When the original Les Paul evolved into the Les Paul/SG Standard in 1961, it ushered in a new lineup of sleek double-cutaway guitars that would become legendary in their own right, with rock and blues players in particular. Decked out in the upmarket features of the original SG Standard, but with a twist, the SG Standard 2016 T carries a pair of screaming P-90 pickups like those used on the original SG Special of the '60s, a favorite of Pete Townshend, Robby Krieger, and other rock greats. The result is a popular alternative tone in a guitar with classic looks and specs, all at an unbeatable price for a genuine American-made Gibson electric guitar.
