The Gibson SG Standard Fireburst 2015 is the new version of the classic model, with added modern features. As ever, it feels and sounds great, of course! Since it was introduced in 1961, the SG has proved to be a great rock'n'roll guitar, with many players - especially in heavy rock - falling for its powerful sound. From Eric Clapton (Cream) to Tony Iommi (Black Sabbath), Angus Young (AC/DC) and even The Beatles, the SG guitar has made its mark in pop and rock music.
The SG is a younger sibling to the Les Paul and missed out on one of the most famous eras of production in the 50's. However Gibson have been kind enough to recreate the specifications of the famous '57 era humbuckers and stick them in the SG Standard. Lean and mean SG sound with the full fat, creamy bucker tone of the 50's.
Originally conceived as a more stripped back guitar the SG has come into it's own with the full range of 2015 hardware. Including the G Force tuners and Zero Fret Adjustable Nut that make tuning, intonation and alteration a complete doddle. Make the SG Standard your main axe on stage with easy alternative tunings and perfect setup every time.
With a Slim Taper neck the SG Standard offers a familiar feel thats smoother and faster than ever thanks to improved finishing on the fretboard. Widening the neck gives a more contemporary profile that suits a big range of players.
