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 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. Originally advertised as having the "fastest neck in the world," the Gibson SG is presently one of the most copied solidbody electric guitar models in the world.

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 move 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.

Gibson SG Standard T Solidbody Electric Guitar Features:
  • Solid mahogany body delivers copious sustain
  • Fast and comfortable SlimTaper neck profile
  • Thicker rosewood fingerboard for improved sonic depth and playability

I can pretend I'm Cream-era Clapton

I opened up the guitar case and that new guitar smell wafted up and hugged me. I picked up this light guitar and its slim taper mahogany neck and rosewood fingerboard felt perfect in my hands. I have never had a guitar feel so comfortable. Love the '57 classic humbuckers and they help me find that Cream-era Clapton tone that I want. It was set up perfectly right out of its case so I wasted no time in playing some riffs. I'm glad I held out for the perfect guitar and am very impressed with my first Gibson. Going to add a poker chip and strap locks to this beauty. Thanks to sales engineer Rob Kramer for all his help. He's always available to answer my questions and always kept me up to date on the availability of guitars. Sweetwater can expect my business for a long time.

I had briefly owned a 1972 sg for a few weeks in the early 80's,until it got stolen from the band van..It was irreplaceable until I had to have this one!! A fender player for years until this baby came along.Love it right out of the case,and it arrived the day Before Christmas!!

Sg standard 2017 T

Dreamt of owning this since I met Les Paul in 1968. It is amazing ...fastest smoothest fretboard I've ever played. It is just cherry sweet
5/5

Unbelievable for the price

I can't even say this enough. This guitar is incredible. I have no idea how you can get a better sound than these 57 humbucker pickups give you... wow.. I will have this forever. Unbelieable and comes with a nice Gibson strap awesome Gibson tool for maintenance and an amazIng hardshell case. Sand paper 800 grit the neck to take the sticky gloss finish off and now it's like a matte finish on the neck and it's soooo much better! I always have sticky hands so it made it fantastic! Buy this guitar!! Ryan Sloan was an amazing sales guy to talk to!

only a true iconic rock monster will get it done

Fit and finish are stunning but when it is ready to play right out of the box, only the best will do Gibson. Sam hillman at sweet water is the go to man for me, knowlegable, friendly, and willing to go the extra mile! As for my Gibson SG standard t the action and fret board are truly smooth while the slim taper neck is unbelievably fast. Controls operate perfect while body has a resonance to die for. The crown jewels that bring it all together are the 57 and the 57+ humbuckers give the perfect Pat tones. There is a rock god and this AX sits on his right side. This ax is legendary for many reasons and will reign as the best there is the best there was, and the best that will ever be. You really can't go wrong here, Thai you Sam Hillman at sweet water. Keep on rocking in the free world!!!!!.
