First SG - direct hit

ChrisD1rt1gtr, 01.06.2018
I use the SG for a hardrock band in the style of something between Guns n 'Roses, Judas Priest and the Backyard Babies.

Processing:
The guitar comes in a beautiful Gibson case and offers a very hot sight the first time you open it and you want to unpack it and get started. The workmanship is impeccable. The factory setup was very good and the guitar "out of the box" good playable. Only the fingerboard was very dry, which is relatively normal, and with a little fingerboard oil to get a grip quickly. The frets are very well trained, there is nothing scratching. The neck profile is relatively thin; the neck allows for very low strings.
The locking tuners work well and are a nice thing.
On the strap, the SG hangs nicely balanced. You can already tell that the body is lighter than many other guitars, but as top-heavy I would not describe them.

sound:
Dry played, the SG sounds right, really cool and is in the discipline the number 1 among my guitars. Heavy bass and very present mids and high centers? very good sustain and great response.
At the amp, the mids and high centers are just as cool and beautiful "dirty". The output of the pickups I would settle in the upper medium range? from the noise similar to the "Duncan Custom SH5", which I have installed in another guitar. At the Marshall JVM, the SG tends to slosh on the deep sides with power chords. But only at higher gain settings. This is better, but not optimal, in the moderate context. This is definitely even better. And thus the transition to the point

Electronics:
If you want to change the pickups / pots and open the e-compartment, you look at a board on which toggle, pickups and Input Jack are each connected with plugs.
You should know that if you, like me, often experimented with the electronics.
I will throw out the board and replace it with a conventional wiring.

Conclusion:
For me a direct hit. Only the pickups do not give the cool dry sound of the guitar for my taste 100%? but that can be changed, if a bit awkward, "Thanks? Circuit board. The most important - namely basic sound, workmanship and the hardware "are impeccable - I can highly recommend the 2018 SG.

Good quality, excellent sound, beautiful design and perfect delivery

joancatala, 05.07.2018
Well, what could I say? It arrived packed in two boxes, a large one from Thoman and inside, another large box from Gibson USA. And inside, all padded, the solid brown and gold clasps with the Gibson brand on the front of the case. A precious one already.

It is striking how finite the case is, I love it! the guitar fits just right.

Once the cover is open, you have the precious SG Standard Black guitar, all clean and impeccable, with the golden peqatina and the plasticized protector (it can be removed if you wish with the nail, but I always leave this protector for a while in any new product I bought, even if it's not a guitar).

It comes with accessories: an original Gibson strap, allen tools and several booklets.

The guitar is very comfortable, nacre details on the neck, the new strings are very good and very close to the mast. I have tried all the pills, tone buttons and volumes and everything is perfect. A delight is Gibson SG Standard 2018, really.

My favorite style is hardcore / punk, but I also play classical things without distortion, I practice pentatonic scales and group riffs that are cool to me and I am very satisfied with the ease you take with this guitar.

Size and weight, ideal. Especially when you come to play with electroacoustic guitars. The body is very comfortable and I have adapted immediately.
