The Gibson 2016 SG Standard Traditional is a guitar that oozes rock'n'roll tradition, and come with great, traditional specs such as traditional tuners and historically accurate neck width.
A real rock'n'roll tone monsterAn all-mahogany tonewood used for the body follows the original design specification of the 60s SG, with a thin mahogany neck topped with a rosewood fingerboard. Gibson have counterbalanced the traditionally heavy weight of Mahogany with an ultra-thin flat top wood finish for an extremely comfortable playing set-up.
490R and 498T humbuckers offer traditionally smooth tonal response, but allow you to really crank the gain for that vintage top-end bite of the standard SG, great for those loud and crunchy lead sounds employed by the likes of Eric Clapton, Angus Young and Frank Zappa.
This new model embodies all the tone, feel, and look of the original rendition of this legendary guitar, all wrapped into a design that remains one of the most versatile guitars available today.
