Best SG I've ever played.
I fell in love with this SG from the first note and had to own it. It has a big chunky neck and the body really resonates when its set-up with a rod straight neck and the action on the high side. The stock 490r neck pickup is warm and sparkly, however I was underwhelmed by the 498t at the bridge. It didn't jive with my favored amplifier, the Vox AC30. At a guitar show I swapped a pedal for an ld Gibson T-top Humbucker with pretty low DCR and installed it at the bridge. It completed the package making my SG into my favorite rock axe.
I have named this guitar El Superbeasto, but she will answer Beasto for short.
Great guitar with a fast neck, good clean and really rocks through a tube amp.
My first electric guitar recommended to me by my first guitar teacher. At the time I wasn't convinced and was considering a strat but this one really came through. Fast neck, great tone, sounds great clean and really rocks through a tube amps. Tuning stability not as good as my PRS, strat or Duesenberg even without a whammy bar on the SG. Ages beautifully.

My Number 1!
It's by no means the perfect guitar, but it is my #1, the first choice in the bands that I write music for. Plays beautifully and was a natural fit for me the first time I picked it up. Not as warm as most LP's I've played, a little more on the aggressive side, just the way I like it. Mine is a 2012 limited edition in Honeyburst. Originally equipped with Burstbuckers, the bridge pickup has been replaced with a Wolfetone Marshallhead. Currently strung up with Dean Markley 13's, tuned to D standard, pots and caps replaced with CTS and Orange Drops respectively, and rewired to a 50's wiring scheme.
Gibson SG Standard
2013 was the year Gibson finally got it right? Overall it's a really nice guitar to play and sounds good especially with the 57 classic PUPS however the balance of the guitar is not the best.
Compared to the 92 SG Standard I had this guitar doesn't come close to being as good. Action is great, the neck is fast and it's a really fun guitar to play. It's a light guitar which makes it comfortable however I find myself constantly adjusting how it sits while playing, minor detail but annoying. Everything else about the guitar I like.
I bought my first guitar around 1997, and it was Heritage Cherry Gibson SG. Very well balanced tone, small fingerboard and the only thing that wears fast is the finishing/bodypaint colours. I've changed the tuning machines to a grover type because i smashed it on stage by accident and surprisingly it still worked well and only left some small scratch.
classic guitar tone
I've owned my sg standard for a little over ten years now and this guitar has never disappointed me in any way what so ever. It great for styles from classic rock, doom metal, to ambient, and jazz. I've kept mine completely stock simply because it just does everything its supposed to. theres too many positive things to say about this guitar so if you interested in one of these, i highly suggest going to a local music store that has one in stock and play it. See how it feels for you.
Not the most versatile guitar around, but unrivaled at it's own game!
SG was my second guitar ever and has been my number one choice ever since. It's gorgeous looks, light weight and easy playability always make it my first choice for shows and studio leads. SG may not be my ideal choice for clean sounds or solid state amps, but a right amount of distortion and a good tube amp make it unbeatable! The SG is especially great for shredding, Rock, Metal and Blues.
