Description

Details

The Gibson USA 2018 SG Standard Electric Guitar offers up the awesome power of the legendary '61 model, with appointments that are designed to recreate the sonic powerhouse that made it a classic. Not only that, but the inclusion of modern improvements goes towards making the 2018 SG Standard a standout. Add a hardshell case and accessory kit and you've got yourself quite the package!

Sublime solidbody SG

The Gibson USA 2018 SG Standard is built and shaped to the classic slimline double-cutaway "horns" profile we've all come to know and love. The unfussy yet undeniably cool design has often been imitated but never equalled. With gently bevelled edges and a balanced weight distribution, the 2018 SG is comfortable in the hands and a joy to wield. The body is crafted from mahogany, a tonewood that is favoured by Gibson due to its ability to generate masses of power infused with warmth. The finish is protected by a coating of gloss nitrocellulose lacquer that protects against unwanted blemishes detracting from the visual aesthetic.

Fast playing neck

Fitted to the body is a deftly crafted mahogany neck, which is shaped to the slimtaper profile for a lightning fast feel. Married to the neck is a luxurious rosewood fingerboard, which is home to 22 medium frets that have been cryogenically treated. The fingerboard is decorated with acrylic trapezoid position inlays, whilst white binding guarantees seamless transitions between every fret.

'61 humbuckers

To recreate classic '61 tone, the 2018 SG Standard is equipped with Gibson's 61R in the neck, and 61T in the bridge. Designed to produce a high-gain output, these humbuckers not only offer a sweet rendition of those early pickups, but also slide perfectly into modern day rock styles too. Control over the pickups comes in the form of a pair of volume pots, a pair of tone pots, and a three-way toggle switch to select either pickup independently or both simultaneously. In keeping with the vintage vibe, black 'Top Hat' knobs have been employed as the control pots.

Gig-ready hardware

The headstock is home to a bell-shaped chrome truss rod cover, whilst the distinctive Gibson logo resides between the locking kidney tuning machines. The tuners and Tektoid nut work dutifully to uphold tuning integrity and string tension. The body is home to the chrome finished aluminium Tune-O-Matic bridge, which is paired with an aluminium stop bar tailpiece, a combination that anchors each string securely to optimise intonation and sustain throughout the most emphatic of performances.
