Out Of Stock
Up for sale, a 2018 Gibson SG Standard in exceptional, 100% original condition and in perfect working order, complete with the original hardshell case and hangtags. Evoking the look and feel of a 1961 SG Standard, this modern iteration of the iconic SG platform features 61R/61T PAF-style humbuckers and a gloss nitro lacquer Autumn Shade finish.

Tonewoods include a mahogany body and one-piece mahogany neck capped by a bound rosewood fretboard. At 7lbs 1oz, this Gibson is featherweight, and acoustically the instrument offers a big barking acoustic sound, very open and present, translating well through the PAF-style 61 humbuckers. These pickups are dynamic and detailed, with a growl and cut in the bridge position, and smooth, harmonically-rich heft at the neck. Professionally setup here at Mike & Mike's Guitar Bar, this SG has been freshly restrung with 10-46 strings, low action and accurate intonation.

The one-piece mahogany neck has Gibson’s SlimTaper slender C-shaped profile carve with round shoulders, measuring .810” deep at the 1st fret and .885” at the 12th. The rosewood fretboard features pearloid trapezoid inlay, with rolled binding edges for added comfort and medium jumbo fretwire that has plenty of meat and crown, showing only light wear beneath the plain strings on frets 1-3. This guitar plays cleanly up the 24 3/4” scale with a straight neck and a responsive, optimally-adjusted truss rod. The nut measures a full 1 11/16” in width. The headstock sports an “SG”-embossed bell-shaped truss rod cover, and the chrome-plated Grover Rotomatic locking tuners turn smoothly and hold accurate pitch.

All of the electronics function as intended, with the 61T/61R humbuckers wired to the stock harness and governed by typical SG controls; a three-way pickup selector switch and dedicated Volume and Tone controls for each humbucker. The chrome plating on the hardware shines like new, including the Tune-o-matic bridge and corresponding stopbar. Plastics comprise the original quartet of black bonnet knobs and the multi-ply pickguard. This is an exceedingly well-kept guitar, with cosmetic wear on the gloss Autumn Shade lacquer finish limited to one microscopic nick on top behind the bridge and some light finish scratches in the clear coat across the back. The smooth gloss finish on the neck profile is flawless.

The original Gibson-branded hardshell case with white plush interior is included, along with the hangtags and case candy.
