You'll love the vintage tone paired with modern construction and reliability.

The 2017 SG Special T is the perfect guitar for the player who desires vintage looks and authentic Gibson tones, but also wants to get the best that Gibson's modern construction methods have to offer. A satin finish, nickel-plated hardware, and vintage-style keystone tuners give this SG Special the traditional vibe that we all love. Its slim-taper neck, modern pickups, and small-block inlays suit it to today's most demanding players—and it all comes at a truly stunning price for a genuine American-made Gibson guitar. Delivered in a padded gig bag with a strap and polishing cloth.

If you're lucky, you'll get a good one

Comments about Gibson 2017 SG Special T Electric Guitar:

The guitar sounds and plays great. Finish had a few rough spots that weren't sanded properly. The pickups sound perfect! Nice clear clean tone with great sustain and bite for dirty tones. The big problem...the neck was set incorrectly at the factory. Guitar intonation was terrible from the factory. So sharp on the G and low E strings that I ran out of adjustment room. Plus even though the action was correct now, the tune-o-matic thumb screw was as low as it could go on the treble side, which means no way to lower the action in the future if I change string gauges. I sent it back and asked for a personally inspected replacement.

Amazing playability.

Comments about Gibson 2017 SG Special T Electric Guitar:

This is my first time owning a Gibson. I've always played decent epiphones and fenders. Once I strapped this on and plugged it in, I knew my life had changed. This guitar is very well made, easy to play and beautiful. The price point is extremely fair for the quality. I've always dreamed of owning a SG. Now I do. This guitar is no joke.

    Comments about Gibson 2017 SG Special T Electric Guitar:

    Just picked this up, and still need to try it out with the full rig at full volume and with my standard strings (D'Addario NYXL).
    However, since I got it home I decided to play every Gilmour solo I know with crazy bends (like four half steps) and all, and it still was in tune after 2 hours of misstreatment with the factory set up.
    It has a rocky sound, wich goes well with my playing style of classical and latin rock, it will be interesting to try to get a clean tone however out of this beast..


    Great Product for the Price

    Comments about Gibson 2017 SG Special T Electric Guitar:

    I went into the shop thinking I wanted some type of Telecaster, but I left with one of these. I've never been an SG guy, but the vintage satin sunburst caught my eye and the price wasn't out of my range. It plays well and holds standard tuning. The weight (or lack of) is nice on the back. The pickups work great for rock and with the right amp and/or OD pedal, could probably do some more, "modern," metal but there are definitely better choices. They work well for what I typically play (punk, indie, hardcore), but I might consider swapping them out eventually.

    I've had it for six months and it's been my primary guitar since I bought it.

    Very well constructed. Great feel between grain and finish. Super inviting playability. Sharp looking- very sharp looking. Rock n roll classic in a slick- affordable package.
