Here is a New Old Stock Gibson SG Standard Tribute, built during 2019 at the Nashville plant and wearing the Natural Walnut thin lacquer finish. This instrument is technically new but it’s been here for some time.

The Gibson SG Standard first appeared in 1961 as a radical update to the Les Paul model, and bore the Les Paul name until 1963. This change had two drivers – one, Les Paul himself was not overly fond of the design, and his endorsement association with Gibson was coming to an end, partly due to complications with his divorce from Mary Ford. With the change in name, the Les Paul models disappeared from production until 1968, its resurgence sparked by the combination of that guitar and Marshall stacks as used by British blues-influenced players.

Here we’re looking at a Gibson SG Standard Tribute. The Tribute models are intended as lower cost, but high quality designs, and use much of the same materials, production methods and hardware as the more expensive models. The savings come from less elaborate finishes and decoration – there’s no binding on the fingerboard, for example.   This model uses Mahogany for the body and neck, with an unbound,  pale Rosewood fingerboard.  Hardware includes Gibson Deluxe keystone button tuners, ABR bridge and stop tailpiece,  and a pair of 490 Alnico II pickups,  the 490R and 490T models (R for Rhythm,  T for Treble). 

This guitar is new, and still has the protective plastic on the pickguard. 

The Gibson SG Standard Tribute is sold with its original Gibson gig bag.

Here’s the official builder’s description of the Gibson SG Standard Tribute:

“Available in Vintage Cherry Satin, and Natural Walnut Satin the new 2019 SG Standard Tribute boast a traditional Mahogany body and rounded profile maple neck with rosewood fingerboard. Finished with a black, 5-ply full-face pickguard loaded with double black, open-coil 490R and 490T pickups giving the 2019 Gibson SG Standard Tribute its voice. Nickel hardware and Vintage Keystone tuners finish off the SG Standard Tribute. “
