      Comments about Gibson 2017 SG Special Zebra Electric Guitar:

      This was my first Gibson. I had been looking at SGs and the look of this one convinced me to pull the trigger. The neck is much smoother than other Specials I had played on. You can feel the resonance throughout the guitar and in the neck, which gives it an awesome feel while you play.

      In the middle position it really sings when playing cleans, and set to the bridge it has a lot of great crunch without becoming harsh.

      Well worth the money.
