    Comments about Gibson SG Standard Electric Guitar with Hardshell Case:

    If you crave the PAF tones, but aren't looking for the LP body shape, you really can't go wrong with the SG Standard. Like all Gibsons, it's made in USA, and the finish is immaculate. The attention to detail is stronger than ever, and the tones are standard setting. It's light and the playability is superb. Upon holding it, you'll imediately feel like a better guitar player.

      Comments about Gibson SG Standard Electric Guitar with Hardshell Case:

      I've always been a huge fan of the Gibson SG. Amazing tone and feel. Very light weight but has a huge sound. I have one SG in my collection and I probably will get a new 2016 to add to it.

          Comments about Gibson SG Standard Electric Guitar with Hardshell Case:

          The SG is a legendary guitar for comfort and playability. The tone sounds great and is perfect for everything from country to metal. The design is lightweight and not too heavy, and the neck is easy to slide around on. This is an all around beautiful guitar and the pickups sound amazing especially with some overdrive. Note bends and slides come out crystal clear and are easy to pull off compared to some other similarly priced guitars.

          Comments about Gibson SG Standard Electric Guitar with Hardshell Case:

          Heres another great piece from Gibson. When I first saw this hanging I thought to myself I really have to take that home. The neck is fat but not overwhelming and the neck joint is much more sturdy than the 61ri style. The pickups give you plenty of output for rock while retaining a vintage quality. The full face pickgaurd really brings the whole look together.

            Comments about Gibson SG Standard Electric Guitar with Hardshell Case:

            This guitar screams rock and roll. Pair this SG with a Marshall with everything set at 10. The pickups give that classic crunch tone associated with so many legendary rock bands. The slimmer neck profile is a nice addition and makes a faster playing neck. The oil rubbed finish is low maintenance and has a great feel. This guitar is a great value for an American made instrument.

              Comments about Gibson SG Standard Electric Guitar with Hardshell Case:

              Features common to Gibson USA's 2016 Traditional range include our original neck width of 1 11/16th at the nut, historic neck heel shape, standard high-quality manual tuners.
              A traditional Graph Tech nut, and a thicker one-piece rosewood fingerboard with a hand-rubbed oil finish for a plush look and feel.
              Put it together, and it's superb value in an American-made Gibson guitar that takes you straight to that classic '60s vibe.
              When the original Les Paul evolved into the Les Paul/SG Standard in 1961, the evolution embodied Les Paul's vision for a sleek, powerful, contemporary solidbody electric guitar. The distinctive new double-cutaway guitar—now simply known as the SG—was an overnight success, and became a major rock and blues icon by the late '60s. This guitar is amazing and it is at an amazing price, get one today!

                Comments about Gibson SG Standard Electric Guitar with Hardshell Case:

                Very stoked to see a return to the classic, full face pick guard this year. Was not a fan of making the Standards with the '61 style half-face pick guard. I've owned 4 SG's in my time playing, from the faded specials to the Standard and in between. This is the first time I've fallen in love with the neck. Usually to chunky for my preference, this year is the right mix of flat and wide. I'm used to the neck of my Gibson Explorer. This SG is just a little chunkier, but comparable

                Was not interested in SG's or the past couple years, but I will be picking this model up
