A guitar so recognisable and iconic you will struggle to find anyone who doesn’t associate it to a guitar god or two. The Gibson SG Standard delivers all the specs of a legendary axe that won a special place in so many artists’ hearts for over 5 decades now. This particular SG is a player disguised as a closet queen.

More info straight from Gibson: Introduced more than a half-century ago, the Gibson SG Standard achieved legendary status almost from the moment it hit the scene in 1961. This sleek double-cutaway rocker had a slim, light body but no shortage of power and sustain, and the kind of fast playability that the guitar world had not previously experienced. Originally introduced as a replacement for the single-cutaway Les Paul, the SG held firm even after the LP’s return in the late ’60s, and has retained its iconic status with rock and blues players ever since, while displaying its versatility by making inroads into virtually all other types of amplified music. 

Coupled with the SG’s characteristic beveled edge—a big part of this model’s distinctive styling—the mahogany’s light weight also enhances playing comfort, and the fine grain of the Grade-A timbers.superb, too. The guitar’s quarter-sawn mahogany neck is carved in a slim tapered profile that measures .800” at the 1st fret and .890” at the 12th. It is glued into the body with Gibson’s acclaimed mortise-and-tenon neck joint, and topped with a rich, rosewood fingerboard with 22 medium-jumbo frets and vintage cream binding. Acrylic trapezoid fingerboard inlays, a mother-of-pearl headstock logo and holly inlay, and the smaller five-ply early ’60s pickguard round out the package visually.

Routed through the classic configuration of an independent volume and tone control for each pickup and a three-way toggle switch, this pair gives you warm yet articulate voices from the neck position, crunchy and singing bridge tones, and sweet round sounds in between.
