Classic Style and Hallowed PAF Tone
The Gibson SG Standard T solidbody electric guitar is a favorite with rock, blues, and jazz players everywhere. Its double-cutaway mahogany body delivers all of the resonance you'd expect from a classic instrument. A set of '57 Classic humbuckers yields vintage PAF-style tones by the truckload. Wrapping your hand around this guitar's mahogany SlimTaper neck is a joy, and its new thicker rosewood fingerboard exhibits a richer tone and makes bending incredibly smooth. Locking Grover kidney-button tuners are durable and precise. A self-lubricating TekToid nut enhances your sustain and provides an accurate return to pitch. A small teardrop pickguard adds a touch of vintage vibe to the Gibson SG Standard T solidbody electric guitar.
Plek'd for precision playability
This SG Standard 2017 T feels fast and precise, thanks in large part to Plek processing. Typically reserved for top-dollar custom guitars, this process levels the frets with pinpoint precision, providing you with the most playable fretboard you're likely to own. Each note rings loud and clear, and the fret edges feel smooth as silk.The Gibson SG — a brief history
In the early 1960s, Gibson sought to bolster its reputation as a quality builder of electric solidbody guitars in the midst of slow sales of their now-iconic Les Paul. Originally intended as a new model of the Les Paul, this new design failed to obtain the endorsement of Les Paul himself, and as such was renamed the SG (Solid Guitar). The newly minted Gibson SG was thinner than the Les Paul, with two cutaways, pointed horns, beveled edges, and no body binding.SlimTaper neck feels great and provides exceptional playability
The Gibson SG Standard T sports a comfortable, fast-action neck with a SlimTaper profile. Early Gibson guitars had huge, often ungainly necks. By 1960, Gibson had gradually carved down this profile into what became their SlimTaper neck. As your fingers moved down this neck, the precisely controlled width-to-thickness ratio of the SG Standard T's SlimTaper neck provides you with a consistent, fast, and comfortable feel. It's no wonder many lifelong guitar players consider the SlimTaper Gibson's finest neck.Powerful, punchy pickups plus killer appointments
Two of Gibson's best-loved humbuckers amongst Sweetwater guitarists — a '57 Classic in the neck position, and a '57 Classic Plus in the bridge — give the Gibson SG Standard T the power, punch, and clarity of Gibson's legendary PAF pickups. Other traditional appointments include a small teardrop pickguard, locking Grover kidney-button tuners, and a chromed aluminum Tune-o-matic bridge and stopbar.
