Gibson SG Standard Electric Guitar
Noted as being one the best-selling guitars of all time today, the Gibson SG Standard, or "Solid Guitar," contains light, slim curves that make it easier on the shoulders as well as the eyes. It features a thicker neck profile, emulating the neck shapes of the iconic late 1950's Gibson guitars. It has even more powerful amplifiers with the use of 490R and 498T pickups for screaming tone. Choose between two gorgeous finishes—Heritage Cherry or Ebony—with a nitrocellulose finish that allows the wood to breathe. The cherry on top is the elegant fingerboard binding. Not only is this the most eye-catching of all Gibson's, it serves as being the most functional and effective. More information and displays of these stunning features can be seen on AmericanMusical.com.
Gibson Limited Edition SG Standard 24 Electric Guitar
Delivering a new take on the SG Standard, Gibson Limited Edition SG Standard 24 Electric Guitar contains extra bonuses that'll blow your mind. A 24-fret fingerboard, two high-performance pickups, a humbucker in the bridge, and a mini-humbucker in the neck position gives the Limited Edition SG an incredibly versatile tone. On top of that, your tone is anchored by a pairing of a Tune-o-matic bridge and stopbar tailpiece. A set of vintage-style TonePros tuners with white plastic buttons offer efficient performance, maintaining 1960's styling. It's topped off with unique new finishes including Antique Cherry, Natural Burst, Cream and Vintage Sunburst. Heavy on tone but easy on the budget, and it's only available at AmericanMusical.com.
Gibson SG Standard P90 Electric Guitar
The Gibson SG Standard P90 Electric Guitar is similar to the Standard model, but the use of authentic P-90 pickups is the true cherry on top of this model. It's known for its lightweight, solid mahogany-body with gloss nitro finish, vintage-style TonePros tuners, and its baked maple fingerboard with acrylic trapezoid inlays. Played by world-class artists such as Eric Clapton, Angus Young of AC/DC, and Pete Townsend of The Who, the SG Special has always been a favorite of rock'n'rollers. A guitar for the true artist—the Gibson SG Standard P90.
