The Gibson 2019 SG Standard Tribute Electric Guitar boasts the same feel, fit, finish and tones that has made it such a legendary model. Whether you're jamming with friends or taking to the stage, the 2019 SG Standard Tribute it perfect for those who need an affordable model but don't want to compromise on quality. 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 Tribute is built to the instantly recognisable double-cutaway "horns" body shape that we've all come to know and love. Crafted using mahogany to establish that deep and enduring midrange energy with articulate bite, the slim depth and sleek contours of the SG combine to create a joyful playing experience. The Standard Tribute has been treated to a satin nitrocellulose lacquer finish to guarantee the smoothest possible playing feel.
Lightning fast neck
Connected to the body is a supple and supportive maple neck, which is shaped to the substantial yet manageable rounded profile for a reassuring feel. The neck extends along a generous 24.75-inch scale length to encourage consistent tension across the strings whilst evoking a warm response from every note. Married to the neck is a luxurious rosewood fingerboard, which is home to 22 cryogenically-treated low frets with acrylic dot position inlays to guide your way in understated fashion. The 12-inch fingerboard radius lends itself well to accommodating seamless technique from lightning fast legato to smooth slide, whilst the satin nitrocellulose finish prevents unwanted stickiness or tackiness from impeding your fretting hand's movement.
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 vintage deluxe tuning machines with keystone buttons to uphold 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.
