The Gibson SG Standard is made in the USA and has 23 frets on it. It has two Gibson made pick ups that each have knobs for volume and tone control. There is also a switch to choose between the pick ups, or to use them together. It has a beautiful chrome pattern on the inlay and the Heritage Cherry finish is probably the color that is most associated with this guitar.


The neck of the Gibson SG Standard feel really great on the fingers. It is easy to play because of this, whether you want to play lead or rhythm guitar. It is easy to access the top notes and to play all around the neck. The Gibson SG Standard isn't heavy, but isn't light and it has the shape and look that has become synonymous with the SG. Getting a nice sound is easy because the inherent tone is extremely full bodied and is packed with punch.


The Gibson SG Standard is great playing rock music, especially for heavier rock because of the huge wall of sound that radiates from this instrument. The sound was made famous by Angus Young of ACDC and continues to be a mainstay in the world of guitars. I usually plug this guitar into a '76 Fender Twin Reverb or a Marshall JCM 800, depending on what type of sounding I'm going for. While the clean sound is definitely good sounding, this guitar really excels when you throw some distortion on your tone.


I've been using the Gibson SG Standard for about five years and it is definitely one of my favorite guitars to use for recording rock music. The price of this guitar is very reasonable considering the top notch quality that come along with it. The crunch and bite from this guitar makes it perfect for rock and roll, even though it would work fine in other situations as well. This is a totally unique guitar that has been copied again and again, but can nothing can be like the real thing. If you are looking for a great guitar that will last a long time, the Gibson SG Standard is absolutely worth a try.
