Contemporary SG Standard-style tone and playability, the Gibson SGJ Electric Guitar delivers at an unprecedented price. To celebrate the 120th Anniversary of the world’s most respected guitar maker, Gibson USA has unveiled an entire new lineup that represents several of the greatest values ever offered in hand-made American electric guitars. The SGJ14 is a prime example: backed by a wealth of innovation and experience, it’s a genuine Gibson at every turn, at a lower price than you ever thought possible.

Gibson SGJ Electric Guitar Features:

  • Body: Mahogany
  • Neck: Maple, SG Slim Profile
  • Fingerboard: 24-Fret Rosewood, Dot Inlays with 120TH Anniversary Banner
  • Hardware: Satin Chrome Tune-o-Matic, vintage style tuners
  • Electronics: New ’61 Zebra Humbucker
  • Plastics: New Black Max Grip Speed Knobs
  • Case: Premium Gig Bag
Supreme Feel and Tone with Outstanding Value - Ready to Rock, Remarkably Affordable
Between its genuine Gibson humbucking pickups, classic tonewoods, a fast and comfortable neck profile, and uncompromising Gibson construction quality, the SGJ14 nails every expectation from a great Gibson electric guitar. Add in a raft of innovative new features for 2014, finish it in your choice of Satin Cherry, Satin Chocolate, Rubbed Vintage Burst Satin, Vintage Sunburst Satin, or Fireburst Satin, and the new SGJ14 looks as great as it feels and sounds. (For a nominal upcharge, the SGJ14 is available as the SGM, equipped with Gibson’s Min-ETune automated tuning system.)

The raw and ready SGJ14 derives its timeless Les Paul-style tone from Gibson’s new ’61 Zebra humbucking pickups, crafted in the image of the hallowed original PAF humbuckers, but updated for the power and versatility required by today’s music. Further 2014 120th Anniversary additions include new larger no-slip strap buttons, black Max Grip Speed Knobs, a TekToid nut, long-life proprietary coated guitar strings, cryogenic treated fret wire for longer life and corrosion resistance, a full PLEK setup, and a 120th Anniversary logo inlay at the 12th fret. Put it all together with the legendary Gibson playability, and the new SGJ14 is ready to rock, at a truly breathtaking price.

Body and Neck
The SGJ14 is crafted in the image of the original SG Standard, with an asymmetrical double-cutaway body for excellent upper-fret access. It’s made from solid mahogany, with a glued-in maple neck with a ‘50s profile. The rosewood fingerboard is topped with a TekToid nut, and carries 24 cryogenic-treated frets for long life and corrosion resistance, with dot inlays and a commemorative 120th Anniversary inlay at the 12th fret.

Pickups and Electronics
The guitar carries a pair of Gibson’s new ’61 Zebra humbucking pickups in the neck and bridge position. These pickups are built with the power to rock, excelling in heavy crunch and wailing lead tones, yet the clean up beautifully for mellower moments, adapting themselves to your every need. They are wired through the traditional complement of independent volume and tone controls, and a three-way selector switch.

Hardware
Following the stripped-down ethos of the SGJ14, the guitar carries no pickguard and the minimum of ready-to-rock hardware. A satin chrome Tune-o-matic bridge and stopbar tailpiece anchor it all down for outstanding resonance and sustain, while retro tulip-button tuners retain a vintage look, and enlarged strap buttons (new for 2014) keep your guitar secure throughout the set.

Case and Coverage
The SGJ14 comes protected in a Gibson gig bag, includes a truss-rod wrench and owner’s manual, and is covered by a Limited Lifetime Warranty and Gibson’s 24/7/365 Customer Service.

General
What is your overall opinion of this product?
The Guitar came in with bad strings and a bowed neck. Was not playable in this condition. Had to do a pro set-up to fix action and neck problem. Also the nut on the neck needed to be filed down by my tech during the pro ste-up. After the setup this guitar plays great.
Quality
What is your opinion of the quality of this product? How does it work for different genres of music?
This is a well built guitar but was probaby returned and sold to me so that took away from Gibson quality out of the box.
Feel
Heavy, fast, chunky? How was the neck? Are the controls easy to get to while playing?
Knobs are hard to turn but the neck is the best part of this SGJ guitar. Fast action and a great guitar for my purposes of home recording and practice. Will upgrade to a standard if I start Gigging.
Tone
How is the tone? Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick or thin?
The tone is crisp, sharp, and screams at you when playing metal or hard rock.
Finish
How did the stain or paint job look?
Great nautural wood finish.
Value
Did you get what you were expecting for the price? How does it compare to similar products in the same price range?
For the price this guitar is a steal but it is no where near as smooth as a standard which I use to own. But for the price I reccomend this guitar. You may need a pro set-up for around $49.99 but it is owrth every penny.
Playability
How was the action out of the box?
Terrable, Had used strings, High action and a bowed neck. Neck nut needs filing too.
