Gibson SG Standard

The Gibson SG Standard has been an industry icon for decades. Introduced in 1961, the SG quickly became popular thanks to its streamlined, lightweight design and rich, crunchy tones. For 2013, Gibson has made some subtle teaks to the SG Standard model, bringing it closer to the design of its early 60’s predecessors. It now comes equipped with a pair of Gibson Classic ’57 Humbucking pickups; clean, clear, and lush sounding, with a moderate output. These pickups combine perfectly with the SG’s solid mahogany body to create a sweet, punchy midrange with lots of sustain. The neck has been slimmed down to a slim 60’s-style profile for a more comfortable feel. Rounding out the new design is a half-face pickguard, fingerboard binding, vintage style Tone Pro tuners and a true nitrocellulose lacquer finish.
