General What is your overall opinion of this product? This SG has awesome tone. Everything I expected. Only thing I don't like is the hideous Min-E Tune. Didn't really know what to expect with it. I will remove it and install locking tuners. Quality What is your opinion of the quality of this product? How does it work for different genres of music? Quality is good and worth the money. Feel Heavy, fast, chunky? How was the neck? Are the controls easy to get to while playing? Easier to play than my LP. At least for me, anyway. Controls are ok. Tone How is the tone? Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick or thin? Exactly what is expected with SG. Finish How did the stain or paint job look? Great Value Did you get what you were expecting for the price? How does it compare to similar products in the same price range? Yes Playability How was the action out of the box? Very good, but could be better.

General What is your overall opinion of this product? The SG Traditional more than lives up to it's heritage! I love it! Quality What is your opinion of the quality of this product? How does it work for different genres of music? Typical Gibson quality,top shelf material,flawless finish,beautiful colors. Feel Heavy, fast, chunky? How was the neck? Are the controls easy to get to while playing? Feels great,fast and sleek! Tone How is the tone? Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick or thin? The new "Tap Tone" adds quite a bit of flexibility,from smooth,mellow,to hard crunch! Finish How did the stain or paint job look? Excellent Value Did you get what you were expecting for the price?

General What is your overall opinion of this product? I bought this after buying the SGJ. Love the bound neck and kudos to Gibson for getting rid the of nubs and doing fret over bindings. The finish is just gorgeous! The pots actual do something when turning them, not just on or off like so many cheap Asian guitars. Quality What is your opinion of the quality of this product? How does it work for different genres of music? This is a quality instrument. Although, I would have prefered to have the option of not having the e-tune - not that it's bad, or doesn't work, I just prefer Grover tuners and have a very accurate strobe tuner. For stage I can see it being very useful. Feel Heavy, fast, chunky? How was the neck? Are the controls easy to get to while playing? The Standard seem lighter than the SGJ. Get a leather strap so the neck dive is minimal. Tone How is the tone? Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick or thin? The tone is awesome!. SG = the tone of rock. From The Doors, to the Who, to AC/DC and Black Sabbath. With the right amp, clean bell like jazz tones are very doable as well as country pickin' Finish How did the stain or paint job look? I love the smell of nito finishes in the morning. The finish is beautiful. Smooth, mirror like, mine has almost a "burst" finish, the body carve is darker with almost no grain showing through. The Midnight blue is brighter than the pics when in the light. Value Did you get what you were expecting for the price? How does it compare to similar products in the same price range? I think Gibson's pricing is a bit steep for an SG Standard. at 1600+ it's a bit into the bottom of the boutique market. The SG Standard is a utility guitar it should be priced around 1k. Playability How was the action out of the box? Action was the best I have seen out of the box. With that being said, each player's style is different. A full setup around my playing style is going to happen, and I will put 10s on it (I think it comes with Cleartone 9s... too light).
What a Great Christmas Gift.Could'nt have been more Happy or Surprised.
