    Got this guy yesterday. 2017 SG Standard. It looks, sounds and plays fantastic. I got a 2017 Special a few weeks ago and loved it so much I had to get a Standard as well. Very glad I did. Gibson is killing it for 2017.

    What's the neck like?

    Beautiful grain.

    Is that the '57 Classic and Classic+ ? How do they sound?

    Enjoy!

    Slim taper neck. Feels fantastic. 57 classic neck and bridge. Sound great. Very versatile. Beautiful cleans and and awesome distorted tones. Ballsy with tons of rich harmonics.

    Beautiful! SG's give amazing cleans don't they? It's not just a rock guitar.

    You have a great looking SG. Congratulations.

    Congrats, now that's an SG!

    And no doubt about it, 2017 is a very, very good year for Gibson.

    Beautifull!!

    I'm looking to get myself a nice SG too, but not sure which years to look at. I read that SGs built between 2000 and 2010 are very good, but what about up until now then? What makes 2017 a good year?? I'm a bit confused... :oops:

    The 2017's have upgraded to the 57 pickups, aluminum bridge and tailpiece and a nice hard case.

    I see. Those are indeed upgrades! This guitar, with the bigger scratch plate and black tophats with silver inserts would be my ideal SG, but I do agree: this is one beautiful guitar!

    I'm not a fan of the big scratchplate. The tophats probably would look good.

    Very nice. I got a 2016 Special and promptly bought a 2016 Standard P90, and I agree that Gibson is doing good work right now. I would not have said that 4 years ago.

    I just played my SG a little while ago. They just have that growl and snap to them that can't be ignored.

    Beautiful hunk o Gibby you have there

    2011-2012 check the fretboard material, personally i like baked maple, some don't

    2013 is a good year AFAIK the standard from that year is a 61 reissue with a stronger neck joint

    2014... anniversary logo on fretboard, robot tuners

    2015... brass nut

    2016... 498T pickups

    2017... 61 reissue, 57 classics, nothing to complain about

    For me, none of the issues are really issues, but I comprehend that some of the changes are not desirable for everyone.
