Overview

When the double-cutaway SG was unveiled as the (temporary) replacement for the original single-cutaway Les Paul in 1961 it quickly proved itself far more than just a stand-in. An overnight success, this innovative guitar quickly became a favorite with rock, blues and jazz players and more. The flagship of the SG range, the SG Standard 2017 T 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 T 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 T Electric Guitar:

I have to say, Great Guitar for the money. I have own Les Pauls before but this SG right out of the box is just Awesome, it was tune down a step, that's normal but great feel and the pick ups are just awesome like the PAF pick ups. I have a serious back injury with rods and pelvis also screwed together but the weight on this is so light to the Les Pauls not knocking them. if you want a guitar that's screams from rock to country or jazz and light weight to play for hours with out hurting. This is it.

    Comments about Gibson 2017 SG Standard T Electric Guitar:

    Gibson raised the price for 2017 on the SG Standard by a hundred dollars but what you get in return is worth so much more. I have a 2016 SG Standard and I love it. I like the fit and finish but when I first put a 2017 in my hands, it was everything the 2016 and more!

    You get all the standard perks of a SG Standard. To make it even better, the finish is nicer and it has the 57s versus the 490s in it, a huge upgrade. The binding seems nicer on the 2017 as well. I prefer the pickguard on the 2017, giving it less feedback due to the hollow space under the batwing of the 2016. The locking tuners really throw this over the top, they are such a vast improvement! Top it all off with a case and that is the best extra hundred dollars you can spend. The burst finish is pretty awesome too.

    Glad I stepped up!

    Comments about Gibson 2017 SG Standard T Electric Guitar:

    I went into the Jacksonville Store to check out a 2013 used SG. It only had one ding and they needed 799- When it didn't play like I needed, the salesman suggested I check out the 2017! Glad I did. The guitar is ALL THAT. Gibson is not tired and not old bros! They can still turn out a superior product. The new SG 2017 is fast, light, solid, and grunts some fat sustain. Comes with a very cool retro style case lined in red.

      Comments about Gibson 2017 SG Standard T Electric Guitar:

      I had the 2016 Standsrd T and I like this much better. Turns out I prefer the smaller pickguard and angled pickuo rings. The tuners are more precise and stable. Also the neck seems stronger, meaning I don't accidentally affect the tone by flexing the neck. Also on this one the neck pocket angle is there but not as steep, so the bridge and tailpiece don't sit as high.
      To me overall this is a great improvement over the 2016.

      New Standard sets a new Standard

      By Tbonzai

      from Tomball, TX

      Comments about Gibson 2017 SG Standard T Electric Guitar:

      I have been playing for more than 30 years and have owned a ton of Gibson's. I played an 09 SG 61 reissue and loved the neck and neck access on the reissue. Both have the 57 classic pickups and the 17 has the slim taper neck. As does the 61 reissue. At the end of the day I went with the new SG Standard in burst color. What did it for me was the finish on the Standard. The top coat was like looking at a fresh frozen pond. It was so silky smooth and just NICE! The reissue was in great shape but the finish just wasn't even close to the new Standard. No regrets, but I wish I could have bought both.

          Comments about Gibson 2017 SG Standard T Electric Guitar:

          This was a Christmas gift from my wife, but they were on back order. I still received mine 6 days earlier than expected. It was well packed, double-boxed, with the guitar in it's case, delivered by UPS. The 2017 SG is greatly improved from other models I am familiar with. I love the '57 pickups and the placement of the control knobs, switch, and amp jack, from earlier years. Except for a minor adjustment on the bridge pickup, it was perfectly set up, as received. Great job by the Gibson line technicians. Customer support before and after the sale has been great, with no surprises, except receiving my new guitar early. I strongly recommend this guitar to any serious player.

              Comments about Gibson 2017 SG Standard T Electric Guitar:

              My new guitar was perfectly setup as received, except for a minor bridge pickup adjustment. The wood grain finish is much prettier than the pictures on the web (Heritage model). One of my sons brought me a 1984 SG to setup for him and I was hooked, had to have one. My wife bought me this one for Christmas, but they were on back order. I still received mine 6 days earlier than expected. This SG is VERY light and smooth as silk. I love the '57 pickups and various sound setups available. Sorry Gretsch and Fender, this is my new pick.

              Comments about Gibson 2017 SG Standard T Electric Guitar:

              This is everything you don't want on most of today's Gibsons. This guitar plays and sounds great. You could play just about any style of music on her. Gibson keeps pushing their tuning system and coil-splitting. NOT HERE BABY! Locking Grovers on this model. You will need to get a set-up, and than you have a better guitar than the HP model and for hundreds less. Just a great guitar overall!

                    I have played a Strat since 1991 I was a strat guy for years. A couple years ago I kept trying to get some tones, BB King, Freddie King, Joe Bonamassa, Warren Haynes, Billy Gibbons, Jimmy Page. All play Gibsons. They are expensive, I wanted an ES 335 but, it is too much. I save for the SG and got it on sale.
                    I brought it home last night and couldn't put it down. It is so different, in a great way from the Strat. There was the tone I have been wanting. It is the 57 humbuckers!!! If you are on the fence about buying this guitar, do it!!
                    You will not be sorry.
