The Gibson 2019 SG Standard Electric Guitar boasts the features that established this model as a firm favourite for players across all genres from country to heavy metal. Each model is supplied with a Gibson softshell case, as well as a Gibson accessory kit to ensure that you can keep yours in mint condition.
Classic double-cutaway body
The 2019 SG Standard adheres to the classic double-cutaway "horns" body shape that we've all come to know and love. The super-slim body depth pairs beautifully with the curvy shape and bevelled edges to establish a playing feel unlike any other. The body is crafted using mahogany, which establishes a rich energy with emphasised midrange to deliver that characteristic SG "bite". The body has been treated to a resilient coating of gloss nitrocellulose lacquer, which preserves the finish whilst affording a smooth playability.
Lightning fast neck
Joined to the body is a solid mahogany neck, which is shaped to the delightful slim taper profile to guarantee a sleek and comfortable feel in the fretting hand. The neck extends along a generous 24.75-inch scale length to encourage consistency of feel as well as a warm character from every note. Married to the neck is a luxurious rosewood fingerboard, which is home to 22 cryogenically-treated low frets with acrylic trapezoid position inlays to guide your way. The 12-inch fingerboard radius lends itself well to accommodating seamless technique from lightning fast legato to smooth slide.
490R and 490T pickups
The 2019 SG Standard is equipped with a pair of pickups that are designed to resurrect the authentic tones of the original '60s model. In the neck is a 490R humbucker, which is an Alnico II magnet driven beauty that produces lush, saturated tones that are fantastic for smooth bluesy styles. The 490T humbucker in the bridge treats your tone with the same courtesy, extending a helpful hand to guarantee that your leads and solos soar to the heavens with unparalleled clarity. Control over your tone comes in the form of independent volume and tone pots for each pickup, as well as a three-way pickup selector switch for rapid adjustment between the neck and bridge pickups.
The body is home to the tried and trusted aluminium Nashville tune-o-matic bridge and stopbar tailpiece, which anchor each string securely for a seamless connection that upholds intonation and sustain. The headstock is equipped with Grover Rotomatics with kidney buttons to maintain tuning integrity with absolute precision. A classic black 5-ply full face pickguard adds additional protection from pickscrapes around the strings and below the pickups.
