Gibson SG Standard 2018 Autumn Shade Guitar

The Gibson SG Standard Electric Guitar, Autumn Shade (2018) blends the historical look and tone of the SG guitar with contemporary performance and versatility to create an incredibly powerful instrument. Its body is crafted from lightweight mahogany and features comfortable contours and its iconic twin horn cutaway design, providing players with an incredible playing experience with full access to the fingerboard. The slim taper neck also adds to the SG's comfortable performance, while the rosewood fingerboard provides extra dynamics and depth for an improved tonality. The two powerful humbuckers deliver PAF-inspired tones, providing beautifully vintage tones with plenty of projection for solos and crushing rifts. Locking kidney tuners and a tune-o-matic bridge enhance the guitar's string stability and sustain, while the tektoid nut increases harmonics in the middle and upper frequencies. Delivered in a hardshell case for protection, the Gibson SG Standard embodies the essence of the SG guitar from the 60s for a truly legendary performance.

The Iconic SG Style

The Standard Gibson features the iconic SG styled body crafted from lightweight mahogany, delivering a stunning appearance with a beautifully sweet, warm tonality. Its twin-horn cutaway design not only looks fierce, but provides incredible access to the upper frets for excellent freedom across the entire fingerboard. The mahogany is finished in a stunning autumn shade which shows off the natural figuring of the wood, while its thin and smooth design ensures players receive an incredibly comfortable performance.

Slim Taper Mahogany Neck

The Gibson guitar not only offers a comfortable body, but features a slim tapered neck profile to deliver an incredibly comfortable performance. The mahogany neck provides the ultimate comfort with its slim profile, and allows for fast and comfortable soloing. As well as providing fluid hand flexibility, the mahogany wood helps enhance the natural warmth of the body, creating a high-end saturated in sparkling sweetness and a thick low-end response. The addition of a rosewood fingerboard helps enhance the natural characteristics of the body, adding extra sparkle to the high end and opening up the midrange.

61T & 61R Humbuckers For PAF Inspired Tones

As well as offering a classic SG appearance, the Gibson Standard is equipped with 61R and 61T humbucker pickups for delivering incredibly versatile tones. The powerful duo of humbuckers are perfect for achieving that classic PAF tone, with extra projection for soloing and times when more power is needed. Independent volume and tone controls provide excellent tone shaping, while the toggle switch offers a range of tonal possibilities.

Aluminium Tune-O-Matic Bridge

The 2018 SG Electric Guitar features an aluminium Tune-O-Matic bridge, which is an extremely popular fixed bridge type due to its stability, reliability, comfortable playing position, and impressive sustain. Adjusting the string action and intonation is extremely simple with a tune-o-matic bridge, as you simply adjust its height with the mounting rods to alter the action, and screw the bridge saddles in or out to achieve perfect intonation.

TekToid Nut

The addition of a TekToid graphite nut offers increased harmonics in the middle and upper frequency range, perfect for creating a rich and detailed tone. TekToid Graphite is the best high-tech cure for eliminating undesirable friction within the nut, which can cause tuning problems. It is the ideal choice for a guitar nut, as it has excellent conductive qualities which overall benefit a guitar’s tone and sustain.
