The Gibson SG Standard 2016 T comes in two versions – the Traditional (T) or the ‘High Performance’ (HP) which features Gibson’s latest upgrades. The SG Standard 2016 T goes back to the traditional format with the same feel, fit and finish that holds true with the original SG from the 1960’s…

The Gibson SG Standard 2016 T sports a solid Mahogany body, a super fast neck, and an array of traditional SG appointments including trapezoid inlays, classic neck binding and vintage-style tuners. Powered by a pair of Gibson 490R/498T alnico humbuckers, the SG Standard 2016 T has world-famous vintage PAF tones with their smooth and mid gain tone but are now even hotter when turned up to 11.

The new SG Standard 2016 T embodies all the tone, feel, and look of the original rendition of this legendary guitar, all wrapped into a design that remains one of the most versatile guitars ever.
