Product Description

The Gibson SG Original Electric Guitar has the classic tone, looks and quality of vintage 60s SGs but without the incredibly high price tag! Two Gibson 57 Classic humbuckers produce the vocal like, raw sound of the original PAF pickups. Some of the most sought after vintage SGs feature a vibrato tailpiece and that’s exactly what the SG Original provides! The Lyre tailpiece is a unique system that has a distinct feel and sound when used.

Much Better Than Expected
General
What is your overall opinion of this product?
Great guitar, caught me off guard. Bought it as I've always wanted on and whne it went on sale, I couldn't refuse.
Quality
What is your opinion of the quality of this product? How does it work for different genres of music?
Very well made. First guitar I've purchased online vs usually having to touch and feel before I buy. Excellent quality.
Feel
Heavy, fast, chunky? How was the neck? Are the controls easy to get to while playing?
Neck is 60's style and feels great. It has a Les Paul feel but without the weight. You have to get use to the pickup placement, otherwise nothing to complain about.
Tone
How is the tone? Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick or thin?
The tone was nice but I felt the neck pickup was a little dark for my taste. I've replaced them with EJ pickups and they sound just where I want them. I didn't care for the stock bridge and replaced it with a Faber setup and now sounds solid.
Finish
How did the stain or paint job look?
No problems with paint or stain. Looked perfect when I received it.
Value
Did you get what you were expecting for the price? How does it compare to similar products in the same price range?
Great value. It normally lists for $1900 but AMS/Gibson had a blowout sale for $1200 and I just couldn't pass it up.
Playability
How was the action out of the box?
It is my first Gibson that played perfect right out of the case compared to my Les Paul's that I've had to perform setups on them. Big improvement on Gibson factory setups.
