      Comments about Gibson SG Special 2018 - Solid Body Electric Guitar:

      I used an 80's SG II for years with a single HB. Loved it, but thought I would grab something with a bit more pickup response. I had heard Gibson was having problems with QC for some time but also heard that 2017 was potentially a turnaround year. I received the guitar and it sounded as expected. The p.u.'s were great, everything looked good BUT 1) had it about a week and it wouldn't stay in tune 2) had unglued seams on both sides of the fretboard where it attaches to neck at headstock, and big separation right at neck and headstock (I could fit a credit card in it). 3) the headstock is coated in plastic. CHEEP! Never again.
