The Epiphone SG Standard electric guitar delivers the sound and style that shaped rock music. Epiphone recreates the legendary 1960s classic with an all-mahogany body and neck for a warm, resonant tone. Powerful Alnico Classic PRO humbuckers provide the grit and growl that hard rock and heavy metal players crave. With its timeless "batwing" pickguard and fast-playing neck, the Epiphone SG Standard looks, feels and sounds like a classic should.

All-Mahogany Body and Neck

The Epiphone SG Standard's solid mahogany body and SlimTaper mahogany neck provide depth, richness and sustain. Mahogany's dense grain helps the guitar resonate fully, giving chords complex harmonics and lead lines singing sustain. The fast, comfortable neck profile makes it easy to blaze through solos at any position on the 22-fret Indian laurel fretboard.

High-Output Humbuckers

A pair of open-coil Alnico Classic PRO humbucking pickups deliver the output and overdrive rock players crave. The neck pickup provides a warm, rounded tone perfect for complex chords and emotive lead lines. The bridge pickup has tighter bass and crisp highs ideal for aggressive rhythm playing and searing solos. Individual volume and tone controls for each pickup allow you to shape your tone.

Rock-Solid Hardware

Grover Rotomatic tuners keep the Epiphone SG Standard in tune through the most extreme rock outs. A Tune-O-Matic bridge and stopbar tailpiece anchor the strings firmly for maximum resonance and sustain. High-quality electronic components from CTS and Switchcraft withstand the rigors of the road. A Graph Tech nut improves tuning stability for accurate intonation up and down the neck.

Iconic Style

The Epiphone SG Standard's double-cutaway mahogany body and distinctive "batwing" pickguard are instantly recognizable. Cream binding, trapezoid inlays and chrome hardware complete the vintage vibe. Available in a Cherry, Ebony or Alpine White finish, this guitar looks as killer as it sounds.
