OVERVIEW

This is one of the most popular incarnations of the legendary SG.

The Gibson SG Standard Left-Handed Electric Guitar is It takes the best of the '62 original and adds the longer and sturdier neck joint of the late '60s models. Includes all the classic features you'd expect from a historic guitar. Original 490 Series humbuckers go from rich, sweet lightning to warm, tingling waves of sustain. A silky-fast rosewood fretboard plays like a dream. The original-style beveled mahogany body looks like a million bucks. Plus, there's an ABR bridge and chrome hardware. Why not play a true legend?

      Comments about Gibson SG Standard Left-Handed Electric Guitar:

      I must say, I love this guitar. It feels great in my hands, its lightweight, and plays like a dream.
      This is my favorite guitar that I have. Hope to do some recordings in a few months with it and see how that goes. I use this with a marshall halfstack avt and the tone is great.

      My father actually recommended this guitar to me as he has one built in the 60's that he stands by 100 percent. I now understand why.

          Calling all southpaws!! killer deal SG standard.
          Thanks to MF that sold me this SG in a less than the right handed model price-much less!..This doesn't happen too often with Gibsons who charge a "lefty taxes" on most of their models.

          This is my third SG and this black ace is just..gorgeous. Very fast delivery by MF.

          Comments about Gibson SG Standard Left-Handed Electric Guitar:

          This is the fourth new lefty Gibson SG I've owned since 1982. The other reviews I've written have complained (accurately)about Gibson's past quality issues. Somehow, the Nahville plant has gotten their act together and started pumping out high quality quitars at a level of craftsmanship not seen since the late 1960's. I am very pleased with this guitar! Not sure what type of wood is used on the fretboard on this 2012 model, but I love it way more than the old rosewood fretboards. The wood is dark, tight grained, smooth, and feels a lot like Ebony wood. Just awesome! The only bad thing was the case :( My 2006 SG Standard came in a nice case with dark grey lining that had a very stury combination lock. For 2012 Gibson has really cheaped out and sent the guitar in a white lined case with no lock (made in Canada, but saying "Gibson USA" in silk screen). The case has a disgusting chemical smell, and after a week of owning the guitar and leaving it outside its case, the guitar is still smelly. I have left the case open in the garage to air it out, hoping the smell will dissipate. It really is a cloying unpleasant smell. But, the good news is the guitar inside had flawless setup, finish and fretwork. I love this guitar! Anybody want a free case?

          Comments about Gibson SG Standard Left-Handed Electric Guitar:

          I listed a con, which isint in the SG, it was in me for not buying it sooner! My SG arrived PERFECT IN ITS CASE.....no setup needed,plays like a dream. On clean settings,warm with great sustain, add some OD and it growls, big time! I went over this guitar with a magnifiying glass ans, Im picky, but this guitar came perfect, even in just about perfect tune....This SG is the most versitle ax I own....I have a Les Paul (which is great, an american Strat with a maple fretboard and 2 electric/ acoustics but I cant put this SG down! Getting used to the slightly long neck and slightly thinner, bevled neck took about 10 minutes.Im a "hard sell" on opinions but all the positive feedback about this guitar is true! This SG has become my "workhorse" guitar. Most of the reviews were modest, this baby looks & plays too sweet! Oh, the cut of wood (I got the heritage cherry) is so beautiful with the cherry finsh, complimenting the woods grain.In 4 days now,Im playing so much better and even singing again! Best purchase Ive EVER made....Gibson's QC is outstanding! Ill NEVER buy anymore guitars or accessories from any where but Musicians Friend! Great products, knowlagable techs & sales team and M/F works with you on great discounts and service!!! Musicians Friend...YOU ROCK!!! The warrenty hwas equally great! my 5th guitar from MF, Ive never been even a little disipointed!

          For the money this guitar can't be beat. Great build quality and set up great out of the box. i owned a SG a bunch of years ago and didn't care for it much. This time around I am very impressed. Gibson is doin it right these days.

          Comments about Gibson SG Standard Left-Handed Electric Guitar:

          It's nice to have an SG again. Like all the others I've had, I don't want to change anything. It holds tune well and the pickups sound great. I got mine used from here and the only things I could find were some scratches on the back and some dust on it. Practically brand new. I saw the price and decided it was time to get a nice guitar again. It plays like a dream too, low action, light weight, nice cutting tone. A very nice complement to my other guitars. And it even smells nice too. Sounds odd, but if you have one you know what I mean.

          being a lefty sucks when it comes to guitars but this one is well worth it. you can probably even get one used off ebay for under a grand if you wanted. long neck plays well,took a min to get adjusted to the narrow frets, easy axis to the high frets. body is light but still has sustain. i upgraded the pups because mine were old and had gone micro-phonic. its a great guitar and had been my work horse for along time.

          Comments about Gibson SG Standard Left-Handed Electric Guitar:

          Guitar arrived within 5 days of ordering. Opened the case for the first time and was awe-struck! Absolutely beautiful and flawless, fanastic quality control. The pics don't do it justice as the wood grain does show through, and its smokin hot! Beautiful instrument, well built, plays straight from the moment it arrived with low action and not one dead spot or buzzing anywhere on the neck. P'ups sound great, and it is suprisingly light, I could wear this baby all day. In my 20 years of playing, this is the ONLY guitar I've purchased wherein I did not want to change, modify, replace or upgrade anything. Simply pleased, way to go Gibson! If you can't afford it now, finance it! After playing my SG, I regret all the junk I've purchased over the years!!!
