Out of all of the lower end gibsons the last few years this years model is the best for plability and sound. The factory setup was great and the guitar plays beautiful. The instore price is now less than the online price and its a great deal.
Really great guitar, the tone is beautiful and sustain is amazing. I didn't think i'd like the satin finish but I really do its a fine looking Gibson and has a fast easy to play neck. You'll love this guitar.
I ended up getting this further discounted than its already great pricepoint with some 10% trade in discount. Even w/o discount, this guitar as one of the best values ive seen. with minimal tweaking action is fantastic, finish is excellent. I really dig the 61 pickups too, a bit brighter/more cut than the probucker/burstbuckers to my ears, maybe its the 5 magnets. finish is great, I don't get why all necks aren't flat/satin as its much smoother movement. sg's are light in the body, but as long as your strap isn't glossy smooth, it with stay in place and not dive on you. the tuners look great/vintagy, and after tuning up daily the first couple weeks, they stick perfectly and hold tune. One weird nuance I may play with is that the pickup switch actually vibrates in the middle position when you hit certain frequencies, unnoticeable plugged in, but sittign on my couch playing while I watch tv unplugged you hear it. doesn't matter though as its unplugged and ill eventually pinch the metal tabs its sandwiched between tighter to kill it. This is a steal though, I would have paid 2-250 more, just play and looks great . No coil-tapping, but who coil taps on a Gibson unless you only have 1 guitar and want single coil sound.
My fiance bought this for me as a gift with her tax return. I fell in love with this guitar instantly. The feel is like no other. This guitar is light just like standard SGs maybe even a tad lighter. I also own an Epiphone Les Paul Studio Goth and a B.C. Rich bronze Warlock and they are nothing in comparison. This baby sounds great. As a beginner when I first received the guitar I knew nothing about playing, I've held and strummed a guitar before but I didn't know how to play. Having this guitar gave me the inspiration to learn, so I purchased Rock Smith for PC as added incentive to learn. After putting in about 500 hours over the past 6 months I've picked up a bit of experience and love this guitar more than ever! This is definitely a recommendation to anyone that wants to play a great guitar for a decent price.
I purchased this guitar because of the reviews and the budget and was not disappointed at all. I had an old SG from 1975 and wanted something new. This guitar was awesome right out of the box Gibson nailed it for the price. The sound is AMAZING with the 61 Humbuckers, from Jazz to Metal YOU will not go wrong and the action is great on it with the somewhat slim neck . I would only change the strings to 9s because they put 11 gauge cleartone strings on it that feel a little to heavy. I purchased the Fireburst Satin and the finish is just sooo nice! I cant put this AX down please get this guitar, best bang for the buck.
I bought this guitar to practice and for my home recording studio. The guitar came with used strings and needed a Pro Setup which I do anyway. The nut on the headstock needs filing and I may replace it. The neck is the best part of this guitar by far for the price. When it is said and done I will invest around $80.00 to get the guitar to playing condition. I used to own a SG Standard in cherry wood but sold it which was a huge mistake. This guitar plays great after the setup and if you are starting or just need a great guitar for jamming you can't go wrong. Some people get lucky and the guitar is playable out of the box. I was not so fortunate. I will eventualy get another SG Standard when I can afford it . But for now this guitar will do just fine. Sounds Great, Neck is fantatstic, very lite guitar and easy to play. But if your in a band get the Standard!!
I ordered an Epiphone Casino from my local Guitar Center and took it home and was not impressed at all, so I brought it back and looked for something else. I'm a huge Pete Townshend fan so I always look for guitars that he was known for using. I happened to come across the cherry satin version of this guitar and my lord, this guitar CRANKS! I plugged it into the Marshall half-stack that was available for demo and could not believe how amazing the pickups were clean and dirty. It has a very nice "woody" tone on the clean for both pickups and sounds beautiful with some overdrive. I mostly play Rock, Blues, and Jazz, and this guitar is perfect for nearly any genre of music. I almost forgot to mention the price is a massive steal for the quality this guitar has. If you pick this up you will not regret it.
GIBSON SGJ 2014 is amazing whether you like super vintage, heavy grunge, the sounds of the under world, the mellow blues of the "King", maybe even a little country twang, and even the sweet embrace of clean little cherub angels as they float around with little arrows of rock just waiting on the perfect time to let it fly. I know it is not top shelf liquor we are talking about here but trust me it is almost like they messed up and put the wrong label on the bottle and are losing tons of money. I have the Fireburst Satin and it looks amazing. But I also would not mind owning the Vintage Sunburst Perimeter Satin as well. Took me about 2 weeks of tweaking the action and neck adjustment (O.C.D.) but I have my action insanely low and have almost no fret buzz what so ever. The pickups are perfect the bridge is perfect high pitch without being tingy. And the neck is as warm as hot chocolate when you have let it sit so it will not burn your taste buds. And I get no static noise at all, but I do get this sweet little bit of feedback that has made me want to just live in that moment forever. As for the neck and body I could not ask for better quality, and even though some people say the frets need to be sanded I have no issues what so ever. I would say to them "quit crying and being overly critical seriously" I highly recommend 2014 SGJ to anyone!!!!!!!! The cons: It does not fold up to the same size as my little Orange Micro Crush practice-travel amp.
I had thought about maybe grabbing one of the 2013s when they went on blowout, but after trying those, frankly I didn't like the feel of the "rubbed" finish, the neck profile, the black tuning keys and pickup covers, and the ridiculously-large "Gibson" logo on the headstock. I tested one of the new 2014 cherry-finished ones out at GC a few weeks ago, and frankly was blown away by just about everything about it - the workmanship on such a "budget" US-made guitar - the fretwork (thanks, Plek! ;)), how smooth the finish was (especially on the neck), and the sound from the new "'61 zebra" humbuckers - very well-balanced, and not harsh. I ended up ordering a fireburst through MF (at a discount ;)), and was just as pleased. This is perhaps the best bang-for-buck US-made guitar out there, and I like it so much I may try the 2014 LP Melody Maker next.
This is my first Gibson and I couldn't have made a better choice for the money! The neck is smooth and easy to play and the action was perfect from the factory. The pickups are amazing in her too! In "clean" they are clear and bright and in gain, they blow away all my other guitars! True Gibson all the way on this one. If this is what a 500.00 Gibson sounds and plays like, who needs to spend triple??? A+ all the way on this one.
