Ok, so I got my 2018 Standard a week ago Friday. I refrained from posting a NGD thread right away, I just wanted to play the guitar for a bit, to allow myself to settle in to it, figure out any quirks and kinda get past the initial honeymoon phase. Well, let me say, truly, this guitar is great! It seems like every time I get another Gibson (this is my 3rd in about a year) they just keep getting better and better! I traded my 2018 Les Paul Studio for this on Kijiji. It was a very very annoying experience, but at least it worked out in the end lol. So far, I'm really enjoying the guitar, the biggest surprise being the neck pickup. It's really open and chimey. It's the first neck pickup that I can say I really like in quite a long time. The SG is really neck heavy.. I always play standing up and I have a decent Levy's strap, so it's not an issue for me, but for anyone who doesn't, I can see that being a pain. Overall, I couldn't be more happy with it. The only thing I will be changing will be the knobs for a set of silver insert top hats.. Anyway...PICS!!
