The Gibson 2016 SG Standard P-90 HP Electric Guitar in Heritage Cherry, is a gorgeous rendition of the classic double-cutaway "horns" design that has been the weapon of choice for many guitar legends. Since its launch back in 1961, the SG has been utilised by players in every musical genre from country to heavy metal, lending its articulate beauty to countless recordings. In keeping with its predecessors, the 2016 SG Standard P-90 HP delivers cool and sophisticated tones with the gritty characater that can only come from a pair of P-90 pickups.
Classic Double-Cutaway Body
The foundation of the 2016 SG Standard's bold mid to low-end presence is laid down by the mahogany body, which produces a substantial energy without becoming muddy or overpowering the tone. The combination of smoothly bevelled edges and deep double-cutaways makes the SG a dream guitar for players of all shapes and sizes, allowing allcomers to perform in total comfort.
The body is completed in a stylish heritage cherry finish, which has been treated to a coating of hi-gloss 90 sheen lacquer in order to preserve it in all its glory for as long as possible. Further protection to the body top around the pickups comes in the form of a black pickguard with white trim.
Sturdy Mahogany Neck
Into this magnificent body has been glued a solid mahogany neck, which is quarter-sawn for superior strength whilst optimising resonance. The neck is carved to the slim '60s profile, which accommodates lightning fast playing styles and rewards fearless players. Paired with the neck is a rosewood fingerboard containing 22 medium-jumbo frets with trapezoid position inlays to guide your way.
Recreating the great vintage tones of the SG Standard are a pair of P-90 single-coil pickups, which are renowned for their sophisticated vintage tones that offer everything from smooth cleans to gritty snarl that breaks up nicely when pushed at high volumes. Pair these beauties with your favourite amp, crank up the volume and get playing.
Control over the pickups comes in the form of a three-way pickup selector switch, as well as independent volume and tone controls for each pickup. The versatility of this arrangement gives you a huge tonal arsenal to play with, making it perfect for players who need a flexible model for executing blues, country, jazz, slide, and rock tones.
G FORCE Tuning System
The Gibson 2016 SG Standard P-90 HP Electric Guitar is armed with Gibson's G FORCE tuning system, which allows you to adjust your tuning at the touch of a button. When you're performing the tuners remain firmly in place so that you can rock out in total confidence. The tune-o-matic bridge and stopbar tailpiece partnership holds each string in place firmly to optimise intonation and sustain, and can be adjusted with ease to vary the string action to suit your playing needs.
Each model is supplied with its own HP hard shell case to protect your new pride and joy wherever your music takes you.
