I was surprised to see 2018 SG Std. Basses back out on the Sweetwater site. They have the Heritage Cherry, Walnut, and will be getting the SG Std. in Ebony. I placed an order for a Heritage Cherry. I'm hoping it shows up on Tuesday of next week.

The 2018 is almost identical to the 2015. One thing changed from the 2015, the fretboard inserts are not Mother of Pearl on the 2018.

I played the SG Std. today for about an hour, and didn't want to stop. It sounds great, and plays great also. The frets are dressed very well. This is one of the nicest SG Std.'s I've had in a long time. I have a Walnut SG Std. on order as well. it's really great that Gibson has turned out the 2018 bass series.

The 2018 SG Std. basses are coming out with plain black rod adjustment covers. I called Gibson to see if I could order an SG stamped one. They told me Gibson isn't doing anymore SG stamped rod adjustment covers. Luckily I had one from a couple of years ago. That went on the Heritage Cherry SG. I did find one on eBay for my 2018 Walnut SG Std. when it shows up. I just like the looks of the stamped SG rod adjustment cover.

The 2018 SG Std. Walnut showed up today. It looks amazing as well. What ever problems I had in the past with the QC coming out of the Gibson factory, sure doesn't apply to these two SG Std.'s. they really are great!

The D'Addario ETB92M Nylon strings, and the SG truss rod cover came in today. I've installed the strings, and the cover. Photos tomorrow, it looks pretty good.

The Walnut does have a decent grain in the body.
