Overview

The SG Fusion was designed around the Gibson standards of quality and innovation for Gibson USA's new S Series, bringing unprecedented value in an American-made guitar. It is made in USA, with American craftsmanship that is second to none, giving superior quality, tone and playability, and featuring a solid mahogany body in the style of the original legendary SG of the ’60s. It features a nitrocellulose finish, with Gibson's new nitro light gloss for the body and a nitro satin finish for the neck. It has a set neck, which is made of one piece of solid maple, with a slim-taper profile, topped with a genuine one-piece rosewood fingerboard. The body is crafted from solid mahogany for classic Gibson tones, and the guitar is loaded with completely new, modern, made-in-USA, Double Slugs Rhythm DS-C and Lead DS-C+ humbuckers for the absolute best value out there and amazing quality, tone and playability.

Comments about Gibson 2017 SG Fusion Electric Guitar:

I ordered the Cherry, And was very pleased when it came in. Set-up was great straight out of the box. Great sounding and easy playing. Paint job was good not great but good. Came WITH A NICE GIBSON gig bag. All and all I think I made a wise choice! I think for the money Gibson did a great job, allowing the people like me a chance to own a new Gibson for a great price! I would recommend this guitar to a friend.

      Comments about Gibson 2017 SG Fusion Electric Guitar:

      I was really surprised the Quality of this made in USA Gibson, Finish is not perfect like you would except from a $1,500.00 Gibson! But let face it I didn't pay that for it either. I have never liked the faded finish, and this is much better than the faded finish! Set-up was great right out of the box, Stays in tune great. But to be honest I'm not into the string bend style of playing. Nice Gibson Gig Bad. I got the red finish. AND all and all I could not be happier with this guitar!! If you are like me and love the Gibson guitar but at time have to watch my budget BUY this Guitar

      About Me Professional Musician

      Comments about Gibson 2017 SG Fusion Electric Guitar:

      How a company that has been designing guitars for more than a century could screw up this badly is mind boggling. The 2 main issues both have to do with the bridge. First, it sits up so tightly against the rear pickup that you have to loosen all the strings and remove the bridge to replace even a single string. For a gigging guitarist, this alone is a deal breaker. Secondly, the bridge sits at a weird angle and will not adjust low enough to get decent action on the fretboard. I received this guitar tonight; it's going back to the dealer in the morning. VERY disappointing.

      Comments about Gibson 2017 SG Fusion Electric Guitar:

      Bad neck design . You can pull on neck for sound variation like tremolo. Same neck design , same tuners , same bridge as Gibson MT. The neck is glued to body there is no secure screw securement . The action is good on guitar. However , one would be better off investing a little more for a upgrade to a Les Paul . The cost to modify instrument to decent specs would not be too costly.
