This is the standard model of the SG1820 series and the guitar all of the new SGs are based on. Its spec and appearance are based on feedback from the artists who were involved in its development in Tokyo, London and YASH in Hollywood. SG1820s are all handmade at YMC in Japan and feature the custom-shop parts relied on by professionals for tour-ready tone, feel and reliability.
While preserving the basic structure of Maple Top/Mahogany Back and SG’s iconic double cutaway design, the body of SG1820 was redesigned to capture the sound and look which today’s guitarists want. The contoured body top curves more deeply than previous models - the top arc of the curve, the center part of the body, has optimized wood-mass to maximise string-body vibration from the from the bridge and tailpiece. The deep curve maintains the guitar’s optimum weight balance and enhances the SG’s stunning shape. The back contour featured on SG1/2/300, designed for increased comfort when the guitar was played high on the strap, has been modified to a flat back on the new SGs. The new flat back design increases the volume of Mahogany to significantly increase the low-mid response and presence while reflecting ergonomics needed for the lower stance modern players take with SGs.
