I LOVE my 2018 Standard now! I got this guitar in early 2019 and it sounded good, but not great. I dabbled with putting a Les Trem on it for a while (I didn’t dig it) and fiddled with the pickups a bit. I knew I liked the pickups, as I had a 2019 Les Paul Standard with the 61s in it, and I loved it. I used to think that the SG didn’t work as well with the 61s. I started fiddling with more focus and I got the pickup heights dialed in just right. The bridge pickup is higher than I expected, but man this thing screams, and has a grind, power and clarity to it I LOVE. Then I finally took it for it’s warranty set up and this thing is just perfect now. I am so happy with this guitar! Sounds great! Plays great! Looks great! SG’s are frickin’ great!
