Sound quality: My Gibson SG Standard has the 57's in it so naturally it's got a great bit of classic beef. Very well defined/dynamic through a valve amp and a great cutting tone.
Good and Bad Points: Due to it's very cleanly set-neck and sharp cutaways, access to the higher frets is very easy indeed. As I said the tone is pure classic rock, but it can also be toned down for cleaner jazz tones too. The neck feels very quick and (being a Strat player) is a bit easier for chording at the bottom… Read Full Review

A great guitar, 10x better then my strat. Brilliant sound from both pickups clean or dirty. I had to wait two years to get this guitar. I loved SG's from the moment i saw one being played by Pete Townshend and i love this one even more. An amazing guitar well worth the wait… Read Full Review

Sits nicely, with great access to 12-15th frets if you like to play around there, however as I mentioned in the "bad points section", I personally find it difficult to play some cords up there. On the other hand, I find big stretch cords at the 2-6th positions easier to play on this guitar, compared to my tele or my strat.
Because there is no spring, you wont get a bouncy surf sound like a strat can make. Doesn't sound a sweet playing open cords as a telecaster.
However, I am after a smoother… Read Full Review

I've been playing strat style guitars for 25 years, I went and bought this Gibson SG Standard on a whim as I was getting bored with the guitars I have (A '62 reissue Squire Strat and and Ibanez RG550), I walked in and said show me a Gibson for under £1,000, there were 2, both SG's a Special and a Standard. Blown away is is an understatement, I have quite small hands and this thing plays itself, it feels faster than the wafer thin Ibanaez neck even though it's quite thick, my accuaracy improved… Read Full Review

Hi! I'm Vinny The Guitarman, I've been playing and performing for over 30 years and love to share my thoughts and experiences of the Gibson SG Standard. The SG is a powerful little guitar. Moderately priced for a Gibson and light in weight for those long gigs ...this guitar is a true winner. I find that it has a bright sharp sound and that is easy to control on stage. In the studio the guitar records better than the Les Paul ...which sound I do like better but is a killer to get right when… Read Full Review

Gibson SG Standard - Bought the guitar for £849.
Action - really nice low action - set up perfectly - no buzzing, or fretting out.
Sound - I'm a big SG Fan - and this guitar lives up to everything you would expect. A bit thinner sounding than a Les Paul as you would expect, but the added brightness is something I like. Top quality pick ups allow you to achieve a pro sound and will either highlight or show up your amp for what it really is capable of.
Case - awesome, grey, plush-lined guitar… Read Full Review
