SG Standard 2017 High Performance is simple, the absolute Standard only with beyond-standard features. The Gibson SG became an iconic electric guitar almost immediately since it's introduction in 1961, thanks to its combination of radical looks and performance-enhancing features. The SG Standard 2017 HP builds on that classic with a perfect blend of Tradition and Innovation. Its High Performance neck is more playable than ever, with a speedy slim-taper profile, a roomier Soloist's width, and Fast-Access heel.
Serious upgrades all around for the 2017 Gibson SG High Performance.
The impressive hardware set includes titanium saddles on a light aluminum Tune-O-Matic bridge for optimum clarity and sustain, with locking steel studs for unparalleled sonic transfer from strings to body, while great PAF-like '57 Classic and Classic+ pickups via high-quality electronics drive it all home.
Visual touches like white fingerboard binding, pearl trapezoid inlays, a classic teardrop pickguard, and chrome-plated hardware keep it all looking as good as it sounds. The SG Standard 2017 HP comes in a Gibson High Performance super premium stamped aluminum case, along with a Gibson premium leather strap, a Gibson multi-tool and a polishing cloth.
