Manufacturer's ID: GSG1820VW

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.

Body Material / Structure

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 SG1/2/3000, 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.

Seymour Duncan ‘59 Pickups

A classic, warm humbucker with smooth midrange and rich high-end. Works perfectly with SG1820 to give a hot-vintage tone with plenty of presence and depth.

Fingerboard

With countless custom-shop artist-specced SGs being produced with Rosewood fingerboards instead of the traditional SG’s ebony board, we selected premium rosewood for the fingerboard on the new SGs. A warm, well-balanced tone and great feel match modern tones and playing styles perfectly.

Electronics

Super-premium electronic parts are selected for the new SG guitars only after meeting Yamaha’s exhaustive testing criteria. Our choice of the finest switches and pots, the same as those chosen by pro guitar techs on stages all over the world, means that you can step on stage night after night confident that all of the little details are taken care of.

TonePros Bridge and Tailpiece

TonePros’ lighter bridge and tailpiece design enhances the vibration of the guitar’s body by reducing the mass of the metal parts. The locking design ensures the bridge and tailpiece are tightly anchored on their mounting studs for ultra-efficient vibration transfer, maximizing sustain and improving clarity.

Grover Locking Tuners

The SG’s strings are locked in place at the post to ensure zero slippage and complete tuning stability along with quick, efficient string changes.

Graph Tech Nut

Graph Tech captures the best properties of bone nuts - exceptional resonance, amazing clarity and smooth sustain - while improving on them with permanent lubrication, better longevity and easier cutting.
