Includes Gibson hard Case
The Gibson SG actually began life in 1961 as the "new and improved" Les Paul. However, the guitar eventually got a new name: The SG, which stood for "Solid Guitar." It was actually a big success for Gibson - obviously the right design for the times. Most SGs were finished in Cherry, which was all the rage in the '60s, however, some were produced in either solid black or white. The original SG Standard was actually at the top of the SG "food chain" back in the '60s, though it still sold well because it delivered all the features most guitarists wanted in terms of playability and sound. Today's SG Standard has changed little from those original guitars. It still has two humbuckers with chrome covers and the larger (and in our opinion) better looking pickguard.
The early Les Pauls had huge necks, but by 1960 the neck underwent several modifications until it became what's known as the slim-taper design. The SG took it one step farther, making the neck among the fastest ever designed. If you like the combination of a wide but thin mahogany neck with the warmth of a rosewood fingerboard, you'll love the SG Standard.
Two Fat, Smoking Humbuckers
When you really want to cook on a solo or deliver some thunderous power chords, you reach for a sound that is all about the warmth, punch and midrange complexity you can only get from a pair of Gibson humbuckers. The SG Standard comes with a pair of chrome covered 'buckers: a 490R in the neck position and a 498T in the bridge position for uncompromising power.
