Gibson USA 2018 SG Standard Autumn Shade overview from GAK

Consistently the most popular Gibson model since its arrival as the Les Paul SG in 1961, the SG standard is a guitar with serious rock and blues roots that captures the true sonic character of the groundbreaking 61' and pairs beautiful vintage aesthetics with refined, modern playability.

The 2018 SG Standard has a body constructed with solid mahogany, its slim-tapered mahogany neck is topped with a sleek rosewood fingerboard lined with white binding. The fingerboard radius sits at 12 inches with a scale length of just under 25 inches, the pairing of a slim fingerboard and light-weight body make the SG Standard a joy to play.

The frets on the 2018 SG Standard have been cryogenically treated, a process that distributes the metal in a precisely even way resulting in increased strength, durability and rust resistance. The headstock with classic Gibson USA script logo and smart looking 'SG' logo plate, is lined with chrome locking kidney-shaped tuners that give you super stable tuning locking the strings in place and ensuring they don't slip in the machine head. The tuners are extremely responsive and once out the box we had ourselves fully tuned up in no time.

The 2018 SG Standard's neck and bridge Humbucker pickups are both Gibson 61's, the loving carnations of the late-era PAF pickups. Plenty of bite in a range of tones to suit a range of playing styles, clean with smooth treble and plenty of bite.

The 2018 SG standard's slim profile and the overall light-weight make it a favourite for both heavy gigging and practising alike, with all of the character of its 60's predecessors still very much evident in the SG's distinct tone and beautiful appearance, it's clear to see why the SG remains the favourite amongst guitar players worldwide.

Wrapped with a sleek gloss nitrocellulose lacquer, pick up your 2018 SG Standard today in a choice of three beautiful finishes, Autumn Shade, Ebony or Heritage Cherry.
