The Gibson SG Standard 2017 T represents a superb blend of historic looks and tone and contemporary versatility and playability.

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 Gibson SG Standard 2017 T features iconic a symmetrical double-horned body styling and smaller 'teardrop' pickguard that harken 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 our finest modern aluminum Tune-O-Matic bridge and stop bar tailpiece with elegant chrome plating provide a sylish and modern SG playing experience.

The SG Standard 2017 T includes a classic Gibson hardshell case with a Gibson multi-tool, a premium leather strap, and a polishing cloth.

Best Uses

    I originally went to Sam Ash for a Gibson Les Paul. I have owned about 6-7 Gibson Les Paul's in my life and decided I wanted a new one. I originally bought the Classic in seafoam green. After I got it home I noticed the fit and finish actually sucked. I went back and looked at more Classics, Traditional and Standards. But what I noticed was the finish sucked on all of them. The flame tops were cheesy and bumpy. The binding was all over the place. I was about to say screw Gibson when I decided to look at the SG'S. I picked up the 2017 Standard in burst finish and I will be darned if I couldn't find a single blemish of flaw of any kind. Plugged it in and WOW! It felt great! How come all the SG'S I looked at were finished by the gods and all the Les Paul's were finished by drunken elves?? Same company but boy do they take pride in the SG. I have never been happier with a new guitar.

    Amazing improvement from last year's model

    By 

    from Edison, NJ

    Staff Reviewer

    This years Gibson SG models have far surpassed the quality of last years model. The biggest improvement was that they are now using the 57 Classics pickups instead of the 490 and 498 model pickups. This lets you really get the most out of the guitar and with the weight being so light you can run around on stage with great ease.

    Beautiful guitar in playability and design

    By 

    from New Brunswick, NJ

    The SG is a classic guitar and has been used by countless musicians for decades. The neck is nice and slim and the access to the higher frets is a big part of what makes these guitars special. It's also equipped with 57' Classic humbuckers that have a fantastic vintage tone. This is a must have for lead guitarists, and is perfect for everything from country to metal.

        A fantastic price for one of the most iconic Rock-n-Roll guitars in history! Beautiful finish and attention to detail will provide you with a lifetime of great rocking with this beast. Handmade in Nashville Tn, this is a great American made guitar without the astronomical price tag to go along. Grab one while you can. You won't regret it!
