Gibson SG Standard T 2017 Heritage Cherry Electric Guitar
When the double-cutaway SG was unveiled as the (temporary) replacement for the original single-cutaway Les Paul in 1961 it quickly proved itself far more than just a stand-in. An overnight success, this innovative guitar quickly became a favorite with rock, blues and jazz players and more. The flagship of the SG range, the SG Standard 2017 T represents a superb blend of historic looks, tone, contemporary versatility and playability. Its iconic asymmetrical double-horned body styling and smaller "teardrop" pickguard harken back to the originals of the early ’60s, and the Classic ’57 humbuckers likewise take you straight back to those hallowed PAF tones. When uncompromising performance matters, locking Grover kidney-button tuners, a slim-taper neck and rosewood fingerboard with rolled binding, Gibson's finest modern aluminum Tune-O-Matic bridge and stop bar tailpiece with elegant chrome plating provide a stylish and modern SG playing experience. The SG Standard 2017 T is delivered in a classic Gibson hardshell case with a Gibson multi-tool, a premium leather strap and a polishing cloth.

Plek'd for precision playability
This SG Standard 2017 T feels fast and precise, thanks in large part to Plek processing. Typically reserved for top-dollar custom guitars, this process levels the frets with pinpoint precision, providing you with the most playable fretboard you're likely to own. Each note rings loud and clear, and the fret edges feel smooth as silk.

The Gibson SG - a brief history
In the early 1960s, Gibson sought to bolster its reputation as a quality builder of electric solidbody guitars in the midst of slow sales of their now-iconic Les Paul. Originally intended as a new model of the Les Paul, this new design failed to obtain the endorsement of Les Paul himself, and as such was renamed the SG (Solid Guitar). The newly minted Gibson SG was thinner than the Les Paul, with two cutaways, pointed horns, beveled edges, and no body binding. Originally advertised as having the "fastest neck in the world," the Gibson SG is presently one of the most copied solidbody electric guitar models in the world.

SlimTaper neck feels great and provides exceptional playability
The Gibson SG Standard T sports a comfortable, fast-action neck with a SlimTaper profile. Early Gibson guitars had huge, often ungainly necks. By 1960, Gibson had gradually carved down this profile into what became their SlimTaper neck. As your fingers move down this neck, the precisely controlled width-to-thickness ratio of the SG Standard T's SlimTaper neck provides you with a consistent, fast, and comfortable feel. It's no wonder many lifelong guitar players consider the SlimTaper Gibson's finest neck.

Powerful, punchy pickups plus killer appointments
Two of Gibson's best-loved humbuckers amongst Sweetwater guitarists - a '57 Classic in the neck position, and a '57 Classic Plus in the bridge - give the Gibson SG Standard T the power, punch, and clarity of Gibson's legendary PAF pickups. Other traditional appointments include a small teardrop pickguard, locking Grover kidney-button tuners, and a chromed aluminum Tune-o-matic bridge and stopbar.
