Comments about Gibson 2017 SG Faded HP Electric Guitar:

This is an excellent instrument - everything that Gibson promised, in a very attractive package, and at a good price. I intend to use this guitar for my primary go-to instrument. I'm not sure why Gibson is offering so many attractive features at such a reasonable cost, but if you're considering a new ax, I'd highly recommend this. It's a steal!

Comments about Gibson 2017 SG Faded HP Electric Guitar:

Ordered this for my Sabbath tribute band. Plays great! And the titanium zero fret nut and titanium saddles give this thing a monstrous sound and incredible sustain! The only downside is the neck dive....wow. Unbelievable....and I'm sure its attributed to the GFORCE tuner, placement of the strap buttons and the really REALLY cheap strap that came with it. New strap will be ordered to see if it lessens the neck dive. If that works then the guitar gets a solid 5/5
