Gibson SG Electric Guitars

Blending the old and the new to startling effect, these gorgeous Gibson SG electric guitars will give you a truly rewarding playing experience. These guitars have been created by Gibson to offer the very best of the vintage 1960s SG models, whilst bringing those designs up to present day playability. The results are deeply impressive, and we are happy to be able to present these powerful and stunning guitars in our store.

A guitar for many occasions

One of the things which is so great about the SG is its versatility. This is the electric guitar that you will want if you are not tied down to one genre of music. These electric guitars are going to be just as effective in a wide array of genres, from pop to metal.

So, if you are a session musician, or indeed if you just enjoy being able to experiment with different sounds when you are practicing and playing at home, the Gibson SG is going to give you a lot of joy. For precisely the same reason, it is also a real weapon if you want to hit the road without having to take a number of guitars with you.

Beautiful sound and look

Gibson have been very smart in the way that they have put together their 490 humbucker pickups, which take what is best from the classic tone of the PAF pickups, but inject them with a bit of 21st century gain capability. It is like you have the classic instrument itself, but its powers have been heightened! What will also be striking about these instruments even before you have picked one up is their sheer beauty. The finishes that are available are stunning. Whether you go with the the cherry red, the natural walnut, the cherry satin or the standard ebony, you will have yourself a guitar which will be turning some heads in all the right ways.

Gibson SG Standard Heritage Cherry Electric Guitar Part of Gibsons ‘Modern Collection’, the new Gibson SG Standard gives the authentic looks and features of the vintage SGs of the 60s but with a slight modern twist in the pickup department as well as a wonderfully comfortable Rounded Neck profile. The full-face black scratchplate and chrome hardware are as eye-catching as they are functional. It comes perfectly set up with 10-46 gauge strings and comes with a premium soft shell case. It's available in the classic Heritage Cherry as well as a beautiful Ebony finish. With a bound Rosewood fingerboard with acrylic trapezoid inlays, this really is an exceptional American made electric guitar at an exceptional price. Ready For Anything The SG Standard is ready for anything. It is regarded as one of the most versatile electrics ever made. Whether you play rock, pop, soul, blues, funk, metal, jazz or even gospel. The SG will have you covered. Incredibly lightweight and easy to handle and still full of sustain and bite. Long Tenon The Gibson SG Standard features a long tenon 19th fret joint. The shorter tenon joint of the early SGs can pose several issues to the guitar, particularly in regards to the strength and robustness to the neck. Gibson introduced the long tenon neck joint to SGs in the early 70s and it has been used ever since. Not only does it strengthen the neck join so that you have a more stable and reliable instrument but it also increased the amount of wood to wood contact in the neck pocket. This actually helps increase the sustain and gives a slightly bigger tone. 490 Pickups Described as Gibson as the ‘Modern Classic’ the 490 humbucker pickups take the foundational tone of beloved PAF pickup but tweaks the classic design for the modern player. Players today like gain and lots of it. The trouble with the original PAF design was the open air space in the pickup. It's this air space that actually helps cause microphonic feedback problems, specifically when used with tons of gain or a very loud gigging amp. The 490 pickups are wax potted so that there is no air space whatsoever. Another problem modern players also find with traditional styled humbuckers is the fact that they only have 2 conductor wires. People love and need versatility and therefore want humbuckers that they can coil-split for a single-coil sound. That means they need a 4 conductor pickup. The 490 pickups give you this option. The 490 pickups also give you a slight increase in the upper midrange to help you cut through the mix more as well as push your amp even harder.
