An SG You'll Feel Like You've Owned Forever!

Enjoy the best of classic SG look, feel, and sound with this Gibson Custom Shop SG Standard. Gibson went back to the drawing board to create the most accurate vintage SG reproductions to date, creating an instrument that would capture the spirit of the original with the '61 SlimTaper neck most guitarists love. Every detail is as close to spot-on as possible, down to the long neck tenon and beveled mahogany body. This axe features an updated antique finish, classic hardware, a hide-glued neck, new truss rod and tuner designs, and vintage-style trapezoid fretboard inlays. No guitarist can deny the appeal of the Gibson Custom SG Standard.

  • CustomBucker pickups deliver vintage PAF tone
Updated vintage appointments are more authentic than ever

Gibson's Custom Shop guitars include appointments that add amazing authenticity and vintage vibe to their guitars. Necks are now attached using hide glue, which many argue sounds better than synthetic glue. Gibson Custom Shop re-engineered the truss rod, truss rod washer, and anchor to their original form. They also eliminated the tubing that surrounded the truss rod. Kluson Green Key tuners now feature proper vintage profile, color, and performance specifications. These features and others make the Gibson Custom Shop SG Standard one of the most accurate reproductions ever.

'61 SlimTaper neck feels great and provides exceptional playability

The Gibson SG Standard sports a comfortable, fast-action neck with a 1961 SlimTaper profile. Early Gibson guitars had huge and 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's SlimTaper neck provides you with a consistent, fast, and comfortable feel. It's no wonder many lifelong guitar players consider the SlimTaper to be Gibson's finest neck.

CustomBucker pickups deliver vintage PAF tone

Gibson Custom paid just as much attention to the SG Standard's electronics as they did to its aesthetics. Beginning with high-end potentiometers and capacitors, every part of its internal signal path is designed to give you absolutely dead-on SG tone. Of course, it's next to impossible to find genuine '50s PAFs (even for Gibson). Instead, the Custom Shop SG Standard sports a pair of Gibson's CustomBucker humbuckers. The CustomBucker is the most historically accurate PAF copy ever. You just won't find another SG that comes as close to the original look, sound, and feel of an SG Standard!
