  • Description

    The SG Standard 2016 HP from Gibson USA blends traditional SG style and tone with an array of groundbreaking performance features. As you'd expect from an SG, this SG Standard 2016 HP sports a solid mahogany body along with a mahogany neck featuring a comfortably rounded profile. Giving this timeless Gibson even more playability than ever before, the SG Standard 2016 HP employs a High Performance fast-access neck heel for comfortable upper fret access, a slightly wider Soloist neck width, and an adjustable titanium zero-fret nut that allows you to tailor your action to taste. The rosewood fingerboard boasts a superbly playable 12" radius and showcases classic Trapezoid inlays in genuine mother-of-pearl.

    The SG Standard HP comes equipped with a 490R neck humbucker and a 498T bridge humbucker to serve up that legendary PAF-style sound with a modern twist. Referred to as the "Modern Classic," the 490R gives you that time-tested PAF tone while offering a more powerful response in the upper midrange. A hotter version of the 490R, the 498T delivers scorching hot, thick, powerful tones that'll beef up your leads and solos. The electronics have also been upgraded with a High Performance sturdier, noiseless toggle switch along with a gold-plated multi-contact jack for superior connection.

    As a part of the High Performance upgrades, Gibson has added their revolutionary G-FORCE tuning system to this latest offering of the SG, delivering unprecedented automated tuning capabilities. You can now access any preset tuning in just one second, which means you can realistically change tunings in the middle of a song, if needed. What's more, the tuners are now automatically engaged to operate both electronically or individually by hand. Compared to previous generations, this next-generation G FORCE system provides a quieter operation, better looks, and a smoother feel when tuning by hand.

    A traditional hardware combo upgraded for the discerning contemporary guitarist, the SG Standard 2016 HP comes fitted with stop bar tailpiece and a Tune-O-Matic bridge that features strong, lightweight, corrosion-resistant titanium saddles for unparalleled tone and performance. Comes complete with an ultra-durable High Performance Aluminum hardshell case.
