      Comments about Gibson SG Special T 2017 Electric Guitar:

      It's a great Sg. Bare bones, all you need and then some. I like the 70's inspired inlays. I like the stock 490r & 490t. They DELIVER that classic SG sound. You do have full size buckers though if you wish to swap them out. Now, the set up and lack of 5th star. I needed to tweak the truss rod and bridge and set intonation. Of my 5 SG's bought in the last 10 yrs, this one was, dare I say, not set up beyond putting the strings on it. I bought a '16 Faded Special too about two weeks after this one and that set up was perfect. The '17 Special T has that thin SG neck and maybe storage caused it to bow a bit. Temps were freezing?
      The '16 Faded has a thicker 50's profile rounded neck that would be a bit more stable. After the set up on the '17 Special T, it plays like a dream. If you're one who does their own set ups, buy one. They are beautiful guitars. The frets were smooth and perfectly level. This model is plek'ed and it shows.
