Gibson Nailed it!!!

What is your opinion of this product?
Let me start by saying I’ve been playing Guitar for 40 years and I’ve owned many Guitars over the years. This Gibson SG Special is a Keeper for sure. It’s got a feel of the Sixties Gibson’s. The Tone of the Mimi Humbuckers are stunning. Really digging the Satin Finish too. The Upgraded gigbag was a added bonus. If your looking for a SG you won’t be disappointed with this Version in my opinion.

What sweet sound
What is your opinion of this product?
Love this guitar. Every Sg I've had has always been neck heavy causing the dive. Not on this one. Sits perfect! This is a work horse guitar for sure. The pickups are a change for me but I love the new sound. Prices are just right on this one and it's now my go to guitar!

Well Known Silhouette
What is your opinion of this product?
Gibson calls this SG "Special" and it truly is special. With its light weight, double cutaway pointed body, satin finish, small pickguard, and block inlays, it has a balanced look and feel, with no neck-dive. The mini-humbucker pickups add to that look, but their sound speaks to my blues-rock jams. At an attractive price for a U.S.A. built instrument, this one is a keeper.

A GREAT GUITAR...But check this out-
What is your opinion of this product?
I’m impressed. This is the second Gibson I’ve received in the past 2 months that was pretty close to perfect out of the box. Just a little tweak, but it rolled right in and is doing everything a Gibson should! The minis sound phenomenal, and you just gotta have a guitar with them and the price of this one is just right. But there is something else. This guitar is the last of the crazy twist ups that Juskiwitz green lighted. Curleigh is getting back to the real basics, so this will probably be the last time you see an SG with mini hummers for a long while! This model will surely become valuable in later years. This is probably going to be the last time a Gibson is sub 1k. Besides that, this is really a great guitar and just go for it if toure thinking about it. If you’ve come to the AMS website more than 3 times to look at it, then just go for it. You wont be disappointed.

Disappointed!
What is your opinion of this product?
I thought the strip down versions were suppose to play like the big boys but without the frills, binding, fancy finishes, etc. This plays like a beat up Silvertone. Wish I had not spent the thousand bucks.

Economy chic
What is your opinion of this product?
First guitar not so good. Quality control let one slip. Replacement guitar on point! Briefly, the first shipment left a bad taste in my mouth. First thing I noticed was the fret edges sticking beyond the fingerboard edges. Fine, it's an economy version with satin finish, no binding on neck,single ply pickguard, and screen printed logo and crown on headstock. Once tuned to pitch, neck was very bowed and action high. Both things were forgivable, but the final straw was the neck volume pot cut in and out. AMS was great in replacing the defective guitar quick and relatively painless. The replacement guitar was perfect. No problems what so ever! Deluxe gigbag is super plush and high quality!
