    Celebrating 50 years since the introduction of this seminal solidbody design.

    Gibson USA unveils the SG Standard 24, a guitar that captures all the classic ingredients of Gibson's great double-cutaway solidbody model, with a few clever twists to make it even more versatile for today's demanding performer. Like the best SGs of the past 50 years, the SG Standard 24 starts with a solid mahogany body and glued-in quartersawn mahogany neck, a pairing that ensures ringing sustain, superb tonal depth, and plenty of clarity and richness. The body's thin dimensions make this a pleasurably light guitar to play, while its classically beveled edges also make it comfortable on the forearm. To update the format for the 21st century, however, Gibson USA gives the SG Standard 24 the 24-fret neck that its name implies, with even the uppermost of its medium-jumbo frets easily accessible thanks to the SG's legendary deep double-cutaway design. Combine this with a beautifully ergonomic rounded neck profile, and you've got one of the sweetest playing rock machines available today.

    Two of Gibson's popular PAF-style '57 Classic humbucking pickups translate the SG Standard 24's sonic goodness to your amp of choice, yielding anything from deep, warm vocal tones in the neck position to endless growl and roar in the bridge, to round and snappy tones in between. The classic pairing of a Nashville Tune-O-Matic bridge and stopbar tailpiece keeps it all rock-solid and resonant, while up at the other end a PLEK-cut Corian nut ensures clean intonation and singing sustain. Top it all off with a set of vintage-style tuners with pearloid buttons, a unique "50 Years" headstock emblem, and a high-gloss nitrocellulose finish in Antique Ebony, and you've got a spectacular celebration of one of the world's favorite electric guitars, all wrapped up in an instrument you can gig with today. Each guitar includes a Gibson hardshell case and owner's manual, and is covered by Gibson's Limited Lifetime Warranty and 24/7/365 Customer Service. Check out your own SG Standard 24 today, and prepare to rock for the ages.

    The SG Story
    Way back in 1961 when the SG Standard temporarily replaced the Les Paul Standard in the Gibson line up, few were aware that a future icon of rock guitar was being introduced to the scene. Originally called the "Les Paul/SG", this radical, double-cutaway electric with two dramatic asymmetrical pointed "horns" and a thin all-mahogany body was worlds away from the single-cutaway maple and mahogany Les Paul that it replaced. It proved to have similar power, punch and versatility, but also expressed a voice all its own, one that has grabbed many heavy rock and metal players in particular, alongside countless classic rock and blues artists. By the time the single-cutaway Les Paul returned in the late '60s, the SG Standard was already a legend, and had forever claimed its place in rock history.

      My new favorite

      By J-Rod

      from Upstate NY

      Comments about Gibson Limited Run 50th Anniversary SG Standard 24 Electric Guitar:

      I've had this guitar for a few months now, and I find myself playing it more than any of my others. It plays like a dream, and the 24 frets are a nice bonus. Love the sound of the '57 classics; they're great for just about any musical style. The glossy ebony finish is beautiful and the '60's pickguard looks sharp. Some drawbacks: The rosewood board was very dry, and had some gouges in it. However, playability was unaffected, so I kept it. Guess that's par for the course for Gibson these days...: ( Also, there were several finish flaws, especially between the neck pickup and the board. Saw some scuffs on the side of the body (near knobs), but not too noticeable with the black finish. Bought this as a mint condition used model, so I was a bit surprised. Overall, though, great sound, good looks and playability. Very happy with it!

      Gibson 50th Anniversary SG Standard 24

      By Frankie Feranna Fan

      Comments about Gibson Limited Run 50th Anniversary SG Standard 24 Electric Guitar:

      I would recommend this guitar to anyone. The fact that it's a 50th anniversary model makes it unique. I will keep this guitar forever.
      Antique ebony finish is beautiful. 24 fret rosewood fretboard with crown inlays. Tune-o-matic bridge. Pearl tuning keys. 2 gibson '57 PAF humbuckers. This guitar looks and sounds cool. It's very light and comfortable to play. CLASSIC.
      Gibson quality all the way. They are making really good guitars. I can tell that alot of time and craftmanship was utilized in the making of this guitar.
      The price of this guitar was perfect. I have always wanted a '61 reissue in black. The only problem was whenever I would see one for sale it always had gold hardware. I always wanted a black one with chrome hardware so this model was perfect. The 24 frets is an added bonus. The Gibson case is black exterior with beautiful plush white interior.....smells like a Gibson.

      WOW!!!

      By Brandon Curry

      from Los Angeles

      Comments about Gibson Limited Run 50th Anniversary SG Standard 24 Electric Guitar:

      An anniversary model well worth the price! 57 Classics sing. Cool hardshell case. Black never looked so tough!! Back in Black!! Insanely rocking guitar!! I stressed over getting this one. Absolutly worth it!!
      I've wanted an SG for 20 years... When I saw this model, I knew it was the one! You wont be disapointed!! Plays like a dream!! Easy access to 24th fret, deep cut aways.. Beveled edges front and back... Neck is more meaty than 60's, but feels perfect.. Sustain for days!!
      Has a few fleas, but nothing tragic! Not the smooth glossy finish. If you look close, and you will cause this guitar is soo hot, you will see the grains and pits in the mahogany. Neck binding is off a little, can feel a little groove between paint and binding.. Miniature..Minutia.. Felt that on several new Gibsons at GC, on Pauls and SG's.. Hardly noticable.. No problem with tuners..(yet)..
      A little more than a Standard, but with 24 frets, totaly worth it!!

      sg awesomeness

      Sweated and dreamed of this gem since I first saw it. Overall quality is good, only gripe is where neck meets body looks as if a little glue wasn't wiped completely off before they painted it. Minute flaw. Neck feels great, guitar is typical Gibson. Quality all around. Humbuckers are the best, the inclusion of 57's, `61 pickguard, being a 50th Anniversary and 24 fret neck made it irresistible to me. I'm sure some people will get this only for collector aspect and treat it like furniture. But this baby is a players dream. Set up was spot on and action is so low it makes playing a breeze. I sweated on finding one for a little bit. Get this sweetheart while you can and don't even think twice about it.
