"Classic Gibson sg humbucker tone"
Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
All of the great sg with humbuckers tone is definitely in this guitar. Angus buck dharma Tipton randy Holden Krieger blackmore Graham Oliver all played this particular model of sg and now its available to the masses. I got mine in blemished ebony finish but couldn't find any flaws. Overall I am happy with this purchase and would recommend this guitar if you're looking for a good Gibson sg but want all of the fancy appointments that upper mid range to higher end Gibson SGs have like the sg standards reissue and the custom shops have like block inlays and binding
Like I said before all of the full pickguard sg player tone is there from buck dharma (my main influence) Angus young Glenn Tipton Krieger and iommi are all there in this guitar.
Nothing is wrong with this guitar. I wish the full pickguard sgs had whammy bars like Robby Krieger or the Angus young signature models have but you're going to pay top dollar for those models. Other than that I can live without a whammy bar
Ease of Use
Plug and play. I am currently playing through a battery powered laney mini super group amp but in the near future I will buy either a Marshall studio 20 plexi combo an origin 5 combo an older Mesa boogie subway rocket reverb combo or a Hughes and kettner 25th combo
Well made better made than my set neck dean gran sport I purchased earlier this year
Manufacturer Support
Never had to deal with them but when I did I got someone on the phone and they were nice
Musical Background:
This makes it 15 years since I picked up the electric guitar
Musical Style:
I play older blues from the 50s blues rock from the 60s hard rock from the 70s and power metal from the 80s
