I read the SG Standard HP gets the Rosewood & the SG Standard HP II gets the Richlite. I recently had the chance to play a 2018 SG Standard HP II & much to my surprise it was one of the best sounding easiest playing Gibson's I ever picked up off a guitar shops wall to play! This one had NO G-Farce tuners, an extremely solid feeling neck with little to no flex & a beautiful maple cap. The pickups were fvk'n impressive sounding & overall I was extremely impressed with this guitar! It has honestly been a long time since I ever felt that way about a Gibson right off the wall. No doubt in my mind Gibson is definitely doing something extremely 'right' making these SG HP beauties & I will have one to call mine someday soon!
