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 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.

        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.

                  Comments about Gibson 2017 SG Standard T Electric Guitar:

                  Man this new 2017 Gibson SG is hot! I had a 2016 SG standard T but ended up selling it because it simply lacked that extra bit of magic that great guitars have. The 2017 models just seem to have it for me. The hard shell case is awesome and I honestly might like it as much as the guitar. It's stunning. As for the guitar - the 57 classic pickups are a huge upgrade over the 490/498s from last year. More vintage, brighter, more biting tone. I like both pick guard styles, so that's not really a big make or break factor for me. But yeah, great guitar. I mainly use this around the house to practice because it's so nice and then take a lower end Les Paul or Epi ES-335 to gigs, but you could definitely gig with 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.
