In my experience, Gibson has a problem with string alignment. I ordered a 2018 SG and had to send it back because the high E kept slipping off the rail when I played in the low positions. The dealer sent another one, which I kept, but there was still the alignment issue, but not as bad. I solved it by using a heavier gauge string. At these prices I should be able to play nines or tens, but I can’t. It ain’t my left hand, because I never had this problem with Fender and my Les Paul doesn’t do this. I think what’s happening is — because their necks are set, there is a certain amount of variation in alignment from one axe to another. For economic reasons, they have to pass some guitars that they shouldn’t. The upshot is DO NOT buy a Gibson that you have not played.
