Raising the Standards

When the double-cutaway SG was unveiled as the (temporary) replacement for the original single-cutaway Les Paul in 1961 it quickly proved itself far more than just a stand-in. An overnight success, this innovative guitar quickly became a favorite with rock, blues, and jazz players and more. The flagship of the SG range, the SG Standard 2017 T represents a superb blend of historic looks and tone and contemporary versatility and playability. Its iconic asymmetrical double-horned body styling and smaller 'teardrop' pickguard hark back to the originals of the early 60s, and the Classic 57 and 57 + humbuckers likewise take you straight back to those hallowed PAF tones. When uncompromising performance matters, locking Grover kidney-button tuners, a slim taper neck, rosewood fingerboard with rolled binding, and Gibson's finest modern aluminum Tune-O-Matic bridge and stop bar tailpiece with elegant chrome plating provide a sylish and modern SG playing experience.

Before picking this guy up I'd been playing on a Ibanez grg170dx for 6 years, so this was quite the upgrade. I picked up one of these used at L&M Mississauga for $899 which was an absolute steal. I've been playing it for just over a month now and I don't regret my descision to buy in the slightest. The pickups sound so thick and this guitar can do a great job of replicating Santana, AC/DC tones... etc. And palm muting/chugging with distortion is so powerful on this guitar. The one bad thing i did notice was that after just a few weeks of playing the neck has started to show small scratches and markings, which is a bit annoying. I'm going to invest in some guitar care supplies to try and avoid it from getting worse. Overall, I'd give this guitar a 4.5/5

I received this guitar from my wife as a Christmas present and I have to say it is the most amazing sounding fast playing guitar I've ever played in my life, the 57 classic pickups have such an amazing sound and old school rock, that roll binding on the neck is so slick so enjoyable to play can't say enough good things about this guitar the grover locking tuners stays in tune really well.

I love this guitar. The playability and sound that comes from the 57s in it is excellent. I have a Les Paul with 57s and these sound more clear to me, yet still warm. Must be that maple cap. Do not hesitate on this piece. I got mine on sale for $1299 which is an amazing price for the value you get. Locking tuners, 57 classics, beautiful rolled white binding, excellent finish and craftmanship. Gibson gets an A+ with this one. The only thing I had to do is a setup, which all new guitars need, from factory the strings were too high and the neck relief was off. Go get one before they are all gone!
