The flagship of the SG range, this SG Standard 2017 comes in an exclusive Gold finish and represents a superb blend of historic looks, tone, contemporary versatility and playability. Its iconic asymmetrical double-horned body styling and smaller "teardrop" pickguard harken back to the originals of the early ’60s, and the Classic ’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 and rosewood fingerboard with rolled binding, Gibson's finest modern aluminum Tune-o-matic bridge and stop bar tailpiece with elegant chrome plating provide a stylish and modern SG playing experience. The SG Standard 2017 is delivered in a classic Gibson hardshell case with a Gibson multi-tool, a premium leather strap and a polishing cloth.

    Comments about Gibson 2017 SG Standard Gold Series Electric Guitar:

    This is my second SG - I have a 2015 SG Standard (which I removed the GForce system from and got an update ZFAN).

    I really wasn't in the market for another SG - I kind of wanted one as a backup for my 2015, but it wasn't a necessity - I have a few higher end guitars. I was on my favorite SG fan site, and someone posted a pic of this beauty. I instantly fell for the Alpine White with Gold Hardware - and knowing 2017 has a more standard sized neck width compared to the wider 2017, I really wanted to give it a go...

    I'm so glad I placed the order. This guitar is stunning to look at, and plays incredible. I love PLEK'd fret boards. While this doesn't have some of the more advanced features of the 2015 (ZFAN, coil taps, etc.) - it's still a modern SG - but is old school where it counts - the classic 57 pickups are just great in SG's. In my opinion, they are the perfect pairing and wouldn't go with anything else. Locking tuners are great, and with some nut lubricant keeps this thing in tune great - a necessity on most Gibson's.

    The only thing I might add to this already great guitar is a poker chip for the pickup selector.

    I have two SG's that look so similar in style, yet play so different. Each has their strengths. While my 2015 plays a bit faster, this one has a more attacking style to it and some growl in the lows. I play mostly older metal and hard rock (think 80's metallica, maiden, sabbath, etc.).

    Stunning Work of Art and Tone

    Comments about Gibson 2017 SG Standard Gold Series Electric Guitar:

    I bought my first SG Special in 2001 (I was 14) and fell in love. I was a pipsqueek and this guitar didn't weigh me down like the heavy Les Paul I initially wanted. Cut to 16 years later and I bought this Alpine White 2017 SG and it has blown me away in every respect. Lightweight, beautiful finish, incredible clean yet growling tone, perfect action out of the box - I'm in love like it's 2001. Thanks Gibson for bringing back the White SG standard, which I have drooled over for years. If you're wondering, I wasn't paid for writing this review. However, if you'd like to pay me, I will gladly write another!
