The Gibson SG Standard Electric Guitar, available at Guitar Center, is a rock legend reborn. Gibson has been shaping music for over 100 years, and their expertise shines through in this classic model. With a rounded-profile mahogany neck, bound 22-fret rosewood fretboard and solid mahogany body, the SG Standard delivers that iconic humbucker tone with singing sustain. The 490R and 490T Alnico II pickups provide the power to drive your amp to new heights. Brought to you by Guitar Center, this versatile rocker comes with a soft shell case so you can take the show on the road.

Bound Fretboard Promises Effortless Shredding

The SG Standard's bound rosewood fretboard is Plek'd for flawless fretwork, so you can blaze through solos at lightning speed. A 1.695"-wide nut and 24.75" scale length give strings ample room to vibrate, while the fretboard's 12" radius and medium jumbo frets make chord shapes and string bends a breeze.

Stable Construction Keeps Your Ax in Tune

At the heart of the SG Standard's sustain and resonance is its solid mahogany body and long-tenon 19th-fret neck joint. This construction is lighter than a carved maple top but provides exceptional tonal qualities. A rounded-profile mahogany neck also contributes to the guitar's playable feel and warm, balanced tone. With high-quality components like an aluminum Nashville Tune-o-matic bridge, stopbar tailpiece and Grover Rotomatic tuners with keystone buttons, the SG Standard stays in tune through the most intense performances.

PAF-Inspired Pickups Power Your Sound

The SG Standard is loaded with 490R and 490T Alnico II humbucking pickups modeled after Gibson's original PAFs. These pickups deliver a perfect blend of warmth, clarity and articulation. Two volume and two tone controls, along with a three-way toggle selector, provide ample tonal versatility to suit any genre.

Iconic Styling and Premium Appointments

With its distinctive double-cutaway body and full-face pickguard, the SG Standard makes a bold visual statement. Premium touches include black top hat knobs, chrome-plated hardware and pearloid dot inlays. Available in Heritage Cherry, this guitar looks as killer as it sounds.
