Gibson's SG Standard P-90 solidbody electric guitar lets you own a slice of rock history.

This SG is the real deal, giving you genuine P-90 crunch and a rounded neck that's satisfying to get your hand around. The SG's lightweight mahogany body gives you great sustain and no pain, even if you play all night. Own a piece of rock history: the Gibson SG Standard P-90.

  • Nitrocellulose finish
  • PLEK'd for precision playability
P-90 single-coils onboard

The Gibson SG Standard P-90 is fitted with two P-90 pickups. Gibson's first successful single-coil pickup, the P-90 can be heard on countless classic recordings. With its biting treble and high output, the P-90 cleans up nicely when you roll back your guitar's volume pot. And when you hit your amp hard, the P-90 really wails. It's an amazingly versatile pickup (more so, arguably, than most humbuckers). Check out the Who's Live at Leeds to hear Pete Townsend coax a jaw-dropping range of tone out of his P-90 equipped SG.

SG-rounded profile mahogany neck

Gibson's SG Standard P-90 sports a comfortable, fast-action neck with a satisfyingly rounded profile. Whether you're chording down low or soloing up high, this taper always feels just right. With its harmonically-rich rosewood fingerboard and iconic double-horned cutaway that gives you access to all 22 frets, this SG's a lean, mean rock machine.

Nitrocellulose finish

The Gibson SG Standard P-90 wears a gorgeous nitrocellulose lacquer finish. Nitro finishes - standard back in the '60s and '70s - are significantly thinner than today's polyurethane finishes, allowing the guitar to "breathe." Nitro finishes not only look vintage-y wonderful; they also enhance the instrument's tonal qualities. And Sweetwater guitarists love the way they age, adding even more of a classic aura to this great guitar.

PLEK'd for precision playability

This Gibson SG Standard P-90 2016 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.
