The SR1820 features a walnut and flamed maple top on a double-cutaway Mahogany body bolted to a titanium reinforced panga panga and purpleheart Atlas neck with a 24-fret panga panga fingerboard with binding and abalone oval position markers. Components include a pair of Nordstrand Big Single passive pickups with an Ibanez custom preamp with a three-band EQ, a Mono-rail bridge with 19mm string spacing, a GraphTech Black TUSQ nut and Gotoh tuning machines.

For 2019 the body material was specified as African mahogany.
