OVERVIEW

The flagship SG, with classic looks and sound, plus modern American craftsmanship.

When the double-cutaway SG was unveiled as the (temporary) replacement for the original single-cutaway Les Paul in 1961 it quickly proved itself far more than just a stand-in. An overnight success, this innovative guitar quickly became a favorite with rock, blues and jazz players and more. The flagship of the SG range, the SG Standard 2017 T represents a superb blend of historic looks, tone, contemporary versatility and playability. Its iconic asymmetrical double-horned body styling and smaller "teardrop" pickguard harken back to the originals of the early ’60s, and the Classic ’57 humbuckers likewise take you straight back to those hallowed PAF tones. When uncompromising performance matters, locking Grover kidney-button tuners, a slim-taper neck and rosewood fingerboard with rolled binding, Gibson's finest modern aluminum Tune-O-Matic bridge and stop bar tailpiece with elegant chrome plating provide a stylish and modern SG playing experience. The SG Standard 2017 T is delivered in a classic Gibson hardshell case with a Gibson multi-tool, a premium leather strap and a polishing cloth.

This guitar is great. I love everything about it, the slim nek is so smooth to play, the pickups sounds great either clean or distorted. The only thing I didn't like is the pickguard, I like the full size pickguard, but other than that, this guitar is a monster, a must have!

Great Guitar Right Out of the Case !!

By Boogie Boy

from Chicago

Comments about Gibson 2017 SG Standard T Electric Guitar:

Great guitar right out the case. No adjustments. Sounds terrific with Fender Blues Junior. .009 a little light and will change to heavier gauge. Nice classic Gibson case, strap and tool kit is a nice touch and a pic of guitar on final workbench ! Buy two !

    Comments about Gibson 2017 SG Standard T Electric Guitar:

    I bought one of these black 2017 SG standards from MF back in November.
    I was reluctant to go with Gibson because throughout the years all you here from the Gibson purists is how quality control has gone WAY down and all the new designs are trash and how Gibson has gone downhill blah, blah, blah... I started playing back in '89, I played B.C.Rich, Ibanez, Washburn, esp/LTD, Epiphone & Fender but never even held a Gibson until I bought this and all I have to say is "what took me so long"? This SG is a flawless machine made for jammin! The '57 Classic pickups are amazing for heavy distortion or light dirty tones, really hot & smooth. And they are 4 conductor wiring even though the stock pots aren't push/pull so there's the possibility of more wiring options if desired. Overall I've been extremely impressed with my first Gibson experience.

      Comments about Gibson 2017 SG Standard T Electric Guitar:

      It would have been 5 stars if the bridge pick up ring and pick up were mounted correctly. As soon as I opened the case I noticed the bridge pick up was crooked. I could see that the pick up ring was not flush with the body. I took the pick guard off and loosened up the ring and pick up. Put it all back together and it was perfect. I set up the guitar to my liking and I couldn't be happier. It plays, sounds and looks great! Gibson also throws in some great case candy, multi-tool, leather strap and a picture on the work bench. Hopefully my issue was caused in shipping because I don't see how he did dot notice the pick up.

          • Need To Clean Too Often
          • Poorly Wound Gibson Strings

          Best Uses

          • Everything

          Comments about Gibson 2017 SG Standard T Electric Guitar:

          The piano finish on this guitar is so shiny, all of your fingerprints show up clear as day, constantly have to wipe them off. Especially on the pickups and tuning pegs, everything with a chrome finish loves to show filth. Also, the back of the neck is hard to slide up and down on if you are sweaty, but you get used to it after one or two days. Otherwise, i am very impressed with this beautiful instrument, and highly recommend it. The other problem, was the strings it came with. They were put straight through the hole, and not even wound a whole time, and the excess was trimmed off. As soon as I tuned it up to play, the tension was too much and they started coming off. Had to buy new strings, but the instrument is outstanding.

            Great guitar has great feel because of the lighter wood but the best thing is the finish it's so cool I don't think you can find a better looking SG. Mine was a open box so saved some money had no noticeable blemish. Looks awesome next to my Dean acoustic and the Tabaco burst telecaster. I'm in guitar heaven!!
