The SG I have has full rich bridge, combined and neck pickup tones. It's amazingly light, and practically begs you to play comfortably. I've owned another Gibson SG in the past which was also great. The bridge pickup has a tasteful high-end but still has the humbucker fatness, so it wails on leads. It's even sweet, full and bright for leads with little or no overdrive. The neck pickup is pretty deep. After A-B'ing a Gibson SG Special, with a Gibson Les Paul, I have to say the SG's a superior guitar. I can get pretty much the same slightly deeper tone out of the SG as the LP by simply turning the tone knob(s) down ever so slightly. Also, it has its own brigher tone that the LP doesn't have. Incidentally, we're talking very subtle tonal differences - they sounded almost the same. I timed the SG and the LP again and again to verify that contrary to popular belief, the SG sustained every but as long as the Les Paul. It's lighter, easier to play, offers a fretboard with more frets and a better range, and since it's not an archtop it costs less to make a high quality SG than a high quality LP, so it's more reasonably priced than a Les Paul.
It's got a tough sound, nice quality. something for more modern rock n roll. it's overall really nice.
I recently ordered a Left handed Sg Special from this site, and i have had nothing but good experiences with it. I have played multiple shows with my band, and i have found that this guitar performs well in any situation. whether i am playing a show or just practicing, i am impressed by the SG's sound and feel.
This is my fifth electric guitar and I have to say I was a little disappointed with the quality. Yes is a great sounding guitar and I'm not saying it's crap but I was just a little bummed out on the quality. Seems like they put more time and effort on the Les Paul model. I'd still buy it again though.
This guitar is obviously a killer when it comes to whatever style of music you're playing and the tone is exceptionally versatile. What bothers me is that us lefties have always pay a little extra for who we are. Hopefully that can change with a little bit of making sense. Other than that this guitar is all that its cracked up to be as long as your ready to crack up to be with it.
Personally, I think that Gibsons are the best, and that everyone should get one. They are light, slick design, and a great sound.
I have had this guitar for about a year now. It was my first electric and I must say that it is a great piece of work. I have always been in love with Gibsons so I just couldn't settle with a strat. My only problem was the action was too low and I got a buzz, lucky for us that can easily be fixed. The tone switches were fine and the neck was easy to play on. Tunning sometimes became a hassle, but any patient guitarist can deal with small detours to get the perfect finish.
I've had mine for about two years now, and it's still in great shape. It's taken a few beatings just being around me, but it's pretty durable. It's got a great sound pretty much no matter what you play it through. Very light, easy for me to move around with. The only real problem is the tuners. The G string through top E are constantly giving me problems so pretty much after every song I play, I have to retune them. Besides them, this is a great guitar.
