Gibson SG Tribute 'Vintage Cherry Satin' Electric Guitar

The Gibson SG Standard Tribute is a true rock icon, and it comes loaded with features that deliver legendary tone and playability. Crafted with a traditional mahogany body and a comfortable rounded-profile maple neck, this guitar means business. The rosewood fingerboard is Plek'd for precision and offers buttery-smooth playability, while the double black, open-coil 490R and 490T Alnico II loaded pickups provide that classic SG snarl. With vintage deluxe tuners, a Nashville Tune-O-Matic bridge, and an aluminum stop bar tailpiece, you've got all the hardware you need for endless rock 'n' roll adventures.

The Gibson SG has been immortalized by guitar legends like Santana at Woodstock and Pete Townshend smashing it onstage. Now, you can own the real deal with the Gibson SG Standard Tribute. It's armed with a pair of toneful humbuckers that capture the essence of classic late-period PAF humbuckers, but with a touch more upper midrange for a contemporary edge. The lightweight mahogany body offers excellent sustain, and the satin nitro finish not only looks and feels great but also enhances the guitar's tone. This is your chance to own a piece of rock history, the Gibson SG Standard Tribute.

Gibson carefully voiced the pickups on the SG Standard Tribute to deliver tonal characteristics reminiscent of classic late-period PAF humbuckers. However, they added a subtle increase in the upper mids to give you a more contemporary sound. The 490R and 490T pickups truly shine when you're cranking out that classic SG fat, snarling tone. They are highly responsive, and rolling back the volume cleans them up beautifully. Whether you're delivering mellow jazz tones, bone-crushing crunch, or blistering solos, the SG Standard Tribute responds to your touch with world-class sensitivity.

Comfort and playability were paramount in the design of the SG Standard Tribute. The rounded "C" neck profile fits your hand perfectly, making long playing sessions a breeze. The rosewood fingerboard is incredibly smooth, and the frets are dressed to perfection using a Plek Pro machine for ultimate playability. This process, typically reserved for high-end custom guitars, levels the frets with pinpoint precision, ensuring you have the most playable fretboard you're likely to own.
