When it first hit the scene back in 1961, the Gibson SG was one of the most radical designs the guitar world had ever witnesses, and it still makes a bold statement today. The diverse list of guitar stars that have taken variations of the SG model to heart over the years includes Eric Clapton, Pete Townshend, Angus Young, Frank Zappa, Derek Trucks, Tony Iommi, Robbie Krieger, Gary Louris of The Jayhawks, Rivers Cuomo of Weezer and many, many others.

Originally conceived as a modern replacement for the single-cutaway Les Paul Standard (the name it still carried for the first couple years of its existence), the SG had several features that made it perfect for cutting-edge guitarists -- all of which remain present in the Gibson USA SG Standard -- and it became an iconic rock guitar almost immediately. With its light yet resonant solid-mahogany body and neck, a radical looking double-cutaway design that also yields unprecedented upper-fret access, a rock-solid Tune-o-matic bridge and stoptail pairing, and two meaty humbucking pickups, today's SG Standard is just as sweet a player and as monstrous a tone machine as the guitars that made the name legendary nearly 50 years ago.
