Gibson 2016 SG Standard T Guitar

When the original Les Paul evolved into the Les Paul/SG Standard in 1961, the transition embodied Les Paul's vision for a sleek, powerful, contemporary solid-body electric guitar. The distinctive new double-cutaway guitar--now simply known as the SG--was an overnight success, and became a major rock and blues icon by the late '60s. The new SG Standard 2016 T embodies all the tone, feel, and look of the original rendition of this legendary guitar, all wrapped into a design that remains one of the most versatile guitars available today.

Customer Reviews
4.5 out of 5 (19 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "2016 SG Standard T ( Heritage Cherry )"
Overall: I was guitar shopping and was going to buy a Gibson Les Paul Studio faded until a friend who is more into guitars lead me to the SG standard T and after comparing the two and factoring in my needs it was obvious that the SG Standard was a better fit for me. The guitar came out of its padded case with flawless looks and exceptional quality. The tone and volume pots were slightly bent and I had to delicately position them back into place. My guitar stays in tune and with some minor adjustments the instrument has no problems with intonation. The pick ups sound good clean or distorted through my tube amp. I own several cheaper guitars that sound good but the Gibson SG Standard T looks, sounds and feels better than them. I'm happy with this particular guitar and look forward to buying different Gibsons in the future.
Style of Music: Classical influences, Blues, Hard rock, Metal, Spanish influences.

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "SG = cost-effective tone-monster"
Overall: I have played guitar for 25 years. I studied music in college and guitar was my instrument of emphasis. I taught private lessons for several years. The guitar by which I compare all others is my 2013 Gibson Custom Les Paul Axcess stoptail - truly, an amazing guitar. Now that you know a little about my background and basis of comparison; here's my review. This is the second SG Standard I received from zZounds after the first one arrived without a back plate and with a pickup squeal. The second one is notably lighter than the first and the neck and action required some serious attention before it was even playable. I've come to expect the need to set up my own guitars but when you pay over a grand for an instrument, I really feel it should arrive pretty close to ideal. Again, this one was barely playable and it took hours to get right. The finish on this SG is perfect. The tone of this guitar is exactly what you want from a Gibson: big, ballsy, crunchy goodness. Sustain is every bit as good as any of my Les Pauls. These pickups are pretty hot but clean up fairly well. This guitar will appeal to a lot of players for many styles. For a professional-level instrument, it is very affordable. I would recommend this guitar for the working musician who wants great Gibson tone and playability without the heavy Les Paul body weighing him (or her) down night after night; also, this would be a wonderful guitar for the advanced student player who wants to take his (or her) tone to the next level.
Style of Music: Any that can be played with a guitar!
