Shoulder-friendly and incredibly playable, it has the tone that launched a billion riffs.
The Gibson SG Standard Electric Guitar is one of the most popular incarnations of the renowned Gibson
SG. It takes the best of the '62 original and adds the longer and sturdier neck joint of the late '60s models. All the classic
features you'd expect from a historic guitar. Hot humbuckers go from rich, sweet lightning to warm, tingling waves of sustain.
A silky-fast rosewood fretboard plays like a dream. The original-style beveled mahogany body looks like a million bucks. Plus,
Tune-O-Matic bridge and chrome hardware. Limited lifetime warranty. Includes hardshell case.
A Little SG History
In 1961, the Les Paul was redesigned with a thinner body and 2 sharp cutaway horns that making the upper frets more accessible
while lowering production costs. The new guitar was popular, but Les Paul the guitarist did not like it and asked to have
his name removed. Gibson renamed the model the "SG" which was short for "solid guitar". Though Les Paul's name was officially
removed from the model in 1961, the plastic Les Paul nameplates (positioned between the rhythm pickup and fingerboard) were
in abundance in the Gibson factory and SG models having these nameplates were built and sold by Gibson up to end of 1963.
SGs have been the choice of world-class artists such as Pete Townsend, Eric Clapton, Tony Iommi, and Angus Young.
