OVERVIEW

Legendary SG tone and style.

The 2018 SG Standard guitar captures the essence of the groundbreaking SG of 1961 with the sonic characteristics that made this model a legend. New and modern improvements include locking tuners and white fingerboard binding on a solid rosewood fingerboard. The powerful, expressive tone is driven by a pair of humbuckers that are faithful recreations of the popular late-era PAF pickups. Includes hardshell case.

      Comments about Gibson SG Standard 2018 Electric Guitar:

      I'm a session drummer, but my son (12 y/o) is a guitarist and the SG has been his dream guitar since he started playing 3 years ago. We finally broke down and got him one this year, after much agonizing over the quality of Gibson's output in recent years. I have to say I was pleasantly surprised by the quality and craftsmanship on display with this instrument -- looked and sounded great right out of the case, with no fret buzz and none of the low-quality/attention to detail complaints I've heard from colleagues about Gibsons in recent model years. We still took it to our local luthier for a setup, but he said he was also pleasantly surprised by its condition -- here's to hoping that Gibson is back on track.

      The '61 pickups sound amazing, and after having a couple friends run it through its paces with different amps (including an Orange Tiny Terror and a Fender Blues Jr.) I have to say I'm more than pleased with the purchase--needless to say, the kid was happy with his Christmas present.

        Comments about Gibson SG Standard 2018 Electric Guitar:

        Guitar arrived in an unplayable condition. All the nuts holding the tunning keys were loose and the bridge pickup was somhogh it was actually touching the low e string. Arrived from Gibson like this. Very very poor quality control. Try another company. Probably why Gibson is in chapter 11!

        Comments about Gibson SG Standard 2018 Electric Guitar:

        The autumn SG I received was practically flawless. Gibson showed great attention to craftsmanship and detail. The inspection date was 10/9/17, and the inspector was P Goddard.
