Overview

Over the years, Gibson has offered many iterations of the SG, but none has stuck around quite like the Gibson SG Standard. After its introduction as a replacement to the Les Paul in 1961, the SG's sharp, striking double-cut, beveled edges, and solid mahogany body, have all placed the SG squarely in the realm of legendary solidbody guitars. Though it was called the Les Paul after its initial production, the moniker was dropped in preference to SG. The SG Standard remains one of Gibson's most popular guitars and one of the brand's top-selling models since its release used by by players like Tony Iommi, Jeff Tweedy, and Angus Young. The Gibson SG Standard has seen many evolutions, existing and enduring through different additions and subtractions, but still remains one of the most iconic Gibson guitars.

The body shape is back to the original. It's larger, solid and built strong. Baked maple i…

  • Very versatile guitar

    Verified Purchase

    Specifically a 2016. Very light weight compared to other gibsons I've played. Action is very comfortable and guitar is quite easy to setup and intonation is very simple to get nearly perfect. I specifically bought to play more bluesy rock and doom metal on vs my schecter with EMGs for the thrashy st…

    Great service and shipped right away. The guitar was very good on intonation and very clean. The Bare Knuckle Nailbomb pickups are great! Little ground buzz on the pickup selector nut, but addressing that separately.

  • Needed work but great

    Verified Purchase

    A great guitar. Does exactly what you'd expect. Needed a fret dress, they were far too high, but now plays like a dream. Standard traditional - spot on... all you'll ever need. I'm not impressed with the gig bag but that's a minor criticism.
