Known for its double-cutaway, the SG is the best-selling Gibson of all time, digging its horns deep into a wide variety of musicians since evolving out of the famed Les Paul in 1961. It continues to be a near-ubiquitous fixture of blues, rock, and popular music to this day, and now more so than ever with the Gibson USA Standard Bass 2019. Available in Ebony and Heritage Cherry finishes, the SG Standard Bass 2019 features a solid mahogany body and neck with rounded profile, one-piece rosewood fingerboard, 30.5” scale length, Rhythm and Lead SG Bass pickups, and three-point adjustable bridge, all for low-end so low it’s downright devilish.
About Gibson USA:
Luthier Orville Gibson founded the Gibson Mandolin-Guitar Mfg. Co. Ltd. in Kalamazoo, MI in 1902. Its original aim was to make mandolins and mandolin-family instruments. Over the last 100-plus years, Gibson Brands, Inc., as it is now known, has since evolved into the world’s premier manufacturer of semi-hollow and hollow body electric guitars, as well as a celebrated portfolio of innovative solid-body and acoustic models.
Nashville: the home of country music, and the home of Gibson USA. Producing all Gibson solid-bodies, Gibson’s Nashville facility is the place where great love affairs, and guitars like the Les Paul and the SG, are born.
