In 1961 when the original SG was born, it was initially designed to be a replacement for the Les Paul. Unlike the Les Paul, the SG has a double cutaway, innovative for its time, and it was met with instant fame. The 2017 SG Standard Traditional model remains the leader of the modern SG range, combining quintessential SG sound and appearance with up-to-date appointments and playing feel.


The most recognisable feature of the Gibson SG is its double-horned cutaway body, a feature which made it stand out among previous Gibson guitars at the time of its creation. In line with history, the 2017 SG Standard T body is constructed from mahogany, a popular choice of tonewood for the Gibson luthiers thanks to its superb sound delivery.


A single-piece mahogany neck is securely joined to the body via a traditional Mortis and Tenon joint using the most reliable Franklin Titebond 50 adhesive. The neck is shaped to the Slim Taper profile, offering faster, more comfortable playability.

The neck is topped with a 12 inch radius rosewood fingerboard with 22 frets, all are readily available thanks to the body's double cutaway. The rosewood is thicker than usual, contributing to the overall sonic depth of the SG. The frets are also decorated with traditional white trapezoid inlays to guide you. Gibson have included a Tektoid nut that is self-lubricating for a better return to pitch and improved sustain.


The 2017 SG Standard T is kitted out with a pair of '57 Classic humbucker pickups powered by the outstanding Alnico II magnets. As soon as you plug in and play, the two humbuckers work relentlessly together to give you that classic PAF-style Gibson tone.

As with many Gibson models, the 2017 SG Standard T features the four-knob control setup for rhythm and lead Volume and Tone. The knobs have classic black tophats and are accompanied by a 3-way pickup toggle switch.


The headstock has a traditional appearance, with a black and white bell truss rod cover with "SG" stamped on, alongside the usual Gibson logo decal and crown. For total tuning accuracy, the SG is equipped with locking Grover Kidney-button tuners with a precise 14:01 gear ratio.

The body is fitted with a traditional chrome-plated aluminium Tune-o-Matic bridge and an aluminium Stop Bar tailpiece for exceptional sustain and resonance.

The 2017 SG Standard T model features a smaller teardrop-style black pickguard, similar to that found on the models released throughout the early 1960s' SGs. To enable the owner to keep the SG well looked after, Gibson include a hardshell brown case with the purchase, as well as a strap and polishing cloth to get you performance-ready right away.
