Summary: The Gibson SG Standard, famous for its comfortable, fast-action neck, is a perennial favorite among us here at Empire Guitars. The SG Standard 2016 T embodies all the tone, feel, and look of the original rendition of this legendary guitar, all wrapped into a design that remains one of the most versatile guitars ever. A rounded profile mahogany neck, bound rosewood fingerboard, and a solid mahogany body provide the backbone for singing sustain. The 490R and 498T pickups provide the power to drive. It has a five-ply, full-face pickguard, two volume/two tone controls, and a three-way pickup selector. This SG Standard T has been gigged with but cared for and it still has a ton of life left in it.
