What Haworth Guitars say:
The Gibson SG Standard Guitar is a rock n roll icon which needs no introduction.
The 2018 Gibson SG Standard Electric Guitar has a solid mahogany body and mahogany neck which are key factors in that classic SG tone we all know and love. The neck is fast and easy to play with a slim taper profile and the locking machine heads are practical and make changing strings a dream.
The PAF-inspired 61R and 61T humbucker pickups give that classic, bold Gibson SG tone and the finer details such as the gloss nitrocellulose finish and rosewood fretboard with added binding, all add up to make the 2018 Gibson SG Standard Electric Guitar the high-quality classic rock instrument that it is.
With three finishes available including Autumn Shade, Ebony and Heritage Cherry, the Gibson SG 2018 Standard is a crowd favourite here at Haworth Guitars.
What Gibson has to say:
The new SG Standard guitar captures the essence of the groundbreaking SG of 1961 with the sonic characteristics that made this model a legend.
New and modern improvements include locking tuners and white fingerboard binding on a solid rosewood fingerboard.
The powerful, expressive tone is driven by a pair of humbuckers that are faithful recreations of the popular late-era PAF pickups.
