Classic Double-Cutaway Body
The 2016 SG Standard is shaped to the instantly recognisable double-cutaway "horns" body shape, with a super slim body that is a delight to wield. Creating the SG's substantial mid to low-end character comes down to the adoption of mahogany as the body tonewood, which is held in high regard thanks to its rich and colourful timbre. The bevelled edges of the body create a natural resting position for the guitar sit against you during performances, increasing the level of comfort afforded by this beautiful model.
The body is completed in a stylish heritage cherry finish, which has been treated to a coating of nitrocellulose to preserve it 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.
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.
The Gibson 2016 SG Standard P-90 T Electric Guitar is armed with traditional tuning machines, which uphold tuning integrity with absolute precision whilst you rock out. 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.
