Product Description

The powerful, expressive tone of the Gibson SG Standard 2018 will instantly evoke memories of the most iconic Blues, Hard Rock and Heavy Metal guitarists and their groundbreaking, yet enduring riffs. Driven by a pair of humbuckers that are faithful recreations of the popular late-era PAF pickups, the Gibson SG Standard 2018 captures the essence of the original 1961 SG by accurately reproducing the sonic characteristics that made this model a legend.

History
Introduced by Gibson in 1961, the SG was originally intended to replace the Les Paul model, which was actually discontinued due to poor sales. In fact, the SG initially bore the Les Paul title — a development that Les himself was decidedly unhappy with. So much so that he requested his name be removed from the new model; and Gibson respectfully complied, re-branding his former namesake SG for “Solid Guitar”.

Despite Les’s misgivings, the SG enjoyed strong sales due to its lower price, dual cutaways allowing access to the 22nd fret, ultra-fast neck, lower weight, and its unique upper-midrange bite. George Harrison became an advocate of the SG in 1966, followed soon after by Pete Townsend, Robby Krieger, and Eric Clapton, who famously honed his glorious “Woman Tone” with an SG. However, the most loyal devotees of the SG may be Tony Iommi of Black Sabbath and Angus Young of AC/DC, who have rarely — if ever — been photographed playing any other brand or model of guitar.

Improvements for 2018
While the Gibson SG Standard looks, feels and sounds just like a ’61 SG, modern improvements include locking “kidney” tuners and chrome-plated aluminum bridge and stop tailpiece. You’ll undoubtedly appreciate the increased tuning stability and decreased weight afforded by these respective upgrades.

Additional Appointments
The 2018 SG Standard's solid mahogany body is finished with a beautiful nitrocellulose lacquer and features dual cutaways that provide easy access to all 22 frets on its slim-taper neck. The neck itself sports a solid rosewood fingerboard with “fret rollover” white fingerboard binding and trapezoidal acrylic inlays. In addition to the PAF 61R Neck and 61T Bridge pickups, the electronics section is rounded out by a 3-position Pickup Selector switch and 2 Volume and 2 Tone controls capped with black “Top Hat” knobs.

Gibson has also thoughtfully included a hardshell case to protect your investment for years to come.

This guitar is amazing. This is the fastest neck Ive played on a guitar in a long while very comfort
What is your opinion of this product?
These guitars play very well. This neck is my favorite over all the Gibson's and Ibanez Guitars I own. I own a 55 Gibson and a Les Paul and an Explorer HP and this is the one I play for most all my studio recording and writing. I swapped out the nut with a tusk XL and the hardware with tone pros and a Willie Adler Fishman Fluence set and Im in drop A most of the Time and people write bad reviews about the tuning but If your playing with heavier strings you have to adjust the nut or swap it, Also mine stays in tune better than most all of my guitars so Remember to set it up to your needs and this will serve you well. We are recording with this guitar for my project Time and you can check out the tone there soon to be released in July. With a brutal lineup myself Adler and Brad from TOny Danza it will be available for review tone then.

Only a Gibson is good enough
What is your opinion of this product?
I've seen a lot people on line complaining about the quality at Gibson going down. I see no evidence of that with this beautiful instrument. The fit and finish is remarkable. it was set up and ready to play right out of the box. Even after receiving it a full year after it was built! Great tuning stability with the locking Grover tuners. I've owned many Gibson guitars over the years and have rarely been disappointed. Looking forward to see where the new CEO takes this brand.

Excellent Guitar very pleased
What is your opinion of this product?
This is the second Gibson SG that I purchased within the last year or so. My first SG was sent back the same day I received it because of some QC issues that stood out. Some months past and I decided to purchase this one and I must say that I am very happy with it. The guitar is simply awesome and I am glad that I gave Gibson another chance. The finish is beautiful, the construction and components are very good. It plays excellent, it was absolutely worth the price I payed for it. Thank you AMS and Gibson

The devils guitar
What is your opinion of this product?
We all know the Gibson sg is directly related to the devil himself. Doors / Santana / and so many more just got the memo Early on and we had to learn this the hard way. In the name of all rock - long live the SG and the Les Paul both. Rock on!!

This is a skillfully crafted instrument. The setup was excellent and I haven’t been this thrilled with a guitar in ages. It sounds incredible and responds like no other guitar I have owned.
