The Original Double-Cutaway Rocker, Loaded for Tone and Ready for Action!
Its more than just a coincidence that mahogany is one of the most prized woods for electric guitar design, and the Gibson USA SG Standard is arguably the most classic example of the use of this fine tonewood in an instrument thats both nuanced and powerful. Unlike thicker mahogany/maple designs, the SG Standards thinner solid-mahogany body offers a considerable reduction on weight, while presenting a warm, rich resonance with lots of harmonic depth and sparkle.
The guitars solid mahogany neck is carved to a rounded profile similar to SGs from the mid-60s, for superb in-the-hand comfort and outstanding playability, while its glued in deep-set, long-tenon neck/body joint and 17-degree back angled headstock team up to provide a transference of neck resonance into the body thats far superior to other neck designs. Of course, a pair of Alnico-loaded humbuckers was always a big part of the SGs magic, and todays SG Standard brings it on in spades. With Gibsons popular 490R in the neck position and the slightly hotter 498T in the bridge, the SG Standard gives you everything from bluesy vocal warmth to snarling, wailing aggression, all at the flip of a three-way toggle switch. A stopbar tailpiece provides a rock-solid anchor behind Gibsons legendary Tune-o-matic bridge, prized for its ability to enhance singing sustain while remaining highly adjustable to perfect your instruments intonation.
Sum it all up, and its a guitar of unrivaled versatility and stunning looks and a rock beast to be reckoned with. All this, and your SG Standard comes protected in a formfitting Gibson hardshell case, and is covered by Gibsons famous Limited Lifetime Warranty and 24/7/365 customer service. It could just be the bargain of the decade or the past four. Check one out now at your authorized Gibson dealer. Body and Finish
A solid mahogany body with beveled edges for added comfort and that distinctive and dangerous dual-horned double-cutaway design are hallmarks of the legendary SG Standard. The guitars select mahogany components ring with all the depth and richness youd expect from a classic tonewood, and look great in your choice of nitrocellulose finish in Heritage Cherry or Ebony Black.
