Gibson USA 2018 SG Standard HP, Blood Orange Fade
New for 2018, GAK are proud to present the new Gibson USA range of electric guitars!
The SG was originally introduced as the new 'Les Paul' model in 1961 as an attempt to create a lighter, double cutaway guitar which offered better access to the higher frets. Initial sales were good, however Les Paul eventually asked for the guitar to be renamed, Gibson called the guitar the SG. The SG has been a mainstay in the Gibson lineup ever since and has been the axe of choice for touring and recording artists the world over.
The Gibson USA 2018 SG Standard HP (High Performance) brings cutting edge innovation and technology to this fantastic design to make it Gibson's most advanced SG playing experience to date.
Retaining popular features from previous HP models, the Gibson USA 2018 SG Standard HP has a slim taper neck profile, increased thickness Mahogany body and neck with axcess heel, AA figured Maple top, next-generation G-Force automatic tuners, soloist neck width, adjustable titanium nut with zero fret and adjustable bridge saddles.
Pickups are Gibson '57 Classic and Super Classic humbuckers with 2 x push/pull pots with DIP switch, which allows you to access more tones than ever before. This is a seriously versatile instrument which takes the SG experience to a whole new level!
