why not play a true legend?

The new solidbody guitar of the ’60s, the Gibson SG guitar, broke through traditional concepts of solid body electric guitars and became an instant classic. The SG body style has remained in production since its first appearance in 1961.
The classic double cutaway look has been around almost as long as Rock and Roll. Always a best seller, the Gibson SG Standard guitar has all the classic features you’d expect from a historic guitar: it takes the best of the ’62 original and adds the longer and sturdier neck joint of the late ’60s musical instruments; the dual humbucking configuration and body style that continues to drive this bad boy onto stages and studios everywhere; hot humbuckers go from rich, sweet lightning to warm, tingling waves of sustain; a silky-fast rosewood fretboard plays like a dream; the original-style beveled mahogany body looks like a million bucks. Plus, there’s a tune-o-matic bridge and chrome hardware. Limited lifetime warranty. Includes hardshell case. Why not play a true legend, the one of the most popular incarnations of the legendary Gibson SG guitar?
Light weight, incredible playability, and the tone that launched a billion riffs.
