Gibson SG Standard 2019 Guitar Ebony

Please Note Actual Softcase May Vary 

What We Think

The Gibson SG Standard 2019, built up of the classic look, playability, and tone of the legendary 1960’s, ‘Solid Guitar’. Its dual humbuckers produce an instantly recognisable sound like no other! The guitar features a slim taper neck complimented by a bound rosewood fretboard making the guitar extremely playable and a traditional mahogany body for great sustain! A truly versatile classic! Available here at Rimmers Music in Bolton.

Lightweight, easy to play, and iconic in looks. The 2019 Gibson SG Standard continues the lineage of the classic SG. Featuring a bound rosewood fingerboard and a rounded mahogany neck profile, the SG feels solid in the hand. The Gibson 490T and 490R release a torrent of classic blues and classic rock tones in a cranked amp but also have a warmth and sweetness with a gentler volume. After playing live you won't be exhausted from lugging this around your neck but from throwing yourself about whilst playing it. 

Playability

With a slim taper neck and access right to the last fret. The SG is one of the easiest guitars to play and has a neck Gibson regarded as the ‘fastest in the world’. A slim taper ‘’C’’ profile and a flatter fingerboard accommodate a faster playing style. Combined with its distinctive horns, players have comfortable access to the whole neck - a shredders delight.

The SG isn’t just for rock guitarists who want to destroy their fretboard. It’s also for players with smaller hands and people who didn’t want to struggle with larger necks. The SG opened up the guitar to so many more people who would have otherwise not picked up an electric guitar.

Modern/Classic Pickups

The Late ‘60s had a much louder sound spilling out of clubs and venues. With the need for a more versatile pickup, Gibson evolved the original PAF to deal with the larger amplifiers that started taking over stages. Gibson started wax potting their pickups to reduce the microphonic feedback. Now being able to overwind these PAFs without the feedback, you have access to more output and a crunchier midrange and still retaining the responsive, full-bodied tone that made the original PAF so desirable.

Tone

Known for its distinctive midrange growl, the SG sound is incredibly explosive. Unique to the SG is its super shallow neck pocket, utilised to musical effect by Pete Townshend. He used to shake his SG to create unique vibrato sounds and manipulate feedback. The SG has a rich and deep tone when pushed through a valve amp, with a lot of upper mid-range, perfect for getting that classic rock tone. The neck pickup demonstrates how mellow and articulate the SG can be proving this is more than just a ‘rock’ guitar.

History and Prestige

Thom Yorke, Tonni Iommi, Daron Malakian, and Frank Zappa all champion the SG – all showcasing its versatility. SG standing for Solid Guitar was Gibson’s effort to push sales in the ‘60s it delivered heavily. Gibson regards the SG as the best-selling model of all time. It's arguable that SG started heavy metal, being played by Tonni Iommi on Black Sabbaths first album in 1970. How iconic can you get?

Originally answering the criticisms of the Les Pauls weight problem, ended up selling more than 6,000 units in its early years compared to the Les Pauls 1700 units. Gibson expanded its brand and got competitive putting new instruments into the hands of players.

“I tried a Les Paul when I was a lot younger and because of the weight of the thing it nearly dislocated my hip” – Angus Young (AC/DC)

Kids saw the Les Paul as your grandad’s guitar, and Buddy Holly secured the Strat as a teen icon, so The Gibson the SG set out to mix things up.
