The Gibson 2016 SG Standard Electric Guitar in Cherry is one of the most iconic guitars that Gibson has produced. Its well-loved shape and profile has made it an incredibly popular choice amongst guitarists of all styles since its creation in 1961. This 2016 traditional rendition pays tribute to the SG's roots to give a whole new generation of players a touch of vintage class.
Double-cutaway Body Profile
The body is crafted from solid mahogany and has bevelled edges along with a double cutaway meaning the SG Standard 2016 gets naturally close to your body and opens up the ability to hit the highest of notes. The body is then finished in a gloss lacquer which compliments the finish excellently.
The neck of the Gibson SG Standard 2016 Electric Guitar is also made with premium quality mahogany. This is then shaped to the SG slim profile that so many guitarists know and love. This is then topped off with a cream bound rosewood fingerboard sporting classic pearl trapezoid positional inlays and the all-important 22 frets. The playing experience is fast and smooth as you would expect from a Gibson. The headstock is home to traditional green tuning machines, which uphold tuning integrity with precision.
Traditional pickup power
To give the Gibson SG Standard 2016 its versatile, powerhouse of a sound, you get a 490R humbucker in the neck position and a 498T in the bridge position, both with alnico magnets offering a rich and customisable tone to impress players of many styles. For total control, each pickup has its own independent tone and volume controls as well as the 3-way master pickup selection switch.
The Gibson 2016 SG Standard Electric Guitar in Cherry has been equipped with premium hardware to ensure a reassuringly sturdy feel. Fitted to the body is a chrome tune-o-matic bridge and stopbar tailpiece, which create a resilient partnership that upholds intonation dutifully, whilst guaranteeing a hearty sustain. Protecting the body top around the pickups is a multi-ply black pickguard.
The Gibson 2016 SG Standard Electric Guitar is to be treasured and delivers versatility with vintage appeal. Every model is supplied with a Gibson gig bag to keep your new pride and joy safe and sound.
