A confirmed classic ever since its arrival in 1961, SGs of various types have been played by Pete Townshend, Eric Clapton, Tony Iommi, Frank Zappa, Robby Krieger, Angus Young, Derek Trucks, Jeff Tweedy, and countless other rock, blues and alternative artists. While the SG Standard's original specs included a pair of humbucking pickups, many players have always loved the hot, raw sound of single-coil P-90 pickups, as found on the SG Special and Junior guitars, which otherwise had more austere features. Now Gibson USA introduces the SG Standard With P-90s, which features all the appointments of the Standard model, but is equipped with a pair of authentic P-90 pickups. Finished in your choice of Heritage Cherry or Ebony Black—both in hand-sprayed, high-gloss nitrocellulose lacquer—the SG Standard With P-90s brings together the features and electronics of two legendary SG models for the first time, and creates a timeless classic in the process.
Like the original SGs of the '60s and all of the classic variations since, the Gibson USA SG Standard With P-90s has a body crafted from solid mahogany in the iconic asymmetrical "double-horned" deep double-cutaway design (attractive Grade-A timber is used beneath the translucent finish of the Heritage Cherry guitars). A light and supremely resonant wood, mahogany gives this guitar outstanding tonal richness and depth, with plenty of clarity and sustain. Coupled with the SG's characteristic beveled edge—a traditional part of this model's distinctive styling—the mahogany's light weight also enhances playing comfort. The guitar's quarter-sawn mahogany neck is carved to a rounded profile that feels sublimely comfortable in the hand. It is glued into the body with Gibson's acclaimed mortise-and-tennon neck joint, and topped with a rosewood fingerboard, 22 medium-jumbo frets, dressed in vintage cream binding. Acrylic trapezoid fingerboard inlays, a mother-of-pearl headstock logo and holly inlay, a five-ply late-'60s style pickguard, and a black truss-rod cover engraved with "SG" round out this eye-catching package.
To take it all into raw and rugged sonic territory, Gibson USA equips the SG Standard With P-90s with a pair of the authentic P-90 single-coil pickups that help to give this guitar its name. Made just like the originals that were introduced by Gibson way back in 1946—and have been favorites ever since—each of these pickups carries a pair of Alnico V bar magnets and is wound with 42 AWG wire for a tone that is meaty and thick, yet clear and articulate, with that characteristic P-90 edge and bite. Your tone is anchored by the classic pairing of a Tune-o-matic bridge and stopbar tailpiece, with a set of TonePros vintage-style keystone tuners installed at the other side of the PLEK-cut Corian nut. Put it all together, and the SG Standard With P-90s is a smoking slab of vintage mojo.
Each guitar includes a Gibson gig bag case and owner's manual, and is covered by Gibson's Limited Lifetime Warranty.

Comments about Gibson SG Standard P-90 Electric Guitar with Hardshell Case:
Love it. Gibson SG necks are one of the best designs ever. This is my second Gibson SG. The other one has coil splitting humbuckers which sound great. The P-90 is not a fender single coil sound, nor a humbucker sound, but it's own unique tone machine. Definitely more of a very old school retro 1950's sound to it. Warm. You will want to work the tone knobs on the guitar and amp to find your sweet spot. A little effort involved, but well worth it. I am so happy with the guitar, I went ahead and replaced all the chrome hardware to gold. Nothing wrong with the chrome, just wanted a different look with the gold on red. Only con is the input jack is very stiff. Gibson might want to quality control that better, but not a deal breaker. Sure it will loosen up. Love the Stratocaster, and love the Les Paul, and love the Metal guitars, but the SG deserves a place right next to the best electric guitars ever.
