded and feels very solid without being too thick.

The electronics featured on the Gibson SG Standard are the traditional two volume, two tone controls with three way toggle switch and 490R and 490T humbuckers with Alnico 2 magnets. They provide a fairly hot output with lots of power and sustain for that classic rock and roll crunch! The tuners on this example are Gibson Deluxe models with keystone buttons. These are a good choice as they are physically lighter than models like RotoMatics.

Top it all off with a 5 ply black full face pickguard – sometimes called the ‘Batwing’ – on the high gloss Ebony Black nitrocellulose lacquer finish and you have the classic looks that have made the SG a players favourite for years.

This Gibson SG Standard comes with its original ‘Protector’ case, also sometimes called the ‘Chainsaw’ case as it looks like that’s what it could be holding!
