A modern take on the iconic SG: the Gibson USA SG Standard 2018 Electric Guitar.

The Gibson USA SG Standard 2018 holds true to legendary sound and style of its predecessors while offering modern playability and performance. The SG Standard 2018 sports that famed double-horned solid mahogany body along with a fast SlimTaper mahogany neck and a rosewood fretboard with comfortably rolled white binding for an outstanding playing feel. Delivering that renowned vintage SG tone that helped make the originals the legends that they are today, the SG Standard 2018 comes equipped with a pair of 61R and 61T humbuckers inspired by those late-era PAF pickups. The perfect blend of contemporary and classic, the SG Standard 2018 comes complete with cryogenically-treated frets, a set of modern locking Kidney button tuners, and a traditional aluminum Tune-O-Matic bridge/stopbar tailpiece combo. Includes hardshell case and Gibson Accessory Kit.

Gibson's Great Update


Gibson's classic SG Guitar has undergone a smart, cool little update that's sure to please newcomers and classic hard-rock fans alike. Though not necessarily too new on a surface level, some subtle little design choices have given it the some cool little throwbacks to a classic sound while keeping up-to-date with modern technology. The updated pair of humbuckers (61R and 61T) are inspired by the classic sound of the PAF pickups; The modern locking tuners are a smart choice as well to modernize a classic. Outside of these choices, the traditional greats are still their for the SG: color choices, neck and bridge design. Classic and hard rock fans should seriously look into updating their SG to something of this caliber. This is a Sam Ash employee review.

Rock n' Roll classic


This guitar begs to let loose and rock! It's got classic double cutaway styling that makes for easy access to the upper frets and a very comfortable slim profile neck that makes it hard to put down. The pickups offer solid crunch that you would expect for this rocking guitar, but they also have good clarity when playing clean. Locking tuners are an excellent addition to ensure tuning stability and the addition of a multi tool makes easy adjustments to your guitar convenient.

Real Gibson with new add ons!


This is the way an SG should be! The slim taper neck is really fast and easy to play. The new Grover locking tuners help strings stay in tune quite a bit better than the standard Grovers, especially for those players that do a lot of reinforced bending. -This is a staff review by skern at Sam Ash Indianapolis 57
