      The sg was cracked on both sides were the neck was installed. I sent back and ordered a ESP instead of trying another SG.

      Great changes, best SG I've ever played!

      Comments about Gibson 2015 SG Standard Electric Guitar:

      - It is by far, the best playing SG I've ever played. One reason why is the wider fretboard. I like bigger necks (I love the Traditional LP model) and while the neck profile on the SG is certainly still a slim taper, being wider gives my hand the extra grip I need for my big gorilla hands. - I, astonishingly enough, don't miss the nibs. This coming from a guy who at one point used to be a Gibson traditionalist in that department. The extra bit of space you now get with the wider fretboard and the fret over binding, seemingly does make for a lot more room for bends and chording. - G-Force is an improvement over the Min-etune system. This was a take it or leave it feature for me before now, but I actually like the convenience of having a tuned guitar in under 5 seconds. The Min-etune system guitars I had tried previously didn't seem to work as accurately, and therefore I was wary at first of having the systems forced onto all the 2015 models. G-Force works well though. - The case is much nicer. The gold case seems much sturdier than my 2013 black tolex. I digged the look of the 2014 brown cases with the pinkish lining, but the gold case is a nice tight molded fit that feels like it could take a beating if needed. - Fit and finish is as good as ever. Some of the 2013 SG Standards were hit or miss. I've played half a dozen of them when considering a purchase recently. SGs are more varying in fit and finish than other models, as colors and grain patterns are all over the the board and even the fretboard binding color varied (from almost pink to stark white). I've played two 2015 SG Standards and the first was a super nice guitar, but felt that the finish was a little dark (no grain visible, hardly). The other one I tried had a lighter shade of heritage cherry and a nice grain pattern to it. Both felt the same in quality though, again unlike the 2013s I had tried. I totally discounted the 2014 models for the ugly, unforgivable 12th fret inlay. Which leads me to... - The commemorative stuff is at least more tasteful than the 2014's. Again, as a traditionalist I'm no fan of decals, special inlays, or insignia. I want a timeless looking guitar. However, on the 2015 model I was much less bothered by the Les Paul signature on the headstock and the hologram decal than the aforementioned 12th fret inlay. - The brass nut is a very underrated new feature. The new nut is quite possibly a genius invention. I might be overstating that a bit, but the resonance you get from it is noticeable. Not to mention, it's adjustable! That's just really cool, as I know that if I wanted to do some blues and slap some 11 or 12 gauge strings on the guitar and play with a slide, it would be able to handle it like a champ without any concern from the nut grooves. In the end, I love this guitar and can't put it down. It plays better than other SGs I've tried, if not simply for the fact of the wider fretboard. That's a personal preference but it made that big of a difference in deciding to make a purchase now for a 2015 rather than buy used or wait for the 2014 closeout.
