The Gibson 2016 SG Standard HP Electric Guitar 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 HP rendition pays tribute to the SG's vintage class, but adds a next generation automated tuning system.
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 HP 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.
Traditional pickup power
To give the Gibson SG Standard HP 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 HP Electric Guitar has been equipped with premium hardware to ensure a reassuringly sturdy feel. Fitted to the body is a chrome tune-o-matic bridge with titanium saddles, which creates a resilient partnership that upholds intonation dutifully, whilst guaranteeing a hearty sustain. Protecting the body top around the pickups is a multi-ply pickguard.
G-Force Tuning System
Fitted to the headstock are the next generation Gibson G-FORCE tuning machines which allow you to retune your strings with pure simplicity thanks to the built-in servo motors in each key that detect the strings’ vibrations and alter the tuning accordingly. The G-FORCE machines work quietly even when used manually, and it has an easy-to-read lit up display at the back of the headstock so that you can even retune on a dark stage.
For a mix of the traditional with cutting edge technology all in one rock-solid package, the Gibson 2016 SG Standard HP Electric Guitar is all you need.
