I'm a Fender/Rickenbacker guy...I love the clear trebly sound and because of that I had no desire for a Gibson Les Paul or the SG.
But one day I came across an end of the year blow out sale for the Gibson SG Standard in limited edition finishes. 800 bucks for a brand new SG Standard in limited edition finish including case. Yes, just 800 bucks!
Well, I saw this in Sweetwater's guitar gallery, quickly got the money together before somebody else grabbed it, and bought myself one heck of a nice SG.
Yes, and considering they are now going for nearly twice as much at $1,500, I know I got an insane deal just eight years ago.$800 is a great deal for a Gibson SG Standard.

My SG is a 2012 and I got it brand new for $800. Now, just eight years later that price has skyrocketed to $1,500 for a Standard. That is some rise. I think it's sad. Nice guitars but they are pushing them out of reach of regular Joe bedroom players.
The $800 price tag was soooo great that I spent some more money on Gibson products (so Gibson got more of my money anyway). This all arrived in November of 2012:
