Overall: Gibson hit a home run wth the SG Modern, Maple top, 24 frets, mother of pearl inlay, Burstbucker pro in the neck, Burstbucker pro + in the bridge, coil tapping, this SG is the best playing and sounding SG I have ever played in my 45 years of playing, Ive played many SGs over the years but none like this one, the neck feels amazing, different than other slim tapper profile necks, has more beef. Finish looks awesome on the blueberry fade I purchased, love this guitar.

Overall: Love it. Plays great and stays in tune great tone. I have owned a few epiphone sg models, but this one blows them away. I put it in my cart like 20 times till my 4 year old hit place order. Will be his someday so let it ride. I would recommend this guitar.

Sound: For hard rock and blues, the bright , punchy tone is perfect. I listen to all kinds of music , but i enjoy playing rock , blues, and a bit of metal. So this guitar fits me like a glove. Feature: The push / pull pots are great. Keep them down and youll have a classic humbucker sound, lift the knobs, and a good single coil sound . very very versatile. Ease of Use: Once you get the hang of the push / pull pots..the sky is the limit. And without the les paul weight. Value: Well...yes this guitar comes with a hardshell case. And yes its worth the $$ Manufacturer Support: N/a The Wow Factor: Hmmm....well. Ill idmit , its not a " flashy " guitar, its simple and practical. But the maple finish is pleasant to look at. Overall: The day i got the guitar, i had a hard time putting it down, imany complain about the burstbucker pickups . saying they are harsh sounding..but for hard rock , or heavy blues, they are perfect. The sound packs a serious punch. The push/ pull knobs are brilliant, you have the choice of a humbucker , or a p-90 tone at your finger tips. This guitar is actually lighter then a standard sg. But plays more like a les paul.Making this guitar a hybrid. If you play rock. or blues, i highly suggest this guitar. Jazz players may want to avoid.
