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 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.

        Gibson makes a great product, I love this 2017 model and the changes. My 2016 does not feel as good now. The thinner neck is very comfortable.

        Comments about Gibson 2017 SG Standard T Electric Guitar:

        Guitar played great right out of the case...About all I had to do was just re-set intonation, It was off a bit.
        But everything else was spot on !

        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:

          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.

          Pros

          • Amp jack and switch where it should be.
          • Beautiful wood grain on the Heritage.
          • Excellent customer support.
          • Great sound from the '57 pickups.

              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.

                  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.

                  Beats Custom Shop

                  from Johnsburg, New York

                  Comments about Gibson 2017 SG Standard T Electric Guitar:

                  I am more of a beginner, only playing for about half a year (rock,metal,blues) and I have been lucky enough to put my hands on 5 custom shop guitars, and after cleaning this guitar up, lowering the action, and changing strings, I am 100% sure this beats a 59 reissue any day. The locking tuners are a breeze, the burst finish is amazing and the guitar re inspires me every time I pick it up. I also own a 1999 Jackson Rhoads V that is in this same category. Gibson and Jackson will always make the best electrics ever.
