The Gibson SG. Every guitarist knows one when they see it. And with good reason. This Gibson SG Standard is a shining example of why these guitars are some of the most revered in the world. The sleek body, comfortable neck, and finely crafted contours make it a modern day king, and its tone is beyond exceptional. Two Gibson 490 humbuckers in the neck and bridge give it plenty of firepower and crisp, articulate tone for an exceptional sound. With them, you'll be rocking like the legends who used this model throughout the decades.

Classic design, modern features. This model is the perfect blend of old and new, offering the same playing experience which the SGs of old, but with modern day reliability. You'll feel those vintage vibes coming to your fingers as you make your way across the smooth, supreme fretboard. Whether you're into blues or straight up rock 'n' roll, this guitar will satisfy your every desire.

The ultimate classic
Unrivalled. It's appeared in countless bands over the years, in genres ranging from blues to hard rock and beyond. Having a thinner body than the Les Paul and offering a different playing experience altogether, the Gibson SG is an iconic guitar which revolutionised guitar design as we know it. Now you can experience the thrill of playing this fierce, fiery, flawless guitar, which has an updated design and features.

Modern pickups, vintage sound
The dream team of vintage style pickups, each humbucker in this SG Standard shines with vibrancy. There's a 490T in the bridge position, which is the perfect humbucker for rhythm chops. With an emphasised upper mid-range and treble response, it will give every note you play that crispness which takes your riffs to rock paradise. Your chords will sing with definition, and your licks will hum harmonically. In essence, your sound will ring like a bell, whether using crunchy gain or pristine clean settings.

Switch to the neck and it's a different sonic story. The 490R has slightly lower output, and makes lead wail with emotion. Your licks will sing to the stars, with a well-rounded response and superb articulation. In combination with four knobs for volume and tone control, as well as a simple toggle switch, your sound will be firmly in your hands.

Magic mahogany
A modern masterpiece. With a neck made from mahogany, this guitar is ready to give you every bit of playability you could ever want. It has a beautiful warm resonance, so your notes will be bathed in saturation and have a powerful, well-rounded ring. It also offers mountains of sustain for the ultimate sound when you’re bending notes and ploughing through chords.

Fretboard freedom
Liberate your licks. Rosewood is a special wood, and it makes for an immense fretboard. You'll find that its smoothness knows no bounds as your fingers fly along its pristine surface. Also offering a well-rounded resonance, your notes will leap out and electrify your ears when you play along this finely crafted wooden pathway.

Built for you
The modern player. For a classic guitar, The Gibson SG standard really is decked out with modern features. The aluminium Nashville Tune-O-Matic bridge and aluminium stop bar are top of the range, reliably keeping your string tuning and stability in check. A Graph Tech nut sits at the headstock end of the guitar, helping the strings reach the perfect resonance for that magical Gibson tone.

Ensuring the tuning is completely locked down, world class Grover Rotomatic tuners also provide a beautiful aesthetic to go with the headstock. Topped with a black 5-ply, full-face pickguard and mountains of pure charisma, the SG Standard has no equal.
