The SG Standard

Classic Features on a Legendary Double-Cut

When the original Les Paul evolved into the Les Paul/SG Standard in 1961, the evolution embodied Les Paul's vision for a sleek, powerful, contemporary solidbody electric guitar. The single-cut Standard returned to the fold later in the decade, but the distinctive double-cutaway guitar--now simply known as the SG--stayed in the lineup too, and became a major rock and blues icon.

The new SG Standard embodies all the tone, feel, and look of the original rendition of this legendary guitar, with features such as a slim '60s profile neck with a smaller early '60s headstock, the original early '60s pickguard, dual '57 Classic humbucking pickups, and Gibson's innovative hardware, all wrapped into a design that remains one of the most versatile guitars available today. To top it off, the SG Standard displays classic looks in your choice of Heritage Cherry, Ebony, Classic White, or Natural Burst finish, all in high-gloss nitrocellulose lacquer.

Body and Finish

A solid Genuine 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. Mahogany is a medium-dense wood with excellent resonance and superior sustain, and it offers a rich, round, warm tone, but with plenty of high-end sheen and good midrange presence. The guitar's select Genuine Mahogany components ring with all the depth and richness you'd expect from a classic tonewood, and look great in your choice of nitrocellulose finish.

The SG Standard follows the classic lines of the SG of the early and mid-1960s. It has a beveled body edge for increased comfort, and slightly asymmetrical dual horns on its double-cutaway body, that not only look distinctive but also provide outstanding access to the upper frets.

Glued-in long-tenon neck. View larger

The SG Standard carries the Gibson 57 Classic humbucker, among Gibson's most popular Gibson PAF humbucker pickup recreations of all time. Both are designed as an updated rendition of Gibson's famous PAF humbucker of the late '50s and early '60s, modified for improved versatility, and routed through the classic Gibson two volume and two tone controls.

Used together, the Gibson 57 Classic make one of the most versatile humbucking pickup sets available. In the neck position, the 57 Classic yields juicy, warm vocal tones with outstanding clarity, while the 57 Classic in the bridge position excels at everything from bright jangle through a clean amp to wailing overdrive with near-infinite sustain through a high-gain amp. Selected together, the pair gives you everything from funky to greasy, depending upon amp and effects settings.

Neck, Headstock and Fingerboard

The SG Standard is crafted in classic Gibson style with a glued-in long-tenon neck made from solid quarter-sawn Genuine Mahogany and topped with a rosewood fingerboard. It has an angled headstock for superior resonance, and its rounded mid-'60s profile and 1-11/16"-wide Corian nut help to make is supremely playable.

Hardware

The hardware set on the SG Standard echoes that worn by SG Standards since the 1960s, and includes Gibson's hallowed Tune-o-matic bridge, stopbar tailpiece, and vintage-style tuners. A classic of 20th century guitar design, the Tune-o-matic provides excellent resonant coupling, while offering efficient independent adjustment of each saddle for precise intonation.
