The set of '57 Classic humbuckers provide the SG with a vintage-styled hollow PAF tone, while independent volume and tone controls allows players to dial in a range of versatile sounds. The addition of a DIP switch and push/pull functions expand the SG Standard's tonal capabilities, creating an instrument that can keep up with any playing style.

The high-performance Gibson SG delivers an elegant twist to the Standard series guitar, adding a stunning AA grade figured maple top finished in an eye catching mojave fade, creating an incredibly stylish and unique instrument. While the flamed maple top provides the Gibson with its amazing aesthetic, the mahogany body offers a beautifully sweet, warm tonal characteristic with plenty of punch for added depth. Its twin horn cut-away design delivers the classic SG style, and provides players with incredible access to the upper frets for total freedom across the entire fingerboard.
The Gibson Guitar not only offers a comfortable body, but features a slim tapered neck profile to deliver an incredibly comfortable performance. The mahogany neck provides the ultimate comfort with its slim profile, and allows for fast and comfortable soloing. As well as providing fluid hand flexibility, the mahogany wood helps enhance the natural warmth of the body, creating a high-end saturated in sparkling sweetness and a thick low-end response. The addition of a rosewood fingerboard helps enhance the natural characteristics of the body, adding extra sparkle to the high end and opening up the midrange.
Loaded with Gibson '57 Classic and Super ’57 Classic humbucking pickups in the bridge and neck position, the 2018 SG Standard HP produces warm and clear sounds based on the traditional PAF tone. Having become synonymous with the ‘sought-after’ sound of vintage Gibson guitars, the ’57 Classic provides players with a crunchy tone with plenty of gain, while the Super ’57 Classic offers a smooth, responsive tone. Constructed from alnico II magnets, matched coil windings, and featuring two conductor wiring, the '57 Classic humbuckers are perfect for delivering a vintage high gain tone with excellent dynamics, brightness, and balanced overtones.
Its two pickups feature independent volume and tone controls, with push/pull functions on the volume knobs to deliver incredible tonal possibilities. Its high-performance aviation grade toggle switch makes flicking between pickups quick and easy, while the addition of a DIP switch provides players with wide selection of instant wiring options for the ultimate versatility.
As well as looks and tone, the new Gibson SG Standard HP also features the G force self-tuning system, which is an innovative system worked by a mechanical device that is secured to the headstock. Each machine head contains a small servo motor that can wind the string up or down. Simply push the on button and strum to see this device in action and perfectly tune your guitar. Not only does the G force tuning system provide standard tunings, it also offers alternate and custom tunings. It also allows players to tune to instruments that are in tune with themselves but not to concert pitch, adding pitch offsets to individual strings, and tuning with a capo. Powered by a rechargeable battery, the G force system provides up to 100 tunings on one single charge, and also allows for manual tuning.
The 2018 SG Electric Guitar features an aluminium Tune-O-Matic bridge, which is an extremely popular fixed bridge type due to its stability, reliability, comfortable playing position, and impressive sustain. Adjusting the string action and intonation is extremely simple with a tune-o-matic bridge, as you simply adjust its height with the mounting rods to alter the action, and screw the bridge saddles in or out to achieve perfect intonation.
The Titanium Zero-Fret Adjustable nut is a superior nut design due to its exceptional adjustability to match various playing styles. This innovative nut benefits from an all-titanium construction for extreme durability, and a retaining screw so the nut stays in place when you change strings. Like with bridge adjustments, the Zero-Fret Nut allows you to adjust the height and angle, for the optimum feel.
