The Gibson SG is one of the most iconic guitars on the planet that represents the transition from Rock'n'Roll to Rock and other styles that followed. The 2013 SG Standard continues this tradition, offering the same lightweight mahogany body and fast-playing slim profile neck that made it extremely popular upon their first launch decades ago. A pair of '57 Classic humbucker pickups deliver an instantly recognisable hard-hitting PAF tone that players of all styles will find a use for. This Gibson SG Standard gives you the smooth feel and fast action of Gibson's SG slim profile neck. Early Les Pauls had huge necks, but by 1960 the neck underwent several modifications, eventually becoming the standard SlimTaper carve. This SG Standard takes the evolution of fast Gibson guitar neck carves one step farther, making this the fastest off-the-shelf SG ever designed. And when you add to that the ultra-smooth feel of its bound rosewood fingerboard, you get the best of both comfort and performance from the 2013 Gibson SG Standard.
