When the original Les Paul evolved into the Les Paul/SG Standard in 1961, the evolution embodied Les Paul's vision for a sleek, powerful, contemporary, solid body electric guitar. The distinctive new double-cutaway guitar-now simply known as the SG-was an overnight success, and became a major rock and blues icon by the late '60s. This 2016 SG Standard T comes in a beautiful Ebony finish and 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. The thin, lightweight mahogany body has the classic beveled edge for playing comfort, and delivers superb resonance and sustain through 490R and 498T humbuckers.
Features common to Gibson USA's 2016 Traditional range include our original neck width of 1 11/16th at the nut, historic neck heel shape, standard high-quality manual tuners.
A traditional Graph Tech nut, and a thicker one-piece rosewood fingerboard with a hand-rubbed oil finish for a plush look and feel.
Put it together, and it's superb value in an American-made Gibson guitar that takes you straight to that classic '60s vibe.
