Gibson SG Standard Electric Guitar (with Soft Case)

For absolutely classic, searing rock tone, look no further than the Gibson SG Standard. Its mahogany body and 490 pickups create long sustain and tonal bite.

What's special about this item?

Feature: What it does:
490R and 490T humbucking pickups PAF-style tone with bump in upper midrange
Gloss nitrocellulose lacquer finish Lets guitar age naturally without impeding tone
Mahogany body Rich, warm, focused sound; added sustain
Rosewood fretboard Open, warm tone and smooth playing feel

The Gibson SG Standard rocks the classic looks and features associated with the late '60s style SG models sought after by many. A rounded profile mahogany neck, bound rosewood fingerboard, long tenon 19th fret neck joint, and a solid mahogany body provide the backbone for singing sustain. The 490R and 490T Alnico II pickups provide the power to drive. A black, 5-ply, full-face pickguard set this SG Standard apart from others... a truly versatile classic.

I received mg SG yesterday, intiatially I was going to wait awhile to write this review until I’ve really had a chance to bond with it but it’s already happened. I chose the Heritage Cherry, and I’m really glad that I did because it just shows off how aesthetically beautiful that this instrument really is. I could not find a flaw at all on it anywhere. It literally is perfect, the hardware was also snug and everything well aligned. I’ve been hesitant to buy anything new from Gibson because of the horror stories that I’ve heard about their past issues. Definitely not the case with this one at all. Setup right out of the box was low and is exactly where I would’ve want it set at anyways. From the pickups to the action everywhere on the neck it is absolutely flawless and is the easiest playing guitar I have by far. I own an 1988 Les Paul Custom, 1972 Fender Strat, 2011 Fender Telecaster and a 2020 PRS Custom 24. Speaking of well playing, this guitar is resonant AF not even plugged in. Was worried it’d be rather lifeless due to the low weight of the guitar but I was wrong. Plugged in, she is a beast. Loud and articulate. Sounds fantastic and the controls are so responsive. All in all, I am so happy with this buy and can’t wait to get another Gibson in the future hoping I have the same luck.Only thing I am not happy with is getting a gig bag for such a high end instrument. I mean, it’s useable but it should definitely come with the SG hard case. Buy this guitar! read more
