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.

Sometimes The Brand does matter!
What is your opinion of this product?
The Fit and Finish of this guitar is as perfect as could be,I chose the classic Heritage Cherry The setup was right on straight out of the box, It actually was in tune, I have not found any dead spots on this guitar, It has a very nice slim tapered neck for easy playability, this model came equipped with grover locking tuners, great sustain, the pickups have that classic gibson sound reminicent of Cream, Zepp and the like, came packed in a traditional Gibson tan/gold hard shell case with candy, very happy I held out for the restock of this model (2018), the overall feel of this guitar is excellent not heavy at all very well made as one has come to expect from Gibson, As a guitarist I do have to say I am very impressed with this guitar, I'm mostly a fender man however gotta say I will be rocking this SG quite a bit

Mixed emotions
What is your opinion of this product?
Overall I’ve always liked the sg’s. I just received mine. Have admit iwas slightly disappointed. The finish was good, no scratches or dents. But the action was not what I expected from a gibson. The knobs where all a little loose. Haven’t owned a gibson in awhile but with a little adjustments and some set up i think it’ll be a solid guitar. Good price,nice case but could’ve used a little more attention to detail.

Great guitar and excellent customer service
What is your opinion of this product?
I love this Gibson SG. Unfortunately when I opened the guitar for the first time, it had been shut in the case incorrectly and one of the tuning knobs was broken. This was of course not American Musical’s fault, but their customer service was so easy to deal with and they took care of me. Ended up with new knobs and the guitar plays beautifully.
