Features: What it does for you:
'57 Classic humbucking pickups Vintage PAF feel; warmth, depth and distinct edge
Mahogany body Rich, warm, focused sound; added sustain
Black block position inlays Classic, vintage look and upgraded quality
Min-ETune tuning system Automatic tuning, 12 presets, 6 user presets
The Gibson SG Standard Min-ETune electric guitar looks and sounds as devilish as always -- with a boost from Gibson's Min-ETune tuning system. This automatic tuning system features 12 factory stored preset tunings, 6 user-programmable presets, super fast tuning, and vintage-style buttons -- all while remaining ultra-sleek and lightweight.

Ever since Gibson first released the SG design in 1961, players have appreciated its light, fast playing both onstage and in the studio. The 2013 SG Standard comes with two switchable Gibson '57 Classic pickups onboard, to deliver all the classic tones that have made this instrument a legend.

Slender-Necked Beauty

The neck on the Gibson SG Standard adopts the slim-profile design that emerged in the later 1960s. This makes the neck notably slimmer than the rounded shape found on the 50s-era instruments. Staying true to the original 1961 SG design, nine trapezoidal inlays accent the bound rosewood fretboard. The headstock is finished to match the body. A mother-of-pearl Gibson logo inlaid at the center of the headstock stamps this instrument with a pedigree of peerless quality. The SG Standard's small black pickguard is a throwback to vintage SGs.

Solid Design for Tight Tone

The 24.75-inch-scale mahogany neck is glued in a deep-set, long-tenon neck/body joint with a 17-degree back-angled headstock. The body and neck are balanced to achieve perfect cross-transference of resonance where they meet at the 19th fret, sealed with Franklin Titebond 50 glue -- one of the strongest industrial wood glues in the world. A 1-11/16" wide Corian nut completes the equation. This solid neck-to-body jointing and precise alignment is something that you can distinctly feel as you play the 2013 SG Standard. "SG" stands for Solid Guitar, and its responsive action that you feel in your hands is why this instrument has a reputation for such playability -- musicians don't love it just for those cool little bat wings on top.

Classic Electronics With Subtle Updates

The Gibson SG Standard comes loaded with a pair of Gibson '57 Classic pickups -- popular recreations of Gibson's famous PAF humbucker of the late 1950s. With the three-way toggle switch and Tone and Volume knobs on each pickup, you can dial up everything from cool, clean blues tones to thrashing power chords. The stopbar tailpiece is matched perfectly with one of Gibson's legendary Tune-o-matic bridges, yielding maximal sustain and a distinctive singing tone. The ivory-colored tuning knobs display vintage styling through and through. A black hardshell case is included.

Features:

- Mahogany Back
- Mahogany Neck
- '60s slim profile neck design
- Bound 24-Fret rosewood fingerboard
- Trapezoidal inlays in fingerboard
- Vintage-style ivory-colored tuners
- 2 x Gibson '57 Classic Pickups with center pickup blend toggle switch

Customer Reviews
4.5 out of 5 (4 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Great Axe"
Overall: I love Gibson guitars! Not all of them just the really good ones. This is a good one, and a great American company. I must confess though that my first SG Min-ETune would not stay "in tune". I called Nashville and they were wonderful! Sent me a new guitar, a bag of goodies and WOW! This guitar is a blast. I love playing in open G, E and D. Two presses of a button, strum a few times and its in tune. Not magic. You are digitally tuning an analog instrument so just like using a tuner, it may take a little adjustment occasionally but it's pretty darn good. Even gets the Double Drop D Cinnamon Girl thing nailed quickly. Best of both worlds...an American made instrument and a digital tuning system. Just remember that the basics still hold true. Keep your strings fresh and a little Big Bends Nut Sauce goes a long way!

Overall: Received my Gibson SG Standard for 2013 in Natural Burst in a record 2 days regular free shipping from the guys at Zzounds ,and from the minute I opened it up,and through all the packing I could tell that this guitar would be pristine and it was....the smell from the new Gibson case just invigorates me to play! I've been playing guitar for 30 some odd years and never thought i'd see the day where my Gibson stays in tune and intonated as well.....I love them but have always had issues there and with this tuning system Minetune it's unbelievable! great guitar...good job Gibson and great payment program from Zzounds !!!
