Description

Details

The Gibson USA 2018 SG Standard HP Electric Guitar is an immaculate rendition of the awesome solidbody, giving elite players everything that could want in a pristine package. Everything about this model screams excellence, and to play one will have you craving the limelight - so it is a good job that each model is supplied with a carbon fibre travel case and accessory kit.

Sublime solidbody

The 2018 SG Standard HP raises the bar for SGs in terms of build quality. The body is crafted using mahogany, which establishes a solid midrange tonal foundation. Paired with the body is a visually commanding AA figured maple top, which sets off the spectacular visual aesthetic beautifully. The deep double-cutaway "horns" are present and correct, with sweetly bevelled edges complementing the slimline design to create the unbelievably comfortable playing feel that has drawn so many players to the SG.

Fast playing neck

Fitted to the body is a meticulously crafted neck, which is shaped to the slimtaper profile that is paired with the soloist neck width for the perfect balance of speed and accuracy. For unrestricted control over string action and better sustain there is a titanium adjustable nut with locking feature. As ever, the SG rewards fearless players and those who like to rock out in style. Married to the neck is a luxurious rosewood fingerboard, which is home to 24 low profile frets that have been cryogenically treated. The fingerboard is adorned with pearl trapezoid position inlays to guide you along its entire length.

'57 Classic humbuckers

Gibson have employed a pair of classic humbucker pickups in the 2018 SG Standard HP, with a '57 Classic in the neck position and a Super '57 Classic in the bridge position. The '57 Classic humbuckers are designed to accurately replicate the original PAF-style tone heard on the original SG models.

However, the modern-day twist on the electronics setup makes the Standard HP a highly adaptable model, expanding the tonal versatility of the SG further than before. The volume pots have push-pull switches to coil tap each pickup, whilst the DIP switch enables a range of tones to be plucked from the humbuckers. Whatever style of music you play, this guitar can traverse any musical landscape with ease.

Gig-ready hardware

The headstock is home to a bell-shaped chrome truss rod cover, whilst the distinctive Gibson logo resides between the tuning machines. The body is home to the chrome finished aluminium Tune-O-Matic bridge with titanium saddles, which is paired with an aluminium stop bar tailpiece. Everything has been designed and fitted to contribute to the SG Standard HP's superb sustain.
