Here is the 2017 Gibson SG T my new favorite guitar. I looked on the Gibson website as I thought his guitar was plek’d  but I did not see it there so here is a bit more information on this guitar design from sweetwater. I think this SG rivals competing brands custom shop models for thousands less.

The Gibson SG Standard T solidbody electric guitar is a favorite with rock, blues, and jazz players everywhere. Its double-cutaway mahogany body delivers all the resonance you'd expect from a classic instrument. A set of '57 Classic humbuckers yields vintage PAF-style tones by the truckload. Wrapping your hand around this guitar's mahogany SlimTaper neck is a joy, and its new thicker rosewood fingerboard exhibits a richer tone and makes bending incredibly smooth. Locking Grover kidney-button tuners are durable and precise. A self-lubricating TekToid nut enhances your sustain and provides an accurate return to pitch. A small teardrop pickguard adds a touch of vintage vibe to the Gibson SG Standard T solidbody electric guitar.

 

 

Gibson SG Standard T Solidbody Electric Guitar at a Glance:

  • Plek'd for precision playability
  • The Gibson SG - a brief history
  • SlimTaper neck feels great and provides exceptional playability
  • Powerful, punchy pickups plus killer appointments

Plek'd for precision playability

This SG Standard 2017 T feels fast and precise, thanks in large part to Plek processing. Typically reserved for top-dollar custom guitars, this process levels the frets with pinpoint precision, providing you with the most playable fretboard you're likely to own. Each note rings loud and clear, and the fret edges feel smooth as silk.

The Gibson SG - a brief history

In the early 1960s, Gibson sought to bolster its reputation as a quality builder of electric solidbody guitars in the midst of slow sales of their now-iconic Les Paul. Originally intended as a new model of the Les Paul, this new design failed to obtain the endorsement of Les Paul himself, and as such was renamed the SG (Solid Guitar). The newly minted Gibson SG was thinner than the Les Paul, with two cutaways, pointed horns, beveled edges, and no body binding. Originally advertised as having the "fastest neck in the world," the Gibson SG is presently one of the most copied solidbody electric guitar models in the world.

SlimTaper neck feels great and provides exceptional playability

The Gibson SG Standard T sports a comfortable, fast-action neck with a SlimTaper profile. Early Gibson guitars had huge, often ungainly necks. By 1960, Gibson had gradually carved down this profile into what became their SlimTaper neck. As your fingers move down this neck, the precisely controlled width-to-thickness ratio of the SG Standard T's SlimTaper neck provides you with a consistent, fast, and comfortable feel. It's no wonder many lifelong guitar players consider the SlimTaper Gibson's finest neck.

Powerful, punchy pickups plus killer appointments

Two of Gibson's best-loved humbuckers amongst Sweetwater guitarists - a '57 Classic in the neck position, and a '57 Classic Plus in the bridge - give the Gibson SG Standard T the power, punch, and clarity of Gibson's legendary PAF pickups. Other traditional appointments include a small teardrop pickguard, locking Grover kidney-button tuners, and a chromed aluminum Tune-o-matic bridge and stopbar.

Gibson SG Standard T Solidbody Electric Guitar Features:

  • Solid mahogany body delivers copious sustain
  • Fast and comfortable SlimTaper neck profile
  • Thicker rosewood fingerboard for improved sonic depth and playability
  • '57 Classic humbuckers deliver classic PAF-style tones
  • Self-lubricating TekToid nut yields great sustain and accurate return to pitch
  • Small teardrop pickguard is a hallmark of early '60s SG Standards
  • Durable and precise locking Grover kidney-button tuners
  • Plek'd for precision playability

The Gibson SG Standard T solidbody electric guitar delivers the goods.

Where is? You say, here is the 2017 Gibson SG T, and then you follow that with a bunch of words. That's not it. That's just a sales pitch you have pasted in there.[blink]

I would much rather here YOUR take on it. Not what Gibson wants me to think about it.
