Like the original SGs of the '60s and all of the classic variations since, the Gibson USA SG Standard With P-90s has a body crafted from solid mahogany in the iconic asymmetrical "double-horned" deep double-cutaway design (attractive Grade-A timber is used beneath the translucent finish of the Heritage Cherry guitars). A light and supremely resonant wood, mahogany gives this guitar outstanding tonal richness and depth, with plenty of clarity and sustain. Coupled with the SG's characteristic beveled edge—a traditional part of this model's distinctive styling—the mahogany's light weight also enhances playing comfort. The guitar's quarter-sawn mahogany neck is carved to a rounded profile that feels sublimely comfortable in the hand. It is glued into the body with Gibson's acclaimed mortise-and-tennon neck joint, and topped with a baked maple fingerboard with 22 medium-jumbo frets, dressed in vintage cream binding. Acrylic trapezoid fingerboard inlays, a mother-of-pearl headstock logo and holly inlay, a five-ply late-’60s style pickguard and a black truss-rod cover round out this eye-catching package.
