What We Think
The new 2019 High Performance SG is a tone monster! With its AA maple top it looks just as good as it sounds. The body of this guitar is solid Mahogany as is the neck. The fingerboard is Richlite and is 2.31” in end-of-board width, which means it’s a fast playing neck. The top nut width is 1.745”. The guitar just plays so well and is great for soloing, the sound of the Bustbucker lead pro and Bustbucker rhythm pro pickups are so powerful and certainly pack a punch. The guitar comes with a Gibson hardcase as well as certificate, multi-tool and cleaning cloth to complete the package.
The smoothest playing SG yet. The Gibson SG Standard HP 2019, Trans Ebony Fade is a guitar sent directly from the rock music gods. Building on the foundations of the legendary SG that has been around since the 60s, this high performance offering provides all of the classic SG power and intensity, finely tuned in one of the most playable instruments from the Gibson line-up.
Benefit from untethered, meaty tones with the Standard HP's Burstbucker Pro pickups that allow you to create the perfect rock sound. The high performance SG is also ideal for soloing, thanks to a high-tech richlite fretboard. Bends are smoother, easier, and significantly less damaging to strings thanks to the richlite's sleekness, which also improves the overall sound by enhancing sustain. The SG is a legend present in the music of everyone from AC/DC to The Beatles, Jimi Hendrix to Black Sabbath, and Lynyrd Skynyrd to Radiohead. This high performance model will ensure that that legend goes on and on.
Solo with complete freedom with the SG Standard HP, thanks to a super smooth richlite fretboard that took Gibson almost two decades to develop. The wood-based material is stronger and more consistent than ebony or rosewood, not to mention cleaner. This means you can bend and experiment as much as you like without difficulty. Furthermore, richlite is resistant to high temperatures, scratches, warping, and stains. You can be assured that this fretboard will remain of the highest quality no matter how much you use your guitar or where you take it. Ideal for even the most hectic touring schedules.
Make unwanted feedback a thing of the past. The high performance SG lets you experiment extensively with your sound without ever ruining clarity. Burstbucker Pro humbucking pickups are the cutting edge of eliminating unwelcome noise. They allow you to create powerful, robust rock tones that cut through a mix with swagger, attitude and aggression. Industry-leading projection means that every note of every solo or chord you play will stand out and sparkle.
Never compromise on choice. Tonal possibilities are endless with the SG HP. Two push/pull tone and two push/pull volume knobs enable you to experiment with your Burstbucker Pro humbucking pickups to craft a limitless range of unique sounds and voices. The science behind the push/pull knobs allows you to isolate individual coils within individual pickups. This gives you amazing versatility. An isolated single coil in the bridge pickup can create beautifully clear and sharp tones ideal for soloing. All four push/pull knobs fully pushed in can give you a much broader, meatier sound. You'll never run out of tones to play with.
Fret design can make or break your guitar. Poorly thought out placing and sizing can severely alter your playing. The SG Standard High Performance has expertly designed frets to ensure playability is at the optimum level, giving you the freedom to play creatively and without restraint. Fret over binding increases fret size in comparison to traditional frets. This gives you more space to work with, making bending and wavering strings much easier. Not only is your playing area increased, but fret wear is eliminated by Gibson's cryogenic treating. Every single detail has been focused on to ensure the final product is a guitar at the zenith of performance.
The SG is interwoven with the history of rock. From when Gibson first introduced the model in the early 1960s, the guitar quickly established itself as the perfect instrument across all rock genres. George Harrison used one to create clean and jangly tones on The Beatles' Revolver. AC/DC's Angus Young created the electrifying riffs and dirty licks that catapulted the band to rock superstardom with an SG. Thom Yorke used one for Radiohead's ethereal, moody, genre-hopping releases from the turn of the 21st century. This high-performance version is immensely versatile, and will suit your playing, no matter the style.
Gibsons are the peak of quality. Each and every hand-made guitar is crafted with care and attention to ensure immense playabilty and lasting high standards. The SG Standard HP guitar takes this principle to the next level. Every component has been designed to maintain an unparalleled level of performance long into the future. And this longevity is increased further by the inclusion of a Gibson Premium Composite Hardshell case. This provides sturdy and resilient protection for your instrument, wherever you go with it.
