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.

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.

          Comments about Gibson 2017 SG Standard T Electric Guitar:

          The warranty sucks, unless you buy a warranty fron Mf.It's not what a Gibson should be. If you are planning to gig with it the factort warranty is void. That's like buying a new car and not being able ro take it out of the garage. Shame ib you Gibson. Mt Fenders have lifetime warranties on craftmanshio

          Comments about Gibson 2017 SG Standard T Electric Guitar:

          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!

          Product is great but too many others sell the same product. No reason to have to put up with such bad service.
