Bridge
In 1954, Gibson revolutionized guitar hardware when it debuted the Tune-o-matic bridge, setting a standard for simplicity and functionality that has never been bettered. Included on the SG Standard, the Tune-o-matic provides a firm seating for the strings, allowing the player to adjust and fine-tune the intonation and string height in a matter of minutes. It also yields excellent coupling between strings and body, maximizing resonance, tone, and sustain. This bridge is made from Zamak then plated in chrome, and each one weighs approximately .118 lbs. Bridge
Tailpiece
Every Tune-o-matic bridge is combined with a separate “stopbar” tailpiece, which is essentially a modified version of the earlier wraparound bridge that’s designed to further enhance the connection between the strings and the body. The SG Standard’s stopbar tailpiece is made from Zamak then plated in chrome, and each one weighs approximately .24 lbs. Tailpiece
Control Knobs
The control knobs on the SG Standard are Gibson’s black top-hat knobs, as found on many vintage and modern Gibson guitars. Control Knobs
