GIBSON ENTERS THE RING WITH A KNOCKOUT
By: mark proteus from buffalo,n.y.,U.S.A.
Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable?
as with any higher end manufacturer,the quality standards are set high.i have 4 sg's,and am loving this model due to the color choices,the fingerboard,and the dirty fingers dual humbucker p/up configuration.for this price point it is an unusually well made model,and carries forth the same characteristics of my higher priced models.
Your general opinion of this product.
it stands tall as should any classic.i like the sg line particularly due to its lightweight ,and balance ,due to my having a bad back.the tonal range is vast ,and and presents well in any situation.clear ,crisp cleans.low end crunch,and searing soloing screaming highs.
Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin?
i'll just say yes to all of the above.gibsons are well known for their vast array of tones,but when colorized with your pedal set up you can reach the stars and moon.....
How did the stain or paint job look?
absolutely spotless.with a gleaming sheen.not the trans paint we are used to in the maroons,and blacks,which is why i bought both the blue and the red.the blue has a purplish glow to it under the stage lighting,which is very impressive.
