Amazing instrument, would definitely buy again

Comments about Gibson SG Standard HP 2018 Electric Guitar:

I picked up a guitar with the cobalt fade over a month ago and it plays beautifully. It is a gorgeous guitar and is one of the easiest guitars to play due to an incredibly smooth, low action. The G-force tuner works perfectly - my only issue with it initially was that one of the strings came tuned an octave low. This required some troubleshooting as every time the G-force would say it was in tune, the one string would be tuned way too low. Since I have reset that, there have been no issues with the tuner at all. The tuner itself is definitely worth it as it saves me substantial time, especially if I want to frequently change keys in the middle of practicing/jamming. It is 1 month out from when I first played it, and I am still very happy with my purchase. I have been traveling and as such have been playing with an apogee jam so I cannot give a good assessment of the sound quality, but will say that with the apogee, I can make this guitar sound as clear, crisp, or distorted as I want (I don't know how this compares with other guitars using an apogee). Yes, this is an expensive guitar, but you get what you pay for. I would definitely buy this again. Plus, this guitar came with one of the nicest, steel guitar cases I have ever seen, though it alone weighs something like 25 pounds.

    Comments about Gibson SG Standard HP 2018 Electric Guitar:

    I just picked up my SG in the cobalt fade and it looks even better than it does here. It is absolutely beautiful. The action is perfect, it plays itself. I was a little worried about the G Force tuner from the other reviews but mine works great it's amazing, you just strum the strings and the guitar tunes itself in about 15 seconds. I fell in love with this guitar the first time I picked it up. I'm so impressed with it I'm going to order a matching Les Paul. Thank you Gibson for still making dreams come true.
