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.

"The Gibson SG is a Boss"
Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
I’ve had several different quality brand guitars over the past few years, and I feel like the build quality on all of them is very good. However, when you play a Gibson, you’ve got the real deal. This is my first SG and the light weight is fantastic, it makes my two Les Paul‘s feel like boat anchors, and they both have the modern weight relief! The rosewood neck and frets are perfect; I prefer locking tuners, but these hold their tune very well. The paint and overall finish is excellent, and finally I love the smell of the nitrocellulose. I have a Les Paul Standard which cost $1,000 more than the SG and I can’t hear the difference in price or quality. The 490R and 491T pickups have a great classic rock sound; the low end is not muddy and they’re very full and rich. And finally, the SG is played by the great Angus Young! What more do you need!
