The Gibson SG Standard Left Handed Electric Guitar captures the classic looks, tone, feel and vibe of the very first SG’s produced in the early 60’s! The original early 60’s pickguard returns to the lefty SG Standard to give it the old school look favored by countless players from then until now. Gibson USA also gives this axe a slim ’60s profile neck with a smaller early ’60s headstock, dual ’57 Classic humbuckers, and genuine TonePros vintage-style tuners. Kudos to Gibson for making all the finishes available for lefties!

Gibson uses a Grade-A solid mahogany body crafted in the distinctive, thin asymmetrical dual-cutaway style, with iconic pointed horns and beveled edges to enhance playing comfort. The lefty SG Standard also has a solid, Grade-A, quarter-sawn mahogany neck which is glued into the body and has a fast, slim ’60s profile. It is topped with a bound fingerboard made from genuine Grade-A rosewood with 22 medium-jumbo frets, and traditional trapezoid inlays. The smaller vintage-style headstock has the classic mother-of-pearl Gibson logo and holly inlays.
The left handed SG Standard packs some series vintage tone with a pair of ’57 Classic humbucking pickups, some of the most popular recreations of vintage PAF humbuckers available today. These great pickups use genuine Alnico II bar magnets and are wound with 42-AWG enamel-coated wire for the characteristic blend of warmth and creaminess that made original PAFs legendary. An independent volume and tone control per pickup plus a three-way toggle selector switch allows a broad range of sonic variations.
Gibson USA loads the SG Standard guitar with a Tune-o-Matic bridge, Stopbar tailpiece and a set of genuine TonePros vintage-style tuners, a hardware set that partners up for solid sustain and precision tuning. Put it all together, and the lefty SG Standard presents a great incarnation of the iconic original, bringing the look, feel, and sound to the hands of players of today.
