The Gibson SG Standard Left-handed Electric guitar is the modern version of this legendary instrument.
Calling all Leftys! Get ready to cut through the mix with this timeless Gibson SG.
When introduced in the '60s, the SG, Gibson's new solidbody guitar, broke through traditional concepts of solidbody electrics and became an instant classic. The SG body style has remained in production since its first appearance in 1961.
Like the Les Paul, the SG Standard shattered all perceptions of what a guitar could be when it was introduced in 1961. Today, it stands as one of the most popular and best-selling of all Gibson guitars. Its distinct cutaways, pointed horns and beveled edges have made it one of the most inspired and iconic designs in the history of guitar-making. Not only is the SG one of the most eye-catching guitar designs, it is also one of the most functional and effective.
The streamlined body is a solid, lightweight piece of mahogany, with exceptional resonance to ensure superior tone and greater sustain. It's traditional 22-fret mahogany neck with rosewood fingerboard and rounded profile has long been championed as the fastest guitar neck in the world, and with twin cutaways it offers easier access to the higher frets.
This incarnation of the SG features a mahogany body & neck, a rosewood fingerboard with big trapezoid inlays, Gibson Alnico humbuckers and chrome hardware.
A Gibson hardshell case is included.
This Modern Classic pickup features a tonal characteristic similar to the ’57 Classic, but delivers a slight increase in the upper mids, for a more contemporary humbucking sound. The special Alnico II magnet gives this beauty a singing quality that delivers on demand.
498T Hot Alnico Humbucker
Put a slightly hotter Alnico V magnet into a specially wound coil combination, and you get the 498T Hot Alnico. With its higher output and emphasis on mid-ranges and highs, the 498T is the perfect rock pickup.
