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.

Clarification on the 4star rating

It would've been a 5 if they didn't have that PCB board... Get one... Modify it... It sounds so much better. Inexpensive. This SG is. Winner..... The neck is stable and the Plek job is amazing.. The rolled edges on the board are sweet and should've been done years ago!!!

Great Axe!

Great guitar for the price! Love the sound and the finish! It had scratches on the side of the fret board when I received it. I sent it back and within 4 days a new one arrived. The customer service form Mark Chapman was excellent! My only gripe is the Tektoid nut. I will eventually install a bone nut. Which should be on it anyway. I will always do business with Sweet water. Customer service is the best around! Thank you!

2017 SG Standard

This is a certified player. The neck on my SG is amazing. Fast and smooth. Frets were perfect and zero buzz. The fit and finish were also very good. There is a PCB board in the cavity for your pups. I switched that out with an Emerson Customs SG pre wire. This made it a great guitar. I went ahead and dressed it up with a new switch cap, top hat knobs, pointers and a treble/bass switch plate. Sweet axe... Best that Gibson has produced in a long time.. Best SG I've ever owned or played. Great deal on a great axe.
