The iconic Gibson SG, one of the all-time great guitars, is back for 2018 and the new Standard HP is turbo charged and better than ever.
A stunning Grade-AA figured maple top, finished in the amazing Cobalt Fade, offers a modern take on the classic 50's Bursts. Sitting atop the traditional Mahogany body, this SG benefits from enhanced resonance and sustain thanks to the tonewood pairing from heaven!
Then this classic guitar gets a modern makeover. The beautiful mahogany Soloist neck with Fast-Access heel and a Rosewood fingerboard is fast, comfortable and features a Titanium zero fret adjustable nut for incredible tone, sustain and durability. Upgraded G Force tuners offer fast, accurate tuning, perfect for alternate tunings and now with even smoother gears.
Loaded with a '57 Classic and Super '57 Classic humbuckers the HP is a little more on the edge than the Standard and with the push/pull and DIP switch you now have even more control over your tone. It is easy to see why they named this guitar the High Performance.
