Just purchased the SG Gibson. Absolutely hassle free from start to finish to my front door in two days. Out of the box this baby was actually in tune to play. And what an enjoyable piece of workmanship. Made not 50 miles from my home in Nashville. You just can’t go wrong with this guitar.

"Excellence. A pure SG experience"
Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
I have owned 15 SGs. This is #16 and the only ones Ive had that could beat this were CS pieces and when I say "beat" its a pretty narrow margin. There is nothing that feels cheap or subpar. The new neck profile is thin with nice rounded shoulders giving it a fat neck comfort. The Vintage Cherry is thin and not overpowering and lets all the beautiful mahogany wood grain explode from this and its VERY grainy. Great looking board on it. Every edge is crisp, defined and deliberate. I was worried it wouldn't stack up to the new higher price tag but Ill have to say the small price bump vs the quality of what you get makes it well worth the price of admission. You finally feel like you're getting the right bang for your buck from Gibson again. The quality control is pretty impressive. The new pots Gibson are using are very responsive. The new cases are much more heavy duty. Setup was almost perfect out of the box. It was on my doorstep in less than 24hrs. If you're on the fence, get off of it and get on board. 12 pays, 0%, to your house lightning fast and worth every last penny.
