Overall: I don't care what anyone says, Gibson still makes excellent guitars. I got one of these in Cherry and it's completely exceeded my expectations. After a string change and slight truss rod and bridge adjustments to adapt to heavier strings, this thing ROCKS. Playability is superb, the neck shape is perfect for me, and it's a tone monster. I couldn't be happier.

Overall: Forget the '61 Reissue! This has all the same features, except for the larger headstock. Played this last weekend, and it sounds and feels great. Very light. I play Strat more than anything, and also have a Les Paul Studio. This thing is lighter than both. Just over 6 lbs! Great neck, with REAL ROSEWOOD. Of course, '57 Classic pickups sound great also. I haven't bought it yet, but might decide to before the 12-payment deadline. This one's a winner!!

Overall: What else can you say? It is awesome. I have wanted an SG for a long time, and this guitar fulfills everything I was looking for in an SG. The 60's neck is perfect, the 57 classic pickups are great! This guitar is well worth it. I don't know what took me so long to finally get one, but now that I have it, I am having trouble playing my other guitars! If you are thinking you want an SG, you cannot go wrong with this model.

Overall: I am really pleased with the look and feel of this guitar. I've owned the Epiphone copy of this and there just is no comparison to the Gibson SG. Everything about this guitars screams "play me". When I do play it it is just the right sound for what songs I use it for. Get this one if you can cause there is none other like it.
