Accurate reproduction of 60s Guitar
Mando 45, 08.04.2020
I have wanted an Gibson SG since its introduction in the 60s and now am able to add it to my collection of top end guitars.
The guitar is well made with quality materials, relatively light weight and comfortable to play.
The set up of the guitar left something to be desired which required me to re-set the truss rod to get the right dip.
The nut was poorly finished and needed rework and it really need replacing.
The string hight was so low on the trebble side that the strings were buzzing all the way up the fingerboard.
The intonation was way out and I had to reverse all of the saddles to get it to plat in tune.
The finish on the frets and fingerboard is good and of the quality you would expect on a guitar of this cost.and the tuners are of a good quality also.
The body finish is good with the quality of the mahogany showing through and the joint impossible to see.
The guitar case provided is of excellent quality and protects the guitar well.
The sound quality is OK and the pick ups reasonable but not as good as my PRS SE Custom which is a better guitar.

Best SG version so far - Worth every penny!
Tetro Leon Guitar, 21.10.2019
Own this guitar for some time now and honestly, I couldn't be any happier!

Very comfortable guitar, the body sits perfectly on your lap and the neck feels amazing!

Very easy to play and as for the tone, there's nothing similar to it! I don't think you will ever be able to find any negative points for this guitar.

Aesthetically, there's nothing better than Gibson's vintage original tuning pegs and the small pick guard - in combination with these horns.

If you own any other double humbucker guitars, it surely can not compare to them - If you do not own any humbucker guitar, you definitely need this one!

Comes with the hard case that every time you open it, the smell reminds you how amazing your guitar is!

Undoubtedly worth the extra money comparing to the standard SG model!

Klassiker!
PhilFromHell, 05.03.2021
Für mich ist das die SG unter den SG´s! Aufgrund des bekannten Virus hat sich die Wartezeit allerdings sehr lange hingezogen... Aber dafür kann keiner was! Und letzten Endes habe ich mich nur noch mehr gefreut, als das schöne Exemplar dann endlich ankam! Wie gewohnt, super verpackt und auch Neuwagengeruch. Geil!
Eingestöpselt, und gleich noch mehr von dem Instrument begeistert. Die Potis arbeiten sauber und reagieren auf kleinste Nuancen. Die Gitarre klingt auch nicht dumpf, wenn ich das Volume runterdrehe; alles bleibt schön klar. Genauso wollte ich das! Über meine Röhrenamps klingt das Schätzchen einfach nur super.
Neue Saiten habe ich trotzdem aufgezogen, auch das Griffbrett habe ich bei der Prozedur gleich geölt. Die voreingestellte Saitenlage war mir etwas zu hoch, aber das ist ja bekanntlich Geschmackssache. Eingestellt ist diese auch fix.
Das einzige Manko war ein Fehler im Klarlack an der Spitze des unteren Horns. Dafür kann Thomann nichts, da scheint die QM von Gibson etwas geschlafen zu haben... Mit etwas 3000er Nasschleifpapier und Spezialpolitur konnte ich diesen Makel aber auch spielend beheben! Von daher - Ich bin voll und ganz zufrieden!

Une SG effectivement vintage
JACKAXE, 07.01.2021
je ne reviens pas sur les caractéristique de la SG. Son vintage effectivement en comparaison à la standard. Et manche fin en comparaison au rounded de me Lespaul.
Très versatile et ultra confortable. Un son root chaud à souhait en jouant sur les potards qui sont très utiles je trouve. Les nuances sont nombreuses.

Enfin c'est ma deuxième car la première est repartie en garantie pour un manche en S. merci à Patrice luthier nantais et merci à thomann pour avoir été au top sur le sujet. Quel service!
