The SG originally was intended as a Les Paul redesign and addressed what many considered the 2 main issues players had with the Les Paul: weight and upper fretboard access. Les Paul himself didn't like it so the Les Paul stuck to its original style and the new Les Paul design was renamed the SG Standard. Even though Les Paul didn't approve of it, countless rockers loved it and made it one of all-time hard rockin' favorites.
Like all VOS (Vintage Original Spec) Series instruments, the SG Standard VOS is handcrafted for comfort and playability in the Gibson Custom Shop. The construction, neck profile, hardware, and electronics are period accurate, and a special nitrocellulose finish treatment gives it the patina of a gently aged vintage guitar. Includes Gibson Custom Shop case, and a certificate of authenticity.

I bought a regular SG Standard last year. After buying I played a SG VOS. It's a world of difference! The neck, the sound, the whole feel of it. I also played the regular 61 reissue with the flat tapered neck like the VOS, but it still can't comopare to the VOS. If you can afford it, buy it. If you're a fan of the SG, this is the one!
